Do or Die For Collins

Is there any accountability where the Mets are concerned? That seems to be the overwhelming sentiment after it was confirmed that Terry Collins would be returning for his fifth year as Mets manager. With his 301-342 record as skipper of the Mets in tow, Collins will once again be charged with the pursuit of a 90 win season. Last Spring “it wasn’t a goal,” says Sandy Alderson...

Three much-needed positives of Terry Collins returning to the Mets

Mets fans are an odd group of individuals that always seem to disagree, but when it comes to management there seems to be a universal agreement. This agreement is that two of the three levels of upper management are not living up to their expectations. These two levels are the owners (The Wilpons) and the manager (Terry Collins). The Wilpons are not going anywhere, much to our dismay...

Poll: Has Strong Finish Changed Your Mind On Terry Collins?

It’s been obvious for most of this season that Terry Collins wouldn’t be fired before the end 2014. By most accounts he was handed a deck that was only half full and deserved a chance with this team at full strength; or whatever Sandy Alderson’s version of full strength is. Fans that don’t believe in Collins point to his in-game management as a sign of weakness. Every week...

Collins Blowing Smoke; It’s Flores’ Job To Lose

Terry Collins insists shortstop will be wide open next spring, but what else can he say? Even after Wilmer Flores homered twice and drove in six runs Tuesday night in a 9-1 rout of the Marlins, and has driven in 10 runs over the last four games, Collins is dancing the politically correct line. He has to. FLORES: Should get job. (Getty) He can’t give the job to Flores outright,...

Dropping Granderson says tons about Collins; d’Arnaud’s hot bat

Friday night, Mets manager Terry Collins made the decision to drop the struggling Curtis Granderson from the top of the lineup to the sixth hole.  He made an inclination that this will be a longer-term move rather than a one-or-two-game banishment. Granderson entered play Friday hitting a paltry .211/.313/.354.  Since the All-Star break it is even worse, with Granderson hitting...
