Collins Finds Himself On Shaky Ground

I had some additional thoughts on Terry Collins after Friday night’s developments. Nobody knows what was said and what transpired when Sandy Alderson met with Collins behind closed doors prior to the Mets 5-4 win. But wouldn’t you have loved to have been a fly on the wall?

What could Terry Collins do differently?

The Mets are now ten games out of first place as they begin an 11 game home stand that leads into the All-Star break.  The last road trip through Pittsburgh and Atlanta was a “gut-punch” to a team that was striving so hard to get over a trend of losing close games.  The Mets lost six of seven, by a total of eleven runs, continuing their ineptness at situational hitting thus...
