Terry Collins’ contract was widely reported as a two-year deal, but Andy Martino reports that there is a team option for 2013.
This likely doesn’t change the equation we discussed yesterday — the team still has him on a relatively short leash compared to other managers — but it’s not quite as short as, say, Ken Macha’s last deal with the Brewers. Any bit of success and the lack of ugliness in the clubhouse and the press will likely turn this into a three-year deal.
