Terry Collins’ job is safe

The New York Post reports that there is “no chance” that Terry Collins is going to get fired. I don’t think I’ve seen even one person speculating that Collins would or should be fired — the Mets woes are a talent problem, not a management problem, it seems — but it’s for Collins to know that he has some job security.

The key word being “some.” The report suggests that the Mets want to see a strong finish before extending Collins’ contract — it’s up at the end of 2013 and the m.o. for most teams is to not let their skippers enter a season as a lame duck — but compared to the way the last month has gone, it shouldn’t be hard for there to at least be the perception of a rebound.

    Collins has done the best he could with a low-talent roster. It is interesting though how they have fallen apart in the last 2 months

    The League is now savvy to the Met strategy of trying to work hitting counts which worked successfully during the first half of the season.
    The lack of talent is not Collin’s fault.Don’t know any Manager who could win with the current roster.

    I wonder how much he wants to come back, knowing that the only changes are likely to be through prospects coming up. Then again, those prospects could be tantalizing for someone who likes to develop new talent.

    The Mets orginization as a whole has many problems. Terry Collins isn’t one of them.

    Terry Collins’ job is as safe as a skunk with gastrointestinal issues surrounded by a wolfpack – and for the same reason.

    Wait a second. His job is safe because he’s done fine with the talent they have…which isn’t much….but they want to see a strong finish from a team that still has too little talent on it? Huh?

    Mets are loaded with talent. Young talent. Instead of Collins being fired, it should be the bullpen. Anderson, every single Mets fan knows this!

    Mets are tied for 2nd place, 1 behind the Nationals for Quality Starts in MLB
    Mets starters rank 7th in the majors in era
    Mets bullpen is ranked 30th in era
    Mets offense is 18th overall
