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.
