As expected the Mets announced that Terry Collins will return as manager, signing a two-year contract extension that includes a team option for 2016. Collins’ entire coaching staff will also return.
Collins has a 225-261 (.463) record in three seasons on the job, winning 77, 74, and 74 games, but certainly the Mets haven’t exactly given him a talent-rich roster to work with and if nothing else he’s cut down on the overall level of drama associated with the team in recent years.
Our resident Mets fan D.J. Short is fine with Collins returning, so that’s enough for me.
