I hope you like your Collins in New York, because you’re going to be seeing a lot more of him. Fresh off their impressive 2015 run to the World Series, the Mets have agreed to an two year extension for manager Terry Collins. Collins is expected to make 3 Million over the course of the contract. It is expected that this will be Collins’ final contract before retirement.
His career record with the Mets is 394-416 in five seasons. He also managed three years apiece with the Angels and Astros in the 1990s.
Collins already has been voted by his peers as the NL Manager of the Year in a poll by the Sporting News. He will be a contender for the official Baseball Writers’ Association of America award to be announced on Nov. 17, with other candidates including the Cubs’ Joe Maddon and Cardinals’ Mike Matheny.
Collins has noted he has become more of a player-friendly manager with the Mets than during his tenures with the Astros and Angels two decades ago.
