Mets, Terry Collins to announce two-year contract extension

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets' manager will return after overseeing three years of a rebuilding roster.

The Mets and Terry Collins are set to announce a two-year contract extension on Monday. It's hard to believe, but it's been nearly three years since Collins was first hired to manage the Mets.

Since then, the Mets have gone 224-260, but the poor record is indicative of a poor major league roster more than anything else. Collins has seemingly done a good job with the cards he's been dealt.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson sounded like he was leaning towards bringing Collins back every time he was asked about it this season, and Collins deserves a shot at managing a better team over the next couple of years. That responsibility falls on Alderson's shoulders.

In his appearance in the SNY booth last night, Alderson made it sound like the Mets are ready to turn the corner, noting that trying to win games was not the top priority over the first three years of his tenure. With a ton of payroll flexibility now, though, there's at least a chance that he can put together a competitive team for Collins to manage.
