With the season now over, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson will have to get to work right away to fill the holes so the Mets can try to get back to the World Series. His first order of business is to decide the fate of Terry Collins, who could theoretically—but is unlikely to be—set free after managing the Mets to within a few wins of a championship.
Alderson and Collins are expected to meet today to discuss Collins's contract. The Mets hold a team option for 2016, and after making a trip to the World Series, at the very least the Mets are expected to pick up that option. The bigger question is whether the two sides will work out an extension to keep Collins with the Mets beyond next season. Collins is the oldest manager in the big leagues at age 66 and he has made it clear he only wants to manage for a couple more seasons.
Hopefully, the two sides can come to a quick resolution and Alderson can focus on restocking his team for another run in 2016.
