Mets won't discuss Terry Collins's contract until after the season

Collins may be in line for an extension, but the Mets won't address it midseason.

Sandy Alderson said today at a public appearance in Brooklyn that the Mets will be waiting until after the season to discuss manager Terry Collins’s contract.

The Mets have a club option on Collins’s contract for 2016, but with the success the Mets have had so far this year, Collins is probably in line for a contract extension. The Mets' manager is currently making around $1 million in his sixth year with the Mets after receiving a two-year extension following the 2013 season.

Collins's 376-402 record with the Mets isn’t much to look at, though earlier this season he passed Gil Hodges to become the third winningest manager in Mets history, and is close to bringing the Mets their first division title and postseason appearance since 2006. Love him or hate him for some of the in-game decisions he makes, but Collins surely deserves some credit for his team's surprising performance this year. Whether you think he's deserving or not, he'll garner plenty of support for the honor of Manager of the Year, an award that is often reflexively given to the skipper of whichever team most outperformed expectations.
