Meet the Mets

Mets owner Fred Wilpon reportedly blocked the firing of Terry Collins multiple times during the manager’s tenure. But it looks like Collins and the team will part ways this offseason, when the manager’s contract expires.

Pitching coach Dan Warthen might be on his way out as well after a season in which his famed slider lost its mystique.

One person who apparently will be spared from the chopping block: trainer Ray Ramirez.

The Mets are reportedly interested in Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo to replace Collins.

The team will explore an extension of ace Jacob deGrom over the offseason.
