Mets manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York on Thursday that 2017 could be his final season.
Collins, who turns 68 next May, is the oldest manager in the majors. He plans to wait until after next season before deciding, but he felt worn down during the second half this year due to the demands and traveling associated with the job. "I just need to re-evaluate at the end of this coming year what's going on, where I am, how I'm feeling," said Collins. "I've always said a lot of it will be dictated by how I'm feeling. This was a tough year." Collins owns a 481-491 record over six seasons as New York's skipper. 2017 is the final year of his contract with the Mets. Thu, Oct 13, 2016 05:47:00 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins has been cleared to head home to New York.

Collins was hospitalized Sunday morning in Milwaukee after coming down with an illness and the decision was made to keep him there overnight while the rest of the Mets traveled back to New York ahead of a Tuesday-Thursday three-game set against the visiting Pirates. Collins is expected to return to the dugout for Tuesday's series opener after getting the all-clear from doctors at Froedtert Hospital. Mets bench coach Dick Scott filled in for Sunday's loss.

The Cleveland Browns hired Mets vice president of player development Paul DePodesta to serve as chief strategy officer.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post was the first to break this news. It's official now. According to Sherman, the Browns started looking at DePodesta following the World Series. They're in the midst of an organizational sea change, having just fired HC Mike Pettine and GM Ray Farmer. For his part, DePodesta's served as Mets' vice president of player development and scouting since 2010. It was conceivable that he could have taken over the mantle of GM from Sandy Alderson in the future (eventually), but that's obviously off the table. It's a tough break for the Mets, as DePodesta served as a right-hand man to Alderson.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson will miss the Winter Meetings after being diagnosed with cancer.

Some obviously rotten news for the Mets' head man, although the Mets say the cancer is treatable. Alderson's role with the club will continue, although he could be limited at times. Assistant GM John Ricco will step in at the Winter Meetings and at any other times Alderson may be unavailable.

According to Mets GM Sandy Alderson, the team is inviting all their coaches to return for the 2016 campaign.

Manager Terry Collins received a two-year extension on Tuesday and on Wednesday, GM Alderson indicated that the team's inviting back the coaching staff that helped them to the World Series. On a related note, Mets bench coach Bob Geren will be interviewing with the Dodgers regarding the managerial vacancy that opened with the departure of Don Mattingly.

Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports that the Mets and manager Terry Collins have agreed to a two-year contract extension.

The Mets had a club option for 2016, but they've gone ahead and added a year onto Collins' deal and also given him a raise. The skipper entered the season on the hot seat but went on to lead the Mets to 90 regular-season wins and the National League pennant. New York should be a playoff contender again in 2016 on the strength of their terrific young rotation.

Mets general manger Sandy Alderson and manager Terry Collins will address the media Wednesday at 11 a.m. ET.

The thought is that there will be some news on Collins' contractual status. Previous reports have indicated that he would prefer a two-year contract. The Mets currently hold a club option for 2016.
Tue, Nov 3, 2015 02:43:00 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Mets manager Terry Collins is expected to meet with general manager Sandy Alderson on Tuesday.

Collins' contract status is expected to be addressed in the meeting. The Mets hold a 2016 club option on Collins, but the expectation is that he'll get a new multi-year deal. It would be well-deserved after taking the Mets to the World Series.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Mets manager Terry Collins is telling friends that he'd be happy with a two-year extension.

Collins is in the final guaranteed year of his contract with the Mets, but he's a no-brainer to return after winning the NL East and taking the team to the brink of the World Series. Collins is 66 and wants to spend time with his wife, so he's likely not going to ask for more than two years. He's currently in his fifth season as New York's manager.

The Mets have hired Kevin Long as hitting coach.

Long was recently let go by the Yankees after eight seasons on the job, but he'll now be reunited with Curtis Granderson in Queens. The Mets fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens back in May and let go of Lamar Johnson, his replacement, and assistant hitting coach Luis Natera following the season.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Mets will interview former Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long on Wednesday for the same position with their club.

Mike Puma of the New York Post reported earlier this month that Long would receive consideration for the job, and it appears that he will indeed interview. The Yankees struggled offensively the last two seasons, but they had been terrific prior to that during Long's tenure.

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Kevin Long will get consideration for the Mets hitting coach vacancy.

The Mets fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens in May, and opted to part ways with his replacement Lamar Johnson after the season. Long was just relieved of his duties in the same position for the crosstown Yankees after eight seasons.

The Mets confirmed Tuesday that Terry Collins will return as manager of the Mets in 2015.

Meanwhile, the Mets officially announced that general manager Sandy Alderson will receive a contract extension through 2017. Collins has yet to have a winning season during his tenure in New York, but he has done a respectable job with the talent afforded to him and deserves an opportunity to manage a team seemingly on the verge of contention.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 03:22:00 PM

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets will announce an extension for general manager Sandy Alderson on Tuesday.

It was originally expected to be announced after the season, but the Mets are moving up the timetable, likely because news of the extension leaked on Monday. Alderson had an option on his contract for 2015, but the Mets will give him a new three-year deal which sets the stage for him to see his plan through. According to various reports, the Mets also plan to bring back manager Terry Collins for 2015.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets are picking up their 2015 option on GM Sandy Alderson and "progressing toward" a contract extension.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says it'll be a three-year deal; now let's see if ownership allows him to spend some money. The Mets are headed to their fourth straight losing season under Alderson, but the club has developed a decent nucleus of players (especially on the pitching staff) and will push forward with the former A's and Padres executive at the helm. The Mets are also bringing back manager Terry Collins for the 2015 season.
