ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Mets hitting coach Kevin Long is "regarded as the favorite" at this juncture for the team's managerial opening.
It's not a surprise since he's the only one who has interviewed so far. The process figures to be fluid, with Astros bench coach Alex Cora, White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing and former Nationals and Indians skipper Manny Acta all interviewing for the job this week. Long has been a hitting coach in the majors since 2007 with the Yankees and then the Mets and had some minor league managerial experience prior to that. Oct 16 - 5:08 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that former Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus declined to be interviewed for the Mets' vacant manager job.

Heyman also says that former White Sox manager Robin Ventura -- who had been considered a likely candidate -- hasn't shown interest in the gig and isn't in the mix. Astros bench coach Alex Cora will interview with the Mets on Tuesday and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing will interview Wednesday. ESPN's Buster Olney also reports that former Nationals and Indians skipper Manny Acta will interview later this week. To this point, Mets hitting coach Kevin Long is the only one who has interviewed for the job.
Oct 16 - 4:57 PM

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets will likely interview Astros bench coach Alex Cora for their managerial vacancy on Monday or Tuesday.

The timing makes sense with the Astros in town to face the Yankees in the ALCS. Cora reportedly interviewed with the Red Sox over the weekend and is considered the club's top candidate for the job. White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing is expected to interview with the Mets on Wednesday, though he is also under consideration for the Tigers' job. Kevin Long, Robin Ventura, Chip Hale, Bob Geren, and Sandy Alomar, Jr. are among the other names who have been linked to the opening with the Mets.
Oct 16 - 11:44 AM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets plan to interview Kevin Long for their managerial opening "within the next few days."

Long, the Mets' current hitting coach, was called a potential frontrunner for the job on the same day Terry Collins resigned. Robin Ventura, Chip Hale, Joe McEwing, and Sandy Alomar Jr. are some of the other known candidates.
Oct 12 - 12:36 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that Indians first base coach Sandy Alomar Jr. is getting "strong consideration" to be interviewed for the Mets' managerial vacancy.

Alomar Jr. was a catching instructor with the Mets from 2008-09 before being hired by the Indians before the 2010 season. He's served in a variety of roles in Cleveland, including briefly as an interim manager in 2012 after Manny Acta was fired. Alomar was reportedly a finalist for the Blue Jays' manager job when it went to John Farrell.
Oct 6 - 1:57 PM

Mets' manager Terry Collins officially resigned following Sunday's game against the Phillies.

Collins will remain with the organization, taking a role in the club's front office. The Mets went 551-583 in his seven seasons at the helm, capturing the National League pennant in 2015. Robin Ventura and Kevin Long are the current front runners to replace him.
Oct 1 - 11:34 PM

The Athletics' Ken Rosenthal reports that Mets manager Terry Collins will announce after Sunday's game that he's resigning and will take a front office role.

It's been one of the worst-kept secrets in baseball that Collins wouldn't be back in 2018, and it appears it will become official soon. The Mets went 551-582 in seven seasons under Collins, winning a National League pennant in 2015. Mike Puma of the New York Post reported over the weekend that former White Sox manager Robin Ventura and Mets hitting coach Kevin Long "stand out as early front runners" for the Mets' manager job.
Oct 1 - 3:54 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post writes that former White Sox manager Robin Ventura and Mets hitting coach Kevin Long "stand out as early front runners" for the Mets' manager job.

Puma adds the caveat that the search is expected to take "several weeks" and is "wide open," but it appears that Ventura and Long are early favorites. The White Sox went just 375-435 in five seasons under Ventura and didn't have a winning season after his first year, but Puma says that his "strong relationship" with owners Fred Wilpon and Jeff Wilpon is a benefit. Puma writes that general manager Sandy Alderson and Jeff Wilpon "are intrigued by the idea of promoting Long to manager, but Fred Wilpon may have to be sold on the idea."
Sep 30 - 7:51 PM

Adam Rubin of the New York Post reports that the Mets have already reached out to potential managerial candidates to replace Terry Collins.

In the worst kept secret in baseball, Collins is expected to be informed as early as Monday that his contract will not be renewed for 2018. Robin Ventura, Alex Cora and Kevin Long have already been identified as "early persons of interest" for the Mets.
Sep 30 - 9:46 AM

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Terry Collins is expected to be informed as early as next Monday that his contract won't be renewed for next season.

Previous reports have indicated the same thing, so it appears to be a foregone conclusion at this point. The Mets have had all sorts of injuries this season, so their poor season can't be blamed on Collins alone, but this could be the ideal time to start with a clean slate. According to Puma, Robin Ventura, Alex Cora and Kevin Long are "early persons of interest" as the club compiles a list of potential replacements. Bob Geren and Chip Hale could also be in the mix. The search should intensity soon.
Sep 26 - 9:12 AM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Mets are unlikely to retain manager Terry Collins beyond this season.

Collins' contract is up at the end of the year, which makes it easy for the team to move on. The Mets have obviously been a major disappointment this year following playoff appearances in their previous two seasons. It's not fair to blame it all on Collins—the Mets have been hampered by injuries all season. But with New York headed for a rebuild, it may make sense to bring in a new voice. Collins has been the Mets' skipper since 2011.
Aug 24 - 4:28 PM

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.

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.
