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.
Nov 3 - 2:43 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.

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.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Mets manager Terry Collins is expected to return in 2015.

The Mets are tracking toward their sixth straight losing season, but Collins can't be blamed for the lack of productive talent on the current active roster. With ace Matt Harvey due to return from Tommy John surgery and some younger players beginning to blossom, expectations will certainly be raised for the 2015 campaign. It will be the fifth season on the job for Collins.

The Mets have fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens.

It's a bit of an empty gesture, especially considering the lack of talent on the roster, but Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said that he has been unsatisfied with the team's situational hitting and their performance at home compared to the road. Lamar Johnson, the team's minor league hitting coordinator, will replace Hudgens.
