NY Post: Mets In No Rush To Extend Collins’ Contract
In case you were wondering about manager Terry Collins’ contract status, here’s this from the NY Post:
Terry Collins has done a “super” job, according to his boss, but that doesn’t mean the Mets are rushing to the manager with a contract extension.
“That’s something we’ll not even think about until the end of this season,” general manager Sandy Alderson told The Post before the Mets’ 11-7 victory over the NL East rival Braves.
Collins signed a two-year contract with the Mets last offseason and would head into 2012 as a lame duck if his deal isn’t extended. The 62-year-old Collins has said he isn’t concerned with the length of his contract or the prospect of becoming a lame duck.
In his first year at the helm, Terry Collins has turned most of his detractors into avid supporters. The players love him and he get the most out of them.
Collins has instilled a great work ethic into that clubhouse and a fighting spirit to go with it.
He’s earned an extension.
