Andy Martino of the Daily News reported that a front office source told him Terry Collins is not a lock to return as manager of the Mets next season.

What seemed so certain a month ago, has become very foggy according to Martino, and it’s not just reporters who are unsure, he says. There seems to be genuine internal debate and uncertainty over what the team will do/

One well-connected Mets official told him, “I just can’t get a feel for what’s going to happen this time.”

Martino also adds that Collins does have his backers in the organization, but now it appears he has his detractors as well. In short, that in itself is pretty telling and it should make for a very interesting month.

Added another Mets person, on Collins’ chances to return: “I think we have a ways to go before that’s decided.”

I hope Sandy Alderson doesn’t blow this call. What a disaster next season will be with Terry Collins returning as a lame duck.
