Collins and Bobby Valentine (1999-2000) are the only two managers in club history to guide the Mets to consecutive postseason appearances.
The 2015 Collins led Mets lost in five games to the Kansas City Royals in the World Series. The following year the Mets were ousted by the San Francisco Giants in the Wild Card game.
The 67-year old Collins enters tonight with a 498-514 (.492) record as the New York Mets manager. His 514 losses are the most in franchise history and his 498 wins are third trailing Valentine’s 536 and Johnson’s 597.
The former minor league infielder was introduced as the Mets manager on November 20, 2010. Collins received a two-year contract extension following the Mets 2015 World Series run which runs out at the conclusion of the 2017 season.
