When the Mets renewed Terry Collins‘ contract at the end of September once the season had concluded, it was also announced that the entire coaching staff would return as well. This announcement didn’t come as a huge shock, but it was conceivable due to the fact that the crew has been the same since the start of the 2012 campaign. There has been criticism, praise, doubt, hopefulness, hopelessness, and devotion to the staff, but it […]
Updated 9/29 Andy Martino reports: Terry Collins and the Mets do not have a deal yet for a contract extension, but they are very close. People familiar with the negotiations told the Daily News to expect a news conference midday Monday to announce a two-year, approximately $2 million deal for the manager (that’s a raise from the approximately $800,000 per year he was earning under his previous contract).

The Mets’ private expectations for Johan Santana’s April 1 availability are even […]

The projected fifth starter, Marcum, raised concerns when he didn’t report to camp in shape. Here is a guy trying to hang onto a major league job and got a $4 million guaranteed contract from the Mets. He doesn’t come to camp ready to pitch and […]
