That Other NY Team

The NY Mets prolonged managerial search appears to be over. Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mets have selected Terry Collins as their new man. Collins was one of four finalists along with Wally Backman, Bob Melvin, and Chip Hale.

Collins has two previous managerial stints in the majors - the Houston Astros from 1994-1996 and with the Anaheim Angels from 1997-1999. His teams finished second all three years in Houston and he had two second place finishes with the Angels before being fired during the 1999 season. That team finished in 4th place.

The 61-yr old also spent two plus seasons managing in Japan and spent last season as the Mets minor league coordinator.
