Terry Collins: Mets New Manager

It is being reported that Terry Collins, 61, will be the new manager of the New York Mets, pending a contract agreement.

Adam Rubin just tweeted that a source has confirmed Collins will be "leading" the Mets. Davey Johnson's prediction was dead on.

I just hope it was a fair interviewing process, and that it wasn't a charade because DiPodesta wanted Collins all along.

record as a manager is a mediocre 444-434 over six seasons. He previosly managed the Houston Astros (1994-1996) and California Angels (1997-1999).

The big question is can he get through to the players. It has been reported that he lost his clubhouses in both Houston and California.

We will update as information becomes available.

It is being reported that Dave Wallace might be named pitching coach; Collins and Wallace are "very tight." Dan Warthen might be assigned to be roving minor league instructor.

Ken Oberkfell and Chip Hale are believed to be coaches on Collins' staff.
