Terry Collins: MY Reactions


This is about all the excitement I can spit out regarding the latest Mets manager. For all of the postulating about Bobby V’s return, a rapid ascent for Wally Backman, or even an outside chance of Joe Torre, the Mets new management thought long and hard…

…and gave us a 61-year old pile of vanilla.

I’ve read all the reports about Terry Collins’ supposed “fiery nature.” I’ve heard them say how “intense” he is with players and management alike. And yet, all I see is two potential years of boredom…

…well that, and an decidedly unimpressive record as a major league manager.

But let’s not forget about 1999, when Collins had so many problems with Mo Vaughn (and subsequently, the rest of the Anaheim Angels) that the team signed a petition to have him removed. He ultimately resigned from his job.

Yes, this was a long time ago. But I highly doubt advancing into his golden years has made him easier to deal with.

OH, don’t let me forget that Collins hasn’t held a major league managing job since 1999. He spent last year languishing within the Mets’ farm system as a field…um…talent…um…minor league…um — ah f–k it, who knows what he was doing for the organization last year.

But he’s a safe choice. He won’t do anything moronic like Jerry. He won’t waffle with the media like Willie. He won’t kick dirt on sacred umpire pants like Wally. He’ll be safe…and level-headed…and boring.

And, if anyone is making the same Sandy Alderson-Art Howe comparisons as I am right now, let me know.

Alderson. DePodesta. Ricciardi. By all accounts, this menage-a-management should be gutting this team and building a winner. But instead, their first move as a trio was safe, vanilla move that demonstrated none of the supposed new look we’ve been promised.

As a long time, long suffering fan, I’m tired of empty promises.
