Me and Terry Became Friends

As a friend said, Terry Collins may have been fifth on my list of the final four candidates to become the next Mets manager but now that he is, I guess we owe him a shot. He’s got some admirers among the bright minds of the Mets front office, he was a finalist the last time they held these interviews, and his teams in two previous stops have performed pretty well if not ended that way. We’ll wait for the press conference Tuesday to comfirm it, but I’d expect they have him appear in the No. 1 jersey, even though it currently belongs to Luis Castillo.

    Castillo, Shmastillo!

    #10, Terry Collins

    New Mets manager Terry Collins, at his introductory press conference this morning, sounded all the right notes about intensity and the need to play fundamentally sound baseball.

    He sounded great.

    But he was wearing #10. As in Jeff Torborg’s number. As in “Wait until you see Bill Pecota.” Oy! Couldn’t they have given him something less inauspicious?

    That said, Collins is likely to be more like Dallas Green than the ‘Borg.
