Days after falling to the Royals in the World Series, the Mets and manager Terry Collins have agreed to a two-year contract extension. CBS Sports MLB Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed the deal, and the team is expected to make an announcement Wednesday.
Collins, 66, just completed his fifth season and first winning season with the Mets. This year, the Mets won 90 games in the regular season, fended off the heavily favored Nationals for the NL East title and won the pennant. Across those five seasons in Queens, Collins has a record of 394-416 (.486).
Collins previously managed the Angels for parts of three seasons from 1997-99 (220-237, .481) and Astros for three seasons from 1994-96 (224-197, .532). This past season was the first in which a Collins-led team made the playoffs.
