Terry Collins a finalist for NL Manager of the Year Award
Terry Collins led the Mets on a magical run through October in his first ever trip to the postseason. He won 90 games with the Mets during the regular season in 2015, his fifth season as Mets manager, and won the franchise’s fifth National League pennant in it’s 54-year history.
The Mets manager kept his club afloat in a first half mired by injury, underperformance and a severely fragmented roster, only hoping the likes of David Wright, Travis d’Arnaud, Jerry Blevins could get healthy, and Michael Cuddyer, Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda, and Juan Lagares could find the consistency they originally depended on heading into the season.
For his efforts, Collins has been named a finalist for the National League Manager of the Year Award by the BBWAA.
Collins will contend with Cubs manager Joe Maddon and Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, and the winner will be announced on MLB Network on Tuesday, November 17 at 6:00 pm ET.
In five seasons at the helm of the Mets, Collins has a 394-416 record, but is 169-155 over the last two seasons.
