"Collins says it’s Rule One for successful managing: “You can’t lose the clubhouse,” is how he put it the other day. You’d be surprised how much relationships matter, even on the major league level, where players dwarf managers in salary and star power.", www.northjersey.com
"Maybe you saw the quote from Terry Collins on Sunday when asked if he had learned anything from last postseason, his first as a major league manager. “Yeah,” the Mets’ skipper responded. “I am going to put Familia in.” The quip brought to mind an odd reality about the defending National League champions: Because the cast of characters has changed so dramatically from last October and November to now, you won’t find many Mets looking for redemption. You’ll usually find far more on a team looking to avenge an ugly World Series defeat. You’ll find a handful, though, starting with the two guys Collins mentioned: Familia and himself. When the Mets kick off (and perhaps end) their 2016 postseason Wednesday night, with the National League wild-card game against the Giants at Citi Field, these five will be trying to redraw their playoff legacies. 1. Jeurys Familia. The most unfairly maligned of any 2015 Met, the closer put up a 0.61", nypost.com
"The turnaround started in San Francisco. Where else would it start? Baseball has a way of bringing everything home. The Mets were a mess. They had lost 16 of 23, and Terry Collins knew the vultures were circling. Before the game, Collins spoke with me in the corner of the first-base dugout. He was not going to give in to the losing, he said. He was going to continue to do it his way. If this was going to be his last year as Mets manager, he was going to have as much fun as possible. All brave words. Then, in a moment of ultimate honesty, Collins said: “But it’s hard here; really, really hard.” Truer words never were spoken. Managing the Mets is hard for so many reasons. The pressures come from everywhere, and in New York, everyone is an expert, including the media. Ownership is demanding and hands-on, but that’s the way it is, and really, that’s the way it should be in New York. Every wrong move Collins made was dissected to the", nypost.com
"There was no escaping the torrent of champagne in the clubhouse, which is what you’d expect from a team on its way to the postseason. The Mets threw themselves a toga party after clinching the wild card on Saturday – and make no mistake, this wasn’t a staged-for-TV event.", www.northjersey.com
"PHILADELPHIA — For some of the Mets, this was a familiar feeling, the thrill that swelled in their throat and moistened their eyes at exactly 4:08 p.m. when a broken-bat flare died in Michael Conforto’s glove in left field, securing an 87th victory, clinching a playoff slot for the second year in a row, guaranteeing a baseball game Wednesday night at Citi Field. The manager, for one. “There’s nothing like this,” Terry Collins said in the visiting manager’s office at Citizen’s Bank Park, maybe 20 minutes after the Mets had beaten the Phillies, 5-3. “This is why you play.” His cell phone was jangling with calls and texts, the usual assortment of greetings from all over the country, all across his 45 years in baseball. He was sopping wet, thanks to five of his especially exuberant players who had emptied the equivalent of a 12-pack of Budweiser over his head a few minutes earlier. His hat read: POSTSEASON 2016. His", nypost.com
"PHILADELPHIA — Lucas Duda still is readjusting to the grind of a baseball season. The Mets first baseman, whom manager Terry Collins had hoped to start in consecutive games this weekend, was absent from Saturday’s starting lineup because of stiffness in his legs. Duda has started consecutive games only once since returning from a stress fracture in his lower back Sept. 17. James Loney started at first base Saturday and hit a two-run homer in the Mets’ 5-3 wild card-clinching victory over the Phillies. “I talked to [Duda] after the game [Friday] night, and he’s another one of those guys who in the future will never bad mouth spring training,” Collins said. “He now knows what it’s about and that is trying to get into shape during the season is hard. There is no way to prepare except play and get yourself in game shape and to do it in the pennant race and all the pressures is a lot.” Duda has a .263/.391/.368 slash line in", nypost.com
"MILWAUKEE — In the land of bratwurst came the Mets’ worst. Blah pitching by Steven Matz, shoddy defense and a lethargic performance from the lineup combined to crush the Mets on Sunday in a stinky conclusion to their 10-game road trip. With manager Terry Collins absent to undergo tests at a local hospital after feeling ill before the game — bench coach Dick Scott called the shots — the Mets might as well have been the school kids who checked out mentally on the substitute teacher. In the end, the Mets lost 5-3 to the Brewers to finish with a split in the four-game series and a .500 road trip. Matz (7-3) had his shakiest start since his season debut, allowing five runs — one of which was unearned — on nine hits over six innings to receive his second straight loss. Defensively, the Mets tied a season-high with three errors, and the lineup was muted against Brewers starter Zach Davies (5-3) before showing a brief revival in the late", nypost.com
"MILWAUKEE (AP) — Mets manager Terry Collins was being taken to a hospital on Sunday for precautionary tests after not feeling well before New York's series finale against Milwaukee. Assistant general manager John Ricco said Collins became ill about 45 minutes before the game in Milwaukee, and was treated by a Mets trainer and the Brewers' team physician.", www.sfchronicle.com
"MILWAUKEE -- Terry Collins was taken to a local hospital Sunday for tests, after feeling ill during pregame at Miller Park. Bench coach Dick Scott was set to step in and manage the Mets for their game against the Brewers. Collins, 67, was advised by a team doctor and trainer Ray Ramirez to leave for the hospital after encountering unspecified symptoms. “Afterwards he was feeling OK,” assistant general manager John Ricco said. “But we’re just kind of being cautious here.”", nypost.com
