New York Mets Select Terry Collins as Manager, ESPN Reports

Nov. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Mets have selected Terry Collins as their manager, ESPN reports, citing an unidentified team official.

Collins, 61, has a Major League Baseball managerial record of 444-434 with the Houston Astros and Anaheim Angels. He hasn’t managed in the majors since 1999, when he was fired by the Angels with 29 games left in the regular season.

The Mets finished below .500 each of the last two seasons and haven’t made the World Series since losing in five games to the New York Yankees in 2000.

Collins, who managed the Orix Buffaloes of Japan in 2007 and 2008, was one of four finalists to replace Jerry Manuel, along with Wally Backman, Chip Hale and Bob Melvin.
