There could be only one season left in the tank for New York Mets manager Terry Collins. The 67-year-old is the oldest manager in baseball and his age and physical condition could be determining factors to the future of his career with the Mets. “I just need to reevaluate at the end of this coming year what’s going on, where I am, how I’m feeling,” Collins told ESPN on Thursday. “I’ve always said a lot of it will be dictated by how I’m feeling. This was a tough year.”
Collins added that if he feels the way he does now at the end of the 2017 season, he will probably retire. The 2015 season ended abruptly in the National League wildcard playoff against the San Francisco Giants. But the team had to fight just to get there. Collins helped lead the Mets to the World Series in 2015, by far his best season under the Mets. In six years with New York, he had compiled a 483-493 record.
