Despite finishing up the season in fourth place, The New York Mets are staying the course when it comes to Manager Terry Collins.  Yesterday the team picked up Collins option for 2013.  This is his first gig as manager since being the skipper of the Angels in 1999.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson said that it was important to pick up the option now so that the media didn’t start to call him a lame duck for the 2012 season.  Being that the Mets were riddled with injury, and were involved in a massive ponzi scheme Collins did the best with the tools that were provided to him.  He was also without his pitching ace Johan Santana, who was out for the 2011 season recovering from corrective surgery.

This is the third straight losing season for the Mets, but Collins style of managing has won over not only the current players, but Mets alum as well.  For more on this story check out
