Mets manager Terry Collins’ future with the club will be determined after the season, GM Sandy Alderson said on Friday. Speaking after Alderson, Collins — whose three-year contract expires at the end of the season — said the focus for the remainder of the season will be on the team, not his status. Though he has yet to make a final decision, the Mets expect Collins to retire, team sources told Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert. Similarly, while the Mets are expected to let Collins determine his fate, they have yet to tell him if they intend to make a change at manager. “He has told friends in baseball that he may not be ready for retirement yet and would likely keep his options open, even

Unlike the summer, in fall, Citi Field isn’t just another fun activity to add to your already jam-packed calendar of vacation plans, trips and events. Instead, it becomes a stand-alone treat for families – a break from that fall, back to school (and work) routine that holds its own as a special family outing. For kids, a day at the ballpark is a fun occasion where they get to be right in the middle of all the action – watching the game, participating in special activities, eating great food and picking up fun Mets swag. Plus, over the weekend, there are more activities for kids at Citi Field than simply watching the game. After every Sunday home game, your family can get priority access to run

Mets rookie infielder Phillip Evans has at least one hit in six of 11 games since being added to the roster on Sept. 8. In 21 brief at bats, he is batting .333, while playing second and third base. Evans, 24, had been hitting .279 with 26 doubles, three triples, 11 home runs and 56 RBI in 127 games during what was his first season in Triple-A.  He was drafted by the Mets in the 15th round of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of La Costa Canyon (CA) High School. Last season, despite never appearing on an organizational top prospect list, he won the Eastern League batting title with Binghamton after hitting .335 (121-361) in his first season in Double-A.

This past week on SNY’s Mets Insider, Keith Hernandez said if Juan Lagares can hit hit just a bit more, because of his outstanding defense, he is still viable as an everyday center fielder. “If he can hit .260, he can play for me any day,” Hernandez added. In 163 games played since the start on 2016, Lagares has started just 80 times. He recently told the Daily News that he is not satisfied being a fourth outfielder, which is how he has spent the majority of the last two seasons with the Mets. “I don’t see myself as a backup outfielder,” he explained. “I still feel like I can play every day. This is the time for me to show that.” Lagares has seen a significant increase in playing during the August

It is unlikely both infielders Asdrubal Cabrera and Jose Reyes are back with the Mets next season, an anonymous team official told Newsday beat reporter Marc Carig. “Probably unlikely, but possible,” the source said. According to Carig, of the two, Cabrera is more likely to be back than Reyes, though team officials acknowledge that both men could have value next season as utility players. Similarly, both Cabrera and Reyes have recently told reporters they’d like to return in 2018. “I want to come back here because I feel this team is going to be in the playoffs again really soon,” Cabrera recently told reporters, according to Carig. “We’ve got talent.” The Mets can retain Cabrera for one more

The New York Daily News is reporting that the New York Mets are expecting manager Terry Collins to retire after this year. The 68-year-old Collins has been with New York since 2011, racking up 578 wins (and counting) along with a National League pennant and back-to-back trips to the playoffs. Of course, as with most things Mets, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a simple affair.

The Mets expect manager Terry Collins to retire at the end of the season, sources tell Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News. Collins and the Mets haven’t discussed an extension on his current contract, which expires at season’s end. Collins, 67, has managed the Mets for the last seven seasons.

The Mets’ season hasn’t shaped up to be even close to what they hoped it would be. They are sitting in fourth place in their division at a woeful 55-71, with injuries mounting up left and right and basically their entire pitching rotation having missed time throughout the year if not the majority of the season. The next loss (that is if nobody else gets injured in the next month-plus of time) is now looking to be manager Terry Collins, according to reports from FanRagSports’ Jon Heyman. No one’s saying it, but people around the team all seem to be assuming there’s almost no way he’ll be back — whether it be due to his choice or the team’s. No one expected the Mets to be 55-70, and it may not

In addition to being the only Mets manager to take a team to back-to-back playoffs (Bobby Valentine in 1999 and 2000), Collins also recently passed Valentine as the second-winningest manager in franchise history.May

In light of that, many have speculated that the Mets may not tender the arbitration-eligible Harvey a contract for 2018, making him a free agent. While many times may accept that for a chance to see if Harvey could rebound, the Mets are not in the habit of spending money they aren’t obligated to spend. A significant factor for the Mets, not to be underestimated, is avoiding the potential embarrassment that would come if Harvey were non-tendered by the team and then regained his form pitching elsewhere next season.

The Mets have two veteran infielders who are having good second halves — Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera. With the way the roster is currently constructed, one of them will probably find himself with the team next year, possibly even with a starting role. Which one has the better case? Asdrubal Cabrera
