Am I disappointed Wally didn’t get the gig? Yeah
Am I surprised? No
Am I unhappy with Collins? Not at all
I think at this point Met fans have to give Alderson and his regime our full confidence. I gotta believe the Mets have a more defined direction, not to mention less meddling from Jeffy, than we’ve had in recent history. Since this is what we all wanted we’ve got to trust smart moves are being made.
So BMF for one. Is going to choose to trust in Collins until I have reason not to.
There are some odd stories about players uniting against him in ANA but I don’t really know the dirty details and who’s to say he didn’t learn from that experience over a decade ago.
I’m really looking forward to the tues press conf when we’ll get a chance to hear from Terry and begin to get to know him.
I hope Wally gets another managing gig as opposed to a big league coaching job. I’d love to see Wally work his way up and succeed Collins in a few years. Allowing Wally to grow with a generation of players can become a great Met story if they all work their way up to the bigs together.
But of course we’re still waiting on official word on all of this…
