The press conference to introduce Terry Collins commences at 11 tuesday morning and it sorta feels like a blind date… or even worse, a prearranged marriage.
This man is about to be our skipper for the next 2 years and while I’m definitely familiar with his name I really don’t know anything about the guy — aside from the fact that there was a player revolt against him in Anaheim.
Not knowing the details I find it hard to judge, but I will admit I’m a little nervous about tuesday. What if we meet him and don’t like him. What if he seems like an uptight dick as has been whispered about.
We knew who Willie was before he came on board. Art Howe too, albeit to a lesser degree, but I felt like I had a general read on Howe whereas I have virtually no familiarity with Collins.
So I’m excited and apprehensive at the same time about this but I really don’t k ow what to expect…
Perhaps we should bring flowers?
