Mets Start New Era With Collins, Alderson

The New York Mets ushered in a new era in GM Sandy Alderson announcing the hiring of the fiery Terry Collins as Manager. Collins previously was managing the Mets farm team. At his introductory news conference Collins said he hopes to lead the Mets to the Promised Land! Well Hallelujah! Praise The Lord! I hope so!

After donning his new Mets uniform and cap he declared "I'm full of enthusiasm... I've learned to mellow a bit, but my love for the game itself leads me to wanting the game to be played correctly and that will never take a second step to anything. I'm not the evil devil that a lot of people have made me out to be". He praised the Mets roster and it sounds like the core might stay pretty much intact. We'll see. He said "We've got a lot of talented guys. We've got to let them play their game".

And so It seems like Terry Collins will be a colorful, interesting guy to watch and listen to, much like Jerry Manual and Willie Randolph of recent Mets Managerial history. Whether he can lead us to the Promised Land is to be seen. He says that there's no reason why they shouldn't be a winning team. It ought to be entertaining to watch him try anyway.

It's exciting to see a whole new regime for the New York Mets. It's gonna be a fresh new start. Let's hope they restore respectability to a team with great history in MLB. Terry Collins, welcome to New York!
