Collins resigns as Mets manager
After the New York Mets finished the MLB season with a 70-92 record, manager Terry Collins resigned.
Terry Collins resigned as New York Mets manager following Sunday's 11-0 loss against the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Mets finished the season with a 70-92 record after being considered a postseason contender to start the MLB campaign, but the club battled through a litany of injuries.
Despite the tough season, Collins said after the game that he plans on remaining a part of baseball.
"I've done it a long time, I've been in the game a long time, and I'm not going anywhere, I'm going to stay in it the best I can,"Â Collins told reporters.
"This is a sour taste, there's no question about it. We certainly had bigger plans than what occurred, but there are some things you've got to be able to do, and I think this is best for the organisation and I'm a team player."

When asked what his next role will be, Collins said "I don't know, I haven't talked to the boss about that justÂ yet".
Collins, who led the Mets to the Wold Series in 2015, stepped down as the longest-tenured manager in Mets history albeit with a career record below .500.
