Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins will hold a 12 p.m. ET press conference today at Citi Field, which will air live on SNY.
According to multiple reports, the two are likely to announce a new two-year contract extension for Terry Collins, which includes a 2016 option.
According to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, the deal will be worth roughly $1 million a season.
“Collins gets a two-year contract, but really a one-year judgment,” Sherman said. “Win next year or bye.”

I know what Collins has done with the weak roster he had been given, and I appreciate it. But, I’d still like to hear why he is the right man to manage the next Mets… assuming the next Mets will be more talented and capable of success. That said, I like that this is an easy-to-replace contract. Yes, he’s a “lame duck.” So, what? Is that such a bad thing? I still contend that Collins will not be manager when this team next makes a serious run at the playoffs. I’d bet they do better next year, stumble a bit in 2015, he’s replaced and that newer guy is who leads them to October. I say this, only because it is such a common script… just ask Buck Showalter.
