Comments On Terry Collins Press Conference
The official coronation of Terry Collins occurred today, but I’m at work so didn’t see it live. I’m sure I’ll hear some kind of reaction to it on sportstalk radio for my evening ride home, but in the meantime if you saw the press conference please post your comments by clicking that quote-cloud thing at the right of this post’s title. Thanks.
Holy shit this guy is already on the defensive. That was the dumbest press conference quote since Bobby Bonilla’s “you can’t wipe the smile off my face” comment.
I will cut them both (Collins and Alderson) some slack before passing judgement. I believe 2011 should be considered a re-building year, so my expectations are already lowered. I think many Mets fans would agree. Let’s see what they can do.
And good luck to both!
– a DUI
– an “evil devil”
– learning from past mistakes
– a mentor named Jim Leyland
– playing small ball
– teaching the fundamentals
– experience with Mets minor leaguers
– instilling discipline
– bringing energy to the club
– “fiery” and intense managing
If the guy had a mustache I might’ve thought the Mets just hired Wally Backman.
