Mets manager Terry Collins not nominated for Manager of the Year

Yes, that’s right, the Mets Manager was not nominated by voters for NL Manager of the Year.

Was any Mets fan really surprised when they received the below update? We weren’t. You shouldn’t have been.

Terry Collins had his moments this season, and last season, and the season before that. To say the least. Let’s just take a quick look at some of this past season’s Rising Apple headlines about the Mets manager.

Yes, Terry Collins brought the Mets to the wildcard game, despite all of the injuries and obstacles of the season – and that is something to be admired.

We even said that Terry Collins was not to blame when the Mets were eliminated. But, voting is completed before the postseason begins. And, it should not come as a shock to anyone that he was not nominated for NL Manager of the Year.

The Nationals’ Manager Dusty Baker, the Cubs’ Joe Maddon, and the Dodgers’ Dave Roberts were all nominated by voters, and all three deserve to be nominated. On the AL side, the Rangers’ Jeff Banister, the Indians’ Terry Francona, and the Orioles’ Buck Showalter were all nominated.
