Mike Puma of the New York Post reported Tuesday that the New York Mets will not renew the contract of manager Terry Collins for the 2018 season. Puma added that the Mets are considering several options for their next manager, including Robin Ventura, Alex Cora, Kevin Long, Bob Geren and Chip Hale. While the Mets reportedly have no plans to bring Collins back, Puma noted that they may allow the 68-year-old Collins to announce his retirement rather than saying they are moving on. All of the managerial candidates Puma mentioned have ties to the Mets organization. Ventura played third base for the Mets from 1999 through 2001. Most recently, he served as manager for the Chicago White Sox from 2012 through 2016.
