As the Mets continue to sputter this season, Terry Collins continues to be sitting on one of the hottest seats in baseball. But if and when the time comes when the Mets cut ties with the franchise’s longest tenured coach, who would be a proper replacement?

The New York Mets have had a lineup of great managers throughout their history from Gil Hodges to Davey Johnson, but you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who’d put Terry Collins in this category, even though he has remained with the club for seven seasons now.

Even though the team has gotten off to an extremely disappointing start and Collins has made a smorgasbord of blunders within the dugout, front office continues to stand by him.

While the front office may have TC’s back at the moment, if this season continues to trend in the wrong direction Collins will ultimately be out of a job, maybe not this season, but certainly at the beginning of 2018.

In life and in sports you should not make decisions without a proper solution. So who would be a proper solution for the New York Mets?

Should the name come from within the organization, or is it time for a completely fresh look? Let’s look.
