Report: Too early to say TC return likely

NEW YORK -- Refuting a published report from Wednesday, Joel Sherman in the Post reports that it's far from certain Terry Collins will return as Mets manager in 2015. Writes Sherman:

Yes, if his 2015 status had to be announced today, then there would be a slight lean -- emphasis on slight -- to bring him back. But the decision is not being made today and the decision-makers and the decision remain in flux. Even Collins says the next 6 '/₂ weeks will resolve whether he is back in the Mets dugout next year.

Said Collins to Sherman: “If we finish good, I don’t think I have much to worry about. If we don’t, who knows?”
