The Mets expect manager Terry Collins to retire at the end of the season, sources tell Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News.

However, the 68-year-old's contract expires at the end of the year and judging by the disastrous 2017 season the team is finishing up, it should nearly be expected that Collins won't return to the team.

The New York Mets are closing up what has been a disastrous and injury-plagued season for the franchise.

"It's highly unlikely that we're not going to bring him back next year", general manager Sandy Alderson told Mike Puma of the New York Post.

If Alderson goes, that would be a for sure sign Collins is out as well. If he is looking to coach somewhere next season, NY included, public retirement talk doesn't make much sense.

For a team that started the year with World Series aspirations, the Mets are trying to stay out of last place in the National League East with a 65-87 record. A new GM that takes over would want control of who's leading the team, and would likely make it a requisite of taking the job regardless of how much the Wilpons may love Collins.

The Mets have had a terrible season but Collins can't be blamed for it. Injuries, poor defense, subpar play, and an overworked bullpen are the reasons for the disappointing season.
