The New York Mets are now in need of a new manager. Terry Collins, their former manager, has resigned following the Mets season-finale.

The 68-Year-old manager’s team did not have the 2017 season they had hoped for, as they were hampered by injuries and declining play from its former star players.

He has been the Mets manager since the 2011 season. He’s expected to be retained by the organization; however, in a yet-to-be-determined front office role.

The Mets will be the third team, who will have new managers in 2018. The Detroit Tigers and Philadelphia Phillies are also making managerial changes.

In the past seven seasons with the team, his longest-tenure as an MLB manager, he’s guided the team to a 551-583 record. The team went 70-92 this season.

In his final game as their manager, the Mets laid an egg, as it appeared they did not want to play for him anymore. The Phillies defeated the Mets 11-0 at Citizens Bank Park.

He only had two winning seasons, as the Mets manager. The team won 90 games during the 2015 season.

They advanced all the way to the World Series. However, they were ultimately defeated by the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals won the series 4-1. Salvador Pérez was also named the MVP as the Royals won their first World Series Championship in 30-years.

The Mets also went 87-75 last season. The team lost in the Wild Card play-in game.

The Mets, at the beginning of the season, though they would be a force once again. However, the team suffered injuries to their starting rotation — and Matt Harvey even went AWOL before returning to the team the next day.

The team had 28 disabled list stunts this season. Noah Syndergaard, Yoenis Céspedes, Jeurys Familia, Michael Conforto, and Stephen Matz were their notable players on the disabled list this season.
