Piece from Fox Sports re: how Terry Collins has changed as a manager since his days with the Astros and Angels.
Also: Through the first two months — and it’s just two months, but — the Mets have some award candidates. Collins must be front-runner for Manager of the Year, David Wright’s got a shot at MVP, Johan Santana at Comeback Player of the Year, Santana and R.A. Dickey are on the edges of the Cy Young race, Kirk Nieuwenhuis leads NL rookie position players in Fangraphs WAR. Still four months to go, of course. But the first two of this Mets season have been pretty awesome, actually.
