Stop the talk because Collins is the right leader for the Mets

So here we go again as a prominent manager, Joe Maddon, decides to opt out of his contract with the Tampa Bay Rays. The talk all day Friday on New York airwaves is a call for the Wilpon owned New York Mets to make a change and bring Maddon to Citi Field. There is one […]
