    Have to say I never seen a manager so celebrated and quoted, given his sub .500 record this season.

    Listening to New York Sports talk radio you would think the Yankees and Mets were reversed in the standings.

    Captain Terry leads the 1st place, 13 games over .500 Metropolitans over the hapless, lucky-to-be-close to the wildcard Bronx Bombers.

    Exactly- "Terry said this, Terry said that."

    Terry is now 41 -42 in 4th place of NL East.

    Baseball has no clock. Perfect for Herm.

    Herm would be a good influence on the younger players.

    When he came to Detroit this week the papers were all full of how Collins was an apprentice/devotee of Jim Leyland and hoped to emulate him in every way. (This was couched in terms of admiring approval, since according to much of Leyland's fan club in the press box, he's only marking time before his inevitable induction in Cooperstown.)

    Well, whattaya know -- from BaseballReference.com, Leyland's career record as of today:

    20 years 3097 1537 1558 .497

    This Mets team doesn't belong anywhere around .500. Along with all the injuries. He hasn't done a bad job.

    "Not a bad job" is about right, but he is not ready for Cooperstown yet.
