NY Daily News: Terry Collins’ future with NY Mets has become tough to read

Also, Matt Harvey will throw a few more bullpen sessions and then be shut down, and some Grim LeRogue wannabe can’t talk to Justin Turner.

Unsure about the Mets leadership situation? Join the club. As someone whose job is to report on these things, I’d like to relay that the signs emanating from the organization are foggier than in recent years, and that in itself is interesting.

It’s not just reporters who are unsure. There seems to be genuine internal debate and uncertainty over what the team will do; as one well-connected Mets official put it, “I just can’t get a feel for what’s going to happen this time.”

Added another Mets person, on Collins’ chances to return: “I think we have a ways to go before that’s decided.”...

The manager has his backers in the organization, and he has his detractors; both sides seem still to be discussing the future. I still believe that there is a slight lean toward the status quo, but also that the atypical lack of clarity is telling. In other words: It should be an interesting month.

“You wonder if this comes down to a five-game losing streak, or five-game winning streak,” said one major league official in touch with Mets people.

Chris Young is Twice as Likely to be Benched After a Good Game Than an Oh-Fer: Why Terry Collins is the Worst

Then, I looked to see what happened after each of those games, at whether Young started or was benched for the next team game.  The results are… perplexing. For the last month, from May 29th to the present, Young has had 8 “good games” and 7 “bad games” where the Mets had a game the next day.

After the “bad games”, he was started 57% of the time and benched 42% of the time.

However after the “good games”, he was started 25% of the time and benched 75% of the time.
