2) Fiery Personality (A Little At Least)

Like previously mentioned, Collins first came out as a fiery manager who was too strict with his players back with the Astros and the Angels. During his last days with the Angels, his players stood together to revolt against him, leading to his exit from the organization.

Collins has changed that approach, as we saw here with the Mets. But, he still has some intensity left.

A good manager should still be tough when he has to and Collins has learned to balance his player friendliness with some of his intensity when he needs to. Collins is still not afraid to go after the umpires when he doesn’t agree on a call against his team and still gets ejected at times. Thus, it gives his players more respect towards him knowing he still has their back.
