4) Experience

2015 was Collins’s first year of making the playoffs and the World Series. His inexperience in the World Series compared with his counterpart Ned Yost, whose Royals were there last year, was a big factor in the results, particularly Collins’s late inning moves.

But after finally tasting the World Series, Collins and the Mets will have more experience under their belts and should the Mets reach the World Series again next season, Collins should be more equipped this time around.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
