Terry Collins will remain the manager of the New York Mets in 2013, according to a report by the New York Post on Monday morning.

Citing a source, the report states that Collins is not viewed as the reason why the Mets collapsed in the second-half of the season and that there is no chance that the club fires the 63-year-old manager prior to the end of the season or the beginning of next season.

In fact, he could end up with an extension depending upon how the team ends the season. The Mets front office wants to finish in third place in the NL East, in front of the Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins, to create a positive perspective of the team for 2013.

Via the New York Post:

"It doesn't seem like a big thing, but there should be some pride there," the source said.
