During the GM search, e-mails from Fred and Jeff Wilpon and Saul Katz used to fill the in-box. Now, with Terry Collins set to be introduced Tuesday as the franchise's 20th manager, Sandy Alderson sends out this message, which partly reads:

We are pleased to announce we have hired Terry Collins as our new manager.

Terry's a lifelong baseball man who comes with the entire package -- leadership, preparation, emotional commitment, and the drive to win. We believe Terry's knowledge of our players, energy, intelligence, intensity, and direct approach will make an immediate, positive impact both in the clubhouse and on the field.

Terry spent six years as a major-league manager, leading the Anaheim Angels and Houston Astros to winning records and second-place finishes in his five full seasons. He managed the Angels from 1997-1999 and the Astros from 1994-1996, compiling an overall record of 444-434 (.506).

We will introduce Terry to the media this morning during a press conference at 11 a.m. at Citi Field.
