NEW YORK -- Terry Collins said he would wait until after the season to address his widely reported two-year contract extension, which is expected to be announced as soon as Monday.

"We have said all along we'll address it when the season is over, so we'll address it when that happens," Collins said after Saturday's loss.

The manager then added about potentially returning: "I've been in baseball for 42 years. This is what I do. This is what I enjoy. This is the fun part of the game -- to compete every night. When you're my age, you walk in there and you look around and hang around with them, it keeps you young. So it would be a blast. But, again, we'll wait until the end of the year to smile about it."
