Mets owner Fred Wilpon met for 20 minutes with manager Terry Collins after his team was routed Monday by Miami.
“He just wanted to talk about the club, which he loves to do,’’ Collins told reporters in Port St. Lucie. “He loves to talk baseball. But he’s not mad at all.’’
Wilpon also told Collins he would be more visible this spring.
