“The culture has changed,” Teufel said. “We have a new culture in this organization and I give a lot of credit to Terry for bringing that forward. The Mets really stepped up, went and looked for a leader and found one in Terry. They brought him in as field coordinator last year and the environment changed.”
Tim Teufel was picked by the Mets to manage Triple-A Buffalo after losing out on the major league job to Terry Collins. In Buffalo, Teufel found out that Collins is extremely popular, even having a sandwich named after him in a restaurant at Coca Cola Park, the home field of the Bisons.
“Terry has his own sandwich? That’s a pretty good goal for me to have,” Teufel joked to the fans in the packed grand ballroom of the Adam’s Mark as Collins sat nearby laughing at the head table. “Maybe I can just start with an appetizer.”
