The New York Mets are hovering near the cellar of the National League East, but manager Terry Collins can feel safe about keeping his job, the New York Post reports.

The paper quotes a source saying there is "no chance" that Collins will be fired.  Collins is under contract through 2013.

The source said team brass has a goal for the Mets over these final 34 games: Finish third in the NL East, ahead of the Phillies and Marlins, to help create a more positive perception of the franchise heading to the winter.
