Mets pitching Dan Warthen has changed his mind and will not retire after this season, he told Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert this past weekend.

"I thought this would be my last year," he told Ackert. "I really thought I wanted to retire. I'd have my pitchers all back and they'd be ready to go. But, after this year, I want one more year. I don't want to leave them like this."

I just hope this doesn't open the door just enough for them to consider putting the band back together for one last hurrah (Collins).

And btw, I don't know his contract status, but are we sure that the FO actually wants Dirty Dan back especially if they do relent and replace Terry..? They may want to make a clean break and either let the new mgr pick his own PC or just give Viola a shot.

I'm sure he discussed it with the front office before announcing it.

I don't mind Warthen. I figured a few weeks ago he'd be gone especially with the likelihood that Terry is gone but we will see...

I want a whole new staff next year so I hope he changes his mind again.

I didn't even realize he was planning on retiring. Darnit, an opportunity lost.
