Pitching coach Dan Warthen is the longest-tenured member of the staff, having ascended from Triple-A when Willie Randolph as well as Rick Peterson were axed in the 3 a.m. ET firing back in 2008. Hitting coach Dave Hudgens is completing his second season. Bench coach Bob Geren, third base coach Tim Teufel, first base coach Tom Goodwin and bullpen coach Ricky Bones all were in their first year on the staff. "I like this organization. I'd like to finish my career in this organization," Warthen said. "I'm very happy where we are as far as our young arms coming up. I think there's a great deal of future -- a good future. ... With the [Zack] Wheelers and some of the guys we're seeing right now, I think that we have a very bright future. And I'm glad to be a part of that. ... [Matt] Harvey pitched better here than he did in the minor leagues. So I think there's some very positive, wonderful things happening there. I'm anxious to see a little more of Zack Wheeler. I've only seen go to the mound and compete one time in my life up close and live." Warthen said he was least confident he would remain pitching coach after the 2010 season, which was Jerry Manuel's final year as manager. "I thought we were miserable in 2010," Warthen said. "I just thought everything was as bad as you could imagine. I thought we were walking people. I didn't think we were executing pitches. And I was disappointed in the pitchers and I was disappointed in myself that I couldn't get more out of the pitchers. "Just the opposite, I think I've done one of my best jobs ever this year. I think I've gotten better because I've learned more. I think I know the league better. I know the guys more, and I know what I think they can do."

It's pretty clear now that SA seems to be a fan of his... Now everybody is OK w/ Warthen now?I'd still like to see him replaced. I think he's proven to be at least somewhat competent, but I still don't think he's a difference-maker like Dave Duncan, Mike Maddox, and Don Cooper have proven to be. With the proven impact pitching coaches can have, I'd strive for a difference-maker in that role, not just a guy who might not be a liability.
