08:51 AM ET 03.30 | Johan Santana is leaning heavily toward undergoing surgery on the probable re-tear of the anterior capsule in his left shoulder and trying to resume his pitching career, a person who yesterday spoke to the Mets pitcher told The Post. "He's not ready to end his career," the person said. "This is not the way he wants it to end." But the final decision on surgery likely won't come until today or tomorrow -- Santana's family was flying from Fort Myers to New York and the pitcher wanted to discuss the situation with his wife, the source said.

His body seems to constantly disagree with him on that.

He makes more than the entire Astros team. Two missed years and a dud in his past three seasons. Scary.

If he called it a career today, it would impact the money he makes for the rest of the season.

If I was him, I'd spend the whole season on the DL too...

And after the last check clears, call a press conference.

He still has a career??? I've thrown more pitches in the last two years than him...

wiseup: Santana has not been the same pitcher since the mets manager let him throw 135 pitches in his no hitter. Mets have no one to blame for Santana's recent problems.
