Mets should send Heilman to AAA and have him groomed to be a starter. It will help him emotionally and may give Mets a starter option down the road (or at least make him more attractive in trade. Give set-up role to a Smith/Feliciano tandem
Randolph didn't have a healthy bullpen, so he rolled the dice: snake eyes!

Aren't there any good middle relievers on themarket?

What is Willie holding back? Take one game at a time and win it...Put the best pitcher you have out there...Anyone can be paid money to pitch like crap...

Now I have had it. Heilman was a guy that so many teams wanted a s a starter. Did we move him. Of course not. Now we would be lucky to get a bag of pink Mother's Day Bats for him. Willie, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? This guy is horrible with men on. And you keep him in to allow an inherited runner to score and 3 more?

Inept managing. Enough already NYM. Randolph and the staff need to go and we need a guy that fires up this team. If we don't have a natural leader in the clubhouse, then we need one as manager and Willie isn't it. Send him back to the Bronx.

I said this right after Randope managed the Mets out of the 2006 playoffs against the Cards, he should be fired. He is no better than Art Howe except he has more talent to work with. Lou Piniella would have won the series in 2006 if he were the mgr., guaranteed.

Randope should have been fired at the end of last season. but no, of course not.

Could somebody please let Mr. Minaya know the following:

Aaron Heilman Stats:
IP 21
Hits 23 (for setup pitcher!)
BB 12 (for setup pitcher!)
ER 14 (for setup pitcher!)
HR 4 (for setup pitcher!)
ERA 5.82 (for setup pitcher!!!)
W 0
L 0
SV 0
Plus tons of inherit runners he has allowed to score.

Omar, you can get a good deal for him at K-Mart Blue Light Special.

Hey, Little Billy Boy Big Mouth Wagner isn’t time you chew-out Heilman?

The problem with that is that only GM that would be dumb enough to trade for Heilan is Minaya,
Yea, your right. I actually wrote the same thing on a different blog. Omar is definitely a minor league GM. What about Willie? Alou gets tossed the other day and Willie justs stands there and looks out into space. Good job Willie. No sense giving the Ump a piece of your mind, you dont want to give the Ump second thoughts before he thinks about tossing another one of your players in the future. If we dont dump some of the dead weight and get some health hard working players we will end the season no more than 5 or 6 games over 500. OUT of the PO's

Still can't but together a winning streak as ususal. Mediocore .500 team at best. No heart, no fire, no ability to battle back and try to win it. Bullpen is terrible, Willie and the Jacket make some really bad decisions, leaving simth and feliciano, wise in the pen, while A. Heilman blows another one. What the hell happened to Reyes? He clearly is not the player we had a season and a half ago.
