Back to Mets stuff. It seems that Omar is looking toward Tampa for pitching help and the Rays supposedly are dangling Edwin Jackson and Andy Sonnanstine for Aaron Heilman. Heilman seems to be in play with the Rockies, Cubs, Cubs and Snakes who fancy him as a starter. Now of course if the Mets kept with the plan they devised two seasons ago when they sent Heilman to Winter Ball to stretch out his arm to begin 2006 as a starter instead Heilman got beaten out for the #5 spot by Brian Bannister, only because the Mets felt Heilman would adjust to long releif better than Bannister. Then with players like Lima Time, Victor Zambrano and other pitching rejects getting a shot at the rotation over him is one of the reasons Heilman looked beaten the last two season. That’s not to excuse him from being ineffective in relief and not stepping up when he was needed but anyone is the poster boy for a change of scenery it’s Aaron Heilman and if the Mets could land Andy Sonnastine for Heilman that would be a great trade.
