    Heilman could very well not even be on our roster next year...

    Look for Heilman to be part of a package that brings us Dontrel Willis

    You assume Duaner will be back to normal? Why?

    Heilman will never start for the Mets so it's a moot point.

    Agreed, Heilman doesn't have enough quality pitches to start and face hitters 3-4 times a game. He's proven it in the past by being terribly inconsistant as a starter and because hes had a couple good years in a role where he doesnt have to face hitters multiple times you want to change that?

    If he holds to his demands to start or trade, he will likely be traded and then the poor team that takes him on will realize hes not starter material. Hopefully he'll be given the chance to close instead for that team.

    After Heilman came back from his struggles he has gotten only a few starts and has been very good when given the chance.........he 4 hit the marlins in a complete game in one of those rare chances.



    do u even watch the mets?

    If Heilman starts it will be on another team, if he was passed up as a starter for Jose Lima, that tells you everything about what his odds are as a starter as a Met.

    Not to mention we have no idea if Duaner will be 100% and if Bradford, Hernandez or Oliver will be back next year.

    Heilman's starts in 2005.

    @ ATL - L, 5 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 2 HR, 3 K
    FLA - W, 9 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 7 K
    @ FLA - L, 4 IP, 11 H, 7 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB, 3 K
    ATL - W, 7 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
    @ WAS - 6 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 5 K
    @ CHC - 5.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
    STL - L, 6.2 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 2 HR, 1 BB, 7 K

    Total - 2-3, 4.71 ERA, 42 IP, 38 H, 22 ER, 5 HR, 13 BB, 34 K

    Yup. 'Very Good' when Given the Chance.

    More like Horribly Inconsistant (2 Great, 2 Decent, 1 Bad, 2 Terrible), like I already said.
