I agree completely, and that Heilman should be the 4th starter regardless. He filled every roll he was asked well last year and while he may be most valuable for another year in long relief, I think he's quite capable of being a solid #4 starter. It's Zambrano that has me irked, and I really wish the Mets hadn't parted with BOTH Benson and Seo; having Heilman in the rotation is fine by me, but Zambrano is simply useless. Let's see if Peterson can work his magic.
