"Randolph generally prefers not to be pinned down, so he didn't make the eighth inning Heilman's domain. The three relievers the Mets imported during the winter -- Dauner Sanchez, Jorge Julio and Chad Bradford -- will have equally undefined roles, but all will find work after the starter has been removed. But the three are not nearly as effective against left-handed hitters as they are against right-handed hitters. It's not a small consideration. Heilman referred generally to needs of the bullpen as a "certain other circumstance."
Though right-handed, he was quite effective against left-handed hitters last season because of his changeup. No less a left-handed hitter than Carlos Delgado raved about him last year."
Yea I saw that too.
MORE INFO: Seconds ago, when asked about the specific roles of NY METS RP, the Mets' BP coach said on the FSNY telecast of Mets vs. Braves that, while Willie likes to be flexible, Wagner will definately be closing, and Heilman will defintely be getting valuable outs in the 8th inning.
Its a go in my eyes, I just dropped Majewski for him.
