Bannister out, Heilman in ??

From today's Daily News:
SAN FRANCISCO - Brian Bannister (strained right hamstring) hopes he can pitch Tuesday, but the Mets will start taking a close look at Triple-A Norfolk's rotation to fill any potential void. GM Omar Minaya named Darren Oliver - who picked up yesterday's win in relief - as a strong possibility, but Willie Randolph suggested it's more likely a Tides starter would be summoned.

If Bannister can't go, the Mets would have four options: John Maine (1-3, 2.62 ERA), Jeremi Gonzalez (1-2, 3.52), Jose Lima (2-2, 6.00) and Yusaku Iriki (1-1, 2.70). Maine, obtained with Jorge Julio for Kris Benson, is the only one of those pitchers on the 40-man roster, meaning no one would have to be exposed to waivers to promote him.

Randolph ruled out Aaron Heilman, saying: "I like the way our bullpen looks right now."

Oh well...the Heilman thing doesn't sound like an option.

It better not be Jose Lima...might as well start (the bad) Zambrano on back to back days. :-t

Bannister was just placed on the DL. Victor Diaz was called up. Iriki was suspended for testing positive for steroids.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

On WFAN Randolph said Oliver will not start TUE (in place of Bannister) it will be Maine, Gonzalez or Lima. Please, no Lima time. :-o
