"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."
