Mets Organization finally gets one right!
by: TLC on Mar 19, 2009 9:41 PM | Filed under: Journals

Peoria, Ariz–  With a little over two weeks left in Spring Training, Cubs Manager and former New York Yankees Outfielder, Lou Piniella, announced that Sean Marshall has claimed the team’s fifth starter position.  In a shocking twist, Aaron Heilman is being sent back to where many, including Lou, believe he deserves to be, the pen.  No word yet on which role the Cubs plan to use him in; however, this contributor will only say that Aaron Heilman is sure to be staring at many butts as other pitchers are called on to shoulder the load left by Bob Howry, now pitching for the Giants. I’m sure Aaron has this one playing in his ipod at this very moment. This contributor wishes Aaron the best in all of his future endeavors.

    Did Heilman suck in his audition, or was Marshall simply the plan all along? Or was Marshall unhittable or something?

    I still say the jury’s out on whether Aaron can start; I don’t think one spring training changes that.

    Aaron had like a 1.29 ERA this spring with a 4.0 K to BB ratio. He got screwed again. The guy is jinxed.

    i just saw this. lou wanted lefty marshall to start. pure & simple. aaron had a fine ST and is doing well so far. lots of flux in cubbieland; aaron may well start before the season is over!
