Dumb Decision By Manuel Making Heilman "Closer"
Jerry Manuel said something to the effect that Aaron "deserved" the first chance to be the closer while Billy Wagner is on the DL. Well, obviously Manuel hasn't been paying too close attention to how awful Heilman's been this year, thus, any surprise that he almost blew it for us last night? Wagner with his 7 blown saves is having a bad enough season (how he made the All-Star team is beyond me), but any bullpen-by-committee while our closer is out should not include Aaron Heilman.
