We know Aaron Heilman wants to start. Jorge Sosa made it clear that’s what is on his mind. The Mets signed Sosa because of his versatility in working out of the bullpen or starting.
Sosa just said the Mets haven’t told him their preference, but left no doubt his.
“I like starting more than being a reliever,’’ Sosa just said. “I came here to be a starter.’’
The Mets made it clear Heilman won’t get a chance to start, but that doesn’t prevent him from asking. Sosa, along with Jason Vargas, Alay Soler, Aaron Sele and Chan Ho Park, not to mention rookies Mike Pelfrey and Phil Humber, will compete for the fifth spot.
Where do you prefer Sosa?
