On a night when Johan Santana was terrific, there are concerns about Aaron Heilman. Manager Willie Randolph said his faith in Heilman was not diminished by Greg Dobbs’ three-run, pinch-hit homer last night in the eighth.
“Heâ€™s still one of our best pitchers,â€™â€™ Randolph said. “I will never lose confidence in Aaron Heilman _ ever.â€™â€™
What Heilman needs to do, is figure out how to pitch better here. In 9 2/3 innings he’s given up ten earned runs.
