Heilman and El Duque

Mark Hale at The New York Post writes about Aaron Heilman and Orlando Hernandez:

Aaron Heilman:

Aaron Heilman's stance remains the same: He wants to be a starting pitcher, either for the Mets or another team in 2007, according to a person familiar with the right-handed reliever's thinking.

Heilman has reiterated his desire to start to management already, the person said.

El Duque:

According to Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez's agent, Greg Genske, the veteran righty has spoken to the Mets about coming back.

"El Duque's preference is to remain with the Mets. He loves New York and has had a terrific experience with the Mets organization," Genske said in an e-mail yesterday. "While we are in discussions about a potential return to the Mets, several other clubs have called to express interest in El Duque."
