Heilman The Back Up

Anthony Di Como at writes about Aaron Heilman and his duty in the bullpen:

Should Wagner need that extra rest in the coming weeks, setup man Aaron Heilman has proven he's a capable replacement.

Heilman closed out Saturday's win in neat order for his first save since 2005. That year -- one in which he also made seven starts -- Heilman saved five games, four of which came in September after the Mets were eliminated from playoff contention.

"That's always good," Heilman said of the experience. "It's not such a brand new situation."
