    I think this trade kills the Peavy deal. The Pads wanted Garrett Olson. Heilman will most likely be the Cubs long reliever and do some spot starts for tired or injured pitchers.

    Wasn't that supposed to be Gaudin's job?

    We'll see after spring training. Marshall, Gaudin and Heilman will compete for the #5 spot and whoever doesn't get it will be in the bull pen doing LR and spot starting. It'll be good to have a couple of guys who can give you 3 to 5 innings if needed.

    Another thing to watch is to see what the Cubs do with Rich Hill. He's out of options so he'll have to clear waivers to pitch in the minors. Unless he starts the year on the DL.

    Re: Cubs acquire Aaron Heilman from M's

    I am trying to figure out what the cubs are trying to do this off season. Heilman? Really? The NL Central is there for the taking again. I don't understand why they can't just get Peavy and have a dominant rotation. Oh well, pitchers and catchers report soon!

    The Cubs all ready have a dominant rotation, getting Peavy wouldn't have changed that. Nobody else in the division did anything, so the Cubs pitching should be fine. The Brewers got worse, and the Cards are going to hope Carpenters arm doesn't fall off.

    Didn't Heileman pitch for the Mets last season. I could swear that he was part of the Mets bullpen, and not a good part at that. Maybe they just got him for the endorsement deal.

    Heilman was part of the Mets last year. He was part of the multi-team 12 player trade that sent JJ Putz to the Mets, that's how he ended up in Seattle.

    I could go for an Old Style right now.

    Re: Cubs acquire Aaron Heilman from M's

    The Cubs have as deep of an overall pitching staff as anyone, and Heilman sucks...Ronny Cedeno was a great guy to have coming off the bench, and could play multiple positions with a good glove if someone needed a day off...the Cubs just basically gave away Felix Pie and Ronny Cedeno to land a middle aged long reliever, who lacks good stuff and good command...

    I'm upset with this move.

    I can't believe they're still holding out on this one...didn't anyone learn from the Cubs/Prior debacle?

    Re: Cubs acquire Aaron Heilman from M's

    Ronny Cedeno had to be moved. There isn't much of a place for him on the roster and he had no options left so they couldn't send him down to AAA to free up a roster spot.

    I do agree though that the net outcome of these trades has been one questionable pitcher, and that in and of itself is questionable.

    Re: Cubs acquire Aaron Heilman from M's

    Pie was also down to his last year of AAA, if they brought him up, and sent him down one more time, their only option was to leave him there or bring him up For GOOD!

    and he hasn't proven that he can hit, so they had to deal him, I don't blame them for doing this, but...I to will laugh if he has an outstanding year this year

    Apparently I'm the only one who really likes this move for the Cubs.
