A Flurry of Stinks List Activity

Been a lot of movement on the Stinks List today. So far, Russo has added the following to the list:

San Diego Padres
Joe Blanton (2nd time in a week)
Scott Schoeneweis
Billy Wagner

But here's my question. If you are adding Scott Schoeneweis to the Stinks List today, how can you not add Aaron Heilman? Now Russo did come very close with Heilman, saying about 6-7 times that Heilman has "killed the Mets" this year. But for some odd reason, Russo didn't add Heilman to the list. Heilman has an ERA over 5.00, and a WHIP of 1.5. Schoeneweis has an ERA of 3.14 and a WHIP of 1.30. So how does he make the list and not Heilman? Is it because Mikey likes Aaron and Doggie doesn't want to irk the big man in case he's listening? That is a TERRIBLE job by Russo. I'm starting to wonder if I can trust Dog in a big spot when it comes to the Stinks List.

Dog only remembers things from the night before. If he hosted the show the day after Heilmy gave up the grand slam the other day, he would have been added to the list.

Not sure if you caught this today FTLT. Dog also put Tavaris Jackson on the stinks list, from the Minnesota Vikings. So did he set the single day record for stinks declarations today?

Technically Dog did add Heilman to the stinks list because he added the whole Mets bullpen.

Bill...last week Dog called Marte the best lefty specialist in baseball, so I don't think he will backtrack that quickly by adding Marte to the list
