This was an excellent idea, given that Bell had more blown saves at the time (four) than saves (three).
He’s also got a 10.24 ERA, a 2.69 WHIP, and has only one less walk than his teammate Anibal Sanchez despite throwing almost 31 fewer innings.
Thus, this news might come as somewhat of a surprise:
Ozzie said he’s ready to give Heath bell closer’s job #Marlins

But then, that might be just Ozzie being Ozzie.
