So far, so bad: Heath Bell signing one of worst through season’s first half

Ringing nobody up

Ringing nobody up

Yes, we do take some pleasure in this. I am not a Heath Bell fan. Don’t like his schtick, his demeanor, nothing really. It also didn’t help that, as a Mets fan, he trashed his time in Queens saying the Mets weren’t honest with him and he harbored a lot of hostility and blah, blah, blah. Plus, what kind of jackass does this:

So, where was I? Oh yes, the pleasure in “this.” “This” would be Bell’s hugely disappointing performance during the first half of the MLB season. Frankly, I hadn’t paid too much attention until I recently was checking out some Marlins blogs and forums where the ripping of Bell was both hilarious and relentless — and the numbers give credence to the criticism. Despite 19 saves, Bell has been an up-and-down train wreck through 81 games. His 2-5 record tells little of the story. The 6.75 ERA, 1.817 WHIP and 43 hits in 34.2 innings start to lay it out a bit more.

Bell blew his sixth game of the season this past Sunday on a walkoff hit at St. Louis. At least Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has his closer’s back:

“We didn’t lose because of the play at the plate. We lost because Heath Bell couldn’t do the job”

It’s only half a season of work, but let’s just say the 3-year $27M deal the Fish inked with Bell isn’t looking like the best of 2012 signings so far. Oh, and we’re all broken up over it.

    You the person that wrote this about Heath Bell, you have no idea what you are talking about. Heath may be having a bad season, and so what!

    He didnt bash the Mets, he bashed the Mets Management and rightly so. And not even all the management, just a couple and they know why!

    I laugh at you and your writings, because you know nothing!

    Heath is an awsume ball player, and what are you?

    Heath is making 27 million and what do you make?

    For someone that dosen’t like Heath Bell you sure have a lot to say, true or not….

    I know all this first hand because I am his sister…so when you wanna write something with any substance then please do so….

    I am a Mets fan too, but I am not in a position to say if the criticism of the mets was uncalled for, Unfortunately Heath is having a horrible season, and when you earn 27 million dollars in 3 years and you don’t fulfill your potential people are gonna be frustrated, it’s normal, at the same time everybody has a bad season and it was Heath turn.
