Yeah, I'd say that wasn't a great outing the other day....

....but he shouldn't be anywhere near anyone's roster regardless - as the 3rd option out of the Arizona pen.

He's closing now.  His stats are good this year if you subtract his first game drubbing.  Can't believe I'm putting a waiver claim on this dude...I'm almost hoping someone else gets him.
A prince should therefore have no other aim or thought... but war and its organization and discipline.

I'm desperate for saves, I might roster him until he has his first meltdown. I'll be wearing radioactive protective gloves when I pick him up though.

You better wash the sheets in your bed after he leaves. In fact, burn them.

I'm hoping for Chris Perez-like work.  ERA mid 4s and lots of saves on a good team.  Good K to Walk so far though.

As a last season Heath Bell owner, I want no part of his attempts to save games in ARI.

I know he sucked it up last year, but could it be that he is effective in the national west?  He is going to get tons of chances.

Kevin Gregg is doing o.k.   Prior to last year Rodney was just another arm.  It's a league his used to.  He knows the players, the parks, the mounds, etc...  He could catch a little lightning in a bottle for a good team.

or...he could melt down and we all pretend we never had him on our rosters.

RPs can be very fickle year to year. He could certainly save 25 games from here.

I just traded to have the top waiver claim this week to get this guy.  The Heath Bell Experience/Experiment/Excrement..  I'm hoping he runs with it.  Yes, last year was abysmal, but this guy has been great in the past.  And, as like others stated above, if Rodney and Gregg can come out of nowhere, on the wrong side of 30, this guy could definitely re-harness what he had as recently as 2011.
What is both surprising and delightful is that spectators are allowed, and even expected, to join in the vocal part of the game.... There is no reason why the field should not try to put the batsman off his stroke at the critical moment by neatly timed disparagements of his wife's fidelity and his mother's respectability. ~George Bernard Shaw

Has Bell officially locked down the closer role?
