D’Backs Acquire Heath Bell In Three-Team Deal

I dunno, Arizona, can you really trust a guy named “Adam Eaton”?

The Diamondbacks announced that they have acquired Heath Bell, infielder Cliff Pennington, and cash considerations from the Marlins in a three-team deal with the Athletics.  Miami will receive minor league infielder Yordy Cabrera from the A’s and Oakland will get outfielder Chris Young and cash from Arizona.

What is the longest that the Marlins have kept a player they signed as a free agent? Five minutes? I assume Reyes is next.

Seriously. This is one pathetic organization. The fact that they have not one but 2 titles chaps my ass.

Bell & Pennington for ARod & Granderson

Jeter moves to 3B and A-Rod to SS?
