Mets - Called up Bell
New York Mets - Placed P Felix Heredia on the 15-day DL; recalled P Heath Bell.
It really is too bad that it took a scary circulatory problem and an additional sore thumb to get The Run Fairy off the team instead of the fact that he’s kind of a crappy pitcher. After turning the corner in 2004, having an ERA that matched his fastball, K rate, and his DIPS ERA, Bell was called up, pitched very well in his extra-large cup of coffee (3.33 ERA, 27 K in 24.1 innings) and was gracelessly sent to the minors to start the year so that Heredia could attempt to single-handedly prevent a new steroid testing regiment in baseball from causing offense to drop.
Even without Mr. Fairy, Mike Matthews and Manny Aybar getting more of a shot to start the season than Bell was a crime. Almost bad enough for Bell to deserve some mopey indie pop song in his honor.
