Default Marlins Sign Heath Bell to 3 year, $27 Million Deal

Quote:
By Jayson Stark
ESPN.com

The Miami Marlins and free-agent closer Heath Bell have agreed on a three-year contract, pending a physical, sources told ESPN.com.

The two sides have been talking about a deal that would pay Bell $9 million a year. The deal also includes a vesting option for a fourth year.

Bell is expected to take his physical Friday in Florida, the sources said.

We don't want to pay $6 million to the 27-year old Juanky but we'll pay $9 million for the 34-year old Bell?

Age is only a number



I'm mixed on this because I'm excited we've made a signing, but it is a lot of dough. Luckily, it grows on trees now.

I just can't fucking believe they weren't willing to pay 3 million less for a closer who is nowhere near is good.

Fucking pricks. I'm pissed they're spending 3 million more of their money to make the team better.

FUCK YOU LORIA

I'm only including the first year of his deal cause we're just gonna trade him after the season like all our free agent signings.

BECAUSE LORIA IS THE WORST

I wasn't comparing what they did last year. But Bell is 34. He's more likely to start to decline in production since he's getting on the back side of his career.

I like the deal because the team is better and it's not my money.
