Heath Bell hates ESPN

Postby IVIisfits138 » Tue Apr 14, 2009 9:46 pm

“I saw John Kruk on “Baseball Tonight” and he said, ‘They’re playing really well, but I don’t believe in them,’” Bell said before Monday’s game. “And I saw ESPN’s promo for tonight’s game. They mention the Mets are opening Citi Field, they mentioned the starting time, but nowhere did they mention the Padres. That gave me the (expletive).”

Bell was just getting warmed up in his pregame commentary.

“I truly believe ESPN only cares about promoting the Red Sox and Yankees and Mets - and nobody else,” said the closer, a former Met. “That’s why I like the MLB Network, because they promote everybody. I’m really turned off by ESPN and ‘Baseball Tonight.’ When Jake Peavy threw 8 1/3 innings on Saturday, they showed one pitch in the third inning and that was it. It’s all about the Red Sox, Yankees and Mets.”


I have to agree with him even as a Mets fan. If I have to see one more Mavs/Spurs game I am going to shoot someone.

I'll agree with him but he's not saying anything that hasn't been said before.

You're right, but I can't recall an active player really coming out like that before.

Curse word that begins with S that can mean diarrhea is all that I could come up with. However, I have never gotten so mad that I've had this occur.
