Ozzie Guillen doesn’t sound married to keeping Heath Bell as the closer

More Marlins stuff because, well, why not.

When asked about Heath Bell’s performance last night and his prospects of remaining the Marlins’ closer, Ozzie Guillen sounded pretty non-committal:

“My job is to win games. I’m going to put the best guy we think is doing the job there. This is a tough call to any position because we spend a lot of money on this kid (Bell). I’ve got to put my best guy out there, and right now he’s not our best guy.”

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
