Questions For Heath Bell

Sometime this week I’m going to be emailing Heath Bell (technically his assistant) a few questions that I have for him. I already sent an email once, asking if it was okay to send some questions for Heath to answer. The response was from Heath’s assistant, Mike, who assured me that if I sent along some questions, Heath Bell would answer them when he could.

I already have my set of questions ready to go. But before I send them along, I was wondering if anyone reading this had any questions for the Padre’s closer. Just leave a comment with your question(s) in the next couple of days, and I might send it along with mine for Heath to answer.

Check back next week for the answers. (I’m hoping next week, but it may take longer or shorter, depending on Heath’s schedule.)

I have never heard this question asked of a closer, and perhaps it is a stupid question, you decide:
Do closers think of themselves as having failed, because they can’t be starters? Yes, there are a hundred famous closers, and the term itself implies a foretaste of doom for the enemy, so there’s a “Fear the Reaper” cachet to the job. To be a good closer, they have to face the world with bravado and awesome stuff — but don’t they feel a bit like the freaks of a baseball team? Is that why so many of them act like freaks?

I don’t find that as a stupid question. I hadn’t even thought of asking that. I’ll send it along with mine. THANKS for contributing!
