Ozzie Guillen fires back at Heath Bell while Miami Marlins listen

A day after reliever Heath Bell sounded off on Ozzie Guillen, Marlins players listened to their manager fire back via radio in their clubhouse while the media looked on.

Miami Herald beat writer Clark Spencer tweeted the awkward scene:

Guillen’s comments come on the heels of Heath telling a Miami-area radio audience that he didn’t respect his manager.

“It’s hard to respect a guy that doesn’t tell the truth,” Heath said.

Bell has lost the Marlins’ closer role twice this season, was upset by Guillen’s handling and what he considers a lack of opportunity to regain the role after pitching well in middle relief.

On Tuesday, Bell attempted to backtrack on his comments, saying they were taken out of context.
