Friar #NoFilter: Josh Bell
by Padres Haiku
So full confession, I had a post written for Esteury Ruiz where I got to link out this page. But since then a small trade went through that sent him to the Washington Nationals. Don’t kick yourself if you missed it but the Padres acquired a little known outfielder called John Sogo. Also coming over in the deal is Josh Bell. I’ve actually wanted Bell for the Padres since he was on the Pirates, but didn’t think it was going to happen after he got traded to Washington in 2020. Since he was the second biggest name traded to the Padres this deadline (Cam Gallagher being the first obvs), let’s take a look at his IG.
Is that a young Josh on the left or current Josh being creepy on the right? We’ll never know.
“I am Vengeance.” -Josh Bell, probably, 15 times a day.
Hey, Art But Make It Sports, my DMs are open.
Josh’s mom. Perfect no notes.
Josh Bell’s dad is most certainly an early 90’s police investigator about to crack the biggest case of his life, if only the lieutenant would get out of the way!
