The hot stove season is young, but some big names are already heating it up.

Heath Bell recently spoke with ESPN baseball analyst Jim Bowden and unveiled a few interesting tidbits that have likely caught the eyes and ears of Red Sox Nation. The Oceanside, Calif., native explained that he would like to stay on the West Coast with the Padres, Angels or Dodgers, but would be open to playing for the Red Sox or Phillies, as seen in the tweet below.

Last season, Bell had a 2.44 ERA and 43 saves. The 34-year-old made $7.5 million last season.
