If Showtime had stuck around the Marlins the entire season, there would be some September drama that would be hard to question.

In a recent interview with FOX Sports Florida, Miami reliever Heath Bell had claimed the Showtime series "The Franchise," which followed the Marlins throughout the season until the last episode aired Aug. 22, had "tried to build some drama between me and (Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen) and there wasn't any."

Bell, a much-ballyhooed free-agent signee who got off to a disastrous start and lost his closer's job after the All-Star break, blasted his manager Monday on a Miami radio station.
