Great step for David. Interested in seeing who the Reds will name as Louisville's manager.

I had put the story up in the Minor League forum since I figured he was the AAA manager and hence, will be a topic of discussion viz a viz our minor leagues.

As woy said in another thread (in so many words), he's being sent to baseball purgatory in order to learn how to suffer.

The Reds could still hire him as the manager if they wanted to. Teams hire coaches from other organizations all the time.

Understood. But given the Cubs lack of success at the major league level recently, I have a feeling Bell could get a "call up" before Dusty's current contract plays out. Oh well, I suppose that ship has sailed anyway.

I doubt Dave Sveum is on the hot seat just yet with Chicago, but it may get him a better look for another team in 2014.

Scott Rolen!

That would be great. I'd love to see Rolen mentoring the young guys.

It's just a matter of time before Corky is a manager somewhere.

Glad to see Bell move on. Did not want to see him as future manager

I would imagine Delino would go to AA before AAA. Just a guess.

The coaching carousel is about to begin. The mix of who works cheapest versus getting results. I'll be very interested in seeing what the Reds do on all levels this year.

I'm still wondering what happened to Rick Sweet. The guy did a great job with Louisville and then they moved him into some roving catching instructor or some such thing. Sweet's final 6 seasons with the Bats...all winning records. I, for one, was quite disappointed with the change to Bell.

They obviously had some plan for him. The opportunity arose with the Cubs and Bell took it.
