The 2009 season marked Bell’s first as a manager at the professional level. He has a record of 176-239.
“We think David’s ready to move,” Bavasi said. “He’s been in Double-A for a few years. He’s done a real good job there.”
What in the world is going on? I'm sorry, but that is just a lie. Maybe some players have said that he was a good manager, but his record is awful. This whole thing is very mysterious, if Sweet was having heath issues, I would not think that a roving position would be much better! Also, disappointed that Corky did not replace him - maybe he is not ready to move on to managing, but he seems like a more logical choice then a guy who has been awful at a lower level.
