Not that I disagree with the whole notion that this move is mysterious. But I'm not sure you can hold it against Bell over his record. Most of the W-L record is based on talent available to him. And when your better players are constantly in flux, its hard to win consistently.
Let's face it. AA ball is strange simply because a player who is good will be quickly moved up, and replaced by an A-ball player who is either too young for AA, or needs a few weeks to adjust. And once the player adjusts, he usually is promoted.
Nevertheless, I hope nothing is wrong with Rick Sweet.
