Get used to people having no idea how to analyze baseball managers (not that I'm claiming to be an expert or criticizing anyone in this thread). People tend to judge managers based on their on-field decisions and don't consider all the other parts of a manager's job. Does Bell construct the best lineups, pick the best times to bunt, know the best ways to handle a bullpen, etc.? Maybe, maybe not. But if those are the only negative things his critics can say about him, he can still be a great MLB managing prospect.
