    Isn't that a bit early in the season? I think we have to let him ride it out. That team will eventually hit.

    I actually like David bell. I don’t want to see him get fired yet. The only beef I have is he will not let guys pitch a complete game. We had a few times this yr when guys were pitching well and he pulled them, only to watch our bullpen implode

    Bryan Price used to get criticized for leaving guys in there too long. I know there were a couple of occasions where a starter seemed like he was going to go all the way but the starter spit the bit and they had to go to the bullpen. Lucas Sims's first start was a prime example. The Reds had a good sized lead in the 8th, IIRC and he ran out of gas. Do you let a guy go if he's getting knocked around just to get him a complete game? He might get the loss but by God he'll have a complete game.

    He will serve out his contract. He's family. Grandad was a star in the 50's. Dad played well in Cincy. He's in for a long time.

    I wasn't happy with the hire, but the team did improve. I'm not in favor of rookie managers, and his moves mirror another rookie manager named Price. So sit back and relax. He's here for awhile.

    If you don't win, you're going to be fired. If you do win, you've only put off the day you're going to be fired." The job of every manager is to be fired. It’s in the job description.

    The Mets and the Pirates are interested in Bell as their manager. Mike, that is, the former Red and brother of David. He's in charge of player development for the D'Backs and has had some brief stints managing in the minors.

    Would be interesting if Pittsburgh hired him and you had two Bells managing in the NL Central.

    Guarantee the first headline when the Pirates and Reds play would be "For Whom the Bell Tolls"
    The world is a messy place. People are inconsistent and complicated. Maybe we should see how different things could be if we gave grace and forgiveness to our fellow human beings when they fail to be perfect in our eyes. -- me

    That, and they could have a Hostess Ding Dong Day promotion.
