    Could Bell be fired this season?

    They've had injuries, and the team is young. At what point could something like that happen?

    Unless he gets drunk and tries to grope a waitress at the Precinct before yelling racist slurs at the police itís not going to happen.

    I admit that the thought crossed my mind that Bell might be replaced by someone veteran who's taken teams to the playoffs before.

    He could be fired because injuries and youth affect his team and that threatens his job security eh?

    Dystopian baseball take right there

    Do you think Bell could eat 50 hard boiled eggs in an hour?

    David Bell is too flashy.

    They should send him down to Louisville.

    They should fire Bell and send Elly to the minors. Need a manager to publicly call out these guys. They looked like they weren't even trying last night.

    If you had worked in a lollygaggers joke and maybe a recliner in the clubhouse reference I would have given this a 10.

    As it was, a solid 8. Nicely done.

    Isn't he due for another 2-year extension?
