Cincinnati Reds news: What about David Bell’s contract?

WHAT ABOUT DAVID BELL? Ownership has not picked up his option to manage the club in ’22. I half-thought that would happen in August, as the Reds surged to the top of the WC2 heap. It didn’t.

Now, as the team falters, no words of support or encouragement from ownership or GM Nick Krall, though you could argue it’s not the general manager’s place to prop up the manager.

That suggests some things, most prominent being ownership is not sold on its manager. It seems obvious at this late stage that no decision will be made on Bell until after the season. Translation: If the Reds miss the playoffs, Bell’s on thin ice. If they go 0-1 to LA or SF, he’s still on thin ice.
