Buddy Bell found out from general manager Mark Shapiro earlier this month that the Phillies wanted to talk to him about their opening for a manager,
and it didn't take Bell much thought to let Shapiro know he would be interested.
Not that anybody being interested in Bell came as a surprise. He has a track record that makes him a strong candidate for the job, and the fact that
the Phillies were looking for someone with experience makes the 53-year-old Bell seem like an ideal fit.
