In response:

I can give reasons
1.Lack of starting pitching
2. Front office not spending money
Every team that fired Bell was WORSE after he left.

I don't get the support for Bell thought process

Bell's Tigers record (1996-1998) 184W 277L
  Win % = .399

After Bell [Lance Parrish] (1998-1999) 82W 104L
  Win % = .441

Tigers got better when Bell left

Bell's Rockies record (2000-2002) 161W 185L
  Win % = .465

After Bell [Clint Hurdle] (2000-2007) 426W 505L
  Win % = .458

Rockies stayed about the sam after Bell left

Note: All of these teams had a lack of starting picthing and front office support with and without Bell.
