Buddy Bell Resigning After the Season

Buddy Bell made the announcement this afternoon that he is stepping down as the Royals' manager at the end of the 2007 season. He said he wants to spend more time with his family, which is understandable, given his cancer scare last season. Family certainly trumps baseball and Bell spoke during his press conference about regretting the lack of time he's spent with his family in the past.

Bell will become a special assistant to GM Dayton Moore after the season. Moore has a lot of time to pick a successor.

Let the speculation begin.

But for now, hats off to Buddy for making a great decision.
