#Reds will host a press conference to announce David Bell as their new manager on Monday at 11 am— C. Trent Rosecrans (@ctrent) October 21, 2018

- MLB Trade Rumors tries to find a trading partner for the Blue Jays involving Justin Smoak.
- The UW men’s basketball team had a very impressive win in an exhibition game yesterday.
Maybe they are for real. @UW_MBB crushed what many believe is a very good Nevada team in a 91-73 road exhibition win. Jaylen Nowell scored 26 points on 12-for-15 shooting.https://t.co/j7rkfp7GLg pic.twitter.com/v1MNjcUvZ2— Percy Allen (@percyallen) October 22, 2018
