Can someone give me a reason why Belly should NOT be the starting 2B next yr?

Ronnie owns Felipe in every facet of the game besides speed.

Age + current contract.  The two things Belliard can't control are the top two reasons Felipe will probably start next year.  Lopez is 26, Ronnie is 33.  Felipe has a lucrative deal right now, and is considered a building block for the franchise.  As much as Ronnie has outplayed Felipe, it's a very complicated choice.
