Bill Geivett should be the Colorado Rockies next manager.The Colorado Rockies continue to spin in circles.Assistant General Manager Bill Geivett and General Manager Dan O'Dowd are in the process of interviewing for their open manager position after Jim Tracy let them know that he couldn't handle the reins that they were putting on him. He passed up $1.4 million instead of being held down by the decisions being made within the Rockies front office.Anyone who follows this Rockies organization knows one simple truth. There would be no big-names talked about in the search. There is zero chance that the Rockies would look to lure Joe Torre or Tony LaRussa out of retirement. They weren't going to look at hiring Ryne Sandberg, who is being groomed for the job in Philadelphia. Those who have any knowledge of how the Rockies front office works, knows that the odds are, the team would either go with someone from within the organization, or someone who has no managerial experience....

  • It has been obvious from the outset that Dan O'Dud has needed to hit the door running and not let it hit him in the butt as he leaves.. Now I say the same for Mr. Geivett!!! The Monforts need to sell this organization to someone who will be willing to spend the money to get all the right personnel here, keep the team here and bring a quality and competitive team together that will be a regular threat to make the pennant chase eahch year.. That also means getting a group of starting pitchers and quality relievers. Giambi should be looked at for the hitting coaches position and then find a qualified pitching coach staff... This should be done after hiring on a manager "from the outside" The problem with the Rockies front office is that they are too busy lining their pockets while spending pennies on players and replacement managers and coaches by hiring from within!! The fans are sick and tired of mediocre baseball. It's no longer just a nice day at one of the best ballparks in the country. Tulowitski and Helton and the young up and comers can no longer hold the fort here while the upper management sits back, resting on their laurels (their butts too), while a team rattles around in the basement trying to find enough pieces and parts to field a team. IT STARTS AT THE TOP!! Owners and a upper management that are unwilling to open the wallet and loosen the purse strings to put together a tough contending team. " Wait till next year", isn't going to cut it anymore.. I stopped watching the Rokies just before the mid point this season as I could see the writing on the wall... My hats off to Mr. Tracy for telling the powers that be to "shove it"
    To the Monforts, O'Dud and Geivett.. Take your balls and go find another place to play!!!

The Colorado Rockies are one of only two teams currently searching for their next manager, the Boston Red Sox are the other.

Could Giambi have juice to lead?

If the Colorado Rockies step outside the box -- and perhaps outside the warning track -- and hire Jason Giambi as their manager, they can lay claim to having the most decorated skipper in baseball, at least when it comes to body art.
