At least they didn't seriously consider the Giambino. Oh wait....:scratch:


Weiss seems like a decent guy, but the front office here is meddling a bit. Why send your operations guy into the dugout on a permanent basis?

Weiss was very possibly the worst Rookie-of-the-Year winner in baseball history.

Since last year, there have been three managers hired with zero managerial experience at any level (Ventura, Matheny, and now Weiss).

Is it the relative success of the former two that spurred the Rockies into this move? Other than that, I'm at a loss.

Edit: It looks like Jerry Manuel's name was thrown around.
