The Million Dollar Question: How did O'Dowd manage to retain his job for so long?
http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/11...ger-15-seasonsDENVER -- Dan O'Dowd resigned Wednesday as the Colorado Rockies' general manager after a mostly unsuccessful tenure.
His time at Coors Field reads like this: 15 years, four winning seasons, two postseason appearances.
O'Dowd wasn't the only team executive to resign Wednesday. Senior vice president Bill Geivett followed him out the front office door after Colorado's fourth consecutive losing season.
The Rockies are starting fresh from within, appointing Jeff Bridich to run the show. Bridich has served as the team's senior director of player development since 2011.
