    Tracy resigns as manager of Rocks...

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/84...-record-losses

    DENVER -- Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy resigned Sunday, stepping down after the team set a franchise record for losses.
    The Rockies said a search for Tracy's replacement would begin immediately. Colorado finished last in the NL West this year while going 64-98.

    Tracy
    Tracy was promoted from bench coach to manager in May 2009. He was voted the NL Manager of the Year that season after guiding Colorado into the playoffs.
    The Rockies went 294-308 under Tracy.
    I gotta admit, I'm surprised. Considering the pitching the GM got him, there wasn't much he could've done to be honest.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Could see it coming when he had to use the 75 pitch limit for starters rule as he's the old school type who manages with his gut.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I hope Dusty comes back next year as I am a Dusty supporter but Tracy would be a good pick if he doesnt come back and since Terry F. signed with the Tribe.

    No thanks. I'd rather have Chris Speier.
