Jim Tracy: Rockies manager resigns after 98 losses
Question of the Day
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.
“Basically, Tracy called me and told me his intentions and we talked about a lot of different things, but he had already made up his mind,” said Geivett, who also worked with Tracy in Montreal and Los Angeles.
Energized by the young players and the challenge of fixing things, Tracy had said repeatedly the last several weeks that he wanted to fulfill the final year on his contract in 2013. But he changed his mind after meeting with Geivett for several hours on Friday and then mulling those discussions over the weekend.
Tracy didn’t return phone calls and texts from the AP.
“I mean, that’s how I started our meeting on Friday, that he was the manager of the club,” Geivett said. “Like I said, it was surprising.”
“His decision was made when he called me and I respected that,” Geivett said.
The Rockies will be the fourth team to change managers this year. Boston fired Bobby Valentine, Cleveland dismissed Manny Acta and Houston let go Brad Mills.
