Troy Renck of the Denver Post suggested earlier this week that Jason Giambi, who hasn’t even officially retired from baseball, might be a candidate to fill the Rockies’ managerial vacancy following Jim Tracy’s sudden resignation. And now that suggestion by Renck has morphed into more of an actual report.
Renck writes in a Sunday column that Giambi “remains a candidate for the Rockies’ manager job until he’s ruled out” and will likely have an interview with team officials at some point over the next week.
Giambi might not seem like the managerial type, given his ties to the BALCO case and a reputation for hard-partying, but Renck says he’s spent the past three years as a “coach-in-training,” mapping out potential moves in his head throughout games. Renck also says Giambi has transformed his personal life.
Sandy Alomar Jr., Tim Wallach and Brad Ausmus are also thought to be in the mix for the job.
