The Rockies are still looking at different managerial candidates

Last week we heard that the Rockies had narrowed down the candidates for their manager gig to four: Jason Giambi, Walt Weiss, Matt Williams and Tom Runnells.  Guess that’s a soft four, because they’ve interviewed someone else:

According to Thomas Harding, who covers the Rockies for MLB.Com, Double A Frisco manager Steve Buechele has interviewed for the Colorado managerial opening. Buechele has been a manager in the Rangers system for four years and has guided his team to the playoffs in all four years. He did so in one year at Class A Bakersfield and three straight seasons at Frisco.

Either the quartet of candidates did not impress, there is a division in the Rockies clubhouse, or someone owes Buechele a favor.

    There is an unconcerned Internet report out there that The Rockies also plan to interview Sylvester Stallone. A source who is not close to the team and thus requested anonymity, said that the man who portrayed Rocky, would be a natural fit.

    Makes you wonder if they’ll take a long look at John McNamara.
