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.
