As expected the Rockies have signed manager Walt Weiss to a contract extension after he originally signed on for a one-year deal last offseason, with Troy Renck of the Denver Post reporting that the new deal is for three seasons.

Weiss left a high school coaching gig to become the Rockies’ manager and went 74-88 for a last place finish in his first season, so a three-year contract is certainly a substantial commitment from the team’s point of view. No word yet on the monetary details.

    I am surprised this got done before the Mattingly extension. Seemed like the Dodgers had nothing better to do than to negotiate his contract.

    Aaron…
    Anyway we can get the other lineup by 5:00 P.M. (ET) today?
    I saw D.J. posted last nights lineup around 7:15 P.M. (ET) and I immediately started sweating.
    Anywho…yeah…by 5:00 P.M. (ET)? I would be grateful. Very grateful.

    Ten game improvement over 2012, with a bunch of 1st and 2nd year players in the lineup, and both Cargo and Tulo each missing well over a month, and only three decent starting pitchers, and a much declined legacy player.

    I don’t see a problem with the extension, Weiss did an admirable job with a team more akin to the 2004-2005 Rockies than anything else. The club can be really good in about two years. That is, if anyone can ever get 155 games out of Tulo and Cargo in a season ever again.
