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.

    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.
