Got to agree with you on this one. The guy works his butt off every game. In a league where hustle seems to have died, someone who does hustle can make a solid living.

Faried isn't super talented but is going to have a long career due to hard work. One of our coaches needs to take Faried aside and just work on free throw shooting if he can get that up to like 70-75% he could easily be a 18-20pts 10-12reb a night type player. Which could get him to some all-star games.

Walt Weiss - I think it's a good choice but I think they need a lot more changes.

Only the Rockies are savvy enough to take a high school coach and turn him into an MLB manager

I like Weiss a lot, but this was a pretty underwhelming, predictable move for a franchise that seems pretty content to play favorites rather than do what it takes to win. Of the 6 interviewed, I really think Williams should have been the pick.

Yeah...well apparently Weiss really won't have much control anyways and he apparently won't pick most of his staff. This is just depressing, and really is so characteristic of this franchise.

From mlb.com...

Quote:
The Rockies want the manager to be a key to a collaborative effort between the front office and the field. The manager will be heavily involved in forming the coaching staff, but there are clearly people from the old staff that they like. Runnells is a clear candidate to remain in some capacity. First-base coach Glenallen Hill is still with the organization, and Bo McLaughlin and Jim Wright -- who served as co-pitching coaches after Bob Apodaca resigned in late June -- are liked by club management.

Heavily involved in the pitching coach decision will be longtime Major League pitching coach Mark Wiley, who was hired in October in the newly created position of director of pitching operations. Wiley will set policies and practices in place governing how the club selects and trains pitches, and will have a voice in the Major League staff's approach.
I am interested in this Mark Wiley guy though...sounds like he's going to be the pitching Czar for the franchise. May have to call into the Drew Goodman show and get his take on this dude when I get back from my travels.

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm already off the Wiley train. His resume? Cleveland Indians Pitching Coach 1988–1991, 1995–1998....AKA the Dan O'Dowd Cleveland years......ugh just another damn Indians retread and proof that O'Dowd still has so much influence. They need to gut all these Cleveland Indians dudes from the 90s....

Agreed on all accounts Bonzai. The Monfort Rockies are a great example of a professional sports franchise that operates under the "good ole boys club" approach to personnel. Of course, we do see that same strategy from time to time with the Avs...

We won our division at 8-8 last year. 9-7 might be good enough to sneak in.

They might be able to get in as a wild card. Biggest competition will be with PIT.

NFC East - NY Giants
NFC North - Chicago / Green Bay
NFC South - Atlanta
NFC West - San Fran / Seattle

Will be close between Seattle and Minny, but Minny still has to face GB and Chicago again I think

AFC East - Pats
AFC North - Batlimore / Pittsburgh
AFC South - Houston / Indy
AFC West - Broncos


Totally realistic they could play the Broncos first round. But I also think the Broncos have a chance at a first round bye.

I think the Broncos have a one in three chance of getting a first-round bye and maybe a one in ten chance of having home-field advantage through the playoffs.

Broncos should be 12-4 or 13-3. Thats good for at least 3rd in the AFC. It really depends on how Houston continues and if the Patriots are going to be the Patriots of olde

Broncos defense has been stellar today, but the offense has been off.

Sure would be nice if both sides of the ball could get on the same page for an entire game.
