08:10 AM ET 10.08 | The Jim Tracy era has come to a close in Colorado, leaving the Rockies looking for their sixth manager in franchise history. Tracy's stunning decision to resign leaves the Rockies waking up this morning conducting their first managerial search since Jim Leyland resigned following the 1999 season. Rockies bench coach Tom Runnells and Triple-A manager Stu Cole are in-house candidates with the search likely to expand soon. Veteran slugger Jason Giambi would retire as a player if he was considered, according to a source close to the player. "Jim Tracy's resignation is something I truly regret," said all-star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. "I always believed he would have a chance to be with us next year."

It doesn't matter who is the manager in Colorado because they are years away from competing with LA and SF in their division.
