02:15 AM ET 10.13 | Jim Tracy tried about everything to stay afloat in 2012. Four man rotations, strict pitch counts, you name it. Regardless, at the end of the year, he was out as Rockies manager. Now, it's time to line up candidates to take over and Jason Giambi is gaining traction as one of those candidates. The Rockies may be in position to take an unusual route to filling the vacancy, and here's the case why.

the rockies should get a new hitting coach, BARRY BONDS could be the right element in that position!!!

bringing in a new hitting coach its a part of the new plan in denver, after replacing every coach and with a new manager things could become more accurate plus the franchise most stop trading every player that could become a star!!!

bring anybody just to cover colorado rockies holes in the team shouldn't be the right thing to do,,,

wiseup: another catcher whose name has been Thrown around is Tony Pena. As far as bonds as hitting coach he can teach them how to get the roids, take them and ,how to get away with it.

It doesn't matter who is the manager in Denver because they are years behind LA and SF in the division.

Too funny, because of the success of first time managers without previous manager experience like Robin Ventura and Mike Matheny, now every team and their brother that is looking for a new manager is going after that trend. See if it rubs off on them. Just like when it was fashionable to hire a twenty-something year old General Manager.
