Rockies Manager Jim Tracy Will Make 2012 Staff Announcement On Wednesday

While the 2011 Colorado Rockies season ends, the 2012 campaign begins right away for manager Jim Tracy. With full knowledge that he is not receiving a contract extension any time soon, Tracy will announce his 2012 coaching staff on Wednesday, according to the Denver Post's Troy Renck.

Bench coach, hitting coach and pitching coach are all open to be replaced, but Tom Runnels is expected to be back as the bench coach, reports Renck. That leaves Carney Lansford and Bob Apodaca awaiting their fates as the hitting and pitching coaches.

Lansford joined Tracy's staff last offseason when the team let go of Don Baylor while Apodaca has been with the team since Oct. 2002. Neither saw their respective areas do well this season, but firing them can be seen as scapegoating them for Tracy's inability to do anything either.

But changing coaches won't do much if the team doesn't add more talent to the roster, which Dan O'Dowd will hopefully do this offseason.
