Colorado Rockies Owner Dick Monfort Supports Manager Jim Tracy And GM Dan O'Dowd

The Colorado Rockies have not played good baseball this season -- the team's 15-26 record is the NL's second worst -- but owner Dick Monfort still believes in both Jim Tracy and Dan O'Dowd and says he is not going to fire them.

"I have had people get in my face and say, 'You've got to do this and do that.' And believe me, I understand the fans' frustration, " Monfort told The Denver Post. "I know everybody wants a fall guy and everybody wants blood. I just don't think it's appropriate to do."
