Jim Tracy and Bill Geivett, Rockies Director of Baseball Operations, met but made no decision on the manager's future. The two are expected to meet again Saturday.

Manager Jim Tracy's future with the Colorado Rockies remains uncertain after he spent several hours Friday with Bill Geivett, the team's Director of Baseball Operations. Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports the two sides are expected to meet again Saturday and that a decision is expected soon:

"A team source said that the situation is not expected to linger much longer. Tracy is under contract for $1.4 million next season and could be reassigned in a special assistant role if not brought back as manager."

Renck also writes that Friday's talks didn't involve just Tracy's future, but also roster construction and any possible changes to the coaching staff. A year ago, Tracy had control his coaching staff, but this year Geivett had final say on any coaching staff changes.

The talks come after a disastrous season for the Rockies, who finished 64-98, the third-worst record in all of baseball. According to Renck, Rockies players all said they wanted Tracy to return when asked.
