The much-anticipated Friday meeting between Jim Tracy and Bill Geivett didn't result in any fireworks, and no word will come on the Rockies manager's status until Monday or later.
Tracy met with Rockies director of major league operations Bill Geivett on Friday about the manager's role for the upcoming season, as well as other topics such as roster construction and the club's overall direction. No decision was made on whether or not Tracy will be retained as the team's manager, and no further meetings have been scheduled, although Renck notes that the two could talk again on Saturday.
The Rockies have shown a willingness to bring back Tracy for the final year of his contract, in which he is set to make $1.4 million. However, a shake-up of the coaching staff is likely in some capacity after the Rockies went a franchise-worst 64-98 in 2012. In past years, Tracy was given full control of the coaching staff, but Bill Geivett will have the final say on who stays and who goes this time around.
