Matt Williams' interview with the Colorado Rockies' brass for the team's open managerial post was held on Monday, per Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. Williams' meeting with the team represented the last for the four candidates for the position.

Williams feels the interview went well, telling Saunders that he "felt very comfortable" and "was prepared" for the Rockies' onslaught of questions probing Williams for ideas on how he would handle playing at altitude and carrying over the team's performance during homestands onto road trips.

Jason Giambi, Walt Weiss and Tom Runnells are the other three candidates that were interviewed by the club following the resignation of former manager Jim Tracy. According to Williams, the Rockies may not come to a decision any time in the very near future, with Dan O'Dowd and Bill Geivett presumably headed to the GM meetings, which will be held on Wednesday and Thursday in Indian Hills, Calif.
