The Rockies have officially suggested that the Walt Weiss hiring was a good one, despite the team ending up in the basement, by extending his contract.
Colorado has offered Weiss a three-year deal and he has accepted the terms, stating:
I am very excited & grateful to have the opportunity to lead this club as we work toward building a championship level team.”
— Walt Weiss
The Rockies finished a dismal 74-88. While it was 10 games better than they did in 2012, they were still last in the NL West and an almost constant embarrassment to the fans.
