KUSA - Walt Weiss is set to return as manager of the Rockies for another season, according to the Denver Post.
"It was up to him. We are trying to figure out a way where the contract is not an issue. He's done a good job. He's improved, he's been loyal," owner Dick Monfort told Troy Renck Friday.
Weiss had signed a one year contract with the organization prior to this season. The Rockies were much improved from last year - when they lost a franchise worst 98 games and fired manager Jim Tracy midway through -and they felt comfortable allowing Weiss to continue through at least 2014.
