 Denver, CO (SportsNetwork. Jairo Diaz Jersey .com) - Colorado Rockies general manager Dan ODowd has resigned after 15 seasons and Jeff Bridich was named as his replacement. ODowd was the second GM in team history, taking over from Bob Gebhard after the 1999 season. Assistant general manager Bill Geivett also resigned Wednesday. First of all I want to thank Dan and Bill for their years of commitment to the Rockies organization, said Rockies owner Dick Monfort in a statement Wednesday. They have been friends and colleagues, and their families have been a part of the Rockies family, for a very long time. The Rockies reached the postseason twice under ODowd, including an improbable run to the National League pennant in 2007, but the club suffered through a 66-96 mark in 2014 -- the second-worst in the 22-year history of the franchise. Only the 2012 team was worse with 98 losses. Bridich joined the Rockies front office in 2004 and held different positions within the organization before taking over his most recent role as senior director of player development in September 2011. The 37-year-old was the senior director of baseball operations from 2006-11. We are very fortunate to have an extremely bright, energetic and talented group of individuals currently within our own organization that are ready and eager to utilize their skills and experience, added Monfort. I know Jeff is anxious to begin working on the goal of putting a championship team on the field that the Rockies staff, our fans and our region deserve. The Rockies last reached the postseason as a wild card in 2009 and havent had a winning season since 2010.

Mesoraco hurt his hamstring while scoring from second in Friday nights 5-4 loss at Atlanta. Chapman was hit by a line drive during an exhibition game on March 19, breaking his nose and a bone above his left eye. The left-hander looked strong while throwing 43 pitches in batting practice before Saturday nights game against the Braves.If Canada defeats Russia in tonight’s gold medal final of the World Junior Hockey Championship, there will horns honking all across this land and celebrations from downtown Toronto all the way to the oceans in both directions. A win tonight will be celebrated alongside all the other great moments of the Canada-Russia hockey rivalry and the heroes from this year’s tournament will be cast into part of Canadian hockey history. And if Canada disappoints and loses? Well, there be some very tough questions that should be asked about how a team that was so dominant throughout the tournament could stumble in the biggest game on home ice. But there will also be those who will suggest we have no right to criticize, that these are simply teenagers trying their best, that they’re just kids and we all ought to button our opinions and get our priorities in order. What a bunch of bunk. Here’s the deal with this tournament - you can’t have it both ways. You can’t say that this tournament is a marquee event on the Canadian sporting calendar, one worthy of our undivided attention, sky-high ticket prices and television rights, but we’re only supposed to take it seriously if we win. We can’t say that we’re allowed to make these kids heroes, but not goats. Face it - this event is elite sport and nothing less. A good number of these kids have already been drafteed by NHL teams, some have cashed sizeable signing-bonus cheques and the rest have advisors and agents and programs in place to maximize their earning potential at the professional level. Antonio Senzatela Jersey. This is not just an extra-curricular activity and there’s no point trying to pretend these are just teenagers playing for fun and, therefore, there should be no room to criticize them. A lot of these players are the same age as many of those who will participate in next week’s College Football Playoff National Championship between Oregon and Ohio State. Is anyone saying the players on those teams should be insulated from being critiqued because they’re teenagers? Is anyone saying we’re not allowed to say Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was brutal against Oregon on New Years Day because he happens to be 20 years old? The days of the World Junior tournament being a quaint little affair ended a long time ago. This is a big-time, high-performance elite sporting event. Anyone who doesn’t realize that has no business being part of it. So get ready to celebrate … a Canadian win will result in this year’s team being showered with praise, as they should be. But a Canadian loss resulting from a mediocre performance tonight? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with making the coaches and players accountable for that kind of result, as well. ' ' '
