Following a month-long search, the Rockies named Walt Weiss their sixth manager Wednesday night. Weiss received a one-year deal, a challenge he embraces. "It has moved fast and it's a great opportunity," Weiss told The Denver Post. "It's who I am, having lived in this city, and played for this organization. It's been part of my identity the last 20 years. I am not motivated by the terms of contract. I am just focused on the job."
