Option #3: Jason Giambi
The Golden Thong is missed from the Rockies clubhouse, that much is certain. But is Giambi a viable managerial candidate? Back before they hired Weiss, Giambi was close to becoming the Rockies manager. I’m glad the Colorado Rockies passed on The Great Giambino back then because it would be a heck of a lot smarter to hire him now.
Who better to get these young kids in line than Jason the Mason? I call him the Mason because he knows how to lay a few bricks, you guys. Building blocks, if you will.
Another thing helping Jason is that he isn’t really that old yet. My problem with old men stems from the fact that they often whine about things that don’t have any effect on the world and are so stubborn that they refuse to accept that the world changes. Jason isn’t old enough to do that yet, so maybe he won’t spend time whining about how he thinks rap music is killing music instead of managing the baseball team. Just my thought process.
