DENVER (AP) — Jim Tracy wants a chance to put the pieces back together.

The manager of the Colorado Rockies will meet with the team's director of major league operations Friday to discuss the direction of a club that just completed its worst season ever.

The Rockies' 98-loss debacle featured a historically awful starting rotation that won just 20 games at Coors Field, a realignment of their front office, a pitching coach who quit midseason, devastating injuries to Todd Helton and Troy Tulowitzki, among others, and an uncertain future for Tracy.

"Ace" acquisition Jeremy Guthrie, who was brought in to eat up innings, went 1-5 and flirted with a 10.00 ERA at Coors Field before being traded to Kansas City for Jonathan Sanchez, who posted an 8.59 ERA at home.
