Bud Black, Former Padres Manager, Hired As Rockies’ New Skipper


The Colorado Rockies have chosen former San Diego Padres manager Bud Black to lead their club next season.

Black spent over eight seasons with the Padres, amassing a 649-713 record. He had just two seasons with above .500 records and never reached postseason play, but Black did lose a one-game playoff to the Rockies at the end of the 2007 campaign.

The Rockies, meanwhile, have not had a winning record since the 2010 season.
