Black Plans To Take Simple Approach With Rockies’ Pitchers

“You look at some of these pitchers coming through the system now, they were drafted as Rockies,” Black said. “They were born as Rockies, developed as Rockies. There’s a mindset that’s been taught and talked about through development in our system, and that’s a good thing. Hopefully, as this organization moves forward, we’ll see results.”

Rockies made right choice hiring Bud Black | MLB.com

“Bud talked about it, that urgent feeling of belief that is brewing among our players as they look at themselves and they look around the league in the division and go, ‘OK, we should really start to win games and put pressure on ourselves and pressure on the rest of the division and the National League to get back into the playoffs here,’” said general manager Jeff Bridich. “That’s a wonderful place to be, and I think it’s an honest place to be for who we are right now.

“I think Bud realizes that. I think our players realize that. A lot of people in the organization realize that. I think that is part of what was the attractive piece about the job.”

Bud Black reaches agreement with Colorado Rockies to become new manager

“This is a tough place, a fun place and a not-so-fun place to play all wrapped into one. No lead feels safe,” Black said about Coors Field during his last season with the Padres. “And no lead feels insurmountable when you are trying to attack. You always feel good about your ability to come back.”
