The Rockies managerial candidates include … Jason Giambi?

Jim Tracy resigned and the Rockies are trying to figure out who might replace him.  Troy Renck names some names:

As for the outside candidates, one would figure that Alomar would wait to see if he’s asked to stay on in Cleveland and Ausmus might want to wait to see if the Red Sox want him.

The internals: Giambi?  That would be unexpected. I know that he has, in his post Yankees life, transformed into a good organizational guy and a mentor, but I don’t recall anyone ever talking about him like he’s managerial material. Could be fun. And not just because it would make anti-PED people’s heads explode.

Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
