The Rockies under Bud Black

Bud Black is currently the third-longest tenured manager in Rockies history, behind Clint Hurdle and Don Baylor. He just completed his fifth full season as a manager, and his legacy is... mixed. It started with a bang: under him, the Rockies went to the postseason in back-to-back seasons for the first time in franchise history, and even if both incursions into October baseball ended poorly (1-4 in total), that’s still no small feat. We know how the story goes, however: the Rockies’ rotation falls apart due to a mix of injury and underperformance, their awful position player depth and Major League development catches up to them, they fall off a cliff in 2019 and they’re still trying to recover.
