SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - If Ramon Hernandez's big smile and immediate, positive remarks about the first day of work under Walt Weiss provided any insight, the Colorado Rockies believe they have the man to manage their club back into a winner.
Weiss led his pitchers and catchers through their first spring training workout Tuesday at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick and made one thing certain: His team will play defense, and that will start by turning double plays. Plenty of them.
He preached fundamentals in the field, knowing he has the offensive talent to score runs.
Weiss will make a point to spend the early weeks getting to know each of his players, particularly the pitchers he's not as familiar with at this stage.
The 49-year-old Weiss called it a ``good day.''
