DENVER (AP) - Players who stood by Jim Tracy while the Colorado Rockies endured their worst season in franchise history are reiterating their support for him following the manager's resignation over the weekend.
Left-hander Jeff Francis said he was surprised to hear Tracy had decided to step down, telling The Associated Press in an email: ``I loved playing for him and I think everyone did. The Rockies will miss him for sure.''
Among the most vocal supporters was outfielder Dexter Fowler, who appreciated Tracy sticking with him through protracted slumps over the last two seasons before a breakout 2012. He tweeted, ``Man I'm gonna miss Tracy, thanks for believing in me! You are a wonderful and stand up guy!''
Rex Brothers, Tyler Colvin and Josh Rutledge also tweeted praise for Tracy.
