After leading the Rockies to the playoffs and winning manager of the year in 2009, Jim Tracy has probably earned the right to take his time answering reporters' questions.
That, however, doesn't mean reporters can't poke fun at the Rockies' skipper's long-windedness. In a weekend interview, CBS4's Vic Lombardi overlayed clips of several Rockies players and managers speaking about their manager's verbosity over footage one of Tracy's answers to a single question. Lombardi clocked the answer at 4:47.
No confirmation has been made on whether this breaks any of Tracy's records.
