O'Dowd leaves as Rockies longtime GM

The Associated Press

DENVER (AP) Colorado Rockies general manager Dan O'Dowd and senior vice president Bill Geivett (gy-VET') are leaving the front office after the team turned in a fourth straight losing season.

Jeff Bridich (BRID'ich) is taking over as the new GM.

O'Dowd spent 15 seasons in charge of the Rockies, the highlight of which was an appearance in the 2007 World Series, where the team was swept by Boston. His power dwindled in recent years with the rise of Geivett, who was promoted to senior vice present of baseball operations in August 2012. He had an office next to manager Walt Weiss in the clubhouse.

The Rockies finished 66-96 and 28 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West.

Bridich has been the team's senior director of player development since 2011.
