Moment of Levity: The Big Picture
JIM TRACY, TOBACCO ENTHUSIAST
No one would argue that Jim Tracy has been anything but a revelation since taking over as manager of the Rockies. He's taken a team from the NL West basement into pole position for the NL Wild Card, and he's done it with exactly the same players. He really has been a role model for managerial leadership. Unfortunately, as this hyper-zoomed AP photo attests, he's not quite as convincing a role model for young baseball players, considering the fact that he has a big, fat lip full of tobacco while sitting behind the dugout screen. If he's been doing that throughout his playing and managerial career, it's amazing he still has his entire cheek in tact. (AP/David Zalubowski)
