The boys are back in town: Rockies hire Weiss, Bichette ... Are Castilla and Big Cat next?

It looks like the band is getting back together in Colorado.

The Rockies recently hired former shortstop Walt Weiss to be their next manager, and on Tuesday, brought on Dante Bichette to serve as hitting coach. We can only assume that the team will now add Andres "Big Cat" Galarraga as first-base coach, Vinny Castilla for the third-base coaching position and maybe Larry Walker as a bullpen catcher. Can Ellis Burks still pinch-hit?

If you recall, these stars were part of the power-packed team that won the NL Wild Card in 1995 (can't believe it was that long ago) -- a squad that compiled 200 homers, a .282 team average and 785 total runs.

And now, they're baacckk ...
