Why It’s A ‘good Bet’ Giants Don’t Retire Eli Manning’s Number This Season, Especially With No Fans At MetLife Stadium

At Eli Manning’s retirement ceremony in January — wait, that was this year? — Giants co-owner John Mara made it crystal clear that the team planned to honor the franchise’s most successful quarterback in short order.

“No Giant will ever wear number 10 again,” Mara said at the time.

Few players have ever felt the love and respect among Giants fans as Manning. That’s what leading the organization on two improbable Super Bowl runs will do. As such, it wouldn’t feel right if Manning was honored with a jersey retirement ceremony in 2020. Not without fans in the stands.

Monday, it was revealed that fans won’t be allowed to attend Giants games at MetLife Stadium this season due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

As such, don’t expect the Giants to go forward with a ceremony honoring Manning at MetLife just yet, either.

The Giants don’t have any plans to induct Manning into the Ring of Honor in 2020 just yet, a person familiar with the team’s thinking told NJ Advance Media. There hasn’t been in-depth conversations about the topic, the person said, but it’s a “good bet” to expect that the retirement of No. 10 will be delayed … For now.

The Giants haven’t inducted anyone into the Ring of Honor since 2016, when coach Tom Coughlin, executive Ernie Accorsi and defensive end Justin Tuck were all honored. Offensive lineman Chris Snee and defensive end Osi Umenyiora were among those honored in 2015.

Even without a ceremony, though, if Mara is to be believed, nobody will be wearing No. 10 for the Giants. Not in 2020, and not anytime thereafter.

Manning earned that much.

Rockies Set 52 Of 60 Available Slots On Player Pool Roster

The Rockies left themselves wiggle room in putting together an initial Player Pool Roster, filling only 52 of the possible 60 slots in advance of players reporting to training camp at Coors Field on July 1.

They already have optioned eight of the 52 designated players to the minor leagues, but by having them on the Player Pool Roster they could call any of them up if a need arises.

One of the more interesting moves was for the Rockies to include left-handed pitcher Ryan Rolison among six left-handed pitchers who will report to camp. A proud sponsor of InsideTheSeams.Com, click the logo to visit Sam’s website

Rolison was the Rockies 1st-round draft choice out of the University of Mississippi in 2018, and pitched at both of the Rockies full-season A teams — Asheville and Lancaster — a year ago. He was 9-9 in 25 starts, and had a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.3-to-1.

Rolison also was in camp with the Rockies the past spring, before it was ended prematurely because of the pandemic. He appeared in two games, working 2 2/3 innings, and allowing four unearned runs.

By bringing him into pre-season camp, the Rockies staff will get a longer look at his potential, and the Rockies can eventually put him on their “taxi squad.” That would allow him to be a part of the workouts in the group of players who could eventually be called up to the big-league team if a need arises in the 60-game regular-season schedule that will begin the last weekend of July.

The lone member of the 40-man roster not among the 52 players on the Pool Roster is right-hander Justin Lawrence, who will begin serving an 80-game suspension once the season begins for violating baseball’s drug policy.

Lawrenced tested positive for Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone, or DHCMT, a compound linked to the oral steroid Turinaboo. It is banned as part of MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
