Last week marked the beginning of the end of an era for the Giants, who benched Eli Manning, the quarterback who had started every game for the team since Nov. 21, 2004. Such a stunning move illustrates how far the Giants have fallen following a massive spending spree and playoff appearance in 2016 that had many fans dreaming of Super Bowl.

A move like this generally means a franchise is about to go through a major overhaul, which began with Monday’s firing of head coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese. Considering the Giants are likely to finish with a top three draft pick, that overhaul likely will continue with a new quarterback.

He’s a Francisco Cervelli Womens Jersey bright play-calling mind with a likeable personality. So he would represent the opposite of how McAdoo felt.

On the other hand, Jeff Sullivan tweeted that of 179 pitchers to throw at least 1,000 pitches in 2017, Chatwood ranked 176th in strike rate, which is why he averaged 4.7 walks per nine innings. That wasn’t really a Coors Field thing, as his strike rate at home was 57.7 percent compared to 58.9 percent on the road. Chatwood doesn’t get a lot of Ks, but he did have the sixth-highest ground ball rate among starters.
I give this a soft thumbs up. Chatwood should pitch better as he leaves Coors, but the injury history is an obvious red flag. He’s not going to be a 200-inning guy, but if he’s replacing Arrieta in the rotation, remember that Arrieta threw just 168 innings last year over 30 starts. — Schoenfield
