The Colorado Rockies will have a new manager next season, and it could be a familiar face. Troy Renck of the Denver Post writes that veteran first baseman Jason Giambi “remains a candidate for the Rockies' manager job until he's ruled out.”

So, from now on the Monday column will be called Monday Quarterbacking. Get used to it. Oh, and congratulations to Russell Wilson for beating the New England Patriots on Sunday. I promise that's the last mention of football here.
