Renteria, Lincecum lead Giants to title

For the second time in his career, Edgar Renteria delivered the game-winning hit in a World Series clincher. The Giants (and former Red Sox) shortstop shattered a scoreless pitcher's duel between San Francisco ace Tim Lincecum and Rangers starter Cliff Lee, smashing a two-out, three-run home run just over the wall in left-center in the top of the seventh inning. On a night when both pitchers dominated, that single mistake by Lee proved decisive, as the Giants won Game 5, 3-1, to claim the franchise's first title since 1954.

 

Renteria had once before delivered a game-winning hit in the World Series, delivering a bases-loaded single as a 21-year-old to win Game 7 of the 1997 World Series as a member of the Florida Marlins. This time, with runners on second and third and the Giants at risk of squandering a golden opportunity after Pat Burrell's one-out strikeout, Renteria jumped on a 2-0 cutter from Lee for his second homer of the World Series...

Report: Mankins will sign, report to Pats

Patriots left guard Logan Mankins will report to Patriots and sign his tender Tuesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A restricted free agent who has steered clear of Foxboro since spring workouts because of his contract status, Mankins has been replaced in the starting lineup by Dan Connolly since the start of the 2010 season. A two-time Pro Bowler and former All-Pro, Mankins was a first-round pick of the Patriots in 2005.

Rangers owner rips Yanks fans, apologizes

Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg, in an interview on Monday morning with KESN radio station in Dallas, blasted Yankees fans for their behavior during the American League Championship Series. He suggested that, during Game 3 in New York, Yankees fans were "either violent or apathetic" and "an embarrassment."

 

"I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful. They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I've seen in the postseason," said Greenberg. "I thought they were an embarrassment."

 

Greenberg subsequently issued an apology to the Yankees, saying in a statement that he "unfairly and inaccurately disparaged fans of the New York Yankees. Those remarks were inappropriate. Yankees fans are among the most passionate and supportive in all of baseball."

 

Greenberg also called...

UPDATE: Moss's agent confirms WR waived

FOXBORO — The situation involving Randy Moss and the Vikings continues to get curiouser and curiouser.

On the heels of his melancholy press conference after Sunday’s game where he talked about how much he missed playing for the Patriots and took the coaching staff on his new team to task, the wide receiver was reportedly waived by Minnesota on Monday, with coach Brad Childress breaking the news to his players in a Monday meeting.

However, Moss wasn’t present at the meeting, having not flown back to Minnesota with the team after Sunday’s game in Foxboro. In addition, as of late Monday afternoon, Moss reportedly hadn’t been informed by Childress that he had been cut. Making this whole thing even more bizarre is the news that the NFL waiver wire indicated that as of Monday, Moss had not yet been placed on waivers.

However, Moss’s agent Joel Segal added some clarity to things on Monday night...

Belichick: Pats, Moss have 'mutual' respect
By: DJ Bean

In his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Patriots coach Bill Belichick offered very little on the subject of the Vikings' waiving of former Patriot Randy Moss, but did re-iterate that both Moss and the Patriots have plenty of respect for one another. 

 

"I can't comment on any other teams' transactions or players," Belichick said multiple times during the interview. Vikings coach Brad Childress told players on Monday morning that the team had decided to move on from the receiver, who used his post-game press conference after Sunday's game to compliment the Patriots and Belichick. 

 

The Patriots traded Moss, who had 50 touchdown receptions in his time in New England, to the Vikings four games into the season. Belichick said that there was no bad blood as two saw one another as opponents on Sunday.

 

"I talked to Randy after the game as well," Belichick said. "Look, Randy...
