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."

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...
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...
WALTHAM -- Jermaine O’Neal admitted following practice on Monday that he’s been a disappointment so far, in part because of injuries that have affected his conditioning.
“It’s been challenging," O'Neal said of his slew of injuries. "Obviously, the hamstring, the back a little bit, the wrist, now the knee so it’s been extremely disappointing for me so far. But obviously, trials and tribulations will make you stronger and you have to take that as you never can be successful if you don’t fail. So far, I haven’t been able do things out there that I want to do out there."
The 31-year-old O'Neal, who practiced with the first team and will play on Tuesday in Detroit, was signed in early July to a two-year, $12 million deal. He played in the first two games, scoring just three points, before swelling in his left knee sidelined him for the game against the Knicks last Friday...
With Randy Moss being waived by the Vikings on Monday, there is a chance that the Patriots would have a shot to bring the controversial receiver back to New England. If the Pats have the opportunity, should they welcome him back? Cast your vote in our poll at the It Is What It Is blog.
