Next for O'Neal: Riding subway as 'Shaquita'

WALTHAM -- Just days after heading to Harvard Square to pretend he was a statue for an hour, Shaquille O'Neal revealed what his next experiments will be.

 

Initially, Shaq mentioned that his next public foray will be seasonally-based.

 

"I thinking of buy a snowsuit, standing in the middle of a field and have people throw snowballs at me," he said. "Something different."

 

But then, after a suggestion from a reporter that he could integrate the 'T' into his next field trip, O'Neal latched onto the idea.

 

"No, never," he said when asked if he had ever been on the subway in Boston. "That’s a good idea. I’m going to do that. What’s today? Sunday? I’m going to do that next week."

 

O'Neal then took it to another level when explaining how he was going to appear when boarding the train. He said that he would be...

Doc on C's D: 'We don't have a Tony Allen'

WALTHAM -- The Celtics have plenty of size and depth but coach Doc Rivers admitted that one of the questions coming into Tuesday's season opener against Miami is who will fill the important role of defensive stopper like Tony Allen did successfully in the playoffs last season. 

 

"I don't know yet, honestly. We don't have a Tony Allen here," Rivers said of Allen, who left in the offseason and signed a deal with the Memphis Grizzlies. 

 

Rivers added that he believes that Marquis Daniels could fill that role eventually, now that he is back from an injured right shoulder that slowed him for the second half of last season.

 

"Marquis is healthy," Rivers added. "He was terrific in the regular season, defensively, so he's going to be somewhat of that. But we don't have that one guy right now. Maybe that will come."

Report: Dolphins asked Pats about Mankins

According to the Miami Herald, Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland called the Patriots to inquire about a potential deal for hold-out offensive lineman Logan Mankins.

 

"I suppose the sound on the other end of the phone line was Bill Belichick laughing uncontrollably at the suggestion he might trade a Pro Bowl player to a division rival," Armando Salguero wrote in the Herald. "But you have to admire Ireland's moxie for exploring the issue, however improbable. The Patriots, after all, have made some curious trades and roster decisions lately."

 

Mankins was not traded before last week's NFL trade deadline. Now, he has until Nov. 16 to decide whether or not to sign his tender offer from the Patriots in hopes of accumulating enough service time to be eligible for unrestricted free agency.

Henry confirms Farrell heading to Jays

Red Sox principal owner John Henry, in an email to the Boston Globe, confirmed that pitching coach John Farrell would be leaving the Red Sox to take over as manager of the Toronto Blue Jays. Farrell served as Sox pitching coach for four seasons, from 2007-2010, and turned down the opportunity to interview with other clubs on multiple occasions during that time. But Henry suggested that the pitching coach was ready to see his career advance with a new challenge.

 

"We were able to keep John as a part of our organization longer than a couple of other teams would have wanted, but it really is time for John to step up to the next level," Henry's email said. "He will be an effective, excellent manager. I expect him to manage in MLB for as long as he wants to. He's going to an excellent...

World Series set: Uribe's HR lifts Giants

Juan Uribe's opposite field, solo home run in the eighth inning proved the game-winner for the Giants, who ultimately claimed a 3-2 victory over the Phillies in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series. The win gives the Giants a ticket to take on the Rangers in the World Series, a destination San Francisco hadn't reached since 2002. San Francisco will host Game 1 of the World Series against Texas at home Wednesday night.

 

San Francisco closer Brian Wilson, a native of New Hampshire, came on in relief of Tim Lincecum with one out in the eighth to record five outs for the save. Lincecum, who threw 104 pitches Thursday night, made his first relief appearance since 2008, getting one out while allowing a pair of singles before giving way to Wilson, who struck out Ryan Howard looking on a full count with runners on first and second.

 

Philadelphia jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first off of Giants' starter Jonathan...
