Mashup: Rams LB says Giants coach faking

Giants defensive lineman Deon Grant was at the center of the this week's controversy involving players faking injuries to slow down no-huddle offenses. On Wednesday, despite video that shows him walking and then suddenly flopping to the ground (along with a teammate, who got up after he saw Grant down) in Monday's game vs. the Rams, Grant attempted to claim he had injured his right knee, even going so far as to show the swelled knee to reporters as evidence. The only problem? During the play in question, Grant appeared to get treatment on his left knee.

"I went down, which is what you're supposed to do when you have an injury," Grant said. "It's just in the NFL they expect you to put your body out there all the time, so sometimes when you go down for the softest injury -- that they claim it may be -- it's a problem. But how can another person or the media or anybody else tell you when you're hurt or when it's a faking injury?"

Yanks sweep Rays to clinch AL East

The Yankees clinched their 16th postseason berth in 17 years and also secured the American League East title for the 12th time in 16 years by sweeping a double header against the Tampa Bay Rays, taking both the first and second games by 4-2 counts. At 95-60 this year, the Yankees cannot be caught by a second-place Red Sox team that has an 88-68 record with six games remaining.

The Sox were tied or had the lead for first place in the AL East for 64 days this season, but the team's dramatic September fade (a 5-16 record to date) allowed the Yankees to wrap up the division title with a week to go in the season.

While the sight of another team clinching the AL East would ordinarily be painful, the Red Sox were in a position to enjoy the Yankees' success. The Yankees' doubleheader sweep allowed Boston to gain a half-game on the Rays in the standings despite the Sox' 6-4 loss to the Orioles. The Sox are now up 2.5 games (two games in the loss column)...

Ortiz: 'We've never collapsed that bad'

In the wake of another frustrating defeat at the hands of the Orioles, the Red Sox clubhouse was somber after a 6-4 defeat in the final home game at Fenway that saw the home fans voice their displeasure.

"If I'm the fans I would be frustrated too," Ortiz said. "I've been here what, nine years? We've never collapsed that bad. Trust me, we've been through some tough times. It's bad though. It seems like no matter what we do it's going to be bad."

Ortiz seemed at a loss to describe his team's problems after losing 16 of 21 games in the month of September.

"The way we've been playing, it's crazy," Ortiz said. "I've never seen anything like that around here since I've been here." 

He continued, "If you were to ask me in August about that, if you would have told me that would happen in September [back] in August, I would have laughed at you."

Ortiz said that he didn't think...

Bruins lose preseason opener in OT
By: DJ Bean

Sixth overall pick Mika Zibanejad beat Tuukka Rask in overtime Wednesday as the Bruins fell to the Senators, 2-1, in Ottawa.

The team will return to Boston, where they will host the Islanders Friday night.
