Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn't quite as excited about Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin as everyone else. Despite Lin leading the shorthanded Knicks to five straight wins, including a 38-point effort against the Lakers that earned him the cover of Sports Illustrated, Mayweather insists Lin is getting preferential treatment because of his race.
On his Twitter page Monday, Mayweather wrote: Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise.
Controversy is nothing new for Mayweather, who insulted rival Manny Pacquiao with racial and homophobic slurs in an online video two years ago.
Meanwhile, the stock price for The Madison Square Garden Co. reached an all-time high Monday, and Lin is being credited as a key reason for the success.

According to The Associated Press, the Red Sox and Cubs have both submitted written arguments to the MLB Commissioner's Office regarding the compensation that the Sox will receive for the departure of former GM Theo Epstein, who left Boston in October to become president of baseball operations of the Cubs. The matter is now up to Commissioner Bud Selig to decide.
The Red Sox have said on numerous occasions that there was an agreement with the Cubs that they would receive "significant" compensation for the departure of Epstein, whose resignation was accepted by the club in late-October. The Cubs, however, have cited the precedent of former Twins GM Andy MacPhail becoming president of the Cubs in the 1990s, when the compensation was a marginal Single-A prospect (Hector Trinidad) and money.
There is no timetable for Selig to resolve the matter, according to...

According to major league sources, the Red Sox never made a foral offer to outfielder Yoenis Cespedes before the free agent signed a four-year, $36 million deal with the Athletics. The team did remain in talks with the 26-year-old's representatives throughout his free agency, and Cespedes was brought into the team's academy in the Dominican Republic for a workout in front of team officials in November, but the Sox were only interested in a deal that would have been at a lower average annual value than what materialized; as such, there was never an apparent fit between the Sox and the highly regarded talent from Cuba.
Cespedes is tied for the all-time single-season home run record in Cuba and has what is described as enormous raw power. Still, given the challenge of adapting to a more advanced professional league, the Sox felt that he would require some time in the...
