World Series MVP Edgar Renteria (above right) appears stung that the Giants cut him. He has told reporters in his native Colombia he would like to finish his career with the Marlins, where he started, or the Cardinals. He could be a fit for the Cardinals, who are looking to upgrade their infield, but is probably looking at an incentive-laden deal after an injury-plagued 2010. … Look for relief pitchers to be among the first free agents to start taking contracts. Kerry Wood and J.J. Putz are among those drawing interest from a lot of teams, including the Cubs.

The Orioles are the front-runners to sign free-agent starter Russ Ortiz and a deal could happen as early as today, according to industry sources. "We're talking with them," said Ortiz's agent, John Boggs, adding that pitching coach Leo Mazzone carries "a lot of weight" with Ortiz. "I would say at this point, that they are probably the front-runner." The Arizona Diamondbacks released Ortiz last week after a season and a half of ineffectiveness. They still owe him $22 million on the four-year, $33 million deal he signed before last season.

SAN FRANCISCO - As long as his knee holds up, Barry Bonds believes there's "a good possibility" he could be taking swings with the San Francisco Giants when the club gets to Los Angeles next week. Bonds, recovering from three operations on his troublesome right knee since Jan. 31, began taking light batting practice this week with no problems. The slugger has been in Los Angeles for the past two months rehabbing his knee under the direction of orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum and physical therapist Clive Brewster.

The Washington Nationals are not only in first place, but also on pace to win nearly 100 games and have the fourth-best record in baseball. Those numbers smack of a runaway contender but for one odd fact - the Nationals have been outscored this season. Baseball history says you just don't win pennants, much less hit the century mark, on a foundation of nail-biting victories. "It's almost impossible to do what they've done," said Rob Neyer, an ESPN.com columnist and co-author of a book about baseball's greatest teams.

A few days ago, I asked Peter Magowan, owner of the San Francisco Giants, if he would consider building a statue in honor of Barry Bonds, the Giants' star left fielder, perhaps the greatest player of his generation. "I would like to think that one day there will be a statue of Barry here, and I think there should be," Magowan said. "He's the best player I've seen play the game since Willie; if you don't acknowledge the best player you ever saw, then why be in the market?" I had spent the first three days of the Giants' new season around SBC Park.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Orioles executive vice president Jim Beattie can hear the scoffs, and he isn't listening. The Orioles, despite all the additions they made this offseason, didn't do enough to address their pitching, critics say. They're all offense now. They've turned themselves into the Texas Rangers. "There are no parallels [between the Orioles and Texas]," Beattie said. "People say that because they don't know the names. They take comfort, generally, in someone that's established, and we couldn't add established players across the board."

SAN FRANCISCO - Anaheim Angels manager Mike Scioscia plotted his strategy through Game 5 of the World Series as if he never had a doubt his team was coming back, blissfully unaware the San Francisco Giants were about to turn in one of the biggest routs in Series history. The Angels have starting pitching concerns, and they faced an early six-run deficit, but Scioscia had seen his team do too much hitting this postseason to alter his best-laid plans. Before long, those decisions didn't look so foolhardy.

SAN FRANCISCO -- They are not Barry Bonds. There is only one of this species. Only one man on the planet could make opposing managers sweat through hours upon tedious hours of endless second-guessing: What do you do with Barry Bonds? The problem is, no matter what scheme a baseball manager could devise to attempt to thwart the greatest, most dangerous living offensive threat in baseball, the San Francisco Giants turned out to be a force not to be denied. The St. Louis Cardinals found that out last night.
