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.

Giants' Pierce to talk with investigators nfl Antonio Pierce and the doctor who treated his New York Giants teammate Plaxico Burress after he accidentally shot himself at a Manhattan nightclub will talk to investigators today. Pierce and Josyann Abisaab will be accompanied by their lawyers, NYPD Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Paul Browne said. It is unclear when and where the parties will meet. The authorities are especially interested in why neither Pierce, who drove Burress to the hospital, nor Abisaab called police to report the shooting early Saturday.

When you think of San Francisco Giants all-time greats, the usual suspects come to mind: Willie Mays, Barry Bonds, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal. Rod Beck might not even make your A list. But for anyone who covered the Giants in the 1990s, Beck would be right near the top. An all-time, larger-than-life, heart-of-gold great. Beck was found dead in his Arizona home over the weekend. He was 38, far younger than many of the current Giants and much, much too young to die. It seems odd that he was still so young, because he was such a throwback.

"I'm not saying Phil Mickelson is getting a little plump, but I think I saw him marking his ball with a Junior Mint at the U.S. Open." Mike Bianchi Orlando Sentinel columnist "The Giants celebrated the 1982 season, which is when their best current players were in their primes." Tim Kawakami San Jose Mercury News columnist, on the San Francisco Giants' turn-back-the-clock night "I would love to win an LPGA major or a tournament.

Now that the San Francisco Giants have swept the Los Angeles Dodgers and shocked the National League West by climbing back to the top of the standings, the only question is whether they really are good enough to stay there. No one really knows, of course, but manager Felipe Alou said he thinks that his team's quick and impressive recovery is an indication that the Giants have a legitimate chance to get back to the postseason. "If the club is good enough to get out of the hole we were in, it should be good enough to stay out," Alou said.

The Bay Area rivalry between the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants has gotten personal, and it bears a hint of the animosity that has developed in Washington over the Orioles' reluctance to endorse a second team in the region. The A's would like to have the option of building a new ballpark in the South Bay suburb of Santa Clara, but the Giants insist that they own territorial rights to the area and do not want any competition for the affluent fans that come into the city to attend games at SBC Park.

San Francisco Giants vs. Florida Marlins Starting lineup Barry Bonds is the heart and soul of the Giants' lineup, and he will be the preoccupation of every pitcher who faces the Giants in the postseason. But the fundamental nature of their lineup changed dramatically when power-hitting second baseman Jeff Kent left as a free agent last winter. The new Giants may be less potent at the heart of the lineup, yet they're far more balanced from top to bottom. Bonds missed nearly a quarter of the season for various reasons, which is reflected in a significant drop in his RBI total, but nine Giants hit at least 10 home runs, and the club won more games without Kent than in any season with him. The Marlins actually scored more runs than the Giants, but they lost big gun Mike Lowell late in the season and may not have him full time in the first round.
