The Cordish Cos., known for pairing urban-style entertainment districts with sports venues, will work with the San Francisco Giants to build a $1.6 billion waterfront development near the club's ballpark and is planning three more sports-anchored projects in Las Vegas, Portland, Ore., and St. Louis. The Baltimore-based developer of Power Plant Live at the Inner Harbor and the Maryland Live Casino at Arundel Mills mall is seeing a burst of activity in sports-themed mixed-use development.

The Orioles have agreed to minor league deals with right-handed pitchers Kyler Newby and Jon Link and outfielders Antoan Richardson and Lee Cruz. A former 50th round draft pick, Newby, 26, spent the past seven seasons in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. Last season, he was 8-2 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 games (nine starts) at Double-A Mobile and then 2-3 with a 5.03 ERA in 13 games (seven starts) for Triple-A Reno in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound righty has struck out 477 batters and walked 161 in his career.

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters knows the San Francisco Giants' Buster Posey well. They competed against each other in the Atlantic Coast Conference, as Wieters went to Georgia Tech and Posey starred at Florida State. They attended the Johnny Bench ceremony together as two of the nominees for the nation's top catcher award. They were both drafted fifth overall, one year apart, and made their major league debuts amid enormous expectations. So Wieters' initial reaction when he saw highlights of Wednesday's collision at home plate between Posey and the Florida Marlins' Scott Cousins, which resulted in the Giants' backstop suffering a fractured bone in his left leg and sustaining ligament damage in his ankle — injuries that may end his season — was one of empathy.

Jeremy Accardo officially signed with the Orioles on Dec. 17, though in his mind, where he would pitch in 2011 became a formality two weeks earlier. That's when Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail and manager Buck Showalter called Accardo while they were at baseball's winter meetings and told the reliever how much the club valued him. "The way they went about their business, they said they were going to be honest with me, 'This is what we're going to do, this is the way we see it,'" Accardo said.

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 expectations were such that Matt Wieters was supposed to have already played in an All-Star Game. The final month of his first full big league season was supposed to be about adding to already robust offensive numbers, not salvaging some positives to take into a long offseason. That kind of talk, which went into overdrive not long after Wieters made his major league debut May 29, 2009, was not realistic, and it was also quite unfair for a switch-hitting catcher learning his craft in the toughest division in baseball.

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. And I would love to make the cut in a men's tournament.
