Teammate Placido Polanco, Giants pitcher Ramon Ramirez and Giants catcher Eli Whiteside were all fined undisclosed sums.

Here’s what we learned from the weekend’s tournament of champions in which the Red Sox took two of three from the Yankees and the Phillies beat the Giants three out of four:  1. I’ll take the Big Three, you can have The Field.  Remember when the Orioles were the early flavor of the month in April by starting 6-1?
