TODAY'S THOUGHT

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

Byron Buxton has earned the American League Player of the Week honors....

    MINNEAPOLIS - Byron Buxton has earned the American League Player of the Week honors. The Twins center fielder had five home runs -- three of them in Sunday's victory in Toronto -- and 10 RBI, hitting .333 and slugging .818 last week.

    After a very slow strikeout-marred start to the season, Buxton has raised his batting average to .249 and his 13 home runs are fifth on the team. He also leads the Twins with 24 stolen bases.

    Minnesota has the day off today before beginning a three-game home series against the Chicago White Sox.

     UNDATED (AP) - Hurricane Harvey is playing havoc with professional sports schedules.
 
     For one thing, the Houston Astros have learned they're going to be spending a long time away from home.
 
     The Astros will play their next two series at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, because of flooding from Hurricane Harvey. That's according to a person with knowledge of the decision, who spoke to The Associated Press on Monday.
 
     That away-from-home schedule change includes a three-game series beginning Tuesday against the Texas Rangers and a three-game series against the New York Mets, which starts on Friday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced by the teams or by Major League Baseball.
 
     Both the Astros and Rangers flew to Dallas after their games in California on Sunday to await news of where the series would be held. They will now head to Florida, where the Astros will host "home" games far away from home, just like they did in the wake of Hurricane Ike in 2008 when they played two scheduled home games in Milwaukee.
 
     The Houston Texans of the National Football League are also in the Dallas area, awaiting word on where their scheduled home preseason game against the Cowboys on Thursday will be played. Both LSU and BYU are keeping close watch, with the two teams scheduled to play each other Saturday at the home of the Texans.

     FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU coach Gary Patterson says the Horned Frogs will do whatever they can to help the displaced Rice Owls. The Rice team was scheduled to arrive in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Monday after traveling from Australia, where they started their season over the weekend with a 62-7 loss to 14th-ranked Stanford. Patterson says there are still specifics to work out to host Rice on the Fort Worth campus while the Houston area deals with severe flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

     FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - University of Texas football coach Tom Herman says he hasn't seen any of his former Houston players yet, but figures that will change when the Cougars make their way to the Austin campus to resume practice Monday afternoon. Houston's team went to Austin on Friday, ahead of Hurricane Harvey's landfall, and practiced there Saturday. Herman spent the past two seasons at Houston and is now in his first season with the Longhorns. He says Texas will try to do anything it can to help the Cougars.

     OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - Baltimore Ravens linebacker Albert McClellan is out for the season after sustaining a knee injury in practice last week. Coach John Harbaugh says McClellan tore his ACL. McClellan played in all 16 games last season, starting 11, and finished with 52 tackles. He is the eighth Baltimore player to suffer a season-ending injury this summer.

     ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the diagnosis says Broncos backup quarterback Paxton Lynch will miss several weeks with a sprained right shoulder. Lynch's injury leaves Denver in a quarterback quandary beginning with Thursday night's preseason finale against Arizona. The only other available QB aside from starter Trevor Siemian is undrafted rookie Kyle Sloter.
