TODAY'S THOUGHT

We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano will undergo surgery for a persistent leg injury that knocked him out for six weeks during the season. Sano's injury was initially diagnosed as a stress reaction, and he was sidelined during the team's drive to a wild-card playoff spot. The 24-year-old Sano came back for the final regular-season series but wasn't put on the team's postseason roster.
 
     The team announced today that Sano and the team had decided surgery was the best course, and he was scheduled to undergo a procedure on Nov. 13 in New York. Sano hit .264 with 28 home runs in 114 games.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will be placed on injured reserve. Colts general manager Chris Ballard made the announcement today. Luck was "shut down" three weeks ago after complaining of soreness in his surgically repaired throwing shoulder.
 
     After the January surgery, he missed all of the team's offseason workouts, all of training camp and the entire preseason. Luck threw to teammates every other day for two weeks starting in early October, but he stopped Oct. 18 after receiving a cortisone shot.
 
     Jacoby Brissett remains the starter in Luck's absence.

     EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills visit the New York Jets in the NFL's Thursday night game. The 5-2 Bills are a half-game behind New England for first place in the AFC East. If they can beat the 3-5 Jets, Buffalo would clinch its best first half to a season since the 1993 squad with Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas and Bruce Smith opened 7-1 and made it to last of the franchise's four straight Super Bowls.
 
     The Bills' two losses this season have been by a combined 10 points: 9-3 at Carolina and 20-16 vs. Cincinnati. Buffalo also has yet to trail by more than seven points.
 
     The Jets have sputtered lately with three consecutive losses following a three-game winning streak.

     NEW YORK (AP) - UConn is No. 1 in The Associated Press women's basketball preseason poll for the 12th time in the school's history. The Huskies, who saw their 111-game winning streak come to an end in the Final Four last season, return four starters from that team and add a stellar freshman class to go along with two solid transfers. The entire 32-member national media panel picked UConn first.
 
     Texas is second, Big 12 rival Baylor is third followed by defending national champion South Carolina and Ohio State. Notre Dame, Mississippi State, UCLA, Louisville and Stanford round out the first 10.

     UNDATED (AP) - Outfielder Justin Upton is staying with the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels say their late-season trade acquisition has agreed to a new five-year, $106 million contract.
 
     Upton was owed $88.5 million over the next four seasons as part of a $132.75 million, six-year deal he signed with the Detroit Tigers. The Angels acquired him on Aug. 31. Upton had the right to opt out of that deal for free agency after the World Series. With a new contract that supersedes his old deal, Upton decided to stay.
 
     Upton had career-highs of 35 homers and 109 RBIs last season, and he is a Gold Glove finalist in left field. He fits ideally in the Angels' outfielder alongside Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun.
 
     In other MLB news:
 
     - The Boston Red Sox have hired Tony La Russa to serve as a vice president and special assistant on its baseball operations staff. In his new role, he'll work under Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski in all areas of baseball operations, including player development and consultation with the major and minor league staffs.
 
     - The Detroit Tigers are adding Chris Bosio as their pitching coach and keeping Lloyd McClendon as hitting coach. Bosio spent the previous six seasons as pitching coach for the Chicago Cubs. New manager Ron Gardenhire is also keeping Dave Clark as third base coach. Rick Anderson will be the team's bullpen coach, Phil Clark an assistant hitting coach, Steve Liddle the bench coach, Ramon Santiago the first base coach and Joe Vavra a quality control coach.
 
     - Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo introduced new manager Dave Martinez Thursday at a news conference at Nationals Park, calling the first-time manager a "perfect blend of the old school" with the use of analytical statistics. Martinez has been a bench coach in the big leagues for a decade, most recently with the Chicago Cubs. He also played 16 years in the majors.
 
     - Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano will undergo surgery for a persistent leg injury that knocked him out for six weeks during the season. Sano's injury was initially diagnosed as a stress reaction, and he was sidelined during the team's drive to a wild-card playoff spot.

     - A sports agent and a baseball trainer convicted of illegally smuggling Cuban players into the U.S. have been sentenced to prison. A Miami federal judge on Thursday sentenced agent Bartolo Hernandez to just under four years behind bars and trainer Julio Estrada to a little more than five years. Hernandez and Estrada were convicted by a jury in March.
 
     - The Seattle Mariners have declined 2018 contract options on right-handed pitchers Hisashi Iwakuma and Yovani Gallardo, making both free agents. Seattle made the option decisions Thursday while also claiming utility man Andrew Romine off waivers from Detroit. Seattle also reinstated pitchers David Phelps and Drew Smyly from the 60-day DL. The Mariners have 35 players on their 40-man roster.
