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.

     NEW YORK (AP) - Houston manager A.J. Hinch has picked Lance McCullers Jr. over Brad Peacock to pitch against Yankees right-hander Sonny Gray in Game 4, with the Astros leading the series 2-1.
 
     McCullers, an All-Star in July, finished 7-4 with a 4.25 ERA but hasn't started since Sept. 30 or won since June 24. McCullers was sidelined from July 31 to Sept. 6, his second stint on the disabled list this year due to lower back discomfort, but made his first career relief appearance against the Red Sox in the Division Series.
 
     Hinch says McCullers "has some of the best stuff in the big leagues and we believe in him."
 
     Meanwhile, Yankees Manager Joe Girardi says Austin Romine will catch the right-hander Gray, with regular backstop Gary Sanchez moving to designated hitter. Romine is New York's best receiver. Sanchez tied for the major league lead with 16 passed balls in the regular season, and Gray's big curveball can be difficult to block.
 
     Game 4 gets started in New York at 5:08 p.m. Eastern Time.

     CHICAGO (AP) - Kyle Hendricks is set to pitch for the Cubs, who are trying to overcome a 2-0 deficit against the Dodgers in their NL Championship Series. Hendricks finished the regular season with a 2.19 ERA over his final 13 starts and opened the playoffs with seven scoreless innings against the Nationals.
 
     The Professor, from Dartmouth, has been overpowering at times despite a fastball that averaged just 86.6 mph, third-slowest among pitchers with at least 100 innings this year.
 
     Yu Darvish gets the nod for Los Angeles. The Japanese right-hander tweaked his mechanics after being acquired from Texas in a trade deadline deal, and he's been dominant with a 98 mph heater this fall. He pitched one-run ball and struck out seven over five innings in NLDS Game 3 against Arizona.
 
     Game time is 9:08 p.m. Eastern Time.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The NBA's 72nd regular season starts tonight, when Boston heads to Cleveland and Houston goes to Golden State. Fans in Cleveland will boo Kyrie Irving, fans in Oakland will cheer the Warriors' latest championship banner and the march toward April will finally be underway.
 
     The offseason was loaded with changes. Carmelo Anthony and Paul George went to Oklahoma City, Gordon Hayward and Irving went to Boston, Isaiah Thomas got sent to Cleveland, Jimmy Butler is now in Minnesota and Paul Millsap calls Denver home. That's seven All-Stars who moved, a record for an NBA offseason.
 
     In Cleveland tonight, Irving's homecoming might not be so homey.  Irving spent six seasons with the Cavs, but asked to be traded this summer. His demand rankled many Cleveland fans. The Cavs granted his request and remodeled a team that went to three straight Finals with Irving.
 
     Meanwhile, LeBron James may miss Cleveland's opener because of a sprained left ankle. James injured his ankle in practice last month and played in just one exhibition game. He did participate in the team's morning shoot-around, though, and a team spokesman says it will be a game-time decision.
 
     Every coach who started last season will start this season. That's an NBA first.

     NEW YORK (AP) - NFL players and owners have met to discuss social issues, a session Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross calls "constructive."
 
     A group of 11 owners and more than a dozen players met at the league's headquarters before the annual fall owners meetings began. Among the topics discussed was enhancing the players' platforms for speaking out on social issues. Ross said NFL's policy on the national anthem did not come up.
 
     The players' union and the league issued a joint statement saying the meeting focused on how the two sides "can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality in our communities." They add, "everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military. In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change."
 
     Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was confronted by two protesters before the meetings. He listened as they shouted at him about white supremacy. Jones said nothing. The protesters were peacefully led away.
 
     Also, Black Lives Matters of New York held a rally outside of the hotel in support of Colin Kaepernick.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - Attorneys for Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott and NFL lawyers are set for an emergency hearing in federal court in New York on the running back's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations. The hearing comes ahead of what Elliott's attorneys say is a 4 p.m. Eastern deadline for active rosters to be set for the Cowboys' game Sunday at San Francisco.
 
     - The New York Giants have ended their suspension of veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for insubordination. Team officials say Rodgers-Cromartie was reinstated to the active roster after missing the game against Denver on Sunday night. The 31-year-old veteran was suspended for leaving the team facility before practice last week. He also left the bench then returned in the second half of the Giants' loss to the Chargers.
 
     - The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with kicker Jason Myers, waiving him two days after he hooked two 54-yard field goals in a loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The Jaguars replaced him with free agent Josh Lambo. Lambo made 54 of 64 field goals (81.2 percent) and 70 of 78 extra points (89.7 percent) in two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers cut Lambo in September.
