TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

- Michael Youssef

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Timberwolves open their 29th season of basketball tonight at the San Antonio Spurs at 8:30 pm CT. With Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson teaming back up with Coach Tom Thibodeau, the team signing Jeff Teague and Jamal Crawford, along with already having two of the best young talents with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, the goals in Minnesota are lofty.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have told left-hander Glen Perkins they will decline their $6.5 million option on his contract for 2018 and pay him a $700,000 buyout. The Twins announced the decision today, moving Perkins closer to retirement.
 
     The 34-year-old three-time All-Star will become a free agent able to sign with any team, including the Twins, but he has said he's not interested in pitching elsewhere. Perkins played at Stillwater High School outside the Twin Cities and the University of Minnesota before the Twins drafted him in the first round in 2004.
 
     With 120 saves, Perkins is third on the franchise's all-time list. He pitched in only 10 games the last two seasons because of shoulder trouble. Perkins returned in August from an arduous rehabilitation over a 16-month absence.

     NEW YORK (AP) - With the AL Championship Series tied at two games apiece, Dallas Keuchel pitches for the Houston Astros against Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees this evening.
 
     Keuchel is 6-2 with a 1.09 ERA in eight career starts vs. the Yankees, including a pair of scoreless playoff outings. The 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner tossed seven shutout innings and struck out 10 to beat Tanaka 2-1 in Game 1 at Houston. The left-hander has never given up a home run in 57 2/3 innings against the Yankees. "Hopefully, seeing him twice in one series, our guys are able to adjust a little quicker," New York manager Joe Girardi says.
 
     The winner heads to Houston needing one win to reach the World Series, so Yankee Stadium figures to be rocking again. "Every home game has been special," Girardi says. He adds the fans are back, and it reminds him "a lot" of his pIaying days at Yankee Stadium. The wild-card Yankees are 5-0 at home this postseason.
 
     AL Game 5: Houston at New York, 5:08 p.m.

     CHICAGO (AP) - One win from their first World Series appearance in 29 years, the Los Angeles Dodgers go for a four-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Championship Series at Wrigley Field this evening.
 
     Los Angeles is 6-0 in this postseason, setting a franchise record for consecutive playoff victories. Another one would give the storied franchise its 22nd pennant. The Dodgers' only four-game postseason sweep came in the 1963 World Series against the New York Yankees.
 
     It's a matchup of well-rested pitchers. The Dodgers send left-hander Alex Wood against Cubs righty Jake Arrieta.
 
     Wood, who had a career-high 16 wins this season, will make his first appearance since Sept. 26. He was lined up for Game 4 of the Division Series, but the Dodgers swept the Diamondbacks in three straight."It has its pluses and negatives," Wood said of the layoff. "I've stayed on a semi-regular schedule. I've had two (simulated) games in between against a lot of our regular guys in our lineup."
 
     Arrieta has pitched just 14 1/3 innings since Aug. 30, including four innings of two-hit ball against Washington in Game 4 of the NLDS. The 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner was hampered by a right hamstring injury at the end of the season.
 
     "I think the leg issue is pretty much behind us," he said.
 
     Arrieta can become a free agent after the World Series, so this could be his final start for the Cubs.
 
     Game time for Game 4 is 9:08 p.m. Eastern.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL is not changing its national anthem policy to require players to stand during the national anthem.
 
     Commissioner Roger Goodell and several owners said Tuesday at the league's fall meetings that altering the language from "should stand" to "must stand" was not discussed.
 
     New York Giants owner John Mara noted that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones "spoke at length" to the other owners about the anthem issue. Jones has said any Dallas player who doesn't stand for the "Star-Spangled Banner" would not be playing.
 
     Goodell reiterated that the league and its 32 clubs "believe everyone should stand for the national anthem. It's an important part of the game."
 
     Asked about owners who threatened discipline for players who didn't stand, Goodell said the owners didn't discuss it.
 
     Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump again blasted the NFL over the issue, tweeting "Total disrespect for our great country!"
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - The NFL draft is headed for AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys. They'll host the 2018 draft in April. After decades in New York, the draft was moved to Chicago in 2015 and was held there again in 2016. It drew huge crowds, whetting the NFL's appetite for taking bids to host it. Last year, the draft was in Philadelphia at the iconic Art Museum steps. It drew 250,000 fans for the first draft held outdoors.
 
     - The Washington Redskins have put kicker Dustin Hopkins on injured reserve with a strained hip muscle and signed free agent Nick Rose to replace him. Rose's NFL debut will come Monday night in Washington's game at the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles. He played college football at Texas and has spent time with the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers, though he did not make a regular-season roster with either club.
 
     - The winless Browns have reinstated rookie DeShone Kizer as their starting quarterback for this week's game against Tennessee. The Browns demoted an ineffective Kizer last week in favor of Kevin Hogan, who had provided a spark in previous relief appearances but threw three interceptions in a 33-17 loss to the Houston Texans. Kizer had thrown an NFL-high nine interceptions - four in the red zone - in his first five games.
