What will Tiger Woods do all day? Well, even as a vice captain, he cannot give advice to players. The Rules of Golf only allow for advice from the caddie, or in a team event, your partner or partner's caddie. At the Ryder Cup, captain's Davis Love III and Darren Clarke can also give advice, and typically they rely on info from their assistants to pass on info.

Phil Jackson got involved in Thursday's scrimmage after a sloppy sequence. "He got mad at us one time because we was running the offense and we didn't throw the ball into the post," Derrick Rose said. "He came over, kind of grumpy a little bit. That was my first time ever seeing him like that."

Duke (like many schools) will hold its first official practice today. Freshman Harry Giles has been brought along slowly and that will continue to be the plan as he recovers from a torn ACL suffered in the first game of his senior season in high school at Oak Hill Academy. Giles still on track to play in the season-opener on Nov. 11. "I'm definitely confident," Giles said of playing in the opener.

With 10 strikeouts so far through six innings, Johnny Cueto becomes the third straight Giants starter to record 10+ K's -- the first time they've done that since 1975. More importantly, the game is 2-2. Win, and the Giants remain a game up on the Cardinals; lose and they're tied as the Dodgers come to San Fran for the final series.

Mariners tied 1-1 with Oakland in sixth inning of pretty much a must-win game. After Baltimore beat Toronto, Seattle is currently down 2 1/2 games in wild card race and a loss tonight would mean they would have to go 3-0 and hope Blue Jays or O's go 0-3 rest of way to tie. Oh, and Tigers would have to lose some as well.
