Patriots fans at training camp just saw a glimpse of the intensity with which Tom Brady practices. After a pass intended for WR Malcolm Mitchell in 7-on-7 passing drills was swatted away by a staffer with a paddle, Brady ripped his helmet off with two hands and spiked it into the ground as the ear pads in the helmet popped out.

After a rainy morning that led to a brief delay at the PGA Championship, it's now sunny and warm with a slight breeze at Baltusrol. Should remain that way throughout the day, with softer conditions better for scoring.

Brad Keselowski, who wrecked at Watkins Glen this week, said he always has considered road courses as the most dangerous places. "Odds are that if 100 people take that hit, one or two are not going to be standing here anymore," he said. He wishes there was not as long a runoff area at places such as Watkins Glen but understands the need because track is used for many amateur racers who don't want to wreck a car with a minor spin where they can stop in the runoff area.

The Marlins need rotation help, but Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea project as just minor upgrades the rest of the way. The cost is 19-year-old first baseman Josh Naylor, last year's first-round pick. A good upside play for the Padres for an impending free agent and a No. 5-type starter.
