Suzuki talks hit No. 3,000, Pete Rose and retirement

As he nears 3,000 hits, Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki sat down to talk about Pete Rose -- too defensive -- and Lou Piniella -- too affectionate. Oh, and another 200-hit season? Totally doable.

The grouping of Jordan Spieth (-4), Bubba Watson (-1) and Sergio Garcia (+4) has just been warned that they are a full hole behind the group ahead of them at the PGA. It's interesting to note how often time warnings are blamed, after the fact, by Tour players, when discussing where their rounds turned bad. With three holes left to play for the group, it's worth keeping an eye on.

Here's a twist to Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy trade talks: Lucroy's contract includes a limited no-trade clause that allows him to block deals to the Indians, Tigers, Angels, Nationals, Twins, Athletics, Padres and Mariners. Cleveland is the most noteworthy team on that list. The provision in Lucroy's contract doesn't preclude a trade, but it's an additional obstacle the Indians would have to surmount.

New Saints WR Hakeem Nicks admitted that he was texting Sean Payton every week since his spring visit. Nicks said he's had to fight injuries in his career, including last year with Titans. But he said that just adds to the chip in his shoulder. Also said he's taken time to try and "learn the business," study offenses and try to figure out why he had most of his success early in his career with Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

Following his opening round at the PGA Championship, Jordan Spieth last night talked at length about the course's bumpy poa annua greens, a strain of grass that typically gets worse as the day goes on. Still, as Spieth noted, he was only five back, and today "we get fresh greens… If I can post something like four or five tomorrow, we're definitely back in the thick of things." Prophetic!

It is becoming increasingly clear that some decision-makers in the organization look at trading Beltran as essentially waving the white flag.

The eagle got him back to even par for his round and -3 for the tournament, two strokes behind leader Jimmy Walker. Stenson had bogeyed the 12th and 13th holes. He now heads to the first nine.
