Martin back at Brier as Alberta coach

ST. JOHN'S, N.L.—You can excuse curling fans for doing a double-take at the Tim Hortons Brier.

Legendary skip Kevin Martin is sporting familiar Alberta colours at the national men's curling championship this week at Mile One Centre.

The 2010 Olympic champion is back at the Brier to coach his son, Karrick, and the provincial team skipped by Brendan Bottcher.

Stroman strong so far

DUNEDIN, Fla.—Marcus Stroman is all warmed up for the World Baseball Classic.

The Toronto right-hander allowed his lone spring training run during a 2 2/3-inning outing yesterday in the Blue Jays' 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.

“I felt great," Stroman said. "Got to a mix of all my pitches, work on tempo and delivery.”
