Happ to open for Jays

DUNEDIN, Fla.—J.A. Happ will be the Toronto Blue Jays' opening-day starter this season.

The veteran left-hander will pitch against the N.Y. Yankees next Thursday at Rogers Centre.

He will face a Yankees' lineup that could see Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez hit 2-3-4.

It will be the first time in his 10-year career that Happ will start opening day.

'March Madness' really amps up

One word succinctly describes what's transpired so far in the NCAA Tournament: madness.

But even that's probably under-selling it.

A comeback for the ages by Nevada. An entire region left without a top four seed in the “Sweet 16” for the first time in tourney history.

The 16-seed winner UMBC falling short in its attempt to extend its historic run as underdog darlings.
