Zac Gallen aims to make his mark

Zac Gallen was one of two players — along with junior Adam Pate — that coach Mike Fox named a team captain for this season. Fox has never had captains in 17 seasons as UNC’s coach, but he knew the team needed a change.

Showdown Series: No. 16 UNC at No. 11 UCLA

There is just one series this weekend that pits a pair of Top 25 teams against each other: No. 16 North Carolina at No. 11 UCLA.

Matt Harvey arrived early to Mets spring training Monday in style — driving a pulsating Maserati GranTurismo. The big right-hander knows style and pitching. And he knows money.

Q&A with Mike Fox

You’ve been coaching for more than 30 years. What aspects of coaching keep you fresh and engaged? The kids. Being around 18- to 22-yearolds every day keeps you on your toes! This generation is a challenge, but a fun one. You have to learn how to connect with them, get in their world, earn their respect and, most importantly, show them you care. (Winston-Salem Journal)

UNC's Run Production Critical for Diamond Heels in '16

UNC’s 13-year streak as a NCAA Tournament staple came to an end last May due in large part to its inability to manufacture runs at critical times.

How Andrew Miller is handling no longer being Yankees' closer

Andrew Miller is ready to hand the title “Yankees closer” to Aroldis Chapman for a more undefined bullpen role. But the switch won’t mean uncharted territory for the veteran lefty. “It wasn’t that long go that I did long-guy one day and I’d get an out in a tie game in the eighth inning the next day,” Miller said Tuesday at the annual Thurman Munson dinner.

Video: Matt Harvey on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers'

Heroes are defined by their villains. If not for the Joker, Batman would just be a dude LARPing around Gotham in the middle of the night. So, Matt Harvey went on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday night and answered the question all of New York -- and MLB, for that matter -- has been asking itself since the Mets' ace was christened the Dark Knight. (MLB.com)

Andrew Miller doesn't care he is no longer the closer, wants to win

In Andrew Miller's words, he pitched "as well as he possibly could have" in his first year as a closer for the Yankees in 2015. He had 36 saves and a 2.04 ERA. Now, he is no longer the closer. A lot of guys would be upset. Not Miller. "I came to New York to be a winner," Miller said on the Michael Kay Show on 98.7 ESPN. (ESPN.com)
