Yankees' Andrew Miller, UNC alum, on NCAA title game, basketball memories

Andrew Miller grew up in Gainesville, Fla., loving the Florida Gators, but he's been bleeding Tar Heel blue since starring at UNC in baseball from 2004-06.

Matt Harvey getting amped before Opening Night

Matt Harvey calls it an “out-of-body experience,” though he’s not quite sure that’s exactly right either. Regardless of the precise sensation, the point he’s trying to make is clear.
