Aroldis Chapman, through an interpreter, called the Wednesday report that he wants to opt out of his Yankees contract after this year "completely false." He added: "the truth is, honestly, I feel great here." Says he has yet to speak to his agent about his current deal. He also added that he was aware that after next season the Yankees have an ability to change his contract, but reiterated he wants to stay in New York.

Kellerman: KD to the Nets is riskiest move of offseason (0:49)

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who died Tue. at 99, was a lifelong Cubs fan who said his first two trips to Wrigley Field were for Game 1 of the 1929 World Series (a 3-1 loss to the A's) and Game 3 in ‘32 — he said he thought Babe Ruth DID call his shot on his mythical home run that day (the Yankees won 7-5 on 2 HRs each by Ruth & Lou Gehrig). In 2005, he threw a ceremonial first pitch at Wrigley that he called "the highlight of my career." And he attended a Cubs World Series game in 2016. Another sports connection: in 2001, Stevens delivered the 7-2 majority opinion that resulted in Casey Martin being allowed to use a cart in a PGA tournament, because of a disability — he said the tour's walking rule was "at best peripheral" and "not an indispensable feature" of golf at any level.
