Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez had a severe case of the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy, researchers said, and his lawyer announced a lawsuit against the NFL and the team, accusing them of hiding the true dangers of the sport. Dr. Ann McKee, the director of the CTE Center at Boston University, said Hernandez had Stage 3 (out of 4) of the disease, which can cause violent mood swings, depression and other cognitive disorders . ''We're told it was the most severe case they had ever seen for someone of Aaron's age,'' attorney Jose Baez said.
Something must give when left-handers J.A. Happ and Jason Vargas oppose each other Thursday. It will be the rubber match of a three-game series at the Rogers Centre after the Kansas City Royals trounced the Toronto Blue Jays 15-5 on Wednesday to gain a split of the first two games. Vargas (16-10, 4.19 ERA) has won two starts in a row, most notably Friday, when he was the winning pitcher as the Royals ended the Cleveland Indians' 22-game winning streak.
