    Jake Arrieta pitches for the Chicago Cubs.- CHICAGO -- Success was practically

    a hibernating Cubs offense.- Duke is the runaway No. 1 choice in the APs
    preseason mens college basketball poll. The Blue Devils are followed Kentucky,

    project.- BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron insists his teams

    communities. The games have started, but the work to make things better has not
    stopped.- CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It would be easy for Jimmie Johnson to focus only

    derring-do, the adrenaline, the speed, the glitz and the wealth all can be
    overtaken by the sports buffoonery.- SHANGHAI -- No one from Japan has more than

    million. Eleven races drawn at 4 p.m.; Distaff and Classic at 7 p.m.

    Scarpe Saucony Uomo . But Bourque,
    who has missed three games with a lower-body injury, wont be in the lineup when
    the Habs travel to Buffalo to take on the Sabres on Wednesday. TOKYO -- An
    expert panel set up by Tokyos newly elected governor says the price tag of the
    2020 Tokyo Olympics could exceed $30 billion unless drastic cost-cutting
    measures are taken. Thats more than a four-fold increase from the initial
    estimate at the time Tokyo was awarded the games in 2013.Following is a
    breakdown of the panels projected costs by category. Original bid estimates have
    been included when available.---NATIONAL STADIUMThe building of the new national
    stadium, which will host the opening and closing ceremonies and track and field,
    has been plagued by a series of problems. An earlier design by the late
    Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid had risen to $2.65 billion, more than twice
    the original forecast. The Japanese government decided to scrap that plan and,
    on Friday, approved a new stadium project totaling nearly $1.5 billion.
    Officials say construction will begin in December and be completed by November
    2019.---OLYMPIC VILLAGELocated on reclaimed land in Tokyo Bay, the panel
    estimates the cost at $954 million. The village is being built by a private
    consortium and will be rented during the games. The plan is to transform the
    village into a residential area after the games.---TEMPORARY VENUESOrganizers
    plan to build seven temporary venues for sports such as beach volleyball,
    triathlon and gymnastics. In July, the organizing committee acknowledged the
    cost of building those venues had surged to an estimated $2.6 billion, up from
    an initiaal estimate of $800 million.dddddddddddd---PERMANENT VENUESTokyo plans
    to build seven new permanent venues to go along with 19 existing venues. The
    panel estimates the cost of the seven new permanent facilities at $2.24 billion.
    However, it has proposed using existing facilities for three sports --
    volleyball, swimming, rowing and canoe sprint -- instead of building new
    permanent venues. The canoeing venue could move to Tome City in Miyagi
    prefecture, about 440 kilometers (270 miles) northeast of Tokyo.---SOFT COSTS
    (security, transportation, operating fees, etc.)Based on estimates from the 2012
    London Olympics, the panel suggests these costs could be as much as $16 billion,
    including $2 billion for transportation, $3 billion for security, $6 billion for
    energy and technology, and $5 billion for operating costs.---OTHERThe breakdown
    does not take into consideration unforeseen costs. The panel said these could
    arise from earthquake prevention measures and the possibility that additional
    venues may be moved outside of Tokyo, increasing transportation and security
    costs. Tokyo organizers are also looking at measures to counter the extreme heat
    in Tokyo and the panel took those potential costs into consideration when it
    came up with the estimate of $30 billion.---TOTAL COST:Bid estimate: $7.3
