Dane Sanzebacher has emerged as a dependable receiver for Jay Cutler over the last two weeks. The undrafted receiver from Ohio State has taken advantage of the playing time he has earned.

Injuries to Earl Bennett and Roy Williams have allowed Sanzenbacher to get on the field.

Sanzenbacher has been very consistent in this group of disappointing wide receivers. Devin Hester and Johnny Knox have had their moments, but have struggled too much to be called consistent.

Some of that might have to do with Jay Cutler’s throws, but they need to hang on to balls when they come their way.

Roy Williams, the other known receiver on the roster right now has struggled since his four catch, 55 yard performance in Week One against the Falcons. Williams has dealt with a groin injury and isn’t up to speed with Jay Cutler and the offense.

NFL Network analyst, Joe Theismann is no fan of Bears WR Roy Williams. Theismann talked on NFL Network’s No Huddle last night and discussed Roy Williams struggles with the Bears.

“Roy Williams will never be a quality receiver in the National Football League because he doesn’t have what it takes,” said Theismann.

“And, Roy, if you’re listening, I’m saying it right to you. You have to make a decision that you want to play football as a professional, not as somebody who’s entitled. … The Chicago Bears — the wide receiving corps is non-existent.”

Roy Williams talked after Sunday’s game and he had some complaining to do.

“I’m good to play, it’s just sitting on the sidelines sometimes, especially in the Chicago weather where it’s chilly, not as hot … I just have to keep that thing warm,” Williams said. “That’s why I get on the bike.

Another season has come to an end for our beloved New York Mets. That means another season without a World Series ring, or post-season appearance, or even a reason to believe after the All-Star break. Unfortunately, it also means another season without Mets ownership showing Mike Piazza the level of appreciation Mets fans know is long overdue – retiring his number.

Fans of my generation associate one person with the Mets teams we came of age rooting for – Mike Piazza. Clearly the Mets recognize the importance Piazza played in re-energizing the fan base in the late 90’s and early 00’s, as Piazza helped to renew enough interest (see: generate revenue) that the Mets could build and move into their new home. He was there on the closing day of Shea Stadium and the opening day of Citi Field, catching the ceremonial first pitch in both instances from Tom Seaver.

Hey guys!  What did you do today?  I went to work, came home, did some laundry, just HUNG OUT.  In no way shape or form was I stressed out or excited or peeing down the inside of my leg.  Nope, just a regular old normal night at home.  No big deal.  That’s just how I do things.  Pretty simple.  NO DRAMA.  larussa_2

Was there baseball played tonight?  Oh really???  There was?  What a strange happenstance!  I had no idea.  I was just so busy doing totally normal and boring things that it must have slipped my mind. 

Say what?  Carpenter pitched a complete game shut out? Had eleven strike outs?  Well, by golly, that must have been something.  Surely it didn’t mean anything this late in the season.  GOOD FOR HIM!

Sorry about no posts for so long – family illness got in between me and my baseball games.

I see that Lance Berkman, naturally, managed to make sure that Wandy did not end the year with a winning record so that the 2011 Astros could boast that no starting pitcher ended the year with a winning record.

And tonight, Astros had the chance to knock the Cards out of the playoffs – at the very least, force a playoff with Atlanta. So naturally, Mr Starting Pitcher gives up 5 runs in the first inning. Naturally, Uncle drives in the first run.  Chris Carpenter, who ain’t what he used to be, but still pitched very well this year, jumped all OVAH that lead like a starving Dog on a pile of burgers.
