Terry Pluto asks an interesting question: “I ask myself who is having a good year other than Wimbley? Rogers made a bigger impact last season. He probably has just been above average, but not close to his Pro Bowl form. The other linemen and linebackers seem to care and hustle, but they don’t make big plays. Against the Packers, the Browns had one tackle for loss, one quarterback hit and no sacks. Unless the Browns improve against the run, they have no chance of even being respectable.” [Pluto/Cleveland PD]
Fantastic. Why Not: “Sabathia was picked MVP of the American League championship series after two dominant performances in the Yankees’ six-game victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The Yankees wrapped up the ALCS with a 5-2 victory in Game 6 Sunday night, meaning the 28-year-old Sabathia’s next start will be a tantalizing one — he’ll oppose former Cleveland teammate and Cy Young winner Cliff Lee when New York plays Philadelphia on Wednesday night in the first World Series game at the new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium.” [AP Story]
Meanwhile, we got Acta: “He’s the right guy for the job as long as everyone realizes he’s not coming in to win the division next year.” [Kurkjian/ESPN]
Acta’s first job, assembling a staff: “Getting a read on him and making a snap judgment about whether he’s the right man for the job borders on folly, but some clues about him and his strategies should begin to emerge with the first order of business – naming a coaching staff.” [Paul C./DiaTribe]
How about something positive. The Buckeyes looked decent this weekend at least: “Looks like everyone got what they wanted Saturday in OSU’s 38-7 walk over an inept Minnesota Saturday. The fans got to see Pryor take a step in the right direction with his second 200/100 game of his career.” [Jason/Eleven Warriors]
