Found April 27, 2013 on Fox Sports:
It was a Freaky Friday for Mark Sanchez , as the Jets QB had flashbacks of last spring, when a big-name QB was headed to town to take his job. Last year it was Tim Tebow. This year it's Geno Smith, the equally enigmatic QB whom the Jets drafted with the 39th pick , setting off a storm of sentiment that Sanchez is headed out of New York . The mock tweets were flowing soon after the Jets picked Geno . Tebow just watched with his helmet off. RT @ adam_jacobi : Mark Sanchez just threw his remote at the TV and missed by 7 feet. -- Bruce Arthur (@bruce_arthur) April 26, 2013 Poor, poor Mark Sanchez (OK, so he's not poor. He's filthy rich). Things were bad enough, coming off the worst season of his four-year career, dealing with competition from noodle-armed Tebow -- and the circus that followed -- and ultimately losing his job to rookie Greg McElroy. Then Sanchez saw his team sign veteran QB David Garrard, who hasn't played since 2010. Man, those back-to-back AFC Ch...

Geno Smith is heading to New York, and Mark Sanchez may be on his way out. The Jets added another high-profile quarterback Friday, drafting the West Virginia standout Smith in the second round.

Report: Jets Will Keep Mark Sanchez Into The Preseason

Just as I thought I could discontinue referring to the New York Jets as a mess, I believe John Idzik has a little bit of Mike Tannenbaum in him, and enjoys the circus atmosphere. Bob Glauber of Newsday is reporting that according to a source close to the situation, the Jets will hold on to Mark Sanchez until the preseason at least. League source: #Jets expected to retain QB Mark...

Why your team sucks: The New York Jets

Mark Sanchez will remain the quarterback of the New York Jets for the immediate future, and a coming back from injury Santonio Holmes remains his only ‘weapon’ on offense. Granted there are still 6 rounds remaining in the 2013 NFL Draft, but with the lack of talent depth in it, the Jets wasted an opportunity to try to bring in a playmaker offensively to help out the offense....

Friday was either a very good day or a very, very bad day to be named Sanchez in the sports world, as Sanchez stars from New York to Detroit to St. Louis had some of the best and worst evenings in the history of professional athletics.

Report: Jets Considering Releasing Mark Sanchez After Drafting Geno Smith

The economics of such a move would mean the Jets would be carrying a lot of dead money for a couple of years. With that being said, if they want to have a fresh start, they have to get rid of some of their quarterbacks. If they believe Geno is indeed the man, having Sanchez on the roster is only going to make the Jets a bigger circus than they already are. It will be interesting...

First place is on the line ... in April

After a nice start to their ten-game road trip, the Pirates are now entering the portion of the trip that I'm most interested in: six games in St. Louis and Milwaukee. The division has a new shape this year without the Astros in it and how the Pirates play the NL Central teams is going to go a long ways towards deciding how 2013 shakes out for the Pirates.  Plus if the Pirates...
