Steelers wax Browns in preparation for playoffs

Phil Dawson (NFL)

The Cleveland Browns ended another miserable season on Sunday with a 41-9 waxing by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It was the worst defeat of the season for the Browns who finished at 5-11.

The win for the Steelers, who are 12-4, locked up the number 2 seed in the AFC playoffs, giving them a first-round bye and a home game in the second-round.

Under beleaguered Eric Mangini, the Browns have finished 5-11 both seasons.

Browns placekicker Phil Dawson feels that he’s kicked his final football for Cleveland. His house in the Cleveland area has been sold and he’ll be a free agent in February.

The game solidified the Browns with the #6 pick in the 2011 draft, according to the NFL.

The Browns 2011 home schedule will be Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Seattle, Tennessee and Miami.

Road opponents will be Arizona, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Houston, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Oakland.

Eric Wedge takes over rebuilding job in Seattle

Since Lou Piniella left the Seattle Mariners bench as the manager in 2002, the manager’s office in the Pacific Northwest has been revolving door of who’s coming next!

The other managers were Bob Melvin, Mike Hargrove, John McLaren, Jim Riggleman, Don Wakamatsu and Daren Brown. At least Piniella stayed 10 years and that added stability to the franchise but now another manager is ready to jump in to take control of a losing team.

After a year away from baseball, former Cleveland Indians manager Eric Wedge is ready to go again.

Eric Wedge is now in Seattle (MLB) reported Saturday night that Wedge would be the next Seattle manager, but it was officially confirmed on Monday that 42-year-old Wedge was hired as the Mariners seventh manager since 2003 and he received a three-year contract.

This rebuilding job will not be easy to retify. Seattle has not been to the playoffs in 10 years; it’s coming off it’s second 101-loss season in the past three and they are clearly the worst team in the AL West behind contending teams Texas, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Oakland. Ichiro Suzuki is clearly the only star player on the team.

Wedge is used to rebuilding. He was given the task twice in Cleveland. In seven seasons on Lake Erie, the media-friendly Wedge had some nice ballclubs that featured power, pitching, defense and speed. In 2007, he took the Indians to one win of the World Series.

But in his second try at rebuilding the Tribe, he lost his job.

The Ohio State men’s basketball program keeps reeling in the top prospects. It’s like the football program, reloading not rebuilding.

Trey McDonald, a 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward-center from Battle Creek Central High School in Battle Creek, Michigan, on Monday night, said he has committed to Ohio State and will be signing a letter of intent during the early signing period November 10-17.

McDonald, who chose Ohio State over DePaul, Marquette, Oakland and Wake Forest, said he fell in love with the Buckeyes during his official visit October 2 & 3.

McDonald joins Scott Shannon of Alpharetta, Georgia, LaQuinton Ross of Jackson, Mississippi and Sam Thompson of Chicago in the 2011 Ohio State recruiting class.
