Mark Sanchez is meeting with the Bears, so the snark buffet is open

Mark Sanchez smiles at practice with the Eagles in 2015.

Snark — it’s finger-lickin’ good:

Free agency is no way to build a Super Bowl team. The draft is the yellow brick road. Ryan Pace stressed that point.

But yet, the Bears titular GM signed a free agent with a career completion percentage under 60 percent to start at the most important position on the field. Follow that, people?

But wait. There’s more. It isn’t easy to find a quarterback with a career completion percentage worse than Mike Glennon’s, but here’s Mark Sanchez reportedly visiting the Bears on Wednesday. What, Jimmy Clausen said no?

It’s only a visit, and it could end right there, but the patterns appears to show the Bears’ plan is to sign enough quarterbacks to ensure that the quarterback they draft will get zero reps.

Did I miss the part where the Bears said they’re playing for the first overall pick in 2018? I’ll hang up and listen for Pace’s next video.

Bulls-Raptors was filled with such awfulness that it looked like two teams deciding the first lottery pick.

First, the Raptors fell behind by 16 to a team that is out of the playoffs. Then, the Bulls blew a 15-point lead in the fourth-quarter.

At the end of regulation, Jimmy Butler and DeMar DeRozan, two stars expected to decide games, took such awful shots that I thought they had their own little game of H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E going.

But wait. There’s more. Butler was the only Bull to score in the last 6:39 of regulation and all but the last nine seconds of overtime until Rajon Rondo made a layup.

In that time, Denzel Valentine missed four shots, as did Rondo, while Nikola Mirotic and Joffrey Lauvergne each missed twice.

How’s that plan to contend while developing young players working out?

Robin Lopez and Serge Ibaka traded punches because they were so desperate to escape the soul-scarring play of that game, amirite?

Cam Payne, the centerpiece of the Doug McDermott-Taj Gibson deal, was sent to the D League. He’s expected to be recalled in time for in the McDonald’s All-American Game.

The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): Letting Gar Forman’s draft picks play in the postseason or letting Gar Forman make another lottery pick?

Joe Maddon said the Cubs are “not going to steal bases. Everybody knows that.’’ This came shortly after Javier Baez stole three bases to drive Buster Posey crazy in the World Baseball Classic and before Baez stole third against the Netherlands with a magic slide that was all over the InterWebs.

There are times when I don’t think Maddon manages Baez as much as just tries to wrangle him.

What’s up, John Salley?
