Daly Dose #138 Our midseason Major League Baseball report

This week on the Daly Dose, we are looking at Major League Baseball at the halfway point. Who are the best teams? Which teams are most likely to fade down the stretch? We know the Chicago Cubs are the defending champs, but can they even make the postseason this year? Are the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals contenders or pretenders?

NBA free agency is slowing down now, and we look at the winners and losers from a busy offseason signing period.

The NFL quarterback may be the most important position in all of sports, yet we have a number of teams that are still not settled on who their starter will be. We know that the Denver BroncosChicago Bears, and Cleveland Browns still need to pick a starter, but who else could be heading for a QB controversy?

Why you shouldn’t care about the McGregor vs. Mayweather press conferences, and we count down the Top 5 most impactful NBA free agent signings of all time!

Pablo Sandoval’s shoulder: “I’m less swollen then the rest of him”

Boston Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval traveled to Pensacola, Florida, to get a second opinion on his sore left shoulder.

But according to Red Sox manager John Farrell there is just too much residual swelling to get a good evaluation.

Sandoval received a cortisone shot and will be looked at again in two weeks.

But according to his left shoulder it isn’t the only problem.

“Look man, I’m not saying that I’m not sore but let me ask you something…how would you feel if you had this dude laying on you every night?” asked Sandoval’s left shoulder on Tuesday.

Fat-Pablo-Sandoval

“They got this cat listed at 255 pounds…let me tell you…I’ve seen the scale, and it spins three times before it even slows down.” it continued.

Sandoval signed a five-year deal worth $95 million dollars prior to last season but then had the worst season of his career. He hit just .245 with only 10 homers and the club began wondering if some of his problems went back to his extra weight.

The Red Sox have placed Sandoval on the disabled list with a “left shoulder strain” last week, but they aren’t exactly sure when the injury took place.

“Strain? They listed me as strained?” asked the shoulder. “This guy fell asleep on me after knocking out 14 Big Macs! So yeah, I’m strained. Strained like the Coyote was strained when a piano fell on him in the Roadrunner cartoons. Ohhhh….mannn…is that cortisone? Oh I love cortisone. We should go to McDonalds again.”
