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!

LeBron James to take on Michael Phelps in swim race on Mayweather vs. McGregor undercard

The Floyd Mayweather vs. Connor McGregor fight has taken some criticism for being a shameless money grab by many in the sports world. The formerly retired championship boxer Mayweather, will square off against the UFC lightweight champion Connor McGregor, on August 26th in Las Vegas.

Nevermind that McGregor has never fought a professional boxing match. Forget for a moment that Mayweather has only selected opponents that he knows are inferior. UFC president Dana White says that this will be a competitive fight, and he is in the process of booking an undercard that will be fitting.

It was announced on Monday, that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James will take on former Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps in a 100 meter freestyle swimming sprint prior to the big fight.

White answered critics that said this is turning into more of a circus than a legitimate boxing match. “This is not a circus. We are trying to put together the top contenders that we can find. Floyd and Connor are the top two contenders.” White stated. “Granted, Floyd is retired, and Connor plays a different sport, but they are still a very intriguing matchup. And this race between Lebron and Michael is going to be top notch as well. LeBron James is one of the top athletes in the world today. Are you really going to bet against him? And Michael Phelps is old. He’s super old. He smokes dope. I’m telling you. This is going to be a really close race. Who knows? LeBron is going to beat him. And then he just might swim in the next Olympics, and never return to basketball. Never say never.”

Is there any truth to the rumor that that is fight is just being rushed to take place to upstage the Gennady Golovkin vs. Canleo Alvarez fight that is scheduled for September 16th, and being promoted by Golden Boy promotions?

“That is absolutely false.” White told the Daly Dose. “We didn’t even pay attention to that. We simply wanted to get the top stars into the ring, and the pool as soon as possible. We didn’t even know there was another fight. We are simply trying to put together a quality card. A legitimate card. A card featuring some of the top performers that we can find. By the way, do you have Usain Bolt’s number? We were thinking he might want to have a skating race against Sidney Crosby!”

Daly Doses: Thoughts, reflections, and derision from the Mile High City!

Doses

  • The NFL season is now underway and I think I have the league all figured out.
  • The Buffalo Bills and the St Louis Rams are headed to Super Bowl 50.
  • Peyton Manning can no longer play and should have retired 10 years ago.
  • Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota has the release of Marino, the poise of Montana, and the face of an angel.
  • The Seattle Seahawks are finished and will never be heard from again.
  • And the Oakland Raiders are still bad.
  • Of course Peyton Manning did face one of the top defenses from a year ago in a new offensive system and a rebuilt offensive line.
  • And Mariota will be the second coming of Joe Montana provided he can face the Buccaneers every single week.
  • And the Seahawks will probably get Kam Chancellor back, figure out their offensive line situation, and they will be right back in the playoffs.
  • And the Raiders are still bad.
  • By the way, the reason that Dolphins defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh and Bengals defensive back Adam “Pac Man” Jones weren’t disciplined after their plays on Sunday is because the league is afraid that their rulings would be overturned anyways.
  • And also because Suh is going to face Tom Brady twice this season.
  • And they are looking at two birds with one stone, if you know what I mean.
  • Big college football game here in Denver on Saturday as the University of Colorado faces off against their rival Colorado State.
  • And when I say “big” I mean big to the students and alumni of both schools and literally to no one else on the planet.
  • Both football programs are mediocre and have been for some time now.
  • Welterweight champion boxer Floyd Mayweather beat Andre Berto on Saturday night and has now retired at 49-0 matching former heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano and he tied Joe Louis with his 26th world title victory.
  • Mayweather says he is content with that record and will never fight again.
  • You believe him, right?
  • By the way, if you paid for that horrible fight against an overmatched Berto, I have some ocean front property in Aurora to sell you.
  • What am I saying? If you actually paid for that fight you can’t read this anyway.
