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!

Cubs fans get another bag full of rocks for Halloween

Chicago Cubs fans were hoping this year would finally be different.

They put on their costumes just like they have every season since 1908.

But they thought this year, they might actually come home with some candy.

Yet for some reason that is completely unknown, while other trick or treaters had their bags filled with all kinds of candy and treats, Cubs fans received nothing but rocks.

House after house, it was the same old thing that has been tormenting Cubbies fans for years.

“I got five pieces of candy! said Dodgers fans.

“I got a chocolate bar!” said Indians fans.

“I got a package of gum!” said Cardinals fans.

But just like clockwork, even in their most hopeful of Halloween nights, Cubs fans were left saying the same thing that they have said house after house and year after year.

“I got a rock.”

Their misery didn’t end there.

This morning, this reporter encountered a number of Cubs fans that had fallen asleep outside with their bag of rocks, while waiting once again for the Great Pumpkin.

“It’s okay.” I encouraged them. “I have done some stupid things in my life too.”

“STUPID?” they screamed. “What do you mean “stupid”? Just wait till next year! You’ll see! Next year at this same time, we’ll find a pumpkin patch that is *real* sincere and we’ll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears. He’ll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he’ll fly through the air with his bag of toys. The Great Pumpkin will appear and We’ll be waiting for him! We’ll be there! We’ll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch… and we’ll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait and see!. We’ll see that Great Pumpkin. We’ll SEE the Great Pumpkin! Just you wait! The Great Pumpkin will appear, and we’ll be waiting for him!”

MLB announces they will keep all future playoff schedules completely secret

Major League Baseball has had enough of you watching their postseason playoff games.

marlins_baseball1

They tried to keep their postseason schedules quiet, scheduling games for the middle of the day when the average fan is still at work.

They have even tried to hide the broadcasts for television coverage placing them on obscure networks like FS1 in between the hunting channel and the 24 hour cupcake contest channel.

But now they are playing for keeps.

They have announced that you can only watch the games if you know a secret password and the games will be scheduled at random times of the day.

“We believe that baseball should be enjoyed by only certain people. It is like an exclusive club. And we only want people who are true baseball fans.” said Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred. ‘And to be really honest we would like them to be at least 60 and preferably white. So we are going to hide the games. They might be on Friday night during prime time. Or they might be in the middle of the night on a Tuesday.You just never know. And I’m not going to tell you.”

When asked if he is concerned about baseball being so far behind football in viewership numbers Manfred was unapologetic. “Our numbers have never been higher. We have never had such high numbers in 2015 on a Wednesday afternoon as we just had yesterday. Oh sure, I know that statistic doesn’t make one ounce of sense but whatever I can do to keep the attention off of our sport being boring, outdated, and going the way of horse racing is what I am going to try to do.”
