The first half of the 2014 Major League Baseball season has been a dandy and it is only set to get better in the second half of the season. Who will take control of the American League East? Is this the year that the Detroit Tigers win the World Series? How many teams from the AL West will make the postseason? Will the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers both make the playoffs? Who will be buyers and who will be sellers at the trade deadline? I will discuss this and more on The 300lbsofsportsknowledge Show!!!!!!
Ed eats his bowl of crow after swearing up and down that LeBron would not sign with Cleveland. Well, he signed with Cleveland as Fuz predicted. The guys discuss all the changes in the NBA - from Chandler Parson's leaving for Dallas to Chris Bosh & Carmelo Anthony staying with their respective team. The guys will also take one last look at the World Cup, as Ed lawyer's up for Leo Messi and the the attacks against his sense of sportsmanship, while Fuz still mourns the Dutch choking again and Arjen Robben's penchant for flopping. Lastly, the guys tee-off on the MLB All-Star game and Monday's lackluster Home Run Derby.
MLB fans gather to debate the best and worst All Star Game starters as voted by the fans along with managerial decisions for the American and National League rosters. The panel tonight includes FanRag.com writers Chris Lacey (@aecanada12) and Pat Whitehurst (@Pat_Whitehurst) as well as Ricky Keeler (@rickinator555) and a slew of callers.
Which players were snubbed and does the entire All-Star Game process need to be altered?
We'll also discuss the top stories across the diamond including the Oakland Athletics trade with the Chicago Cubs and how the balance of power is shifting in baseball. Each division will be dissected and potential players on the move before the trade deadline will be discussed.
