The B/B Podcast - Major League Baseball First Half Recap, Dwight Howard's Status as a Winner and the Pouncey Brothers Cause a Stir

By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we recap the first half of the Major League Baseball season, debate whether or not Dwight Howard is a "winner" despite being ringless after 9 seasons, and discuss Mike and Maurkice Pouncey's decision to publicly support former Florida Gators teammate Aaron Hernandez!

- MLB at the Break: Major League Baseball has officially hit the midway point, with the 84th edition of the Midsummer Classic set for Tuesday night. We take a look back at the first half of the season, discuss the road ahead, and name our front-runners for awards across the board.

- Winner With No Chips?: During an interview over the weekend, Dwight Howard stated that if he doesn't win a ring, he's "still a winner." After nearly a decade in the NBA and a zero in the 'titles won' column, is that really the case? We'll tell you.

- Pouncey Brothers Raise Eyebrows: On Saturday, NFL centers Mike and Maurkice Pouncey were seen wearing "Free Hernandez" caps while at a birthday party in Miami. With the former Pro Bowler currently behind bars as the primary suspect in the death of Odin Lloyd, how big of a mistake was it for the brothers to publicly show support for their former college teammate and friend? Hear our take.


We discuss the emotional impact that the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial had on the world of sports, as well as why so many professional athletes felt a connection with Trayvon Martin.

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!
