Podcast: All-Star wrap, AL vs. NL, user mail
By David Schoenfield
Well, there was only one game to talk about so Keith Law and I were forced to discuss Tuesday night's destruction of Justin Verlander on Wednesday's Baseball Today podcast.
1. Both of us agree that perhaps Verlander didn't have the right attitude about his start. But does the 8-0 win really prove the NL is better than the AL?
2. Melky Cabrera won MVP honors over teammate Pablo Sandoval so we discuss Melky's future and what to expect from him moving forward. Meanwhile, Royals fans wonder what went wrong with Jonathan Sanchez.
3. Dillon Gee had surgery to remove a blood clot and will miss some time, so Keith fills us in on prospect Matt Harvey, who may replace Gee in the Mets' rotation.
4. We go to the emails and tweets to talk about the Tigers, White Sox, Marlins, Albert Pujols and prospects Gary Brown, Shelby Miller and A.J. Pollock.
5. Justin Upton ... would you trade him? We debate.
