Podcast: Cy Young talk, Orioles, Longoria

By David Schoenfield

Eric Karabell hosted, I guested, and we talked baseball stuff on Tuesday's Baseball Today podcast.

1. Jered Weaver versus Justin Verlander: Who deserves the AL Cy Young Award right now? And are we ignoring other candidates?

2. Mike Trout yelled at an umpire. What if Bryce Harper had done the same thing?

3. Evan Longoria returns for the Rays on Tuesday. Will he make everyone else in the lineup better?

4. The Orioles are still hanging around, and a user asks when we will start taking them seriously.

5. We preview Tuesday's slate of games that includes an NL Cy Young candidate.
