Podcast: King Felix, Melky and awards
By Eric Karabell
Thursday's Baseball Today podcast featured Keith and me discussing a crazy day in baseball.
1. Felix Hernandez is perfect! We discuss his greatness, how he accomplished this and why the poor Rays keep ending up on the other end of history.
2. Melky Cabrera is not perfect! We discuss how the Giants move on and what this means to their chances, the temptation to cheat and how a certain Cubs outfielder doesn’t like the weather by the bay.
3. Keith sizes up the awards races and a certain Triple Crown threat doesn’t show up on the AL MVP ballot. Hmmmm.
4. Our spirited emailers want answers about new managers, benching Bryce Harper and Michael Young, and the Dylan Bundy situation.
5. Thursday’s schedule features Cy Young contender David Price against a hurting Angel, and why would the Braves consider moving one of their best pitchers to the bullpen?
So download and listen to Thursday’s Baseball Today podcast, because the standings claim the Orioles are leading the wild-card race. Isn’t baseball grand?
