Is it the speed and defense of the Angels' Trout, or is it the awe-inspiring monster swing of the Nationals' Harper? Plus, some updates on the MLB trade deadline, and your Random Questions.
Tonight! Join us here at ditcow.com for a live videocast of Kevin and I chatting up baseball. We'll start with the debate between Mike Trout and Bryce Harper: who's better?

John in CT and Mike in North NJ return to chat with Dave about the Open Championship after a series of weather delays and a very exciting three way playoff. Jordan Spieth misses the playoff by a stroke to end his bid for a Grand Slam of Golf, and Louis Oosthuizen missed extending the playoff by a stroke, giving Zach Johnson the win in a four hole playoff. John, Mike, and Dave chat about the best moments from historic St. Andrews in Scotland, plus a look ahead to the PGA Championship in Wisconsin. Kevin on the Cape joins Dave for Hour 2 after his food truck tour PLUS: Dave wonders what's going on with ESPN? Why all the staff cuts? How did ESPN let talent like Colin Cowherd, Bill Simmons, and Keith Olbermann leave so fast?
We're back with a new show tonight at 9pm ET. Kevin on the cape is BACK on the show at 10 for Hour 2, and John & Mike rejoin the show to chat the Open Championship. What an exciting finish it was, we'll give you the details on Zach Johnson's big win and the three-way playoff. Join us tonight at 9 for all the chatter, it's on YouTube via this embedded video player below.
First of all, I apologize.
Canadian Karen was originally scheduled to join this week's show but there was a scheduling conflict. Instead, Dave runs down the Lakers underwhelming but not quite disappointing offseason. The Lakers missed on LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre Jordan, but managed to recover with Brandon Bass, Lou Williams (the sixth man of the year), and a deal with center Roy Hibbert. We'll dig into the potential matchups at Wimbledon with Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova on track to meet each other for the final round. On the men's side, Novak Djokovic tries to repeat as champion as he advances to the quarters.
We're pleased to bring back the popular "Canadian Karen" in Studio for tonight's podcast. We'll chat Wimbledon, perhaps a word on the MLB all star game, and a rundown of the Lakers offseason so far. Join us by watching on YouTube, the direct video feed is below this paragraph and goes live at 10pm Eastern tonight. Enjoy!
