This week, Major League Baseball announced the winners of the Cy Young Award. Rick Porcello won in the AL. But should the award have gone to Justin Verlander? Kate Upton thinks so. Bill and Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce weigh in on that decision, as well as President Obama's picks for the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
