Joe and Sam discuss MLB London, the All-Star break and the trade market ahead of the 31st July deadline.

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees played out a thrilling two-game set at London Stadium at the end of June. Records were broken in a high-scoring, scorching thriller on the Saturday evening, while the Sunday game provided yet more runs as the Red Sox bullpen collapsed to allow a Yankee comeback.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Pete Alonso, Joc Pederson and Ronald Acuna Jr. put on a show in the Home Run Derby on Monday, setting the tone beautifully for Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Cleveland. Joe and Sam chat about the midsummer classic and its role in promoting Major League Baseball not just in America, but around the world.

Giants Madison Bumgarner and Will Smith are both set to be at the centre of trade sagas, as is discussed in the podcast, along with Mychal Givens, Nicholas Castellanos and Yasiel Puig.
