Joe and Sam preview the upcoming MLB London Series, discussing the Yankees and Red Sox 2019 campaigns, the decision to bring Major League Baseball to the UK and the ballpark experience.
Aaron Judge, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Aroldis Chapman are picked out as players to watch. Judge has recently returned from injury, just in time to show off his freakish power to new fans of the game in the capital. Bradley is red-hot at the plate right now and could treat the crowd to some sensational defensive plays in centre field, while the flamethrowing Chapman is a must-watch if he is brought out of the bullpen over the weekend.
The Yankees currently lead the Red Sox by nine games in the American League East despite constant injury issues this season. New arrival Edwin Encarnacion is available for the showpiece at the London Stadium, but unfortunately former National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton has returned to the injured list.
