On the MLB podcast with Matt:

#1 How important is it that MLB is played in London between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox marking a first time to play a regular season game across the pond?

#2 This will be a two-game weekend series and they’ll be big for each team. The Red Sox are nine games behind the first-place Yankees and it gives the Red Sox a chance to try and capitalize on them if they take two games.

#3 How big is it for the game of baseball to be played in London and will it be possible for baseball to be played in London as an annual event?

#4 The Oakland A’s new ballpark discussion has reached the topic of what happens if the Oakland City Council doesn’t come to an agreement to have the A’s build their own ball park at Howard Terminal. The top issues that concern the council are how are fans and the public going to get to the stadium with mass transit being a huge concern and secondly how the stadium, housing, hotels, and retail built by the A’s plan to cover the cost by charging a tax on each business and property.

#5 The A’s Matt Olson continues to crush the ball with two home runs and five RBIs sending the A’s to a five-run 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels at Angels Stadium in Anaheim on Friday night.
