Red Sox are the second team to 50 wins

For a team of no-names and over-the-hills this has been quite a remarkable season so far

Pretty dreadful name, the film 'Major League' will never be the same again. :(

Hopefully the Celtics won't be forced to change their name in the NBA.

I drove over the bridge featuring the guardians in question quite a few times when I lived in Cleveland and didn't give them much thought. Should have named them after this phenomenon (far less irritating than what we call midges and a tenuous link to the baseball).

A few big names moving teams at the trade deadline

Max Scherzer goes from the Nationals to the Dodgers

Anthony Rizzo goes from the Cubs to the Yankees

Kyle Schwarber goes from the Nationals to the Red Sox

Meanwhile, after not being able to play at home since before COVID, the Blue Jays are finally back in Toronto

Anyone have an idea what is going on at the Cubs, selling the silverware for peanuts?

I thought that Rizzo would be there until he retires. Wouldn't surprise me if he re-signs with the Cubs this winter.

Bryant to the Padres is a good move for the latter as Tatis Jr is having injury problems

The Red Sox tested the water on Scherzer, but were a bit more restrained than other teams. I think that the management know that, despite being in first place on the AL East, they're not really a World Series contender

This is pretty cool, first MLB game ever played in Iowa - in a cornfield no less.   Warning: contains Joe Buck.

I disagree about the Iowa game. I thought that the idea was completely naff.

over sentimental nonsense on a mocked up film set.

Watched a bit of baseball (and softball) at the Olympics and decided it's not bad. I've decided to be a Cubs fans, on the basis a Cub is a baby Bear. Not that I will probably ever watch them as I don't have BT (I assume Channel 5 don't show any games these days?). Anyway, thought I should check. Are Cubs actually any good?

Is the World Series, at least, on council telly or all behind a paywall?

There are free games on mlb.tv most days. I think that there are 12 today.

A subscription for the rest of the season probably wonít cost too much.

There are also some live games on YouTube.

Assume all on late in the night? I was hoping to record one and watch without knowing the score. I might give YouTube a go, thanks. I don't really understand it yet but always happy to take on a new sport. Mind you I think they are missing a trick not bothering their arses with the Olympics any more.

Plenty of afternoon games, which start around 6pm our time.

MLB.com has two free games on live at the moment
