In case you missed them, five teachable moments from baseball’s first half:

▪ The Giants’ call-ups have been up to the task.

▪ Winning in Cleveland may be contagious.

▪ At least the American League East race is interesting.

▪ The Cubs are trying hard not to trip over destiny.

▪ The Rangers’ Rougned Odor can throw a punch.
