  3. King Felix more dominant than ever

    David Schoenfield

    It may not be quite accurate to suggest Felix Hernandez is pitching the best baseball of his career, considering he's won a Cy Young Award, pitched a perfect game and has been one of the game's best starters since 2009. But Felix Hernandez is pitc...

  7. Daniel Murphy and nonfast base stealers

    David Schoenfield

    New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy isn't what I'd call fast. I mean, he's not a catcher or a plodding first baseman, but he won't ever be mistaken for a burner. He has maybe average-ish speed. He was never much of a base stealer. He topped ou...

  11. Did the Cubs cost Matt Garza 30 wins?

    David Schoenfield

    One thing about baseball players: They're good at playing baseball. They're not always so good about analyzing baseball. Case in point, this quote from Matt Garza, when advising former Cubs teammate Jeff Samardzija: "I told [Samardzija], 'It do...
