  1. How many All-Stars will be Hall of Famers?

    David Schoenfield

    I was asked this the other day: How many players from this year's All-Star Game will be Hall of Famers? My quick answer: Probably more than you think. Before we answer that question, let's look back at some games of the past for reference (* indic...

  2. All-Star reaction: A groovy ending for Jeter

    David Schoenfield

    One thing about Derek Jeter: He has a way of rising to the occasion. As New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said last year, when Jeter came off the disabled list and hit a home run in his first game back, "He's a movie is what he is." Indeed, Jet...

  5. Don't criticize Derek Jeter!

    David Schoenfield

    So, in my last post I argued that John Farrell made a mistake by naming Derek Jeter his leadoff hitter for the All-Star Game. Actually, I didn't really even make much of an argument, just said that with a lineup of All-Stars to choose from, Farrell e...

  6. Bad decision to bat Derek Jeter leadoff

    David Schoenfield

    No matter what you think about Derek Jeter being elected to start in the All-Star Game, I think we can all agree that he certainly should not be the leadoff batter for the American League. Somehow, with a lineup of the AL's best hitters at his dis...

    David Schoenfield

    At the All-Star Game, I asked Joey Votto about the Pittsburgh Pirates. This was back when everyone was still skeptical about the Pirates, or at least a little skeptical given their second-half collapses in 2011 and 2012. "They're 100 percent legit...
