  1. Mattingly sits Puig: Twitter reaction

    David Schoenfield

    Yasiel Puig has been benched for Game 4 in favor of Andre Ethier. Puig is a better player than Ethier; he was better at the plate, and he's better in center field. But he also struck out seven times in a row before his sixth-inning triple in Game 3, ...

  3. Which outfielder should Dodgers trade?

    David Schoenfield

    Everyone expects the Dodgers to trade an outfielder this winter. Most likely Andre Ethier. Maybe Matt Kemp. Probably not Carl Crawford since nobody really wants Carl Crawford. And definitely not Yasiel Puig, because he's Yasiel Puig. With highly rega...

  4. Coco Crisp one of Monday's unsung heroes

    David Schoenfield

    When the Oakland A's acquired Chris Young in the offseason from the Arizona Diamondbacks, it appeared Coco Crisp would be the odd man out in the Oakland outfield, or at least see his playing substantially reduced. While it was billed as a "four guys ...

  6. Ten reasons the Phillies will be buyers

    David Schoenfield

    The Philadelphia Phillies are 23-24, they've been outscored by 31 runs, Roy Halladay is on the disabled list, Ryan Howard hasn't hit and Cole Hamels can't win. So the Phillies eventually will be sellers at the trade deadline, right? I don't think ...

  7. If you want Andre Ethier, you can have him

    David Schoenfield

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly benched veteran right fielder Andre Ethier for this afternoon's game in Milwaukee and did so publicly, suggesting Ethier lacks toughness or grit or fight or hustle or some combination of those: "It's not just all, 'Let'...

  8. Don't blame Mattingly: Blame the Dodgers

    David Schoenfield

    Maybe Don Mattingly is a good manager. Maybe he's a bad manager. Maybe, like his mentor Joe Torre, he's just four jobs away from the job that will turn him into a Hall of Famer. (The headline in the New York Daily News when the Yankees hired Torre: "...

    David Schoenfield

    "I mean, guys, I know how to hit. I promise you, I know how to hit. It's just right now, it's been pretty tough." -- Matt Kemp to reporters a few days ago Kemp has not had a good September. He's been mired in such a terrible slump that Cardinals ma...

    If you're a fan of one of these teams, you know of what I speak. For all the hype and attention given to the trade deadline, the biggest area of improvement for playoff contenders usually needs to come from players already on the roster. Here are 10 ...

  12. L.A. needs more than Hanley to win West

    David Schoenfield

    The Los Angeles Dodgers don't need Hanley Ramirez to suddenly convert back into vintage, MVP-candidate Hanley Ramirez. Certainly, the Dodgers have hopes Ramirez will exceed the .246/.322/.428 line he put up with the Marlins. But even if he fails t...

  14. Dodgers first to try 25-man bullpen!

    David Schoenfield

    Buster Olney had a note in his Sunday blog that the Dodgers may open the season with 13 pitchers. Not to pick on the Dodgers, because they won't be the only team to carry 13 pitchers, but I just don't understand this trend. Seven relief pitchers ...

  16. Question: Would Dodgers pinch-hit Ethier?

    David Schoenfield

    Andre Ethier isn't in the lineup for the Dodgers today. It's the top of the eighth as I write this and the Cubs lead 5-1. So the question: What if the Dodgers rally in the next two innings, or get a bunch of guys on base, and the pitcher's spot is du...
