    David Schoenfield

    Two weeks to go. Two weeks of gut-wrenching, sweat-inducing, pacing-in-front-of-the-TV baseball if you're a Kansas City Royals fan, hoping to see your team make the playoffs for the first time since 1985. Two weeks of wondering when Robinson Cano ...

  2. Fredi's risky move pays off for Braves

    David Schoenfield

    One of the byproducts of sabermetrics has been the change in how we view managers. For starters, general managers are now the off-the-field face of the organization. There was a time when Earl Weaver had a big role in determining his 25-man roster or...

    David Schoenfield

  8. Braves-Nationals-Marlins rivalry heats up

    David Schoenfield

    I'm not sure if Atlanta Braves fans have a chip on their shoulder, but I will say that it appears they don't like the attention the Washington Nationals get. It comes up in my chat sessions every week; of course, it could be the same guy, so maybe I'...

  12. Time for the Braves to cut Dan Uggla

    David Schoenfield

    I've always liked Dan Uggla, a guy who has fought for respect his entire career. An 11th-round pick in 2001 out of the University of Memphis, the Arizona Diamondbacks never really considered him much of a prospect. He spent parts of three seasons at ...

    David Schoenfield
