  1. Can you guess the Hall of Famer?

    David Schoenfield

    Let's play a little Hall of Fame game. I'm going to present two players with similar statistics. One is in the Hall of Fame and the other is on this year's ballot. Presented two lines of numbers, can you guess which player is the Hall of Famer? Check...

  2. SweetSpot TV: Jeter best SS ever?

    David Schoenfield

    It's a very special edition of SweetSpot TV as Eric Karabell and myself discuss Mr. Derek Jeter. At the age of 38, Jeter is having a terrific season at the plate, hitting .321 and leading the American League in hits. We raise the question: Is Derek J...

  3. Dream teams: 1992 versus 2012

    David Schoenfield

    Before the Olympics began, Kobe Bryant suggested this year's Olympic basketball team would defeat the fabled 1992 Dream Team that featured Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley and Larry Bird. Bryant later adjusted his thoughts, saying the D...

  4. Clearing the bases: Lester the disaster

    David Schoenfield

    First base: Lester loses again. It was a brutal weekend for the Boston Red Sox as they got swept at home by the Toronto Blue Jays by the scores of 6-1, 7-3 and 15-7. Jon Lester was terrible again, allowing 11 runs in four innings on Sunday, including...

  5. Links: Inner-circle Hall, trade value list, Salty

    David Schoenfield

    It's Hall of Fame induction weekend, so congratulations to Barry Larkin and the late Ron Santo for their honor. Jerry Crasnick has a nice story about covering the young Larkin with the Reds. On a related topic, Graham Womack of the Baseball: Past ...

  6. The Hall of Fame and MVP winners

    David Schoenfield

    With the Hall of Fame voting still on our minds, I thought it would be fun to look at which non-Hall of Famers fared best in MVP voting, and which Hall of Famers have fared worst. Modern MVP voting began in 1931 so we'll focus on players whose car...

  7. Larkin in, but good news for Bagwell, Raines

    David Schoenfield

    It's difficult enough to get three people to agree on anything, let alone 573. So the fact that the Baseball Writers' Association of America managed to push Barry Larkin past the 75 percent threshold to elect him into the Hall of Fame is a minor m...

  8. My Hall of Fame ballot ... if I had one

    David Schoenfield

    I'm not an actual Hall of Fame voter. But if I did have a ballot, here's what it would look like. Yes votes Jeff Bagwell: He's vastly overqualified by even tough Hall of Fame standards, an outstanding all-around player who was one of the very b...

  9. Lee Smith: The ultimate compiler

    David Schoenfield

    I want to consider Lee Smith's Hall of Fame question fairly. But I keep returning to what I think is the obvious question: Would you really rather have Lee Smith on your team than Barry Larkin or Alan Trammell or Edgar Martinez or Tim Raines or Berni...

  10. Barry Larkin deserves Hall of Fame nod

    David Schoenfield

    There seems to be a widespread assumption that Barry Larkin will get elected this year to the Hall of Fame. After all, he is the highest-ranking player from last year's ballot who didn't get in, and without the addition of any strong new candidates t...

  11. Pat Gillick's 10 best moves

    David Schoenfield

    You can debate the merits of an executive getting elected to the Hall of Fame; personally, I find it a bit ridiculous that Pat Gillick got elected and will be enshrined this year while deserving players like Barry Larkin, Tim Raines, Alan Trammell an...
