  1. The Met's collection of baseball cards

    David Schoenfield

    Notice the headline: It says "The Met" and not "The Mets." We're talking about the Metropolitan Museum of Art and their collection of baseball cards -- including a Honus Wagner T206. As Paul Lukas reports, the story behind how the museum got the c...

  2. Baseball card industry grows up

    David Schoenfield

    My friend Marty told me a story about how his 7-year-old daughter loves baseball cards. She likes baseball, but she loves baseball cards. Enough so that she recently took some to school for show-and-tell. What she likes most about them is the informa...

  3. Rookie starters take center stage

    David Schoenfield

    If you collected baseball cards in the 1980s, you'll remember the "rookie craze." You'd open a pack, desperately seeking that Dwight Gooden rookie card or Mark McGwire rookie card or Sam Horn rookie card. Those cards were going to pay for your colleg...

  4. Five reasons the Dodgers have struggled

    David Schoenfield

    The Dodgers enter Monday's game against the Reds with a 33-31 record, good enough to be in the thick of this year's wild-card race but 9.5 games behind the best-in-baseball Giants. Mediocrity may be good enough for now, but it's certainly not what wa...

  5. AL wild-card breakdown: Rays the favorite

    David Schoenfield

    Let's get this out of the way: From what I can tell, Major League Baseball does not have rules in place for a five-way tiebreaker for the second wild card. So that won't happen. It can't happen, because we don't need another image of Bud Selig shrugg...

    In my previous post, I ran down the American League poll results from the offseason report cards. Here are the National League results. As in the AL, fans are optimistic cross the board. For those who argue baseball lacks parity, tell that to base...

  8. Does top mark after Aug. 1 mean anything?

    David Schoenfield

    @dschoenfield We saw the F offseason grade for the Orioles. They don't need anybody else they had the best record in baseball after August 1 - Ross Parker (@KP112) February 13, 2013 Ross may have disagreed with my report card on the Orioles,...

  9. Chipper Jones not a fan of wild-card game

    David Schoenfield

    From David O'Brien's story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution over the weekend, Chipper Jones talks about the wild-card game: "I think it's stupid, to be honest with you. But Major Lague Baseball wants a bunch of teams in the playoffs. There's noth...

  10. Podcast: Wild-card madness, amazing A's

    David Schoenfield

    I joined Eric Karabell on Thursday's Baseball Today podcast and we debated the NL wild-card race: Is it really exciting or are we just watching a bunch of mediocre teams battle it out? Plus the amazing Oakland A's and A.J. Griffin, the White Sox and...

  12. Brewers making wild-card race extra fun

    David Schoenfield

    The second wild card is a goofy, ridiculous idea that goes against everything baseball history stands for: That the regular season is the ultimate test of a team's ability, strength and toughness. To get to the playoffs, you have to prove yourself ov...

  13. Crystal ball: Dempster lands in Detroit

    David Schoenfield

    In this season of parity, in this season of two wild cards, in this season of the first-place Pirates and the last-place Red Sox and best-record-in-baseball Dodgers, almost anything is possible. Except the idea that your team is going to make a bi...

  14. Links: Wild card, Bobby V, pitching in Coors

    David Schoenfield

    Sports Illustrated's Joe Sheehan responds to the likelihood that baseball will be adding a second wild-card team. Joe perfectly sums up the problems I also have with the second wild card. In fact, I would argue the problems are so obvious, and the be...

    David Schoenfield

    No more making fun of the NL Central, not after the St. Louis Cardinals shocked the baseball world with their wild-card run and postseason dramatics. But that was 2011. The Cardinals will have to repeat without their best player and their legendar...

  16. Running diary: NL wild-card race still tight

    David Schoenfield

    The Braves are trying to rebound from a crushing defeat. The Cardinals are trying to make the biggest September comeback of any wild-card team in history. The Giants are somehow still in this thing. It's September baseball with games that mean som...
