  9. Mike Piazza makes ONE Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

  13. Five best players in baseball: A history

    David Schoenfield

    The genesis for this article came out of all the recent Hall of Fame discussions. A lot of arguments were along the lines of "Tim Raines was one of the best players in baseball in the mid-'80s," or "You know, Don Mattingly was the best in the game th...

  14. 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...
