    David Schoenfield

    No, not for players -- that's a tired old assumption that should be discarded with the leftovers sitting in your fridge since the Brewers were still mathematically alive. I'm talking managers. Take Buck Showalter. In his first postseason, wh...

  9. As always, Giants find a way to win

    David Schoenfield

    It's hard to believe: Once again, a Washington Nationals season ended in part because they were unwilling to use Stephen Strasburg. I think we're figuring out why the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals keep winning these playoff series agai...
