    David Schoenfield

    The St. Louis Cardinals won at least 86 games each season from 2008 through last year. They haven't made the playoffs every season, but they've been competitive every season. The one constant in those years, of course, has been All-Star catcher Yadie...

  2. 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...

  3. Hisashi Iwakuma is one of baseball's best

    David Schoenfield

    If the season ended right now (5:48 p.m. ET), the Mariners would be in the playoffs, tied with the Angels for the two American League wild-card spots, a half-game ahead of the Orioles. They're 31-28, just beat the Braves for the second time in Atlant...

  5. Rangers' roster turnover a good thing

    David Schoenfield

    It has been a terrific four-year run for the Texas Rangers: 90 wins and a trip to the World Series in 2010, 96 wins and one strike away from a World Series title in 2011, 93 wins and a wild-card spot in 2012 and 91 wins in 2013. The Rangers and Rays ...

  8. Rays pull out another must-win victory

    David Schoenfield

  9. Wacha's gem puts Cards in driver's seat

    David Schoenfield

    Michael Wacha last pitched 13 days ago. You may remember that he was pretty good in that game: He lost a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning on Ryan Zimmerman's infield single. Amazingly, in just his 10th career start, Wacha followed up th...

  10. Leyland's slow hook burns Tigers in Game 3

    David Schoenfield

  11. It was time for Dusty Baker to go

    David Schoenfield

  12. Reds-Pirates: What to watch for

    David Schoenfield

    Whether or not you like the one-and-done format of the wild-card game, it does present a great opportunity to second guess everything the managers do, from roster management to pitching changes, bunts and, of course, when to use your closer. Tim K...

  13. Tigers limp into playoffs after Alvarez no-no

    David Schoenfield

    We interrupt your wild-card races to give you Henderson Alvarez and one of the strangest celebrations you'll ever see. The Miami Marlins right-hander struck out Matt Tuiasosopo to end the top of the ninth -- completing nine no-hit innings against ...

  14. Wacha has to be in Cards' playoff rotation

    David Schoenfield

    You know how the St. Louis Cardinals acquired Michael Wacha? Yes, with the 19th pick of the first round of the 2012 draft. But you know how they acquired that pick? The got it from the Los Angeles Angels. For losing Albert Pujols as a free agen...

  15. Wild card making September more exciting

    David Schoenfield

    Look, the wild-card game is goofy. Or dumb, depending on your personal taste. Having teams play 162 regular-season games and then a one-game playoff to move on in the postseason is akin to having an NFL playoff game that lasts about six minutes. B...

  16. Playoff watch: Mediocrity reigns in AL

    David Schoenfield

    Let's be honest: The American League wild-card "race" is more like two marathon runners stumbling to the finish line. As my colleague Jim Caple points out, over the past month the Rangers are 11-16, the Rays are 13-16, the Orioles are 14-15, the Yank...
