  1. Which outfielder should Dodgers trade?

    David Schoenfield

    Everyone expects the Dodgers to trade an outfielder this winter. Most likely Andre Ethier. Maybe Matt Kemp. Probably not Carl Crawford since nobody really wants Carl Crawford. And definitely not Yasiel Puig, because he's Yasiel Puig. With highly rega...

  2. Jacoby Ellsbury versus Carl Crawford

    David Schoenfield

    Came across this quote this morning, from Scott Boras, agent for Jacoby Ellsbury, back in September to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports: "Two things separate Ellsbury [from Crawford]. Carl Crawford was never proven as a leadoff hitter, and Carl Crawford i...

  3. Hanley great, Braves awful, Fredi messes up

    David Schoenfield

    Well, not every rookie starter can be expected to deliver a performance like Gerrit Cole did for the Pirates or Sonny Gray did for the A's. There isn't a whole lot to say about the Dodgers' 13-6 pounding of the Braves in Game 3 of their NL Divisio...

  4. Don't blame Mattingly: Blame the Dodgers

    David Schoenfield

    Maybe Don Mattingly is a good manager. Maybe he's a bad manager. Maybe, like his mentor Joe Torre, he's just four jobs away from the job that will turn him into a Hall of Famer. (The headline in the New York Daily News when the Yankees hired Torre: "...

  5. We're in a golden age for leadoff hitters

    David Schoenfield

    "I don't think I ever got proper credit about being smart about the game." -- Rickey Henderson When was the golden age for leadoff hitters? Well, 1965 was pretty good. Joe Morgan was a rookie that year and hit his way into the leadoff spot, where...

  6. Matt Kemp homers, but still not right

    David Schoenfield

    Not a lot has gone right for the Dodgers so far, and a lot went wrong on Wednesday night in New York when Carl Crawford dropped a fly ball in the ninth inning (it was generously ruled a double for Mike Baxter) that led to the tying run scorin...

  8. Twenty potential problems with the Dodgers

    David Schoenfield

    Dodgers fans: Quit reading now. This article is going to be painful. Here's the deal: The Dodgers could be awesome. Of course they could. They have the best pitcher in the National League in Clayton Kershaw, and the guy who probably should have wo...

  9. Dodgers becoming the team to root against

    David Schoenfield

    As if last summer's blockbuster deals in which the Dodgers took on Hanley Ramirez and the contracts of Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett didn't already make the team unlikeable in its pursuit of building Steinbrenner West, comes this fr...

  10. Angels more disappointing than Red Sox

    David Schoenfield

    I just returned from vacation and spent a portion of the weekend catching up on the HBO series "The Newsroom." The show has been a little uneven -- what's with all the personal discussions and arguments taking place right in the middle of the newsroo...

  11. AL East position rankings: O's seek respect

    David Schoenfield

    "Show us some respect," yell Baltimore Orioles fans. Or maybe they're politely demanding. But I've seen the complaints in the Power Rankings comments, read the emails sent to "Baseball Today," been asked the question in my chats: Why doesn't anyone b...

  12. Red Sox in shambles as Beckett stumbles

    David Schoenfield

    We drown in numbers and statistics these days, but here's one that sums up the crumbling state of the Boston Red Sox quite eloquently: Following Josh Beckett's implosion on Thursday night, Red Sox starters have now allowed five-plus runs in 14 starts...

  13. Clearing the bases: Don't count out Boston

    David Schoenfield

    First base: Carl Crawford out, Red Sox on a roll. On a day where sources indicated the Red Sox left fielder will miss another three months (a timetable Crawford denied), Boston pounded out 12 hits and 10 runs in roughing up Philip Humber for its four...

  14. Over/under: Wins for Red Sox

    David Schoenfield

    The 2011 Boston Red Sox didn't have any issues scoring runs -- 875, most in the majors. And that was with Carl Crawford having a bad season, Kevin Youkilis missing 42 games and J.D. Drew doing next to nothing. That means, of course, the pitchin...

    David Schoenfield

    Entering 2011, Jacoby Ellsbury had hit 20 home runs in 1,372 career major league at-bats. He'd missed nearly all of 2010 with a rib injury. The Red Sox had signed Carl Crawford to provide some dynamic speed for the top of the Boston order, presumably...

  16. So ... what kind of manager is Bobby V?

    David Schoenfield

    When fans think of Bobby Valentine, most will initially think of the time he tried to sneak back into the dugout wearing glasses and a fake mustache after getting ejected from a game. There will be plenty of talk about the perception that he's arroga...
