  4. Wrap: Big problems for O's, Indians, Rays

    David Schoenfield

    This whole closer thing is a tough business. Perfection isn't just expected; it's demanded. Slip up once and it's a headline; slip up twice and fans are ready to trade you to Topeka. Slip up three times and your manager usually starts questioning you...

  6. Thursday thoughts: Closers not closing

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Wednesday's games: Three closers blew ninth-inning leads -- Phil Coke of the Tigers, Fernando Rodney of the Rays and Chris Perez of the Indians. The Rays and Indians ended up winning their games anyway, so no harm, no foul. Of t...

  7. Indians as good as overrated Tigers

    David Schoenfield

    OK, I'll give you Justin Verlander. I'll even give you Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and Austin Jackson. But five through 25? I think I'll take the Cleveland Indians over the Detroit Tigers. The Indians beat the Tigers 5-3 on Tuesday, even ...

  9. Clearing the Bases: Chapman closes

  11. AL Central showdown: Position rankings

    David Schoenfield

  12. Running diary: More disaster in Beantown!

    David Schoenfield

    Welcome to Cleveland. It's a foggy, misty day, something out of a Stephen King novel. The lights are on, the stands are empty and it looks like a completely miserable day to be playing baseball. Especially if you're 0-5. Fausto Carmona is start...
