  1. The all-time all-underrated team

    David Schoenfield

    The recent Hall of Fame elections serve two important purposes. One, it's a chance to recognize the superstars of the recent past and how many memories Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio provided us. But the elections also se...

  2. Hall of Fame fallout: What they're saying

    David Schoenfield

    We'll have the largest Hall of Fame class since 1955 with four new Hall of Famers in Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Craig Biggio and John Smoltz. It's maybe the most impressive group elected by the BBWAA in a single year since 1947, when Carl Hubbell...

  4. Ranking this year's Hall of Fame candidates

    David Schoenfield

    I don't have a Hall of Fame vote since I've been a BBWAA member for only one year. Will there even be a Hall of Fame in nine years when I'll be eligible to vote? Anyway, if I did have a vote, I've come around to using "wins above average" as a goo...

  5. Make-or-break HOF election for Jeff Bagwell

    David Schoenfield

    On Tuesday, I suspect we'll hear that Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Craig Biggio and John Smoltz have been elected to the Hall of Fame. Aside from those four, however, this election may prove most critical for Jeff Bagwell. I've written about Bag...

  6. The broken Hall of Fame voting system

    David Schoenfield

    Over the weekend, I saw "The Imitation Game," the story of British mathematician Alan Turing. Turing helped crack the German Enigma code machine during World War II, allowing the Allies to decipher German secret messages and help bring an earlier end...

  7. Hall of Fame: What they're saying

    David Schoenfield

    I'm in Hall of Fame fatigue, but here's one last post, a roundup of what some others are writing about Wednesday's results. And then we'll move on to Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez, and why the Orioles haven't made a big move. Tom Verducci, Spor...

  8. The big, huge Hall of Fame post, Part 4

    David Schoenfield

    Let's finish up with the 14 players I consider strong Hall of Fame candidates. Of course, if I had a ballot, I could vote for only 10 ... well, that's another essay, my friends. Here is Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. The Hall of Famers 14. Tim R...

  10. Should Yankees re-sign Robinson Cano?

    David Schoenfield

    New York Yankees president Randy Levine said the club wants to re-sign impending free agent Robinson Cano (duh) but that "nobody is a re-sign at any cost." Much is being made of that statement, but it's really the obvious thing to say, right? The Yan...

  11. Manny Machado is awesome at doubles

    David Schoenfield

    The Baltimore Orioles have played 54 games and Manny Machado has played in all 54. The amazing Machado fact, however, isn't that he hasn't missed a game but that he's hit 25 doubles -- he hit another one Thursday night, a grounder down the third-base...

  12. Hall of Fame voting hits a new low

    David Schoenfield

    Is this a sad day for baseball? Maybe not. There will be another election next year and one the year after that. I presume onward into the future players will get elected. But this year? The Baseball Writers' Association of America struck out. Nob...

  13. Mike Piazza makes ONE Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

    I've mentioned this before: While the Baseball Writers Association of America have become very stingy on their Hall of Fame elections (and that's aside from the candidates associated with PEDs), other groups are just as stingy -- if not more so. T...

  14. Hall of Fame links: Nobody may get in

    David Schoenfield

    Some stuff out there on the Internet, Hall of Fame related ... 1. Joe Posnanski with a fun post on the Topps numbering system -- if you collected cards, you remember the best players would get card No. 100 or 300 or whatever, stars would get No...

  15. Bagwell fans: Don't hate on Hall voters

    David Schoenfield

    On Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET, the Hall of Fame voting results will be announced. It's possible that Jack Morris makes it in, and maybe Craig Biggio makes it in, and maybe nobody makes it in. One guy who won't make it in is Jeff Bagwell, who...

  16. Granderson could achieve historic feat

    David Schoenfield

    In major league history, a player has scored 150 or more runs 46 times, topped by Billy Hamilton's 198 for the 1894 Philadelphia Phillies. You can probably guess that the game was a little different back then: Hamilton posted a .521 on-base percentag...
