  1. Rapid Fire! Harper, Arrieta ... Uggla?

    David Schoenfield

    OK, my apologies: We ran out of time today before taping the Rapid Fire video, so I'll make it a written post instead. From @JoshLumley: Bruce Harper could make better lineups than Matt Williams. Answer: True. Hey, Harper shouldn't have essenti...

  2. Five key issues as we reach the quarter pole

    David Schoenfield

    Whenever people say baseball is in trouble I point them to a game like Sunday's Yankees-Brewers contest in Milwaukee, a fun back-and-forth game played before a loud, soldout crowd of over 43,000 fans at Miller Park. Yes, it was the Yankees and it ...

  3. Pitching four days in a row: A history

    David Schoenfield

    One of the craziest games of recent years took place on Monday, when the Phillies scored five runs in the bottom of the eighth to take a 6-5 lead, only to blow it in the ninth when Dan Uggla hit a grand slam for the Braves off Jake Diekman. One re...

  4. Chat wrap: Uggla, Braves, Nationals, more

    David Schoenfield

    Well, needless to say we talked about Dan Uggla in Tuesday's chat. Braves and Nationals fans got into a heated war of worlds. We discussed instant replay. Plus Miguel Cabrera's slow start, Mike Trout's lack of steal, whether pitchers are cheating and...

  5. Time for the Braves to cut Dan Uggla

    David Schoenfield

    I've always liked Dan Uggla, a guy who has fought for respect his entire career. An 11th-round pick in 2001 out of the University of Memphis, the Arizona Diamondbacks never really considered him much of a prospect. He spent parts of three seasons at ...

  6. Opening Day primer: What not to miss

    David Schoenfield

    There's nothing quite like Opening Day. As Pete Rose once said, "It's like Christmas except warmer." It's a reminder that for perhaps inexplicable reasons we still love this crazy game, that we're ready to devote way too many hours over the next seve...

  8. Dan Uggla huge key for Braves

    David Schoenfield

    I have the Nationals as the team to beat in the National League, but give the Braves a fighter's chance of winning the NL East. No, I don't really know what fighter's chance means either, other than "anything can happen." I do believe the Braves h...

  9. Braves and umps blunder their way to loss

    David Schoenfield

    Well, that was insane. Fans of the new system will say this is exactly the kind of excitement baseball needs. Critics will suggest this game sums up everything that's wrong with a one-game playoff series. One bad throw (or three), one mental er...

  10. Links: Youngsters, TV billions, crazy starts

    David Schoenfield

    Stuff ... Baseball America has lists of the 10 youngest players in each full-season league. Mariners pitcher Erasmo Ramirez was the youngest player to make a major league roster, with a May 2, 1990 birthdate. Giancarlo Stanton is still one of the...

  11. NL East showdown: Position rankings

    David Schoenfield

    This is back-of-the-napkin stuff ... but fun back-of-the-napkin stuff. As we wait to see if Prince Fielder does land in Washington, let's check out the state of the NL East. We'll go position by position and rank the players. Then we'll come up with ...

  12. Story complete: Cards rise, Braves fall

    David Schoenfield

    It was a sickening way for the Atlanta Braves' season to die, with Hunter Pence's cracked-bat blooper that didn't even escape the infield but forlornly fell in no-man's land between first baseman Freddie Freeman and second baseman Dan Uggla. There...

  14. Tough slate for Phillies begins with Braves

    David Schoenfield

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it the mismatch of the century, but John Lannan trying to beat Roy Halladay in Philadephia was kind of like Mondale in '84: Not a chance. Halladay was brilliant with 10 strikeouts and no walks and Lannan was the opp...

  15. NL East preseason All-Star team

    David Schoenfield

    I have a feeling the NL East is going to be one rollicking division. The 2011 NL East preseason All-Stars: Catcher -- Brian McCann, Braves. A solid, dependable player who has made the All-Star team all five of his full seasons. And he's still only...
