  1. Half-full, half-empty: David Robertson

    David Schoenfield

    When Mariano Rivera called it a career after the 2013 season, David Robertson graduated from eighth-inning reliever to closer. In 2014, he went 4-5 with 39 saves and a 3.08 ERA while allowing a .192 batting average. This fall, he turned down the Yank...

  2. David Robertson to the Mets?

    David Schoenfield

    This is a bit of a follow-up post to the Mets' signing of Michael Cuddyer. In my chat today, a reader asked if this could possibly mean the Mets will sign another free agent who received a qualifying offer, which would mean they would lose their f...

  3. Look for Rockies to trade Carlos Gonzalez

    David Schoenfield

    Most of the $15.3 million qualifying offers extended to free agents made sense and weren't surprising -- Max Scherzer, James Shields, Nelson Cruz, Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez, Francisco Liriano, Russell Martin, David Robertson, Ervin Santana, Melk...

  5. SweetSpot's 2013 AL All-Star team

    David Schoenfield

    Here are my choices for the 2013 American League All-Star team: Catcher: Joe Mauer, Twins (.324/.404/.476, 11 HRs, 47 RBIs, 5.2 WAR) There's not a real clear choice, as Mauer played just 75 of his 113 games behind the plate, but he's the best hit...

  6. SweetSpot TV: Best relief tandems

    Here's the thing: There are a lot of good relief duos out there. Eric Karabell and myself discuss five of the best ones in the video, but there are others we left out: --The Pirates. Closer Jason Grilli is out right now, but he and Mark Melancon h...

    The big questions for this season's All-Star selections as we headed into Saturday's selection show: Would Yasiel Puig make it? Who backs up Miguel Cabrera at third base in the American League from a strong field of candidates? Who represents the Ast...

  8. Let's hope Rivera hasn't thrown final pitch

    David Schoenfield

    Imagine being the best in the world at something. Doesn't matter what it is. The best chef or painter or auto mechanic or blogger or cancer researcher or whatever. That title, of course, would be under dispute. And if bequeathed such a label, ther...

  9. Welcome back, Carlos Pena

    David Schoenfield

    If my math is correct, the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees still have 17 games against each other. The Rays and Boston Red Sox have 18 games against each other. The Red Sox and Yankees have 18 games against each other. And all three teams have 18...

  10. The day after: Yankees postscript

    David Schoenfield

    I spent last night watching the postgame coverage on YES. I listened to Yankees fans calling in to sports-talk radio as I drove in to work this morning. I have the Mike Francesa show on YES on right now as I write this. Love the Yankees or hate the Y...

  13. All-Star diary: Not one for the ages

    David Schoenfield

    Despite everything that is so wrong about it, I still like the All-Star Game. Maybe it's the fan in me that still remembers the 1987 game, when Seattle's Mark Langston came on and pitched two perfect innings with three strikeouts, causing Vin Scully ...

  14. Robertson on historic strikeout pace

    David Schoenfield

    One of the most unheralded performers of the season has been Yankees reliever David Robertson, who is 1-0 with a 1.15 ERA and 15 holds. Wonder how the Yankees feel now about that $35 million they gave Rafael Soriano. Most impressively, Robertson is s...

  15. Offense down, value of bullpens up

    David Schoenfield

    The Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox battled for 11 innings on Monday night, and in the end, Carl Crawford's double high off the Green Monster plated Jose Iglesias with the winning run in a 2-1 victory. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, apparently w...
