  8. Leyland's legacy: Borderline Hall of Famer

    David Schoenfield

    One of the things I liked best about Jim Leyland is that he never really gave you a song-and-dance response to questions. He knew that players win games and that players with the most talent win the most games. My favorite example of this came bac...

  9. Cabrera, Fielder fail in decisive at-bats

    David Schoenfield

    You like offense? Home runs make you happy and strikeouts make you sad? Then this is not the postseason for you. But if you like dominant pitching and fastballs in the upper 90s and splitters that dive like Italian soccer players and changeups tha...

  10. Tigers better even with hobbled Cabrera

    David Schoenfield

    I'll be honest: I never quite got the love affair with the 2011 and 2012 Detroit Tigers. They were good teams winning bad divisions, top-heavy with stars, but the sum of the parts was never as good as the national media made them out to be. I mean...

  12. Tigers' offense finally delivers in clutch

    David Schoenfield

    For all the consternation over Jose Valverde, part of the Detroit Tigers' late-inning woes has been the failure of the offense to deliver big hits late in close games. So when Victor Martinez walked leading off the bottom of the ninth Thur...

  13. Miggy unstoppable, but what about Tigers?

    David Schoenfield

    Well, Miguel Cabrera was due. I mean, he'd gone a whole four games without a home run. He'd driven in just two runs in his previous eight games. He was probably taking extra batting practice before Sunday's game. The bum. Cabrera was a one-man ...

  14. Which contender is most collapse-proof?

    David Schoenfield

    Eric Karabell and I briefly raised this question a couple weeks ago on a SweetSpot TV: Which team is most collapse-proof? Or, to rephrase it, which is least likely to go all 2012 Red Sox on us? At the time, we mentioned the Reds, but I'm not so sure ...
