  1. 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...

  5. How are playoff rotations lining up?

    David Schoenfield

    Just more than two weeks ago, the Texas Rangers were in pretty good position, leading the A's by 2.5 games in the American League West and coming off a 20-7 August that had them angling for the best record in the league, even with the Red Sox and Tig...

  7. Reds now team to beat in NL Central

    David Schoenfield

    David Schoenfield

  9. Five things to watch this weekend

    David Schoenfield

    The hottest team in baseball is those Cleveland Indians, and we don't need instant replay to prove it. The Tribe has won 10 of 11 with terrific pitching and more than a few home runs. Mark Reynolds leaves nothing to chance with 500-foot blasts. Scott...

    David Schoenfield

    There are some big free agents out there -- Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher, Kyle Lohse, Edwin Jackson, Adam LaRoche and Rafael Soriano being the biggest -- and some trades that may yet to be completed, such as R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays, but let's tak...

  14. Baker's smart move with Latos pays off

    David Schoenfield
