  3. Daniel Murphy and nonfast base stealers

    David Schoenfield

    New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy isn't what I'd call fast. I mean, he's not a catcher or a plodding first baseman, but he won't ever be mistaken for a burner. He has maybe average-ish speed. He was never much of a base stealer. He topped ou...

    David Schoenfield

  5. Lineup discussion: NL East

    David Schoenfield

    Let's spend the next two days examining lineups. We spend a lot of time debating and arguing about lineups, more so because it's fun than important. Not important? Well, sure, there's some importance to setting an optimal lineup, but statistical stud...

  8. A look at non-roster invitees: NL

    David Schoenfield

    Here's a look at some of the interesting non-roster invites to National League camps. OK, mildly interesting. Even if these players don't crack the big league roster out of spring training, many will wind up as Triple-A insurance during the season. ...

  9. Payroll and wins: The past five years

    David Schoenfield

  11. Offseason bullpen grades: National League

    David Schoenfield

  12. Tank of the day: Mariners

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the funny thing about "tanking": Sometimes even replacement-level pitchers can do a good job. For instance, the New York Mets sent Daisuke Matsuzaka and his 5.75 ERA to the mound on Sunday against the Cleveland Indians. That's not his 2013 ERA...

  13. Why we'll see tanking in September

    David Schoenfield

    The New York Mets' rotation right now includes Daisuke Matsuzaka, who owns the worst ERA since 2009 of any pitcher with at least 300 innings. They just signed Aaron Harang, released by the Mariners after posting a 9.12 ERA in August. Why would a t...

  14. Ten predictions for the stretch run

    David Schoenfield

    When Alex Rodriguez got caught off second base on Ichiro Suzuki's line drive back to the pitcher in the 10th inning, I was sure the Tampa Bay Rays would win. When Joba Chamberlain walked Jose Molina leading off the bottom of the 10th, I was sure t...

    There's a team in New York that's worth watching these days, one that has struggled to score runs much of the season, has been entangled in some legal issues and is in need of a shortstop. I'm talking, of course, about the New York Mets. Just l...

  16. Time to put a fork in the Giants' season

    David Schoenfield

    Matt Cain threw 36 pitches on Wednesday afternoon, most of them ineffective. He faced seven batters, walked three of them, allowed hits to two more of them, threw just 18 strikes and got yanked before the San Francisco Giants even batted. When man...
