    David Schoenfield

    What a night. Two clinchers, a no-hit bid into the eighth inning from the Cubs' Jake Arrieta (for the second time this season), a benches-clearing incident between the Yankees and Rays after manager Joe Girardi went a little crazy when Derek Jeter go...

  3. Five things we learned Thursday

    David Schoenfield

    The big story, sadly, was Giancarlo Stanton getting hit by a pitch. In fact, that was a disturbing theme of the night: Mike Trout got hit twice (leading to retaliation from the Angels); Derek Jeter got hit; Starling Marte got hit and had to leave the...

    David Schoenfield

    1. Oakland's pain continues. After Oakland's dramatic ninth-inning rally on Saturday, the Astros returned the favor, scoring twice in the ninth to win 4-3. Especially painful: The Astros didn't even get a hit as Ryan Cook walked three batters and ...

  5. Five things we learned Wednesday

    David Schoenfield

    1. Mike Trout isn't exactly tearing things up right now. As late as July 24, Trout's OPS was over 1.000 -- .309/.396/.606. Since then, 37 games, he's hit .227/.298/.413 with seven home runs and 22 RBIs but also with 47 strikeouts. Some of this is ...

  6. Focus now is on Billy Beane and other GMs

    David Schoenfield

    Brad Pitt played Billy Beane in a movie before he played Derek Jeter or Joe Torre. General managers are this generation's luminaries, scrutinized and critiqued as deeply and emotionally as a team's best player or manager. Players are now viewed as...

  7. All-Star reaction: A groovy ending for Jeter

    David Schoenfield

    One thing about Derek Jeter: He has a way of rising to the occasion. As New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said last year, when Jeter came off the disabled list and hit a home run in his first game back, "He's a movie is what he is." Indeed, Jet...

  8. Robin Yount was just a three-time All-Star

    David Schoenfield

    Robin Yount was a great player: A two-time MVP, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, over 3,000 hits. Yet he made just three All-Star teams in his career. Here are the fewest All-Star selections for position players who debuted after 1933, the year of th...

  9. Don't criticize Derek Jeter!

    David Schoenfield

    So, in my last post I argued that John Farrell made a mistake by naming Derek Jeter his leadoff hitter for the All-Star Game. Actually, I didn't really even make much of an argument, just said that with a lineup of All-Stars to choose from, Farrell e...

  10. Bad decision to bat Derek Jeter leadoff

    David Schoenfield

    No matter what you think about Derek Jeter being elected to start in the All-Star Game, I think we can all agree that he certainly should not be the leadoff batter for the American League. Somehow, with a lineup of the AL's best hitters at his dis...

  12. Welcome to the club, Yoenis Cespedes

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the funny thing about great throws: How many do you remember? Specific throws, I mean? Of course, there's the Bo Jackson throw to nail Harold Reynolds and the Ichiro Suzuki throw early in his first season in Seattle that helped establish his r...

    In this week's Rapid Fire SweetSpot TV segment with Eric Karabell, one topic we discuss is Yasiel Puig. Entering Wednesday, Puig is second in the National League batting race, hitting .346 to Troy Tulowitzki's .373. Can Puig actually win th...

    David Schoenfield

    Some stuff to check out ... Craig Calcaterra of Hardball Talk disagreed with my take on instant replay after the Giants-Pirates game on Tuesday. Fair enough. I can admit I may have missed the boat (the ocean?) on that one. Certainly, if there's...
