  1. Chat wrap: Uggla, Braves, Nationals, more

    David Schoenfield

    Well, needless to say we talked about Dan Uggla in Tuesday's chat. Braves and Nationals fans got into a heated war of worlds. We discussed instant replay. Plus Miguel Cabrera's slow start, Mike Trout's lack of steal, whether pitchers are cheating and...

  2. Things we've learned after one series

    David Schoenfield

    Overreact after one series? Of course we're going to overreact! We're baseball fans. It's no fun if we just spout things like "small sample size" and "check back in two months." So, what have we learned after one series? Here are a few trends and thi...

  3. Why the Mariners will be the surprise team

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the deal: It's distinctly possible I am inherently biased. After all, as most of you know, I am a Mariners fan since the days of Ruppert Jones and Danny Meyer and as this recent article at Baseball Prospectus argued, we all tend to overrate ou...

  4. Chat wrap: Braun, Posey, best pitches

    David Schoenfield

    Here's Tuesday's chat wrap. Was it OK that Brewers fans cheered Ryan Braun? Is Jose Fernandez's slider the most unhittable pitch in the game? Should Buster Posey be mentioned in the same breath as Mike Trout? Plus much more!...

  5. New rule on collisions good for the game

    David Schoenfield

    I can hear the old-timers grumbling from their graves. Back in my day, we not only were allowed to plow over a catcher, we had to because the dirt around home plate was actually rocks and broken glass from beer bottles the fans used to throw at th...

  6. What Jeter meant to Yankees fans

    David Schoenfield

    After Derek Jeter announced Wednesday that he will retire at the end of the 2014 season, I saw a tweet from the Atlanta Braves asking if Freddie Freeman is the face of baseball, the implication being that Jeter was that face and the position will be ...

  9. Orioles look like a team that will decline

    David Schoenfield

    Congratulations, Orioles fans, your team finally made a major offseason move! You signed Delmon Young. (Crickets.) Yes, Orioles fans probably have the right to be more furious about their team's offseason than any other group of fans. After a s...

  10. Don't hold DH status against Thomas, Edgar

    David Schoenfield

    When Frank Thomas first arrived in the majors, he was a force of nature unlike anybody baseball fans had seen in a long time. There had been big guys before, of course, big guys who certainly intimidated opposing pitchers with their size and made ...

  11. O's sign Balfour but just spinning wheels

    David Schoenfield

  12. Why the Pirates are likely to decline in 2014

    David Schoenfield

    I didn't want to have to write this post. After all, I didn't have a specific rooting interest outside of my lousy hometown team, and like many fans, I fell a little bit in love with the Pittsburgh Pirates and their rise to prominence this past seaso...

  13. Fans don't show Greg Maddux respect

    David Schoenfield

    I'll admit the results of this SportsNation poll shocked me: Only 70 percent of respondents -- with more than 33,000 votes cast -- believe Greg Maddux should be elected to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot. And you thought the BBWAA had tough s...

  16. Rare thing: Two best teams in World Series

    David Schoenfield

    There was a lot of consternation on Twitter last night -- at least among those people I follow -- about a Cardinals-Red Sox World Series, primarily because both franchises have won two World Series in the past decade and diehard fans prefer to see ne...
