  1. Travis Wood is Cubs' best player

    David Schoenfield

    Is that such an outlandish headline? I'm not sure it is. Wood did it all in Monday's 5-1 win over the hapless Diamondbacks, pitching seven innings with nine strikeouts and no walks and going 2-for-3 with a double and three-run homer. Here's a fun twe...

  4. Tales of Saturday's aces

    David Schoenfield

    They say one badge of a true ace is finding a way to succeed when you don't bring your premium stuff or pinpoint location to the mound. In the case of Jose Fernandez, the stuff is always premium, with a fastball that touches the upper 90s when he ...

  5. Mike Trout is good at hitting baseballs

    David Schoenfield

    You could chalk it up to Mike Trout just owning Felix Hernandez. You could chalk it up to Trout, like another former AL West center fielder named Griffey, having a flair for Opening Day theatrics. You could chalk it up to Trout being, you know,...

  6. Javier Baez shows off his sick bat speed

    David Schoenfield

    PEORIA, AZ -- I arrived in Arizona on Wednesday night just in time to catch a few innings of the Cubs-Mariners night game in Peoria. The Mariners ran out what could very well be their Opening Day lineup, minus Felix Hernandez and Corey Hart: Abrah...

  7. Active players who will be Hall of Famers

    David Schoenfield

    Albert Pujols was placed on the disabled list on Sunday, sort of the exclamation point to the Los Angeles Angels' debacle of a season. Sunday was Hall of Fame induction day -- you may have missed it, considering the lone player elected played his fin...

    The big questions for this season's All-Star selections as we headed into Saturday's selection show: Would Yasiel Puig make it? Who backs up Miguel Cabrera at third base in the American League from a strong field of candidates? Who represents the Ast...

    Quick thoughts on Thursday's games ... Down 7-0 to Felix Hernandez, the Angels pulled off the comeback of the season to win 10-9. Needless to say, this kind of thing doesn't happen every day. Hernandez had been given a seven-run lead 17 previous ...

  11. Mariners pair top 1-2 pitching duo in majors

    David Schoenfield

    Major league baseball is so deep in quality starting pitching that you could probably make the case for nine or 10 different combinations as the best pair going right now. Here are my top five: 1. Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma, Mariners Thi...

  12. Best pitchers never to start in postseason

    David Schoenfield

    Watching Felix Hernandez the other night prompted me to look up the pitchers with the highest career Wins Above Replacement who never started a postseason game. Hernandez's career WAR is 36.3 and I had no idea if he would top the list or even be near...

    David Schoenfield

    There are worse ways to spend a Sunday afternoon than watching Yu Darvish and Justin Verlander pitch. Especially if you're not at the ballpark and you can set up a laptop outside, put up your feet, soak in those first warm rays of early May and imagi...

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Monday's action ... Just over a week ago the Brewers were 2-8 and looked horrible. Now they've won eight in a row after beating the Padres 7-1 on Monday, as they lit up Jason Marquis for five runs in the first inning (Ryan Braun...
