    David Schoenfield

    Longtime reader/chatter Tarek asked the following question in Tuesday's chat: How many of this year's All-Stars will have a better career than Derek Jeter? Now, that's a bit of a layered question when you start factoring in things like World Serie...

  3. King Felix more dominant than ever

    David Schoenfield

    It may not be quite accurate to suggest Felix Hernandez is pitching the best baseball of his career, considering he's won a Cy Young Award, pitched a perfect game and has been one of the game's best starters since 2009. But Felix Hernandez is pitc...

    David Schoenfield

    A glance through Sunday's results and some quick thoughts ... at least one for every team! A's 11, Orioles 1: I wrote about Manny Machado's embarrassing episode here. How much of this is frustration by Machado? While he has had four two-hit gam...

  5. Chris Sale may be the best starter in MLB

    David Schoenfield

    Who is the best starting pitcher in baseball right now? I think you can make a strong case for Chris Sale, who maybe isn't the first guy who pops into your head, in part because he did miss a few starts with a tender elbow -- technically a strained f...

  6. SweetSpot TV: Let's talk King Felix

    David Schoenfield

    Jerry Crasnick has a story on the great Felix Hernandez -- who is starting to become the modern-day Ernie Banks, having never appeared in the postseason. Eric and myself discuss King Felix and whether he's still one of the top five starters in baseba...

  7. 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...

  8. Running diary: King Felix vs. Darvish

    David Schoenfield

    We don't see these matchups as often you may expect, ace versus ace, best in the game versus best in the game. For the third time in their careers, Felix Hernandez faced Yu Darvish. The first two battles, both in 2012, went to King Felix: He allowed ...

  10. 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 ...

  11. 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,...

  12. 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...

  13. 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...

  16. Thoughts: Angels rally, Puig for HR Derby

    David Schoenfield

    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 ...
