  1. Five things we learned Monday

    David Schoenfield

    1. The A's can't get Sean Doolittle back soon enough. For the second day in a row, the A's blew a ninth-inning lead, as Tyler Flowers of the White Sox homered off Eric O'Flaherty with two outs to tie the game and then homered again in the 12th off...

  2. Big win for Mariners, King Felix

    David Schoenfield

  3. The Felix dilemma: How much rest?

    David Schoenfield

    Remember way back in 2008, when CC Sabathia was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers and made his final three starts of the season on three days' rest, helping the Brewers to their first playoff appearance since 1982? That seems like a generation ago. ...

  5. SweetSpot TV: Felix, Kershaw for MVP

    David Schoenfield

    Eric and I discuss Felix Hernandez and Clayton Kershaw as MVP candidates. Justin Verlander won in 2011 but that's a rarity for a pitcher. Could both guys win MVP honors this year? (For an excellent breakdown of the history of pitchers as MVP cand...

    David Schoenfield

    Last week, after Corey Kluber dominated the Mariners with an 85-pitch shutout, I rashly tweeted that Kluber is one of the best 10 starting pitchers in the game. That seemed to stir things up a bit on Twitter, and Giants fans were especially angered w...

  11. 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...

  13. 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...

    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...
