  3. Five key issues as we reach the quarter pole

    David Schoenfield

    Whenever people say baseball is in trouble I point them to a game like Sunday's Yankees-Brewers contest in Milwaukee, a fun back-and-forth game played before a loud, soldout crowd of over 43,000 fans at Miller Park. Yes, it was the Yankees and it ...

  4. Ten observations on Opening Day games

    David Schoenfield

    The first rule of Opening Day: Don't overreact to Opening Day. So these are merely observations from flipping around watching a bunch of different games. 1. At one point during the Cardinals-Reds opener, Adam Wainwright looked a little perturbed, ...

  5. Liriano simply too good for the Reds

    David Schoenfield

    At the All-Star Game, I asked Joey Votto about the Pittsburgh Pirates. This was back when everyone was still skeptical about the Pirates, or at least a little skeptical given their second-half collapses in 2011 and 2012. "They're 100 percent legit...

  6. Reds-Pirates: What to watch for

    David Schoenfield

    David Schoenfield

    Some quick thoughts on Monday's results and a look forward to Tuesday. Inning of the day: I wrote about Ned Yost's tactical errors in the ninth inning of the Royals' 4-3 loss to the Indians. According to coolstandings.com, the Royals' playoff odds...

  8. Reds now team to beat in NL Central

    David Schoenfield

    The wild-card game is, of course, a bit mad. Or maybe completely mad. Telling teams they have to play 162 games to get into the playoffs and then one game to stay alive is akin to telling two NFL teams they've made the playoffs after 16 regular-seaso...

  10. Don't laugh: Liriano a Cy Young candidate

    David Schoenfield

    Francisco Liriano pitches with a certain violence to his delivery, as if he's trying to prove that you can, indeed, give 105 percent effort. He pitches from the third-base side of the rubber and falls off the mound, his left leg swinging across his b...

  11. These Pirates might actually be for real

    David Schoenfield

    As sports fans, most of us are usually simultaneously hopeful and cynical when it comes to our teams. We think every first-round pick or highly rated prospect will become a star, that this will be the season, that a two-week hot streak means ...

  15. White Sox take good risk with Liriano
