  1. Did Pirates mess up by starting Cole?

    David Schoenfield

    You can't fault the way Gerrit Cole pitched Sunday for the Pittsburgh Pirates: Seven innings, four hits, one run, 12 strikeouts. But it wasn't enough as Johnny Cueto throttled the Pirates' lineup, and the Reds scored three runs in the eighth off the ...

  2. Five things we learned Tuesday

    David Schoenfield

    The main thing we learned was clarity: With Kansas City winning and Seattle losing, we basically know the 10 playoff teams now, barring some sort of miracle as the Royals (and Athletics) are three up on the Mariners with five games remaining. The Dod...

  3. Pirates' win feels like September baseball

    David Schoenfield

    I'm not sure it was the Pittsburgh Pirates' biggest win of the season, but watching from afar it sure felt like it. It may not even have been Ike Davis' biggest pinch-hit home run of the season -- back on April 5, he hit a walk-off grand slam to beat...

  4. Martin Maldonado, player of the month!

    David Schoenfield

    It was caught the month for Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado. Consider: He literally knocked the cover off the ball against the Pirates a couple weeks ago. He was in the middle of the Carlos Gomez-Gerrit Cole spat and cold-cocked Pirat...

  5. Gomez deserves suspension after brawl

    David Schoenfield

    The National League Central was shaping up as a season-long bloodbath, and now we have some bad blood as well between the Milwaukee Brewers and Pittsburgh Pirates to spice things up. I suppose there will be those out there decrying the decline of civ...

  6. Wednesday morning random thoughts

    David Schoenfield

    A few quick thoughts as we continue to count down to Opening Day ... It's always fun to see 22-5 scores, even in spring training -- especially when the game happens in Florida and not Arizona. That was the Pirates beating the Blue Jays as they ...

  7. Rookie starters in do-or-die games

    David Schoenfield

    Oakland A's manager Bob Melvin chose rookie Sonny Gray over veteran Bartolo Colon to start Game 5 of the American League Division Series against the Tigers -- making Gray the third rookie to start what I call an "ultimate" game this postseason (a do-...

  8. Adam Wainwright too good for Pirates

    David Schoenfield

    Pirates-Cardinals. Game 5. Sounds like a good time for our first running diary of the postseason. Two key stats heading into the game: (1) Adam Wainwright has that great curveball -- batters hit just .171 against it in the regular season -- and th...

  9. Why Cole will challenge Beltran

    David Schoenfield

    One of the key matchups in tonight's Game 5 between the Pirates and Cardinals is rookie starter Gerrit Cole versus Carlos Beltran, who is doing his usual Babe Ruth impersonation in the playoffs. While some may believe Cole should pitch as carefull...

  10. Hanley great, Braves awful, Fredi messes up

    David Schoenfield

    Well, not every rookie starter can be expected to deliver a performance like Gerrit Cole did for the Pirates or Sonny Gray did for the A's. There isn't a whole lot to say about the Dodgers' 13-6 pounding of the Braves in Game 3 of their NL Divisio...

  14. Pirates need to make big pitch for Stanton

    David Schoenfield

    The Pittsburgh Pirates need Giancarlo Stanton. They have the starting pitching, even though right now they have an entire rotation on the disabled list. They have the bullpen, a key reason the Pirates lead the majors with 12 shutouts. They play ex...

  15. Thoughts: Can Blue Jays get back in race?

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Tuesday's slate of games ... The Blue Jays belted three home runs off the Rockies' Jeff Francis (why is he still in their rotation?) in an 8-3 win, their seventh in a row. Now 34-36, the Jays are 8.5 out of first place -- althou...

  16. Cole could be key factor in NL Central race

    David Schoenfield

    As I sat down to watch Gerrit Cole make his major league debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday, I thought of Andy Benes. Like Cole, Benes was a big hard-throwing right-hander who was the first overall pick in the draft. I wondered: W...
