  3. Cain finally wins but Giants have questions

    David Schoenfield

  9. Lincecum still has it, at least against Padres

    David Schoenfield

    To be honest, I'm not sure if this says more about Tim Lincecum or the struggling, offensively inept San Diego Padres. I mean, if you were to grade each no-hitter on a degree of difficulty scale from 1 to 10, factoring in the strength of the oppon...

  16. Five reasons the Dodgers have struggled

    David Schoenfield

    The Dodgers enter Monday's game against the Reds with a 33-31 record, good enough to be in the thick of this year's wild-card race but 9.5 games behind the best-in-baseball Giants. Mediocrity may be good enough for now, but it's certainly not what wa...
