  1. Collision rule remains controversial, murky

    David Schoenfield

    We had two plays at home plate on Wednesday, nearly identical in nature, with completely different outcomes and thus apparently different interpretations of Rule 7.13 (2), or as it's better known, the "Home Plate Collision Rule," aka "The Buster Pose...

  2. Wily Peralta knows how to win

    David Schoenfield

    I admit this one kind of snuck up on me: Wily Peralta became the majors' first 14-game winner in the Brewers' 3-1 victory over the Giants on Thursday (Adam Wainwright later matched him). Peralta has won his past five starts and has pitched well in th...

  3. Brewers, Giants both trying to get in gear

    David Schoenfield

    The Giants and Brewers are playing an interesting and important series in Milwaukee. The perception, I suppose, is that both teams are scuffling after playing their best baseball early in the season, and there's definitely truth to that perception. T...

  4. The top 10 starters in baseball

    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...

    David Schoenfield

    Let's look at some of the fallout from the trade deadline -- things people said -- and then make some predictions for what happens the rest of the way. 1. The acquisition of Jon Lester makes the Oakland A's the favorite in the AL West. Predicti...

  6. Trade deadline winners and losers

    David Schoenfield

    All I can say is I hope we get a Tigers-A's postseason series. What a great deadline day, full of intrigue, interesting trades, trades to discuss and argue about, happy fans and dejected fans. The sight of Austin Jackson being pulled from center fiel...

    David Schoenfield

    OK, we're actually well past 81 games, but we tend to divide the season at the All-Star break, even if that's not the true halfway point. Here's my list of the 10 biggest stories of the first half: 1. The rash of Tommy John surgeries. On the he...

  10. Cain finally wins but Giants have questions

    David Schoenfield

    The San Francisco Giants needed this one. Matt Cain certainly needed it. The Giants, mired in a bad stretch that had seen them go 7-20 since June 9 and slide from a 9.5-game lead in the NL West to a one-game deficit, had already lost the first two ga...

  11. Remaining schedules key in NL

    David Schoenfield

    An early theme of the 2014 season was parity: Through the first two months, just about every team could still sell themselves on a potential playoff chase. But the last month changed all that, especially in the National League, which has sorted itsel...

  12. Fifty random thoughts for Monday morning

    David Schoenfield

    Random thoughts for a Monday morning ... 1. As Buster Olney wrote the other day, the Jeff Samardzija-Jason Hammel trade just ramped up the cost for David Price. If the Cardinals want him, they better start with Oscar Taveras. If the Dodgers want ...

  16. 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...
