  1. Ten biggest stories of the first half

    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...

    David Schoenfield

    Longtime reader/chatter Tarek asked the following question in Tuesday's chat: How many of this year's All-Stars will have a better career than Derek Jeter? Now, that's a bit of a layered question when you start factoring in things like World Serie...

  4. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. Veteran junkballers continue to thrive

    David Schoenfield

    Maybe it's not quite fair to call Mark Buehrle, Kyle Lohse and Tim Hudson junkballers, especially because I think that phrase was retired along with Livan Hernandez. But in this day of starting pitchers routinely pumping 95 mph fastballs, these th...

  8. SweetSpot TV: Let's talk King Felix

    David Schoenfield

    Jerry Crasnick has a story on the great Felix Hernandez -- who is starting to become the modern-day Ernie Banks, having never appeared in the postseason. Eric and myself discuss King Felix and whether he's still one of the top five starters in baseba...

  9. Travis Wood is Cubs' best player

    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...

    David Schoenfield

    We don't see these matchups as often you may expect, ace versus ace, best in the game versus best in the game. For the third time in their careers, Felix Hernandez faced Yu Darvish. The first two battles, both in 2012, went to King Felix: He allowed ...

  12. Tales of Saturday's aces

    David Schoenfield

    They say one badge of a true ace is finding a way to succeed when you don't bring your premium stuff or pinpoint location to the mound. In the case of Jose Fernandez, the stuff is always premium, with a fastball that touches the upper 90s when he ...

  13. Mike Trout is good at hitting baseballs

    David Schoenfield

    You could chalk it up to Mike Trout just owning Felix Hernandez. You could chalk it up to Trout, like another former AL West center fielder named Griffey, having a flair for Opening Day theatrics. You could chalk it up to Trout being, you know,...

    David Schoenfield

    PEORIA, AZ -- I arrived in Arizona on Wednesday night just in time to catch a few innings of the Cubs-Mariners night game in Peoria. The Mariners ran out what could very well be their Opening Day lineup, minus Felix Hernandez and Corey Hart: Abrah...
