  1. Random thoughts and notes: NL West

    David Schoenfield

    Los Angeles Dodgers: Andrew Friedman just acquired his old Tampa Bay reliever, Joel Peralta, for hard-throwing righty Juan Dominguez. ... Peralta is coming off a 4.41 ERA as his hit rate increased. He's always been homer-prone as he's an extreme flyb...

  3. A short history of the 40-homer club

    David Schoenfield

    On Tuesday, Nelson Cruz of the Orioles hit his 40th home run, saving us from the deprivation of not having a 40-homer guy for the first time since 1982. That year Reggie Jackson of the Angels and Gorman Thomas of the Brewers tied for the major league...

  4. Big win for Mariners, King Felix

    David Schoenfield

    Mariners fans had reason to be worried before Wednesday's game against the A's. Felix Hernandez, the best pitcher in the majors this year not named Clayton Kershaw, had scuffled through three mediocre starts, including a four-homer outing in his prev...

  5. Giancarlo Stanton still has shot at MVP

    David Schoenfield

    Giancarlo Stanton leads the National League in both home runs and RBIs, both by sizable margins -- five more homers than Anthony Rizzo, who is currently out with a back injury (and nine more than the No. 3 guys, Justin Upton and Lucas Duda ), and nin...

  6. Are we lacking all-around outfielders?

    David Schoenfield

    From Tuesday's chat session: Steve (Plantation, FL) I was talking to my brother about outfielders, and I said "I want my left fielder to have a .350 OBP, 30 doubles, 20 homers, play solid D, and be a good baserunner." Then I asked, "How many play...

  7. 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 ...

  8. That guy in the Fister trade may be good

    David Schoenfield

    Tuesday was a great night of baseball. At various times, I watched parts of Reds-Red Sox, Mets-Marlins, Astros-Tigers, Dodgers-Nationals, Blue Jays-Phillies, Yankees-Angels and Mariners-A's, making it through to the final out on the West Coast. Th...

  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

    The Diamondbacks and Dodgers kick off the regular season in Australia with a game that starts Saturday morning at 1 a.m. West Coast time, so let's do an over/under on D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. Goldschmidt hit .286 with 20 home runs i...

  11. Bailey deal weakens 2015 free agent class

    David Schoenfield

    I'd say the baseball industry is doing pretty well if the Cincinnati Reds -- the small-market Reds, playing in a metro market smaller than Orlando or San Antonio or Sacramento -- can afford to sign a pitcher with a 4.25 career ERA to a $105 million c...

  12. Cano hopefully first move of many for M's

    David Schoenfield

    Well, they did it. The Seattle Mariners have reportedly agreed to a 10-year, $240 million deal with Robinson Cano, the first big-time free agent the Mariners have signed since snagging Adrian Beltre after his 48-homer season in 2004. (Sorry. Chone Fi...

  14. Playoff watch: Orioles blow late lead

    David Schoenfield

  16. Here's Billy! Hamilton's SB big for Reds

    David Schoenfield

    I like the expanded rosters of September. There, I said it. Of course it's completely illogical to play under different rules in September than the previous five months. Of course it's a little ridiculous to see dugouts crammed excessively full with ...
