  1. Ichiro Suzuki, Spanish trash-talker

    David Schoenfield

    Fun piece from Brad Lefton of the Wall Street Journal from a few days ago that I just saw: Ichiro Suzuki, first-class Spanish trash-talker. From the article:Ichiro says he cannot carry a conversation in Spanish, which he has gradually picked up du...

  2. The best rookie seasons of all time

    David Schoenfield

    The reason for doing this piece should be pretty obvious: Masahiro Tanaka is 11-2 with a 2.11 ERA, leading the American League in wins and ERA. He's not just the clear best rookie so far but a Cy Young and MVP contender. Tanaka makes his 16th star...

  3. Welcome to the club, Yoenis Cespedes

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the funny thing about great throws: How many do you remember? Specific throws, I mean? Of course, there's the Bo Jackson throw to nail Harold Reynolds and the Ichiro Suzuki throw early in his first season in Seattle that helped establish his r...

  4. Better career, Ichiro or Jeter?

    David Schoenfield

    I suspect a lot of Yankees fans are going to view this as just another attack on Derek Jeter, a grouchy anti-New York writer going all fancy with his statistics and ripping a legend. That's not my intention. I've written before that Jeter deserves...

  5. Ten predictions for the stretch run

    David Schoenfield

    When Alex Rodriguez got caught off second base on Ichiro Suzuki's line drive back to the pitcher in the 10th inning, I was sure the Tampa Bay Rays would win. When Joba Chamberlain walked Jose Molina leading off the bottom of the 10th, I was sure t...

  6. Active players who will be Hall of Famers

    David Schoenfield

    Albert Pujols was placed on the disabled list on Sunday, sort of the exclamation point to the Los Angeles Angels' debacle of a season. Sunday was Hall of Fame induction day -- you may have missed it, considering the lone player elected played his fin...

  7. Thoughts: Tigers play ugliest game of year

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Tuesday's games ... It can happen to the best of teams, that one game where everything goes wrong. Mariners fans still get depressed over a 2001 loss to Cleveland in which Seattle blew a 12-0 lead, a loss that would cost the Mar...

  8. Twenty-seven reasons Yankees will collapse

    David Schoenfield

    Confession: I spent all offseason believing the Yankees would still rank among the American League's elite teams in 2013. After all, despite the woeful hitting in the postseason, this was still a team that won 95 games and had the second-best run dif...

  10. Never count out the New York Yankees

    David Schoenfield

    This will be the year. How long have we been saying this about the New York Yankees? This will be the year. Too old, too many bloated contracts, not enough young talent coming up through the minors and now ownership that -- horror of horrors! -- s...

  12. On Showalter's intentional walk of Cano

    David Schoenfield

    In the seventh inning of Game 2 on Monday, with Ichiro Suzuki at second base and two outs and the Orioles leading 3-2, Buck Showalter decided to intentionally walk Robinson Cano to face Nick Swisher. On Twitter I wrote, "Let the second guessing begin...

  13. Would you root for the Yankees?

    David Schoenfield

    Mariners fans love Ichiro Suzuki. They do not love the New York Yankees. (Damn you, David Justice!) So I was little surprised when my mom told me she'd like to see Ichiro play in the World Series. He's never played in one, of course, so I can see ...

  14. Did Ichiro curse the city of Seattle?

    David Schoenfield

    From my friends at ESPN Playbook: Seattle hasn't had a drop of rain in 45 days and is approaching its record drought of 51 days, set in 1951. Coincidentally -- or not! -- the drought began the day Ichiro Suzuki was traded to the Yankees. Yankees f...

  16. Ten important things to know on Aug. 13

    David Schoenfield

    You have to love August baseball. This is when the grind of the long season settles in, when depth becomes even more important, when pitchers have to pitch through fatigue and soreness and maybe a little pain. It's when we find out if the pretenders ...
