    David Schoenfield

    I wasn't around when Roy Halladay announced his retirement at the winter meetings on Dec. 9, so this piece is a little late to the game, but it's also about a few of the pitchers on this year's Hall of Fame ballot -- Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina a...

  9. Is Buchholz cheating? Jack Morris thinks so

    David Schoenfield

    I love a good cheating accusation. I mean -- peanuts, hot dogs, hating the Yankees, pitching inside and cheating: Aren't they all a fundamental part of the game we love? Blue Jays broadcaster Jack Morris thinks Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchhol...

  11. Hall of Fame voting hits a new low

    David Schoenfield

    In 1978, four rookies helped the Tigers win 86 games, ending a stretch of four consecutive losing seasons. That group -- Jack Morris, Alan Trammell, Lou Whitaker and Lance Parrish -- would be the core of a team that would finish over .500 for the nex...

    David Schoenfield

    Some stuff out there on the Internet, Hall of Fame related ... 1. Joe Posnanski with a fun post on the Topps numbering system -- if you collected cards, you remember the best players would get card No. 100 or 300 or whatever, stars would get No...
