  1. Daniel Murphy and nonfast base stealers

    David Schoenfield

    New York Mets second baseman Daniel Murphy isn't what I'd call fast. I mean, he's not a catcher or a plodding first baseman, but he won't ever be mistaken for a burner. He has maybe average-ish speed. He was never much of a base stealer. He topped ou...

  2. The big, huge Hall of Fame post, Part 4

    David Schoenfield

    Let's finish up with the 14 players I consider strong Hall of Fame candidates. Of course, if I had a ballot, I could vote for only 10 ... well, that's another essay, my friends. Here is Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. The Hall of Famers 14. Tim R...

  3. Hall of Fame voting hits a new low

    David Schoenfield

    Is this a sad day for baseball? Maybe not. There will be another election next year and one the year after that. I presume onward into the future players will get elected. But this year? The Baseball Writers' Association of America struck out. Nob...

  4. Hall of Fame links: Nobody may get in

    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...

  5. Bagwell fans: Don't hate on Hall voters

    David Schoenfield

    On Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET, the Hall of Fame voting results will be announced. It's possible that Jack Morris makes it in, and maybe Craig Biggio makes it in, and maybe nobody makes it in. One guy who won't make it in is Jeff Bagwell, who...

  6. Best players traded while minor leaguers

    David Schoenfield

    In my chat on Tuesday, we briefly discussed the all-time draft rosters for each team that I compiled. Somebody asked: What's the all-time roster for players drafted and traded away while still minor leaguers? Some of these deals are pretty famous -- ...

  7. Lance Berkman and the Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

    A few quick thoughts on Lance Berkman, who has a mangled-up knee and will miss at least six to eight weeks, and what this may mean for his Hall of Fame chances. My first thought: Other than sabermetric types who dream about walks and OBP, I don't ...

  8. This just in: Cabrera and Fielder are good

    David Schoenfield

    This is what will have American League pitchers and managers waking up in cold sweats all season long: Those stretches when Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder are both raking, eyes bulging as they pummel meaty fastballs over fences and into outfield s...

  9. The Hall of Fame and MVP winners

    David Schoenfield

    With the Hall of Fame voting still on our minds, I thought it would be fun to look at which non-Hall of Famers fared best in MVP voting, and which Hall of Famers have fared worst. Modern MVP voting began in 1931 so we'll focus on players whose car...

  10. Larkin in, but good news for Bagwell, Raines

    David Schoenfield

    It's difficult enough to get three people to agree on anything, let alone 573. So the fact that the Baseball Writers' Association of America managed to push Barry Larkin past the 75 percent threshold to elect him into the Hall of Fame is a minor m...

  11. My Hall of Fame ballot ... if I had one

    David Schoenfield

    I'm not an actual Hall of Fame voter. But if I did have a ballot, here's what it would look like. Yes votes Jeff Bagwell: He's vastly overqualified by even tough Hall of Fame standards, an outstanding all-around player who was one of the very b...

  12. Fred McGriff on the Hall of Fame border

    David Schoenfield

    I used to play my friend Dusty in a Pursue the Pennant simulation league, back when the game was still played with cards and dice. Our battles were famed for our Dennis Martinez-Nolan Ryan pitching duels, but Dusty also had Fred McGriff. He killed me...

  13. Denying Jeff Bagwell would be a travesty

    David Schoenfield

    In spring training of 1991, Bob Ryan of the Boston Globe wrote a glowing profile of Jeff Bagwell, suggesting that the Red Sox would one day lament the trade of Bagwell for 37-year-old relief pitcher Larry Andersen. "Bagwell could be big one that g...

  14. Granderson could achieve historic feat

    David Schoenfield

    In major league history, a player has scored 150 or more runs 46 times, topped by Billy Hamilton's 198 for the 1894 Philadelphia Phillies. You can probably guess that the game was a little different back then: Hamilton posted a .521 on-base percentag...

  15. Ten guys who should be in the Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

    With Jim Thome hitting his 600th home run and the Cubs unveiling a statue last week to honor Ron Santo, the Hall of Fame has been on my mind. I'll go more in-depth on Hall of Fame analysis in the offseason, but here are 10 eligible players who deserv...

  16. Remembering better days for Astros

    David Schoenfield

    I feel bad for Astros fans. They traded two of the four or five good players on the club. It will take two or three years before we can begin to assess the rebuilding project. In the the meantime, the Astros have a chance to join the 2004 Diamondback...
