    Buster Olney listed his top 10 second basemen, with Robinson Cano, Dustin Pedroia and Jose Altuve ranked 1-2-3. One thing you hear a lot these days is that teams are having trouble finding shortstops who can hit. But the same can be said of second...

  2. Good for Jose Altuve for playing finale

  5. The year Rabbit Maranville hit cleanup

  6. The all-time all-short team

    David Schoenfield

    Jerry Crasnick has a story today on Jose Altuve, the exciting spark plug for the Houston Astros. Yes, I just wanted to write "spark plug." At 5-foot-5, Altuve looks like a player better suited to 1896 than 2012. But the dude can hit. Anyway, here's a...

  7. Jose Altuve can win a batting title -- in 2012

    David Schoenfield

    Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is a 5-foot-5 hitting machine. His strike zone is the size of an iPhone. He looks like Dustin Pedroia's little brother. Opposing pitchers may confuse him for the bat boy. Until he steps to the plate, that ...

  10. Presenting the April All-Stars

    David Schoenfield

    Yep, just another boring April of baseball where nothing exciting happened. We only had one of the greatest April performances of all time. We had a perfect game. We saw the Red Sox blow a 9-0 lead at home to the Yankees -- and lose by six runs. We s...

  11. Rays' offense better than you may realize

    David Schoenfield

    I tweeted a note Thursday morning from our Stats & Information department: Only two walk-off home runs had been hit so far (by Alex Aliva and Todd Helton), the fewest this late in a season since 1982. Sure enough, we got another one later in t...

  12. Over/under: Wins for Astros

    David Schoenfield

    OK, we had to do the Houston Astros at some point. The Astros went 56-106 in 2011 -- and that was with Michael Bourn playing 105 games and Hunter Pence playing 100. Those two are gone and the Astros outfield regulars appear to be J.D. Martinez, Jo...
