  4. SweetSpot TV: Ranking the left fielders

    David Schoenfield

    Eric Karabell and myself break down the BBTN 100's top left fielders. Left field was once the domain of sluggers like Greg Luzinski and Jim Rice and Manny Ramirez and it didn't matter if you played any defense as long as you hit 30 home runs and knoc...

  5. Pressure's on Josh Hamilton

    David Schoenfield

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- Josh Hamilton takes batting practice like it's the last time he'll ever step in the cage. Every swing is ferocious and lightning quick, and he's apparently trying to crush every pitch 500 feet. This isn't Wade Boggs up there, hitting ...

  6. Angels' D needs fixing as much as pitching

    David Schoenfield

    After winning five American League West titles in six seasons, the Angels missed the playoffs in 2010 and 2011 and replaced general manager Tony Reagins with Jerry Dipoto. In 2012, they signed Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson as free agents and Mike Tro...

    David Schoenfield

    Earlier, I presented the 10 best decisions of 2013. Here are my 10 worst decisions -- moves that were clearly questionable when made. And, no, all 10 do not involve the Phillies. 10. Angels give $125 million to Josh Hamilton. It's easy to forget t...

  8. As Rangers fold, time for Washington to go

    David Schoenfield

    Remember back in February when Josh Hamilton said, "There are true baseball fans in Texas, but it's not a true baseball town." Maybe that stung a little at the time, but things really sting now. If pain, suffering and agony are requirements needed...

  10. Beltre shows up suspect Orioles pitching

    David Schoenfield

    Hey, it's not like Adrian Beltre hasn't been stiffed for the All-Star Game before. Back in 2004 when he was with the Dodgers, he was hitting .315 with 22 home runs and 56 RBIs at the break but didn't make the All-Star team, getting squeezed out at th...

  11. Thoughts: Can Blue Jays get back in race?

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Tuesday's slate of games ... The Blue Jays belted three home runs off the Rockies' Jeff Francis (why is he still in their rotation?) in an 8-3 win, their seventh in a row. Now 34-36, the Jays are 8.5 out of first place -- althou...

  13. Game of year: A's win, Angels in trouble

    David Schoenfield

    You cannot lose a game like this if you're the Los Angeles Angels, not when leading 6-2 in the eighth inning, not while coming off losing three of four to Seattle, not when your team is struggling and staring at a second straight disastrous April. ...
