  1. 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...

  6. Clearing the bases: Youkilis traded

    David Schoenfield

    First base: Goodbye, Youk. Kudos to White Sox general manager Kenny Williams for not waiting until late July to shore up his team's third-base problem. White Sox third basemen (mostly Brent Morel and Orlando Hudson) had combined to hit .167 with one ...

  8. AL East position rankings: O's seek respect

    David Schoenfield

    "Show us some respect," yell Baltimore Orioles fans. Or maybe they're politely demanding. But I've seen the complaints in the Power Rankings comments, read the emails sent to "Baseball Today," been asked the question in my chats: Why doesn't anyone b...

  10. Red Sox in shambles as Beckett stumbles

    David Schoenfield

    We drown in numbers and statistics these days, but here's one that sums up the crumbling state of the Boston Red Sox quite eloquently: Following Josh Beckett's implosion on Thursday night, Red Sox starters have now allowed five-plus runs in 14 starts...

  12. Over/under: Wins for Red Sox

    David Schoenfield

    The 2011 Boston Red Sox didn't have any issues scoring runs -- 875, most in the majors. And that was with Carl Crawford having a bad season, Kevin Youkilis missing 42 games and J.D. Drew doing next to nothing. That means, of course, the pitchin...

    David Schoenfield

    Welcome to Cleveland. It's a foggy, misty day, something out of a Stephen King novel. The lights are on, the stands are empty and it looks like a completely miserable day to be playing baseball. Especially if you're 0-5. Fausto Carmona is start...

  16. You might want to cover your eyes

    David Schoenfield

    Cleveland Indians fans, I know you have it in you. I know it won't be easy. I know your owner is a cheapskate and you traded away CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee and nobody thinks your team is any good and you've basically thrown out baseball with the Mond...
