  1. Mariners have three MVP candidates

    David Schoenfield

    Mark Simon has a good piece on Kyle Seager's improved defense for the Mariners this year, improvement that has helped turn Seager into one of the most valuable players in the American League. Too bold of a statement? I don't think so. Here are the...

  2. Santana, Kipnis unsung All-Star candidates

    David Schoenfield

    Is there a more up-and-down team this year than the Cleveland Indians? They started 5-10, but from April 28 through May 20 they went 18-4 to climb into first place. That was followed by seven losses in eight games and then an eight-game losing streak...

  3. Sox, M's remind us why we love baseball

    David Schoenfield

    The game survives. It always survives. A routine Wednesday afternoon game on a gorgeous June day in Seattle between two teams rapidly going nowhere can slog along for 13 uneventful innings -- so uneventful that it was 0-0 heading to the 14th, with...

  4. Updated fantasy rankings are out

    David Schoenfield

    The ESPN Fantasy staff has published its mid-May rankings -- their top 250 players for the rest of the season. It's always interesting to see the different opinions. Everybody agrees on guys like Miguel Cabrera and Ryan Braun, but here are some gu...

  5. Time for Mariners to make tough decisions

    David Schoenfield

    The Seattle Mariners are in that frustrating purgatory of baseball existence: Not good enough to contend, not bad enough to formulate a rebuilding strategy that makes sense. Where are they? What is the master plan? Is there life after Feli...

  6. SweetSpot TV: All-Underrated team

    David Schoenfield

    There is no scientific way to pick an all-underrated team. Well, I suppose there is some formula we could come up with, but that would be about as much fun as watching Brendan Ryan take batting practice. So let's go with an unscientific approach: my ...

  7. Player comparisons you won't believe

    David Schoenfield

    Player comparisons are fun. It's part of talking baseball with our friends: Who do you like better? Who should you take in your fantasy draft? Would you trade this guy for that guy? Here are a couple of comparisons to consider. Player A is Royal...

  9. Angels miss golden opportunity

    David Schoenfield

    Knowing the Oakland A's were down big to the Texas Rangers (and would eventually lose), all the Los Angeles Angels had to do was beat the last-place Seattle Mariners, a team they had defeated 10 times in 15 games this season. This is why only craz...

  10. Did Ichiro curse the city of Seattle?

    David Schoenfield

    From my friends at ESPN Playbook: Seattle hasn't had a drop of rain in 45 days and is approaching its record drought of 51 days, set in 1951. Coincidentally -- or not! -- the drought began the day Ichiro Suzuki was traded to the Yankees. Yankees f...

  11. The Mariners should trade King Felix

    David Schoenfield

    Felix Hernandez made his debut for the Seattle Marines when he was 19 years old. It's easy to fall in love with the kids, of course, especially ones who throw fastballs from heaven and curveballs that opposing hitters would suggest were from hell. ...

  12. Showdown: Dustin Ackley vs. Jason Kipnis

    David Schoenfield

    ESPN Insider contributor Dave Cameron had an analysis of Dustin Ackley over at his USS Mariner site, attempting to ask: Why does Ackley strike out so much? Now, Ackley's strikeout rate isn't in Adam Dunn or Pedro Alvarez territory, but 55 strikeou...

  13. Chat wrap: Trade scenarios, AL bias, more!

    David Schoenfield

    Do the Detroit Tigers need a second baseman more than a starting pitcher? Are the Pittsburgh Pirates for real? Will the Cleveland Indians make a deal? Who should be in the Home Run Derby? Is Mike Trout worthy of MVP discussion? And why were accused o...

  14. Trade idea: Brendan Ryan to Brewers

    David Schoenfield

    Random trade idea that popped into my head during Tuesday's chat: Brendan Ryan from the Seattle Mariners to the Milwaukee Brewers for George Kottaras and Taylor Green. With Alex Gonzalez out for the season, the Brewers need a shortstop. Cesar Iztu...

  15. Five trades that need to be made

    David Schoenfield

    I was at a family function over the weekend and spent much of it talking baseball with my wife's uncle, a huge Yankees fan. The short version of his analysis: He's not too concerned about the state of the team because he's convinced the Yankees will ...
