  4. Brett Gardner versus Nelson Cruz

    David Schoenfield

    I heard a couple of radio guys -- one of them a former major league pitcher -- on Sunday discussing the Brett Gardner contract, and they were a little incredulous that Gardner could get a four-year, $52 million contract from the Yankees while Nelson ...

    David Schoenfield

    David Schoenfield

    "It ain't over 'til it's over." -- Yogi Berra on the 1973 National League East pennant race For a few minutes on Monday, you had the feeling the Chicago White Sox were getting a little bit closer to over. Justin Verlander had done his job for the De...

  7. Ten important notes on 2013 schedule

    David Schoenfield

    It seems a little early to be talking about 2013, but the schedule was released Wednesday, so a few quick thoughts: 1. Interleague play -- every day! With the Astros moving to the American League and giving us 15 teams in each league, this of c...

  9. Dave Kingman and Fenway Park

    David Schoenfield

    After my little note about the year Dave Kingman led the National League in home runs and still finished 24th in the league in slugging percentage, my colleague Joe DeMartino suggested I look up Kingman's career numbers at Fenway Park. Before I do...

  10. Is Adrian Gonzalez back on track?

    David Schoenfield

    Among the many issues with the Boston Red Sox, one that received little attention was the struggles of Adrian Gonzalez. An MVP candidate in 2011 when he hit .338/.410/.548 and hit 27 home runs while leading the American League with 213 hits, Gonzalez...

  11. Have we seen the last of Vladimir Guerrero?

    David Schoenfield

    Back in February of 1997, I owned the second selection in the rookie draft of my fantasy league. It was a little bittersweet, because Andruw Jones was the obvious No. 1 pick. If you remember, Jones was the 19-year-old wunderkind who had hit .400 in t...

  13. 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...

  14. Opening Day observations, part 2

    David Schoenfield

    1. Should the Brewers panic about John Axford? I think they should be nervous. He was legit last season, with 11.8 K's per nine, but he may have been a little lucky by allowing just one home run. His career minor league BB/9 rate was 6.0, which he cu...
