    David Schoenfield

    Random thoughts for a Monday morning ... 1. As Buster Olney wrote the other day, the Jeff Samardzija-Jason Hammel trade just ramped up the cost for David Price. If the Cardinals want him, they better start with Oscar Taveras. If the Dodgers want ...

  8. The best rookie seasons of all time

    David Schoenfield

    The reason for doing this piece should be pretty obvious: Masahiro Tanaka is 11-2 with a 2.11 ERA, leading the American League in wins and ERA. He's not just the clear best rookie so far but a Cy Young and MVP contender. Tanaka makes his 16th star...

  9. Clayton Kershaw: Appreciate the brilliance

    David Schoenfield

  10. Kershaw's no-hitter most dominant ever

    David Schoenfield

    At one point in the middle innings of Wednesday's game, as Clayton Kershaw was chewing up Rockies batters like a puppy with a piece of rawhide, a writer tweeted out a Dodgers scouting report of Kershaw from his days at Highland Park High School in Da...

  12. Welcome to the club, Yoenis Cespedes

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the funny thing about great throws: How many do you remember? Specific throws, I mean? Of course, there's the Bo Jackson throw to nail Harold Reynolds and the Ichiro Suzuki throw early in his first season in Seattle that helped establish his r...

  13. Welch versus Reggie was a classic moment

    David Schoenfield

    It's not quite my first World Series memory, but all these years later, I can still see Bob Welch striking out Reggie Jackson. It may seem strange that a showdown from 36 years ago is still remembered so vividly, especially because it was only Gam...

  14. Five reasons the Dodgers have struggled

    David Schoenfield

    The Dodgers enter Monday's game against the Reds with a 33-31 record, good enough to be in the thick of this year's wild-card race but 9.5 games behind the best-in-baseball Giants. Mediocrity may be good enough for now, but it's certainly not what wa...

  16. Chris Sale may be the best starter in MLB

    David Schoenfield

    Who is the best starting pitcher in baseball right now? I think you can make a strong case for Chris Sale, who maybe isn't the first guy who pops into your head, in part because he did miss a few starts with a tender elbow -- technically a strained f...
