  1. Don't forget about underrated Giants pen

    David Schoenfield

    Here's a number that may or may not surprise you. We know how great the Royals' late-inning bullpen group has been all season. Indeed, the Royals are 65-4 when leading entering the seventh inning. But the Giants, even though Sergio Romo lost his c...

  2. How the A's lost the wild-card game

    David Schoenfield

    This is supposed to about the five key things that decided this game. There were about 20 of those. Or 50. Or 100. I lost track somewhere there in the 10th or 11th inning of one of the craziest, wildest, most improbable baseball games I can remember ...

  4. SweetSpot TV: All about Ned Yost

    David Schoenfield

    So, Eric and I taped this before Tuesday's game for the Royals, which saw Jarrod Dyson picked off second base in the ninth inning when Ned Yost may or may not have ordered a double steal. The Royals lost 4-2 to the Tigers and are now tied for first p...

  5. Does anybody want to win the NL East?

    David Schoenfield

    As I write this, the Atlanta Braves are playing the Mariners in an afternoon game in Seattle. Did you see how the Braves lost their seventh game in a row on Monday? After a hit by pitch and base hit in the fourth inning, Logan Morrison singled to lef...

  6. Cain finally wins but Giants have questions

    David Schoenfield

    The San Francisco Giants needed this one. Matt Cain certainly needed it. The Giants, mired in a bad stretch that had seen them go 7-20 since June 9 and slide from a 9.5-game lead in the NL West to a one-game deficit, had already lost the first two ga...

    David Schoenfield

    On June 10, the Tampa Bay Rays lost 1-0 to the Cardinals, their third straight game getting shut out. They dropped to 24-42, the worst record in baseball, 15 games out of first place in the AL East. The David Price trade rumors heated up. The Rays...

  8. Toronto's fearsome threesome on fire

    David Schoenfield

    The Blue Jays lost a tough one on Thursday, a fun back-and-forth game with the Royals that the Jays ultimately blew when Jose Reyes shanked a throw to first base on a routine grounder in the ninth inning. It would have ended the game -- Edwin Encarna...

  9. Is too much good pitching a bad thing?

    David Schoenfield

    From 2002 through 2012 there were three postseason games that ended 1-0. We've already had four this postseason. Justin Verlander has allowed one run in his three starts -- and his team has lost two of the games. The Dodgers and Cardinals began their...

  10. Wacha's gem puts Cards in driver's seat

    David Schoenfield

    Michael Wacha last pitched 13 days ago. You may remember that he was pretty good in that game: He lost a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning on Ryan Zimmerman's infield single. Amazingly, in just his 10th career start, Wacha followed up th...

  11. Price has terrible history against Rangers

    David Schoenfield

  13. A's need Cespedes and Reddick to produce

    David Schoenfield

    As Eric Karabell wrote today on his blog, Josh Reddick had a huge weekend for the Oakland A's, hitting five home runs over two games. Reddick, of course, had been struggling all season. Considering the recently A's lost a 6-game lead on the Rangers i...

    David Schoenfield

    The good news for the Philadelphia Phillies: They're still in second place! Or at least tied for second place. In fact, they've gone 14-16 since June 19 ... and haven't lost a game in the standings, still sitting eight games behind the Braves in t...

  15. Should O's worry about Machado, Davis?

    David Schoenfield

    If the playoffs started now, the Baltimore Orioles would be in -- they hold a one-game lead over the Rangers (who lost Thursday afternoon to the Yankees) as they go into their game tonight against the Royals. That lead is obviously precarious, with t...

  16. Did Brandon Belt have worst game ever?

    David Schoenfield

    Did you make it through the Mets-Giants game last night? Probably not. The Mets pulled out a 4-3 victory in 16 innings -- a win worthy of a big celebration in the Mets' clubhouse considering they had already lost three 15-inning games this season. ...
