  1. Unsung position player: Anthony Rizzo

    David Schoenfield

    This could just be the circles I hang out in or the articles I read, but doesn't it seem like we've heard more about Javier Baez and Kris Bryant this year than Anthony Rizzo? I mean, I get that we love prospects, we love the hype, we love to build...

  2. Puig most compelling player in the game

    David Schoenfield

    Do you love Yasiel Puig or despise him? Do you marvel at the insane athletic ability or do you denounce him in disgust when he makes a crazy mistake on the field? Do you like guys who play the game like a kid, undisciplined and enthusiastic? Or...

  3. Players with more errors than strikeouts

    David Schoenfield

    Atlanta Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons hasn't struck out yet in 45 plate appearances. He's also yet to commit to an error. Have I mentioned that I love Simmons? This won't keep up, of course. At some point he'll face Jose Fernandez and Fernand...

  4. Opening Day primer: What not to miss

    David Schoenfield

    There's nothing quite like Opening Day. As Pete Rose once said, "It's like Christmas except warmer." It's a reminder that for perhaps inexplicable reasons we still love this crazy game, that we're ready to devote way too many hours over the next seve...

  5. Another reason to love Jose Fernandez

    David Schoenfield

    As if we need more impetus to like Marlins phenom Jose Fernandez, he says this to MLB.com: "My goal this year is to have a 1.95 ERA." Love it. Love that he has set a goal that will be outrageously difficult to achieve but firmly believes he can do...

  6. Cardinals making right decision with Wacha

    David Schoenfield

    I love this quote from Cardinals pitching coach Derek Lilliquist about Michael Wacha: "I don't see any reason why there is the buzz about the workload. He had 170 innings last year. You can think he could be a 200-inning guy this year. At the end of ...

  7. Yankees are still baseball's evil empire

    David Schoenfield

    This is the New York Yankees organization we love to hate: spending $155 million on Masahiro Tanaka and $153 million on Jacoby Ellsbury and at least $85 million on Brian McCann and another $45 million on Carlos Beltran, plus some pocket change on the...

  8. Why the Pirates are likely to decline in 2014

    David Schoenfield

    I didn't want to have to write this post. After all, I didn't have a specific rooting interest outside of my lousy hometown team, and like many fans, I fell a little bit in love with the Pittsburgh Pirates and their rise to prominence this past seaso...

  9. Ten reasons to love this World Series

    David Schoenfield

    This probably isn't the World Series you wanted, assuming you don't root for the Red Sox or Cardinals. After all, both franchises have been to the World Series multiple times in the past decade and both have won twice. So maybe you wanted some new bl...

  10. Tigers better even with hobbled Cabrera

    David Schoenfield

    I'll be honest: I never quite got the love affair with the 2011 and 2012 Detroit Tigers. They were good teams winning bad divisions, top-heavy with stars, but the sum of the parts was never as good as the national media made them out to be. I mean...

  11. Who to root for? Ranking the contenders

    David Schoenfield

    Your team is out of it, but you still love baseball. You intend keep checking box scores and watching the big games these final two weeks. You'll watch the playoffs, but you need a team to root for. So, who to pick from the remaining teams in cont...

  13. Davis, Harper highlight Derby squads

    David Schoenfield

    I have a 15-year-old nephew who loves the Home Run Derby but doesn't care all that much about the actual All-Star Game. That seems a little blasphemous to those of us of a certain age who grew up hating Pete Rose and Steve Garvey and all of those Nat...

  14. Rays staying in race thanks to offense

    David Schoenfield

    I know, I know: You're tired of stat nerds professing their love for the Tampa Bay Rays, a franchise that hasn't even reached the World Series since 2008, let alone ever won one. Why do we love the Rays? They compete despite usually ranking near t...

  15. 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...

  16. Battle of the uniforms: Caple, Lukas brawl

    David Schoenfield

    I hope you've checked out our Battle of the Uniforms package. I still say the Phillies cream jerseys with the blue cap are the best in baseball, although I love the Cardinals' new alternate jerseys. Anyway, check out the video above as Jim Caple a...
