  1. Five AL players who need to bounce back

    David Schoenfield

    We love trades and free-agent signings and speculation about trades and free agents, but sometimes the easiest and most practical road to improvement is simply getting improved production from some key players who had down years. Here are five Americ...

  2. Happy b-day, Ken Griffey Jr. & Stan Musial

    David Schoenfield

    Don't you love stuff like this: Stan Musial was born Nov. 21, 1920 in Donora, Pa.; Ken Griffey Jr. was born Nov. 21, 1969 ... in Donora, Pa. As Bill James once wrote, Griffey Jr. is the second-best left-handed-hitting outfielder ever from Donora, ...

  3. Link of the week: Transaction trees

    David Schoenfield

    I love transactions tree. Last week, I tweeted a link from our Indians blog that traced Cy Young winner Corey Kluber back to former Indians infielder Jerry Dybzinski through a series of transactions. Ben Lindbergh of Grantland wrestled up the "old...

  4. Ten reasons to love this World Series

    David Schoenfield

    KANSAS CITY -- I know what some of you are thinking: "Hey, aren't you the idiot who just called this the worst World Series ever? So what's up with this piece, pal?" Well, yes, the headline was admittedly a little provocative and it certainly stirred...

  5. Brawl: The love/hate relationship with Puig

    David Schoenfield

    Adam Wainwright wasn't trying to hit Yasiel Puig in the third inning, at least I don't think so. Puig was the first hitter in the inning in a 1-0 game. There's too much at stake to give away a baserunner in that situation when you're trying to beat C...

  6. Five things we learned Tuesday

    David Schoenfield

    Don't forget to check out the Hunt for October for standings, playoffs odds and upcoming schedules for all the playoff contenders. 1. Don't go burying the Oakland A's just yet. Ahh, America: We love to jump on a bandwagon and then crush it as s...

  7. Do you want the Yankees in the playoffs?

    David Schoenfield

    You know what baseball is lacking this season? A bad guy. Who are we supposed to root against? The Red Sox are dead, the Cardinals are scuffling along and while the Dodgers have a huge payroll that fans love to despite, I find it hard to root against...

  8. 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...

  9. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

  12. 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...

  13. 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 ...

  14. 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...

  15. 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...

  16. 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...
