  2. Weekend wrap: Is Jose Bautista back?

    David Schoenfield

    In April, Jose Bautista had turned into a three true outcomes type of player: home run, walk or strikeout. He hit seven home runs and had a slugging percentage over .500, but was hitting just .200. Was he just finding his stroke as he returned fro...

  7. Orioles starting to look like team of destiny

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the thing about baseball in 2012: The difference between the best teams and the worst teams isn't all that extreme. The New York Yankees, for example, have outscored their opponents by 99 runs. The Minnesota Twins, with one of the worst starti...

  8. Is Mike Olt the new Mark Reynolds?

    David Schoenfield

    As I suggested a couple days ago, the Rangers have called up third baseman Mike Olt from Double-A. I can't imagine they called him to sit on the bench, so while he probably won't play much third base with Adrian Beltre around, he might platoon at fir...

    David Schoenfield

    As a Mariners fan in the 1980s, one player absolutely wrecked me above all others: Jim Presley. He was a third baseman with good power, a quick bat and a strong arm. In 1985, his first full season, he hit .275/.324/.484 with 28 home runs and 33 doubl...

  12. Mark Reynolds: Worst defensive year ever?

    David Schoenfield

    I'll give this to Mark Reynolds: He is one of most unique, fascinating players in major league history. He holds the single-season strikeout record, of course, with 223 in 2009. Heck, he holds the top three single-season marks of all time. This se...

  13. What went wrong with Diamondbacks?

    David Schoenfield

    In 2007, just three seasons after losing 111 games, the Arizona Diamondbacks won 90 games and the NL West title and reached the NLCS. They were swept by red-hot division rival Colorado, but it was a terrific season for a young ballclub. The future lo...
