  1. Quick thoughts: Sox throw away Game 3

    David Schoenfield

    It's a play that will go down in infamy, a game that may go down in infamy if the St. Louis Cardinals go on to win this World Series. The Cardinals beat the Boston Red Sox 5-4 in Game 3, but in a game that could be dissected in a thousand ways, every...

  6. Braves and umps blunder their way to loss

    David Schoenfield

    Well, that was insane. Fans of the new system will say this is exactly the kind of excitement baseball needs. Critics will suggest this game sums up everything that's wrong with a one-game playoff series. One bad throw (or three), one mental er...

  8. Wrap: Ross Detwiler vs. Stephen Strasburg

    David Schoenfield

    During Tuesday's chat session, Stephen Strasburg's name kept coming up ... and so did Ross Detwiler's. Is Detwiler that much of a drop from Strasburg as a potential playoff starter? We discuss that, Buster Posey's underrated season, the best 3-4-5 co...

  10. SweetSpot predictions: NL MVP

    David Schoenfield

    Albert Pujols and Prince Fielder, two of 2011's top-five finishers in the NL MVP voting, switched leagues, making the 2012 race potentially wide open. Ryan Braun and Matt Kemp finished 1-2 in the 2011 voting, but Braun will have to show he can put up...

  12. Reds should hold on to Joey Votto

    David Schoenfield

    Trade Joey Votto now, the theory goes. The Cincinnati Reds have him for two seasons until he becomes a free agent. He's one of the best players in the game. As a small-market franchise, the Reds will be unlikely to afford him when he hits the market....

  16. Albert Pujols destroys error-prone Rangers

    David Schoenfield

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Well, Alexi Ogando did finally get Allen Craig out. He did not, however, retire Albert Pujols. Neither did Mike Gonzalez and Darren Oliver. Pujols had perhaps the greatest single-game performance by a hitter in World Seri...
