  2. Maybe Astros are Scherzer mystery team

    David Schoenfield

    Keith Law's review of the Evan Gattis trade wasn't kind to the Astros:There's a good chance Atlanta walks out of this deal with an above-average starting pitcher and an everyday third baseman, which would be a heck of a return for a flawed player suc...

  4. Five sleeper free agents still available

    David Schoenfield

  8. Bullpen cloud still hangs over Tigers

    David Schoenfield

    It's the postseason. Maybe it's the wild-card game. Maybe it's the Division Series or the ALCS or even the World Series. The Detroit Tigers are leading 3-2. It's the ninth inning. Say Max Scherzer or David Price has gone the first eight innings, but ...

  14. Scherzer delivers, but Tigers have flaws

    David Schoenfield

    The other day, I had a discussion with one of my editors: What defines an ace? He brought up Max Scherzer. I said, yes, I would describe Scherzer as an ace. He pointed out Scherzer has never had a complete game in the majors. Can that be an ace? Has ...
