    David Schoenfield

    Right now, the New York Mets' website lists their starting outfield as Lucas Duda in left field, Kirk Nieuwenhuis in center and Mike Baxter in right. Not exactly Mooke, Lenny and Darryl, let alone Upton, Upton and Heyward or Harper, Span and Werth. Y...

  6. What's a first-round pick worth?

    David Schoenfield

    One of the big stories of the offseason has been what has happened to the nine free agents who received qualifying offers. Teams had to decide whether to offer their free agents a one-year, $13.3 million contract in order to receive draft-pick compen...

  12. Where will Michael Bourn end up?

    David Schoenfield

    Michael Bourn is one of the most fascinating free agents on the market. First, he's fun to watch, an old-school, 1980s-type leadoff hitter with blazing speed. He's a gifted center fielder with a pretty good throwing arm, which isn't often the case fo...
