    David Schoenfield

    Click here to check out Tuesday's chat wrap. We didn't even talk about Derek Jeter one time!...

  2. Happy birthday, Albert Pujols

    David Schoenfield

    I'm going to try something new here. Maybe this will be a one-time post, maybe I'll do it on occasion or maybe I'll do it for two months and get tired of doing it. Anyway, the idea is to look at each day's list of birthdays and write a short blurb ab...

  3. Helton falls just under Hall of Famer bar

    David Schoenfield

    Todd Helton had a pretty nice major league career for a backup quarterback. The one-time Tennessee QB announced he'll retire at the end of the season, after a 17-year career that has seen him hit .317 with 367 home runs, 2,505 hits and 1,397 RBIs. ...

  4. A's add needed shortstop depth with Lowrie

    David Schoenfield

    Jed Lowrie, being a one-time hyped prospect for the Red Sox, is probably overrated, at least as far as his value-to-name recognition ratio, but he should be able to help the Oakland A's. Billy Beane acquired the shortstop from the Houston Astros, ...

  5. Myers-Shields trade could work for Royals

    David Schoenfield

    Prospects are the lifeblood of baseball. Every great player was, of course, a prospect at one time, slumming it on buses in Class A or playing in Double-A stadiums still small enough that smoke from the hamburger grill can be seen from the batter's b...

  6. Links: NL East, Adam Jones, Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

    I hope you read Jayson Stark's piece arguing that baseball actually has more parity than the NFL. From ESPN Insider, Dave Cameron looks at three one-time All-Stars who are good candidates to bounce back in 2012 and Dan Szymborski looks at the rema...

  7. Nelson Cruz powers Rangers to AL title

    David Schoenfield

    The Texas Rangers pitchers started six games in the ALCS and managed to go six innings just one time. They allowed 36 hits, 21 runs and nine home runs in 28.2 innings while posting a 6.59 ERA. They didn't win a game. But baseball games aren't won ...

  8. Guilder Rodriguez and the baseball dream

    David Schoenfield

    This has to be one of the season's best moments: Guilder Rodriguez, a 31-year-old Venezuelan recently called up to the majors for the first time, gets his first major league hit and we see his parents crying, Rangers fans giving him a standing ovatio...

  9. Fredi's risky move pays off for Braves

    David Schoenfield

    One of the byproducts of sabermetrics has been the change in how we view managers. For starters, general managers are now the off-the-field face of the organization. There was a time when Earl Weaver had a big role in determining his 25-man roster or...

  10. Five things we learned Tuesday

    David Schoenfield

    1. Madison Bumgarner says, "Don't you forget about the Giants." Strange question from my chat session on Tuesday: "Time to blow up the Giants? Keep Posey, Bumgarner and start over?" I mean ... the Giants are holding one of the wild cards and at fi...

  11. Just because: Mark Fidrych, 1976

    David Schoenfield

    In my Tuesday chat session, we somehow got on the topic of one-year wonders. I mentioned Mark Fidrych, who had a great rookie season with the Tigers in 1976 and then got injured. Chris from NYC responded: "I saw Fidrych pitch live a few times and ...

  12. A year late, but Jays are relevant again

    David Schoenfield

    A little story. My first job in sports was an agate clerk at the Seattle Times -- answering phones, working up box scores, writing up high school sports results and the like. One of the tasks would be to call the local paper to get a score if the Sea...

  13. Monday reading list: Two on Koufax

    David Schoenfield

    Joe Posnanski is ranking the 100 best baseball players of all time and the other day he wrote about Sandy Koufax, his No. 46 guy. Koufax is one of the most difficult players to rank in a list like this due to his short career. His case raises the ...

  14. A day of pitching, pitching and pitching

    David Schoenfield

    There were 15 games played Wednesday. One-third of those games featured a shutout. Teams hit a collective .220 and averaged 2.8 runs per game. The Cubs played a doubleheader and didn't score a run, the first time that has happened since 1962 (the Cub...

  15. The greatest pitcher of all time?

    David Schoenfield

    Today's birthdays include: Hall of Famers Lefty Grove and Willie Stargell, five-time All-Star Cookie Rojas, one-armed outfielder Pete Gray, catcher Bob Swift (remembered as the catcher when this happened) and Roberto Duran (the pitcher, not the boxer...

  16. More instant replay the right move for MLB

    David Schoenfield

    Instant replay is finally here, in all its glorious, expanded capability. This is a good thing for baseball and a long time coming. Home runs were just a start, but now managers will have the ability to challenge one play per game -- plus a second on...
