  1. Five key issues as we reach the quarter pole

    David Schoenfield

    Whenever people say baseball is in trouble I point them to a game like Sunday's Yankees-Brewers contest in Milwaukee, a fun back-and-forth game played before a loud, soldout crowd of over 43,000 fans at Miller Park. Yes, it was the Yankees and it ...

  5. 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...

  6. Thoughts: Pablo Sandoval is just big-boned

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on a Tuesday night that featured a lot of home runs across this great land ... Look, Pablo Sandoval is fat. I'm about 99.7 percent sure if that if he lost 10 or 50 pounds that he'd be a better player. But, hey, he is who he is and ...

  8. Dominicans have the talent to win WBC

    David Schoenfield

    No, the World Baseball Classic isn't the World Series or the World Cup, and it doesn't really prove which country has the best baseball talent. But it's a fun event, the players participating want to win, and there are fans across the globe -- mostly...

  9. What does it mean to win 94 games?

    David Schoenfield

    One of the fun aspects of what I do is the ongoing dialogue we can engage in. When I posted my top-10 power rankings on Sunday, and then a follow-up on why I didn't include the Giants, I heard it loud and clear from Giants fans on Twitter and in the ...

    The offseason is already in full swing, but I wanted to put a bow of sorts on the 2012 season. Let's take one final look at the 2012 postseason and see what we learned ... if anything. 1. Starting rotation depth is vital. The Giants' rotation dept...

  11. Bumgarner, little things put Giants up 2-0

    David Schoenfield

    SAN FRANCISCO -- This was the Madison Bumgarner Giants fans saw most of the season: the pitcher with impeccable control, the ability to get inside on right-handed batters, generate ground balls and change speeds. This was the pitcher who had become o...

  12. Tigers in trouble after Sandoval's big game

    David Schoenfield

    They call him Kung Fu Panda. Now they can call him a World Series legend. Pablo Sandoval, a batter who rarely sees a pitch he doesn't like, found three pitches he loved in the World Series opener and entered his name alongside three of the biggest...

  13. History of World Series celebrations

    David Schoenfield

    In a few days, we'll get to see Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera make mincemeat of some poor Tigers pitcher. Or maybe we'll see Sergio Romo running for his life as Pablo Sandoval prepares to leap on top of him. No matter which team wins, we'll see p...

    David Schoenfield

    Well, there was only one game to talk about so Keith Law and I were forced to discuss Tuesday night's destruction of Justin Verlander on Wednesday's Baseball Today podcast. 1. Both of us agree that perhaps Verlander didn't have the right attitude ...

  16. All-Star rosters full of hits and misses

    David Schoenfield

    My favorite All-Star selection in the past decade was reliever Mike Williams of the Pirates in 2003. At the break, he had 25 saves ... but a 6.44 ERA. He was the Pirates' lone representative, of course, although the club did have other worthy options...
