  2. Twenty-seven reasons Yankees will collapse

    David Schoenfield

    Confession: I spent all offseason believing the Yankees would still rank among the American League's elite teams in 2013. After all, despite the woeful hitting in the postseason, this was still a team that won 95 games and had the second-best run dif...

  7. Ten important things to know on Aug. 13

    David Schoenfield

    You have to love August baseball. This is when the grind of the long season settles in, when depth becomes even more important, when pitchers have to pitch through fatigue and soreness and maybe a little pain. It's when we find out if the pretenders ...

  8. Links: Ryan Braun's vindication

    David Schoenfield

    Ryan Braun made his fifth straight All-Star Game with another monster first half, hitting .306 with an NL-leading 24 home runs. Overall, his numbers are pretty similar to his 2011 MVP season: .306/.391/.599 in 2012 versus .332/.397/.597. Jack Moore o...

  12. Clearing the bases: Hanley heats up

    David Schoenfield

    First base: Phabulous Phil. I watched much of the Yankees-Tigers game and Phil Hughes looked as good as I've seen him since early in the 2010 season, showing a lot of confidence with his fastball in throwing his second career complete game. I thought...

  13. Weekly preview: Are Orioles for real?

    David Schoenfield

    It's easy to discount the Baltimore Orioles and their 14-8 start. Even Orioles fans will agree with that, I suppose -- 14 consecutive losing seasons, six consecutive seasons of 90-plus losses, a decade of bad pitching, bad fielding, bad free agents a...
