  1. Five things we learned Sunday

    David Schoenfield

    We're starting to see a little clarity. I think. Check the standings, playoff odds and remaining schedule at the Hunt for October page. 1. The A's with their biggest win of the season. Of course, they needed their biggest win after weeks of big...

  2. Vance Worley member of All-Surprise Team

    David Schoenfield

    Teams make the playoffs with expected production from their stars, with young players who improve, maybe a couple rookies who step up. But on almost every playoff team, you can find a guy who came out of nowhere to offer a major contribution. Vanc...

  3. The Felix dilemma: How much rest?

    David Schoenfield

    Remember way back in 2008, when CC Sabathia was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers and made his final three starts of the season on three days' rest, helping the Brewers to their first playoff appearance since 1982? That seems like a generation ago. ...

  4. Underrated Brewers rotation will surprise

    David Schoenfield

    After the Milwaukee Brewers won 96 games and reached the NLCS in 2011, not a lot people predicted they would make the playoffs last season, primarily because they had lost first baseman Prince Fielder. I wrote before the season that the Brewers' o...

  5. Brewers making wild-card race extra fun

    David Schoenfield

    The second wild card is a goofy, ridiculous idea that goes against everything baseball history stands for: That the regular season is the ultimate test of a team's ability, strength and toughness. To get to the playoffs, you have to prove yourself ov...

  6. You can go from losing record to playoffs

    David Schoenfield

    You still hear the same complaints: The rich teams win all the time; the NFL is more unpredictable; once a loser, always a loser; my team has no chance. Since 2006, 12 teams have made the playoffs that had a losing record the previous season. That...

  7. Cardinals bash bumbling Brewers

    David Schoenfield

    I'm not going to suggest it was the single worst play in postseason history. Babe Ruth, for instance, once got caught stealing for the final out in Game 7 of the World Series, trailing by one run with the Yankees' cleanup hitter at the plate. Dropped...

  8. Frantic finish: Brewers win thriller

    David Schoenfield

    Wait ... we still have two rounds of postseason baseball to go? The Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers gave us a game to remember Friday, the first extra-inning, sudden-death game in the playoffs since Aaron Boone's home run won the 2003 A...

  9. How are playoff rotations shaping up?

    David Schoenfield

    Some managers may be waiting to see who their first-round opponent will be (the No. 2 seeds in both leagues are still up for grabs), but here's my best guess on how the rotations will line up. Remember, the format is a little different this year, as ...

  10. Postseason Q&A: Who is the Brewers' ace?

    David Schoenfield

    Today's postseason question: Who should be the Brewers' No. 1 starter? Like the Philadelphia Phillies, the Milwaukee Brewers have the luxury of a deep rotation. While none of their top four starters quite match up statistically with the Phillies' ...
