  1. Poll: Right move to start Kershaw?

    David Schoenfield

    Remember, for a long time, short rest meant starting on two days of rest, not three -- think of Sandy Koufax in Game 7 of the 1965 World Series spinning a three-hit shutout or Mickey Lolich in Game 7 in 1968 beating Bob Gibson. So it's not as if t...

    David Schoenfield

    Two statistical nuggets: Felix Hernandez tied Tom Seaver's major league record with 13 consecutive starts pitching at least seven innings and allowing two runs or fewer. Adam Wainwright has allowed zero runs in 10 starts this season, three mo...

  3. Poll: Best 3-4 combo in the majors

    David Schoenfield

    During today's Power Rankings video chat with Eric Karabell, we mentioned that Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion of the Blue Jays may be the best 3-4 combo in the majors. But are they? Let's put it to a poll. Bautista-Encarnacion, Blue Jays ...

    David Schoenfield

    Happy birthday to Chipper Jones, Omar Vizquel and the still-active Carlos Beltran. Today's question: How many of those three should make the Hall of Fame? OK, Chipper is an obvious Hall of Famer, Vizquel and Beltran less so. Some quick numbe...

  6. Fans don't show Greg Maddux respect

    David Schoenfield

    I'll admit the results of this SportsNation poll shocked me: Only 70 percent of respondents -- with more than 33,000 votes cast -- believe Greg Maddux should be elected to the Hall of Fame on the first ballot. And you thought the BBWAA had tough s...

    David Schoenfield

    In my previous post, I ran down the American League poll results from the offseason report cards. Here are the National League results. As in the AL, fans are optimistic cross the board. For those who argue baseball lacks parity, tell that to base...

  9. Poll: Has A-Rod played final game for Yanks?

    David Schoenfield

    Joe Girardi continues his lineup-pulled-from-a-hat routine and in Game 4 there's no Alex Rodriguez or Curtis Granderson in the starting nine. Nick Swisher returns to right field with Brett Gardner sliding over to center field from left. Eric Chavez i...

  10. Poll: Who will win the NL West?

    David Schoenfield

    The Dodgers held a big early lead. (Remember that 30-13 start?) The Giants slowly chipped away. Now the Diamondbacks are surging. Following the Giants' loss to the Mets on Thursday afternoon, the Giants' lead over the Dodgers sits at half a game. ...

    Eric and I recorded this on Monday. It goes with this post on the NL's best team. You can go vote in the poll on that page, but here are the results through nearly 8,000 votes: Braves: 40 percent Dodgers: 25 percent Cardinals: 14 percent Nation...

  13. Vote: Best single game performance ever

    David Schoenfield

    Time for a quick poll. Ryan Braun went 4-for-5 with three home runs, a triple and six RBIs (the first player with three homers and triple since Fred Lynn in 1975) on Monday night, giving him 15 total bases. Certainly a great day, one of the best in m...

  14. Poll: How would you handle Strasburg?

    David Schoenfield

    Colleague Jim Bowden has a piece today about five managers on the hot seat and mentions Davey Johnson, not so much because his job is in jeopardy (the Nationals are 10-3) but because he'll eventually have to deal with the possible innings limitation...

    Our final over/under poll: the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers went all-in for Prince Fielder's final season in Milwaukee and came up two wins short of the World Series. Behind MVP Ryan Braun and Fielder's 38 home runs, the Brewers ranked fifth in ...

  16. Over/unders: Three overs, three unders

    David Schoenfield

    If you've been voting and paying attention to the over/under polls for each team you may have noticed a trend: Nearly all the results are siding on the "over" -- and many lopsidedly so. This makes sense on a certain level. We're optimistic in Marc...
