  1. Rapid Fire! Harper, Arrieta ... Uggla?

    David Schoenfield

    OK, my apologies: We ran out of time today before taping the Rapid Fire video, so I'll make it a written post instead. From @JoshLumley: Bruce Harper could make better lineups than Matt Williams. Answer: True. Hey, Harper shouldn't have essenti...

  2. Ibanez got the most out of his talent

    David Schoenfield

    What did they always say about Pete Rose? That no player ever got more out of his natural abilities than him? Maybe so. But I'd like to suggest Raul Ibanez. Ibanez never should have been a major leaguer. The Mariners drafted him in the 36th rou...

    David Schoenfield

    Earlier, I presented the 10 best decisions of 2013. Here are my 10 worst decisions -- moves that were clearly questionable when made. And, no, all 10 do not involve the Phillies. 10. Angels give $125 million to Josh Hamilton. It's easy to forget t...

  7. Never count out the New York Yankees

    David Schoenfield

    This will be the year. How long have we been saying this about the New York Yankees? This will be the year. Too old, too many bloated contracts, not enough young talent coming up through the minors and now ownership that -- horror of horrors! -- s...

  8. It's turning into the Year of Verlander

    David Schoenfield

    OK, it got a little nervous there for Tigers fans in the ninth inning. A little sweat. A little pacing. Maybe a few words you don't want the kids to hear when Robinson Cano singled with two outs off Phil Coke, moving the tying run to second base and ...

  11. The playoffs have already started

    David Schoenfield

    For a few minutes there I thought we had time-warped back to 2003 or 2004, with the Red Sox and Yankees playing a big game in October, Yankee Stadium shaking with noise, Derek Jeter watching intensely from the top step of the dugout. Then I saw Bo...

    On July 18, the New York Yankees blanked the Toronto Blue Jays 6-0 in a rain-shortened game. Hiroki Kuroda pitched the seven-inning shutout, Mark Teixeira homered and the Yankees ripped 12 hits off Ricky Romero. The Yankees were cruising, having won ...

  13. AL East position rankings: O's seek respect

    David Schoenfield

    "Show us some respect," yell Baltimore Orioles fans. Or maybe they're politely demanding. But I've seen the complaints in the Power Rankings comments, read the emails sent to "Baseball Today," been asked the question in my chats: Why doesn't anyone b...

  15. Tough slate for Phillies begins with Braves

    David Schoenfield

    I wouldn't go so far as to call it the mismatch of the century, but John Lannan trying to beat Roy Halladay in Philadephia was kind of like Mondale in '84: Not a chance. Halladay was brilliant with 10 strikeouts and no walks and Lannan was the opp...

  16. Will these guys turn it around?

    David Schoenfield

    I have to think one of the most difficult decisions a manager has to make is when to tell a veteran star he is moving down in the lineup ... or is being relegated to part-time duty ... or is not playing at all. Sometimes the player makes the decis...
