  2. Five reasons the Dodgers have struggled

    David Schoenfield

    The Dodgers enter Monday's game against the Reds with a 33-31 record, good enough to be in the thick of this year's wild-card race but 9.5 games behind the best-in-baseball Giants. Mediocrity may be good enough for now, but it's certainly not what wa...

  5. Hall of Fame talk: PEDs

    David Schoenfield

    A one-man version of SweetSpot TV. It's not the same without Eric Karabell, but I rant in some fashion about PEDs and the Hall of Fame. For the record, I'm a "let them in" guy, believing these players were a product of their generation and that we ca...

  6. Nationals look stronger than Braves

    David Schoenfield

    The tale of the National League East race in 2013 was told early on, maybe in an early April showdown in Washington. The Nationals entered with a 7-2 record, while the Braves came to town at 8-1. It was only April 12, but it was a statement series. I...

  11. Bobby Bonds' clutch 1973 season

    David Schoenfield

    Last week, when Paul Goldschmidt beat the Orioles the with a game-tying home run in the ninth and then a walk-off in the 11th, I wrote that Goldschmidt had become just the ninth player since 1969 to record at least seven games in a single season with...
