  1. Ranking baseball's greatest dynasties

    David Schoenfield

    After the San Francisco Giants won the World Series, I wrote a post titled "Baseball's imperfect dynasty." Within that post, I asked readers if they considered the Giants a dynasty and 84 percent said yes. So if the Giants are a dynasty, where do ...

  2. Devin Mesoraco: Is he the real deal?

    David Schoenfield

    The Reds and catcher Devin Mesoraco have agreed to a four-year, $28 million deal. Like a lot of these multiyear deals with young players, it buys out one year of free agency. Mesoraco had been a highly rated prospect, although he struggled in hi...

  3. Top breakout candidates for 2015

    David Schoenfield

    During my chats this offseason, one question that always comes up: Who do you like as a breakout performer? There are certainly obvious candidates to that question. The harder part is coming up with guys like Josh Donaldson or Josh Harrison or Dallas...

  4. Jonathan Papelbon: Potential Hall of Famer

    David Schoenfield

    The Brewers are in talks with the Phillies to acquire Jonathan Papelbon, which makes a lot of sense since the Phillies have no need for Papelbon. The Brewers' closer right now is Jonathan Broxton, and their bullpen could use some depth. Anyway, th...

  7. The wave of the future

    David Schoenfield

    I'm reading Dan Epstein's book on the entertaining 1976 season, "Stars and Strikes: Baseball and America in the Bicentennial Summer of '76." One of the biggest changes in the game since then is what I would term professionalism. Back in 1976, players...

  8. The all-time all-underrated team

    David Schoenfield

    The recent Hall of Fame elections serve two important purposes. One, it's a chance to recognize the superstars of the recent past and how many memories Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio provided us. But the elections also se...

  9. Kipnis, Puig will rebound; Braves won't

    David Schoenfield

    It's been a slow few weeks in the world of baseball. So here are some random thoughts going through my mind as we wait for Max Scherzer to sign ... and wait ... and wait ... 1. I still don't understand the lack of support that Mike Mussina has rec...

  10. Ichiro Suzuki, defense and career WAR

    David Schoenfield

    I wrote a post on Wednesday tied into our Hall of 100 list, touching on whether Derek Jeter was ranked too high at No. 31. I argued that in order to get Jeter somewhere close to No. 31 you have to believe the defensive metrics are wrong about Jeter's...

  13. Ranking this year's Hall of Fame candidates

    David Schoenfield

    I don't have a Hall of Fame vote since I've been a BBWAA member for only one year. Will there even be a Hall of Fame in nine years when I'll be eligible to vote? Anyway, if I did have a vote, I've come around to using "wins above average" as a goo...

  14. Nomar and the most underrated player ever

    David Schoenfield

    Joe Posnanski wrote the other day about the players on this year's Hall of Fame ballot who are unlikely to receive 5 percent of the vote and thus will get booted off future ballots. There are some very good players here, including Carlos Delgado (lov...

    There's an old story that in April of 1947, over maybe a few too many drinks at Toots Shor's restaurant in New York, Yankees owner Dan Topping and Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey had agreed to the biggest trade in baseball history: Joe DiMaggio for Ted Will...
