  1. Jack McDowell says PED users in Hall

    David Schoenfield

    I've wondered this: What if an individual already in the Hall of Fame admitted to using PEDs? Would that change the thinking of the voters who don't vote for Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire and the other implicated steroid users? Hmm, we've ...

    David Schoenfield

  3. Mussina should be slam-dunk Hall of Famer

    David Schoenfield

    Here's my plea to Hall of Fame voters: Don't forget about Mike Mussina. This year's ballot entrusts the 500-something voters with the monumental task of examining at least 21 legitimate Hall of Fame candidates, from Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens t...

  4. Are the Tigers an all-time great team?

    David Schoenfield

    Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer looks to go 10-0 tonight and become just the second starter of the wild-card era to win his first 10 decisions. Roger Clemens started 11-0 for the '97 Toronto Blue Jays (Clay Buchholz and Patrick Corbin are also 9-...

  5. J-Upton delivers big message to D-backs

    David Schoenfield

    Let's be honest here, Justin Upton's first game back in Arizona wasn't exactly Alex Rodriguez heading back to Texas or Roger Clemens returning to Fenway Park. When he stepped up in the top of the first inning on Monday, it was mostly a milquetoast re...

  6. The best five-year pitching peaks

    David Schoenfield

    This is another follow-up to a debate that arose in a recent chat session: Which pitcher had the best five-year peak? With Sandy Koufax having spent time at Dodgers camp this spring it seems like a perfect time for a list, doesn't it? Well, I c...

  8. Hall of Fame voting hits a new low

    David Schoenfield

    Is this a sad day for baseball? Maybe not. There will be another election next year and one the year after that. I presume onward into the future players will get elected. But this year? The Baseball Writers' Association of America struck out. Nob...

  9. Predicting future Hall of Fame elections

    David Schoenfield

    Let's have a little fun and attempt to predict the players the BBWAA will elect over the next several years. Based on past vote totals for Mark McGwire and Rafael Palmeiro and scanning published columns, it's pretty clear Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens a...

  10. Sammy Sosa a borderline Hall of Famer

    David Schoenfield

    Absent, shall we say, a complicating factor, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa would be ultra-mortal locks. Based on the numbers, there wouldn't be the slightest hesitation in checking the box next to their names. That quote comes from long...

  11. Hall of 100: Best pitcher of all time

    David Schoenfield

    Who is the greatest pitcher ever? There are different answers to that question, I suppose. When Bill James ranked pitchers a decade ago in his "New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract," he had Walter Johnson at the top of his list, followed by...

  12. Wrap: Playoffs, best fans, trading Andrus

    David Schoenfield

    With the pesky Rays and Orioles battling it out in Baltimore, we talked about the wild-card race, whether the Rangers should trade Elvis Andrus, why football is more popular than baseball, playoff rotations, which city has fans that are most into gam...

  13. A great performance nobody remembers

    David Schoenfield

    Who holds the record for most strikeouts in a game? You're probably thinking of Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson and Kerry Wood, each of whom fanned 20 in a game (Clemens did it twice). But Tom Cheney of the Washington Senators struck out 21 Orioles o...

  14. Yes, I want to see Roger Clemens pitch

    David Schoenfield

    I know Roger Clemens is as beloved as an infected wart. But how can you not get a kick out of a 50-year-old guy who hasn't pitched in the majors since 2007 but says stuff like this: "I can tell you right now and they would know, too, that if I was g...

  15. The most exciting player in baseball

    David Schoenfield

    We all have our own favorites, of course, and maybe they change from season to season. Or month to month. That's a little of the beauty of baseball; we don't all have to enjoy and appreciate the same players. The stars aren't necessarily shoved down ...

  16. Dream teams: 1992 versus 2012

    David Schoenfield

    Before the Olympics began, Kobe Bryant suggested this year's Olympic basketball team would defeat the fabled 1992 Dream Team that featured Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Charles Barkley and Larry Bird. Bryant later adjusted his thoughts, saying the D...
