  1. As Rangers fold, time for Washington to go

    David Schoenfield

    Remember back in February when Josh Hamilton said, "There are true baseball fans in Texas, but it's not a true baseball town." Maybe that stung a little at the time, but things really sting now. If pain, suffering and agony are requirements needed...

  3. Rangers suddenly look vulnerable

    David Schoenfield

    The Texas Rangers took over possession of first place in the American League West on April 9, the fourth game of the season. They held that position every day since then, all by themselves, 182 consecutive days. Until now. Now they're in danger...

  5. Cards complete comeback: Series champs

    David Schoenfield

  6. Pain, agony: Cardinals win all-time thriller

    David Schoenfield

  7. La Russa outfoxes Washington in opener

    David Schoenfield

    ST. LOUIS -- Give credit to Lance Berkman for his odd-looking cue-shot hit that bounded past Michael Young for a two-run single in the fourth. Give credit to Albert Pujols for his diving stop of a Young grounder up the line with a runner on third ...

  8. Cardinals bash bumbling Brewers

    David Schoenfield

    I'm not going to suggest it was the single worst play in postseason history. Babe Ruth, for instance, once got caught stealing for the final out in Game 7 of the World Series, trailing by one run with the Yankees' cleanup hitter at the plate. Dropped...
