  1. Hall of Fame pitchers and peak value

    David Schoenfield

    I wasn't around when Roy Halladay announced his retirement at the winter meetings on Dec. 9, so this piece is a little late to the game, but it's also about a few of the pitchers on this year's Hall of Fame ballot -- Curt Schilling and Mike Mussina a...

  2. Active players who will be Hall of Famers

    David Schoenfield

    Albert Pujols was placed on the disabled list on Sunday, sort of the exclamation point to the Los Angeles Angels' debacle of a season. Sunday was Hall of Fame induction day -- you may have missed it, considering the lone player elected played his fin...

  3. Ten reasons the Phillies will be buyers

    David Schoenfield

    The Philadelphia Phillies are 23-24, they've been outscored by 31 runs, Roy Halladay is on the disabled list, Ryan Howard hasn't hit and Cole Hamels can't win. So the Phillies eventually will be sellers at the trade deadline, right? I don't think ...

  4. The best right-hander? Darvish is the man

    David Schoenfield

    There are worse ways to spend a Sunday afternoon than watching Yu Darvish and Justin Verlander pitch. Especially if you're not at the ballpark and you can set up a laptop outside, put up your feet, soak in those first warm rays of early May and imagi...

  5. Hey, at least Delmon Young is active!

    David Schoenfield

    It hasn't been the best of Aprils for the Phillies, and while there was hope that year's mediocre season would see a return to recent glory with full and healthy seasons from Chase Utley, Ryan Howard and Roy Halladay, that hasn't been the case. Bill ...

  6. Thoughts: Pablo Sandoval is just big-boned

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on a Tuesday night that featured a lot of home runs across this great land ... Look, Pablo Sandoval is fat. I'm about 99.7 percent sure if that if he lost 10 or 50 pounds that he'd be a better player. But, hey, he is who he is and ...

    David Schoenfield

    Here's the chat wrap from Tuesday afternoon's session -- lots of thoughts on the bad call that ended Monday night's Rays-Rangers game, some questions and discussion on the bad starts for R.A. Dickey and Roy Halladay, my all-time Mariners opponents te...

  8. Thoughts: One strike closer to robot umps

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Monday's games ... Did you see the final pitch of the Rangers' 5-4 victory over the Rays? Ump Marty Foster rung up Ben Zobrist on a 3-2 curveball low and off the outside corner, a call so bad that even Rangers closer Joe Nathan ...

  9. Roy Halladay is no longer Roy Halladay

    David Schoenfield

    The great ones don't all go out like Ted Williams, hitting .316 in his final season and homering in his final at-bat, rounding the bases at Fenway Park on a gray afternoon that required the lights turned on. "He didn't tip his cap," wrote Joh...

    David Schoenfield

    Spring training consists of a lot of bunting practice and manufactured stories, false alarms and overhyped weight losses (or increases). But some news events and stories are potentially important. Here are the 25 biggest ones -- from on the field -- ...

  11. Could this be the end for Roy Halladay?

    David Schoenfield

    You probably saw that Roy Halladay pitched in a minor league game on Saturday and struggled once again, retiring just seven of the 18 hitters he faced. Jayson Stark was there and wrote: So only seven hitters actually headed back to the bench without...

  12. 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...

  14. Carpenter one of the best of his generation

    David Schoenfield

    If this is the end for Chris Carpenter, as it appears it is, I can only tip my cap to one of the most memorable pitchers of the past decade. And one of the best. Five things that come to mind from his impressive career: 1. Outdueling Roy Halladay ...

  15. Power rankings: All 30 teams!

    David Schoenfield

    Last weekend, I presented the top 10 teams in my personal power rankings. That was before the Blue Jays officially acquired R.A. Dickey, so I updated my top 10 after that trade, and, to spur on more debate, now present the rest of my rankings. Agree ...

  16. Clearing the bases: Orioles aren't good

    David Schoenfield

    First base: Ohh, Baltimore. On the latest edition of SweetSpot TV, Eric Karabell and I discussed whether the Orioles should be buyers at the trade deadline. We agreed they shouldn't. Monday's game is a good example of why. Long-time prospect Chris Ti...
