  1. The top 10 starters in baseball

    David Schoenfield

    Last week, after Corey Kluber dominated the Mariners with an 85-pitch shutout, I rashly tweeted that Kluber is one of the best 10 starting pitchers in the game. That seemed to stir things up a bit on Twitter, and Giants fans were especially angered w...

  2. Scherzer delivers, but Tigers have flaws

    David Schoenfield

    The other day, I had a discussion with one of my editors: What defines an ace? He brought up Max Scherzer. I said, yes, I would describe Scherzer as an ace. He pointed out Scherzer has never had a complete game in the majors. Can that be an ace? Has ...

  3. Chris Sale may be the best starter in MLB

    David Schoenfield

    Who is the best starting pitcher in baseball right now? I think you can make a strong case for Chris Sale, who maybe isn't the first guy who pops into your head, in part because he did miss a few starts with a tender elbow -- technically a strained f...

  4. SweetSpot's 2013 AL All-Star team

    David Schoenfield

    Here are my choices for the 2013 American League All-Star team: Catcher: Joe Mauer, Twins (.324/.404/.476, 11 HRs, 47 RBIs, 5.2 WAR) There's not a real clear choice, as Mauer played just 75 of his 113 games behind the plate, but he's the best hit...

    David Schoenfield

    With four scoreless starts in his past five outings, Seattle Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma has forced his way into the Cy Young discussion. He's now 14-6 with a 2.66 ERA. Eric Karabell calls Iwakuma his fantasy MVP among pitchers, but that...

    David Schoenfield

    NEW YORK -- Here's a fun piece of All-Star trivia: At 24, Matt Harvey is the youngest pitcher to start an All-Star Game since Dwight Gooden, also of the Mets, who was 23 in 1988. How Harvey will fare in front of the home fans is one of the big sto...

  9. Thoughts: Tigers play ugliest game of year

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Tuesday's games ... It can happen to the best of teams, that one game where everything goes wrong. Mariners fans still get depressed over a 2001 loss to Cleveland in which Seattle blew a 12-0 lead, a loss that would cost the Mar...

  10. Sox, M's remind us why we love baseball

    David Schoenfield

    The game survives. It always survives. A routine Wednesday afternoon game on a gorgeous June day in Seattle between two teams rapidly going nowhere can slog along for 13 uneventful innings -- so uneventful that it was 0-0 heading to the 14th, with...

  12. Wrap: Big problems for O's, Indians, Rays

    David Schoenfield

    This whole closer thing is a tough business. Perfection isn't just expected; it's demanded. Slip up once and it's a headline; slip up twice and fans are ready to trade you to Topeka. Slip up three times and your manager usually starts questioning you...

    David Schoenfield

    In April, Jose Bautista had turned into a three true outcomes type of player: home run, walk or strikeout. He hit seven home runs and had a slugging percentage over .500, but was hitting just .200. Was he just finding his stroke as he returned fro...

  16. White Sox make good move to sign Peavy

    David Schoenfield

    Heading into the offseason, the top free-agent starting pitchers looked to be Zack Greinke, Kyle Lohse and Jake Peavy, assuming the Chicago White Sox didn't pick up a $22 million option on Peavy. The White Sox didn't exercise that option, as they ...
