    David Schoenfield

    Five thoughts on Monday's battle between the first-place Detroit Tigers and first-place Baltimore Orioles, a 4-1 Tigers win that was more interesting than the final score indicates and evidence of why they were No. 1 in this week's Power Rankings. ...

  2. A year late, but Jays are relevant again

    David Schoenfield

    A little story. My first job in sports was an agate clerk at the Seattle Times -- answering phones, working up box scores, writing up high school sports results and the like. One of the tasks would be to call the local paper to get a score if the Sea...

  3. Game of year: Clinton 20, Burlington 17

    David Schoenfield

    The Midwest League isn't known for high-scoring games, so a 20-17 score was certainly unusual enough. But here's the kicker: The Clinton LumberKings, Class A affiliate of the Mariners, trailed 17-1! They scored six runs in the sixth, five in the eigh...

  5. Jones understandably sick of Tanaka talk

    David Schoenfield

    You know, I don't really blame Adam Jones all that much. Here he is, a three-time All-Star, a terrific all-around player -- he, Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout are the only three players to score 100 runs each of the past two seasons and he's ninth in ...

    David Schoenfield

    A few quick thoughts as we continue to count down to Opening Day ... It's always fun to see 22-5 scores, even in spring training -- especially when the game happens in Florida and not Arizona. That was the Pirates beating the Blue Jays as they ...

  8. Quick thoughts: An unlikely hero in Gomes

    David Schoenfield

    Another fun World Series game, with big hits, big decisions and a final score of Boston 4, St. Louis 2. Hero: Jonny Gomes. Inserted into the lineup only as a replacement for Shane Victorino, who couldn't go because of lower back tightness, Gomes w...

  10. Scherzer, Reddick and other thoughts

    David Schoenfield

    Thoughts on a game that was about a million times more exciting than even the 8-6 final score would indicate -- a win for the Detroit Tigers over the Oakland Athletics that sends this series back to Oakland for Game 5. 1. Max Scherzer, pitching in...

  11. Rays win individual battles, move on

    David Schoenfield

    Don't let the final score fool you: This was an interesting game, from Danny Salazar looking like the second coming of Bob Feller to sabermetric whipping boy Delmon Young hitting another postseason home run to the Cleveland Indians creating one scori...

  13. How things have changed in 10 years

    David Schoenfield

    The Red Sox scored 20 runs last night, which prompted me to check the last they did that: It was 2003, against the Marlins. Here's the box score. Pretty crazy game. Carl Pavano started for the Marlins and gave up six hits and in a row and was removed...

  15. Team of the future in N.Y.? It's the Mets

    David Schoenfield

    There's a team in New York that's worth watching these days, one that has struggled to score runs much of the season, has been entangled in some legal issues and is in need of a shortstop. I'm talking, of course, about the New York Mets. Just l...

    David Schoenfield

    Quick thoughts on Wednesday's games ... The Orioles continue to impress, beating the Royals 5-3, improving to 21-13. They only had five hits, but took advantage of three Kansas City errors, and the bullpen backed up Chris Tillman with three score...
