  2. Robin Yount was just a three-time All-Star

    David Schoenfield

    Robin Yount was a great player: A two-time MVP, a first-ballot Hall of Famer, over 3,000 hits. Yet he made just three All-Star teams in his career. Here are the fewest All-Star selections for position players who debuted after 1933, the year of th...

    The 2013 MLB draft is coming up, with the first round set for June 6, and when each team makes its first-round selection, each will be drafting an amateur player it believes will turn into an All-Star. In reality, front offices know the odds of d...

  8. Reds' anger toward La Russa misplaced

    David Schoenfield

    The Cincinnati Reds are angry. Dusty Baker is very angry, accusing Tony La Russa of deliberately bypassing Johnny Cueto and Brandon Phillips in making his All-Star selections because of the infamous Reds-Cardinals brawl in 2010. "A snub like that ...

  9. All-Star rosters full of hits and misses

    David Schoenfield

    My favorite All-Star selection in the past decade was reliever Mike Williams of the Pirates in 2003. At the break, he had 25 saves ... but a 6.44 ERA. He was the Pirates' lone representative, of course, although the club did have other worthy options...

  12. Have we seen the last of Vladimir Guerrero?

    David Schoenfield

    Back in February of 1997, I owned the second selection in the rookie draft of my fantasy league. It was a little bittersweet, because Andruw Jones was the obvious No. 1 pick. If you remember, Jones was the 19-year-old wunderkind who had hit .400 in t...

  14. Rising to stardom: Dustin Pedroia

    David Schoenfield

    The Red Sox made Dustin Pedroia a second-round pick 2004. They didn't have a first-round pick that year, so he was their selection. He wasn't big, didn't have much power and wasn't particularly fast. He was just a baseball player. A shortstop at A...

    The Milwaukee Brewers made Prince Fielder the seventh overall selection in the 2002 draft, so his rise to stardom and MVP candidacy can't be considered a complete surprise. Still, he was one of the more controversial top-10 picks of the past decade, ...
