  2. Great pitchers sometimes have bad games

    David Schoenfield

  3. Current list of personal catchers

    Doug Mittler

    For obvious reasons, certain pitchers sometimes are more comfortable throwing to a particular catcher, even though they are often reluctant to state that publicly in order to avoid insulting the bypassed backstop. Steve Carlton, for example, enjo...

  4. Roy Halladay isn't done just yet

    Bill Baer

    David Schoenfield

    The highlight of Tuesday's chat session: If you could have any combination of four pitches from history, which would you take? Nolan Ryan's fastball? Pedro Martinez's changeup? Steve Carlton's slider? Phil Niekro's knuckleball? We had fun with this i...

  7. Chase Utley fuels the confusion

    Jayson Stark

    CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Chase Utley finally spoke Sunday. So that was good. Not that he was in danger of breaking Steve Carlton's all-time Phillies record for consecutive weeks not speaking (512). But after five weeks of no-comments and "I've-...

  9. A look into C.J. Wilson's future ...

    David Schoenfield

    Nobody seems to want to believe in C.J. Wilson. I haven't seen anybody suggest, "Yes, he's an ace! Give him $100 million!" Maybe it's the years he spent as a nondescript middle reliever, maybe it's the postseason performance (21 runs allowed in 28 in...

    The Common Man

    The Minnesota Twins do seem awfully down on their ace, Francisco Liriano, lately. Between openly criticizing his offseason workouts, giving the Opening Day start to Carl Pavano and exploring trade offers, it sounds as though the club is doing its be...
