    David Schoenfield

    We have games! Real games! Well, real spring training games, which are better than games against college teams and much better than reports about a pitcher who looked good throwing batting practice. We start the spring training schedule with five gam...

  5. Phillies fans already giving up on 2015

    David Schoenfield

    The first unofficial game of spring training took place on Sunday, with the Phillies losing 6-2 to Tampa. That's the University of Tampa, a Division II program, not the Tampa that's in the major leagues. When I first saw the score I assumed that the ...

  8. Giancarlo Stanton and inside fastballs

    Spring training games start this week. It's baseball, and that's a good thing, even if it's not baseball that is all that important. But there are things to watch for, and at the top of that list is the return of Giancarlo Stanton, now with a funky n...

  9. Studying the leadoff hitters: AL

    David Schoenfield

    I don't know if this is a bad era for leadoff hitters or not, or simply a reflection of the pitching-dominant era we're in right now. There are fewer good hitters overall thus it reasons that we'd have fewer good leadoff hitters. It strikes me tha...

  13. K-Rod a risky bet for Brewers as closer

    David Schoenfield

    I admit: I've been predicting the demise of Francisco Rodriguez for years. Remember when he set the single-season record with 62 saves for the Angels back in 2008 and then signed with the Mets in 2009 as a free agent? He had 35 saves for the Mets ...

  17. How much will Ortiz owe at end of year?

    David Schoenfield

    In the most predictable quote of spring training, David Ortiz doesn't like the pace of play rules that will attempt to force batters to remain in the batter's box between pitches. The best part of Big Papi's rant is that he apparently wasn't aware...
