  2. Is Mark Teixeira done as a good player?

    David Schoenfield

    From Tuesday's chat: Alex (New York): Simply put, is Mark Teixeira DONE? Teixeira is facing season-ending surgery on his wrist, but I assumed Alex was asking if Teixeira is done not just for 2013 but for beyond. In other words: Are his days as ...

  4. Twenty-seven reasons Yankees will collapse

    David Schoenfield

    Confession: I spent all offseason believing the Yankees would still rank among the American League's elite teams in 2013. After all, despite the woeful hitting in the postseason, this was still a team that won 95 games and had the second-best run dif...

    David Schoenfield

    It began when Josh Hamilton dropped that routine fly ball in the final game of the regular season and has carried over into the postseason: We haven't exactly seen a lot of elegant baseball so far. Consider some of what we've seen: The Braves ...

  9. Curtis Granderson's weird numbers

    David Schoenfield

    Curtis Granderson's statistical line has become so unusual that Eric Karabell and I discussed it briefly on Thursday's Baseball Today show. Granderson is hitting .244 with 30 home runs and slugging .498. He's on pace for 44 home runs, leading Eric to...

  10. Cubs fans: Curb your enthusiasm for Rizzo

    David Schoenfield

    I'm worried for Anthony Rizzo: I fear that Cubs fans have built up their new first baseman as a savior in blue tights and red cape, the new Joey Votto or the next Mark Teixeira, a slugger supreme to build the next winning Cubs team around. And may...

  13. Reds should hold on to Joey Votto

    David Schoenfield

    Trade Joey Votto now, the theory goes. The Cincinnati Reds have him for two seasons until he becomes a free agent. He's one of the best players in the game. As a small-market franchise, the Reds will be unlikely to afford him when he hits the market....

  15. Tigers shock Yankees in dramatic Game 5

    David Schoenfield

    I was sure Alex Rodriguez was going to pop one out. I was pretty sure Mark Teixeira was going to pop one out. I knew Nick Swisher was going to knock one over the short porch in right field, probably down the line and into the first row. That...

    David Schoenfield

    Via Aaron Gleeman at Hardball Talk, after Wednesday's Yankees-Red Sox game that lasted 3 hours, 16 minutes, Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira told the New York Times, "It's brutal. I can't stand playing a nine-inning game in four hours. It's not ba...
