  1. All-Star reaction: A groovy ending for Jeter

    David Schoenfield

    One thing about Derek Jeter: He has a way of rising to the occasion. As New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said last year, when Jeter came off the disabled list and hit a home run in his first game back, "He's a movie is what he is." Indeed, Jet...

  2. Ten biggest stories of the first half

    David Schoenfield

    OK, we're actually well past 81 games, but we tend to divide the season at the All-Star break, even if that's not the true halfway point. Here's my list of the 10 biggest stories of the first half: 1. The rash of Tommy John surgeries. On the he...

  3. The best rookie seasons of all time

    David Schoenfield

    The reason for doing this piece should be pretty obvious: Masahiro Tanaka is 11-2 with a 2.11 ERA, leading the American League in wins and ERA. He's not just the clear best rookie so far but a Cy Young and MVP contender. Tanaka makes his 16th star...

    David Schoenfield

    Heading into Wednesday's game, Troy Tulowitzki leads all qualified hitters in batting average (.354), on-base percentage (.447) and slugging percentage (.634). We can call that the triple-slash Triple Crown. And if you're doing that, you're the best ...

  5. The best player in baseball

    David Schoenfield

    Sorry, Miggy. Your hitting feats are legendary. You'll be in the Hall of Fame some day, on the short list of best right-handed batsmen the game has ever seen. You know you're an all-timer when you're hitting .319 and on pace for 135 RBIs and nobody i...

  7. Thursday afternoon reading list

    David Schoenfield

    George Springer is red hot -- his nine home runs this month are the most by a rookie in May since Mark McGwire hit 15 in 1987 -- and Justin Havens breaks down his rapid improvement at the plate in just a few short weeks in the majors. I was a little ...

  8. Trout's strikeouts a cause for concern

    David Schoenfield

    The best player in baseball is still one of the best all-around players in the game. Mike Trout is tied for fourth among position players in Baseball-Reference WAR and second among position players in FanGraphs WAR. He's hitting .272/.359/.524, good ...

  9. Martin Maldonado, player of the month!

    David Schoenfield

    It was caught the month for Brewers backup catcher Martin Maldonado. Consider: He literally knocked the cover off the ball against the Pirates a couple weeks ago. He was in the middle of the Carlos Gomez-Gerrit Cole spat and cold-cocked Pirat...

  11. Trout, Harper ready for first showdown

    David Schoenfield

    Mike Trout and Bryce Harper will forever be linked after they burst on to the scene in 2012, Trout as an MVP candidate as a 20-year-old, Harper with maybe the best season ever by a 19-year-old position player. As much as we've talked about them the p...

  12. Mike Trout finally steals a base

    David Schoenfield

    Mike Trout hit a two-run game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Tuesday night. A less dramatic play came in the 11th when Trout reached on an infield single and stole second base -- his first steal of the season. After Albert Pujols was intent...

  13. Chat wrap: Uggla, Braves, Nationals, more

    David Schoenfield

    Well, needless to say we talked about Dan Uggla in Tuesday's chat. Braves and Nationals fans got into a heated war of worlds. We discussed instant replay. Plus Miguel Cabrera's slow start, Mike Trout's lack of steal, whether pitchers are cheating and...

  14. 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 ...

  15. Stop sliding headfirst into first base!

    David Schoenfield

  16. Chat wrap: Braun, Posey, best pitches

    David Schoenfield

    Here's Tuesday's chat wrap. Was it OK that Brewers fans cheered Ryan Braun? Is Jose Fernandez's slider the most unhittable pitch in the game? Should Buster Posey be mentioned in the same breath as Mike Trout? Plus much more!...
