    David Schoenfield

    Down 2-0 in the series, what's the worst thing that could happen to the Angels other than a pop fly into shallow right field on which Mike Trout, Kole Calhoun, Howie Kendrick and Albert Pujols all collide and get knocked out of the game? How about...

  9. 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...
