  3. Cespedes joins Griffey as Derby legend

    David Schoenfield

    If you're wondering why there's a baseball-wide dearth of right-handed power, this is why. It's because Giancarlo Stanton has it all.- Bryan Grosnick (@bgrosnick) July 15, 2014 That was my favorite tweet of the night about the Home Run Derby....

  4. One last post about those awesome Padres

    David Schoenfield

    So the Padres did it: They went 1-for-24 on Monday and finished June with a .171 batting average -- the lowest team average for a month since the lively ball era began in 1920. This pretty much says it all (yes, I'm quoting my own tweet here): ...

  5. What Jeter meant to Yankees fans

    David Schoenfield

    After Derek Jeter announced Wednesday that he will retire at the end of the 2014 season, I saw a tweet from the Atlanta Braves asking if Freddie Freeman is the face of baseball, the implication being that Jeter was that face and the position will be ...

  6. One thing Hall of Fame voters get wrong

    David Schoenfield

    Everybody kind of agrees that the Hall of Fame voting process is a mess right now. Well, not everyone. I see reader comments and tweets saying everything is fine, that they're OK with the steroid guys not getting in -- although I'm not exactly sure w...

  7. The best organization in baseball

    David Schoenfield

    When the Cardinals won last night, it was interesting to see the reaction on Twitter. There was a lot of bitterness directed towards the team and their fans. I saw many tweets from Cardinals fans bashing Albert Pujols, so easily and pathetically dism...

  8. Time to return to balanced schedule

    David Schoenfield

    Our old ESPN colleague Peter Gammons had a strongly worded series of tweets a couple days ago: You know, it's amazing it took this long for an organization to realize the potential benefits of purposely being awful, which is what the Astros ar...

  9. Impossible Giancarlo Stanton trade ideas

    David Schoenfield

    We've heard the rumors and seen the tweets and gone to bed dreaming: The Miami Marlins will listen to offers for Giancarlo Stanton. Now, listening to offers isn't the same thing as actively looking to make a deal, and assistant GM Dan Jennings told J...

  11. Aroldis Chapman's velocity in decline

    David Schoenfield

    As the Cincinnati Reds cruise to the NL Central division title, we suddenly have something to pay attention to: Aroldis Chapman's fastball. And I don't mean in a "Did he really just do that?" way. Per Dave Cameron's tweet, here's Chapman's velocit...

  15. Blue Jays could be another beast in AL East

    David Schoenfield

    If you believe the various tweets, rumors and stories out there, the Toronto Blue Jays may or may not have been the high bidder for Yu Darvish, and they may or may not be in on Prince Fielder. I'll say this: If both of those guys end up in a Toron...
