  2. Monday morning random thoughts

    David Schoenfield

    Let's catch up on a few things ... I enjoyed the two games from Australia, even getting up at 4 a.m. to watch the opener. Clayton Kershaw didn't really have his best stuff in that game, with his fastball velocity way down, averaging 88.3 mph. R...

    David Schoenfield

    After posting Monday's scouting report on Masahiro Tanaka, Patrick Newman NPB Tracker web site on Japanese baseball, sent me an excellent link via Twitter with more information on Tanaka's pitches. The data only goes through 2012 but is still help...

  4. Don't throw Allen Craig a fastball

    David Schoenfield

    This could be one of those games. Not a momentum game, since that's a term that attempts to describe mass and velocity of an object, not something that happens in the standings. No, it's more like one of those games you remember when the season is ov...

    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...

  9. David Price looks like Cy Young contender

    David Schoenfield

    There's something simple and comforting about watching David Price pitch. No trick pitches, no cutter or split-finger or sidearm slurve, nothing ornamental in his delivery, just rear back and sling that leather sphere with a high degree of velocity. ...

  10. It's early! Don't panic, don't overreact

    David Schoenfield

    Of course, it's much more fun to overanalyze everything that goes on in the first few weeks of a baseball season. Albert Pujols has lost it! CC Sabathia's velocity is down! Matt Kemp is going to have the greatest season of all time! The Red Sox are t...

  12. Andy Pettitte's back! What does it mean?

    David Schoenfield

    Well, this season just got even more interesting with the announcement that Andy Pettitte will be returning to the New York Yankees. The cynic would suggest that maybe the New York Yankees are worried about Michael Pineda's velocity. The reality i...

  13. Links: Pineda's fastball, Willis released

    David Schoenfield

    One of the big stories of spring training -- or perhaps most overblown -- has been the velocity of Michael Pineda's fastball. Andrew Marchand of has the report on Pineda's Thursday start, in which his fastball clocked 90-92 mph but hi...
