  1. NL All-Star debate: Vote Molina or Lucroy?

    David Schoenfield

    It's about time somebody in baseball lightens up. So, thank you, Milwaukee Brewers marketing department, for this wonderful video that has a little fun with the All-Star voting while simultaneously satirizing those ridiculous political ads. In the...

  2. Proof that fans don't care about PEDs

    David Schoenfield

    The latest All-Star voting results were announced on Monday and right now your American League starting lineup would include Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera and Orioles designated hitter Nelson Cruz. I think we know what those two have in commo...

  3. Mariners already having worst spring ever

    David Schoenfield

    It's not even March yet! The Mariners' first official workout was today! And yet ... and yet ... Hisashi Iwakuma, third in last year's American League Cy Young voting, will miss 4-to-6 weeks with a strained tendon in his finger, meaning he like...

  4. The problem with the Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

    It's been a week since the Hall of Fame announcement, and while the Baseball Writers' Association elected Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas -- its first three-member class since 1999 -- there was still a lot of fallout from the voting results...

  5. 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...

  6. The Hall of Fame mess gets messier

    David Schoenfield

    Buster Olney wrote about the Hall of Fame in his Monday blog, pointing out a big problem many of the BBWAA voters will have in filling out their ballots next month: not enough room. Buster would like to vote for at least 16 players, but the voting ru...

  7. Should postseason matter in HOF voting?

    David Schoenfield

    As Carlos Beltran delivers more big postseason hits this October for the St. Louis Cardinals, talk about him as a potential Hall of Famer has increased, carrying over from discussions that began in the regular season.'s Jerry Crasnick wrote ...

  8. Ignore win total, Kershaw is MVP candidate

    David Schoenfield

    Wins still matter. Well, of course wins matter, you know that. That's why we play the game. I mean wins for pitchers still matter in things such as Cy Young or MVP votings. Which gets us to Clayton Kershaw. With about 50 games remaining, the Na...

  10. Time to discuss Beltran's Hall of Fame case

    David Schoenfield

    Carlos Beltran leads National League outfielders in All-Star voting, which I guess is interesting only if you care about All-Star voting or if you thought if any Cardinals outfielder would get a boost from hometown cyber-stuffing it would be Matt Hol...

  11. Hall of Fame voting hits a new low

    David Schoenfield

    Is this a sad day for baseball? Maybe not. There will be another election next year and one the year after that. I presume onward into the future players will get elected. But this year? The Baseball Writers' Association of America struck out. Nob...

  12. Hall of Fame day: What they're saying

    David Schoenfield

    There are really three issues surrounding the Hall of Fame voting results that will be announced at 2 p.m. ET: 1. What to do with the steroids guys. 2. Whether you (or, I should say, the voters from the Baseball Writers Association of America) be...

  13. Bagwell fans: Don't hate on Hall voters

    David Schoenfield

    On Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. ET, the Hall of Fame voting results will be announced. It's possible that Jack Morris makes it in, and maybe Craig Biggio makes it in, and maybe nobody makes it in. One guy who won't make it in is Jeff Bagwell, who...

  14. More fun with player comparisons

    David Schoenfield

    We did two earlier. Let's try another one. Player A is a regarded as a star player, a slick-fielding second baseman who has won three Gold Glove Awards, has power and finished 13th in the MVP voting in 2012. Player B is a young player with holes i...

  15. Mike Schmidt's idea to fix the Hall of Fame

    David Schoenfield

    I heard a clip of an interview with Mike Schmidt on MLB Network Radio on Monday in which the Hall of Famer suggested a new voting process is necessary for the Hall of Fame. His idea was to have the writers vote for 10 finalists and then have some sor...

  16. Your 2012 MLB All-Star team

    David Schoenfield

    I've always thought Major League Baseball should announce an official end-of-season All-Star team. You could have different voting components -- 25 percent computer, 25 percent fans, 25 percent players and managers, 25 percent media, something like t...
