Burns & Gambo

  • Addison Reed is the D-backs' closer, and that's how it should be
    John Gambadoro | May 14, 2014 2:31 pm
    Addison Reed has two blown saves, an ERA of 5.03 and has given up a mind-boggling six home runs in 19.2 innings. But despite calls to the contrary, he needs to remain the closer for the Arizona Diamondbacks....
  • Arizona Cardinals produce functional draft class
    Dave Burns | May 13, 2014 11:36 am
    Functional. That's the word I keep coming back to when thinking about the Cardinals' 2014 draft. Not splashy. Not overly sexy. Nothing that dazzles. Just…functional. Practical. A hard-hitting...
  • Taking a look at the Arizona Cardinals' 2014 draft class
    John Gambadoro | May 12, 2014 10:15 am
    There is nothing that pops out of the Cardinals' draft that wows me, and that's perfectly fine as long as they ended up with quality football players that can help this team take the next step. Arizona...
  • Gambo pays up in bet with Mark May, dresses up like leprachaun
    Arizona Sports | May 08, 2014 5:04 pm
    A bet is a bet, and Arizona Sports 98.7 FM's John Gambadoro was more than happy to oblige. Before the Pac-12 Championship Game between ASU and Stanford, Gambadoro agreed to a wager with guest...
  • Pau Gasol to the Phoenix Suns makes a lot of sense
    John Gambadoro | April 18, 2014 2:51 pm
    He wasn't worth a first-round pick back at the trade deadline, although in hindsight he may have very well been able to push Phoenix into the playoffs. But now that he is set to be a free agent in July,...
  • Diamondbacks are no easy fix, but who should get the chance?
    John Gambadoro | April 16, 2014 4:09 pm
    The problem with the Arizona Diamondbacks is that there is no easy fix. In many ways they are stuck with what they have: the team general manager Kevin Towers put together. Outside of top prospect Archie...
  • Hopefully Zach Mettenberger didn't look too good
    Dave Burns | April 10, 2014 12:15 pm
    Three months ago I was intrigued. Now it's a different word. It's certainly not "obsessed," though my co-host might disagree. It's probably closer to "hopeful." I am hopeful that Zach Mettenberger...
  • Postseason or higher draft pick? That is the question for the Phoenix Suns
    John Gambadoro | April 03, 2014 2:50 pm
    We had quite a spirited debate about the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday's edition of Burns and Gambo. It centered around the circumstances Phoenix would be facing if they make the playoffs and if...
  • When it comes to the Phoenix Suns, disappointment is in the eye of the beholder
    Dave Burns | March 26, 2014 9:35 am
    Disappointment, I suppose, is in the eye of the beholder. At the moment I'm writing this, the Suns are not a playoff team. The Mavericks beat the Thunder on Tuesday night, shoving the Suns back out...
  • Cornhole Cup a smashing success, Shake & Bake takes the title
    Arizona Sports | March 24, 2014 1:46 pm
    The fourth annual Arizona Sports Cornhole Cup, benefiting the Prostate On-Site Project, ended with great success on Saturday in downtown Phoenix. The sold out event with 128 teams played nearly...
  • Losing Patrick Corbin doesn't spell doom for the Arizona Diamondbacks
    John Gambadoro | March 18, 2014 9:34 am
    OK, let's get one thing straight here -- it's March 18. The baseball season hasn't even started. There are still 162 games left to be played. So no, likely losing Patrick Corbin for the season does not...
  • A story without a bad guy isn't much of a story
    Dave Burns | March 12, 2014 12:39 pm
    According to, the best movie bad guy of all time is The Joker, as played by Heath Ledger. Darth Vader is two. Hannibal Lecter third. Agent Smith from The Matrix is ninth. Gordon Gecko...
  • Oreos, routers and left tackles: Things you should overpay for
    Dave Burns | February 25, 2014 11:15 am
    There are certain things in life I am willing to over pay for. Real Oreo cookies and not the generic grocery store brand. Wireless internet routers. A good ballpoint pen. And left tackles. Ian...
  • Herb Sendek is doing his best coaching job since arriving in Tempe
    John Gambadoro | February 17, 2014 8:30 pm
    What I'm about to say has very little to do with the Arizona game. Sure, beating your rival whom happened to be the No. 2 team in the country 69-66 in double overtime helps. But it's not like Arizona...
  • Web series chronicles Steve Nash's fight to save NBA career
    Arizona Sports | February 13, 2014 2:02 pm
    Steve Nash is in his second season with the Los Angeles Lakers, but by all accounts his tenure in Tinseltown has not gone according to plan. The point guard was limited to just 50 games last season...
  • College basketball fans: the good, the bad and the real losers
    Dave Burns | February 11, 2014 10:11 am
    I'll let you in on a little secret: The student section at ASU basketball games is quietly one of my top ten favorite things about sports in this town. They're fun. Creative. Passionate. I'm sure...
  • Good to see hard work pay off for ASU's Jordan Bachynski
    John Gambadoro | February 07, 2014 1:07 pm
    There was a feeling of enjoyment watching Jordan Bachynski set the Pac-12 career record for blocked shots Thursday night in a win over Oregon State at Wells Fargo Arena. Bachynski is not James Harden,...
  • NHL should bring an outdoor game to Arizona
    John Gambadoro | January 29, 2014 2:54 pm
    It's time for Arizona to join the NHL winter outdoor game party. And hey, Commissioner Bettman, we kind of think you owe us one from losing the All-Star game to the lockout a few years back. Yes,...
  • With the Phoenix Suns, we're all looking for THE reason
    Dave Burns | January 29, 2014 11:22 am
    We're all looking for THE reason. As if there is just one. As if you can narrow down exactly why the Suns bear no resemblance to the Sherman Tank the entire NBA expected this season. Is it Jeff...
