  • Johnny Football is unlikable, but he can sure play quarterback
    John Gambadoro | September 17, 2013 8:30 am
    Say what you want about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Yes, he is a punk. Yes, he thinks he is above the law. Yes, his actions on and off the field make you hate him and root against him. But...
  • Sunday you saw the typical Carson Palmer, good and bad
    John Gambadoro | September 09, 2013 11:50 am
    It would and will be easy to bag on Levi Brown this week and all year. He is awful and everyone knows it. But instead of the obvious let's break down Carson Palmer. I've never been a big fan....

    John Gambadoro | September 06, 2013 11:27 am
    The season begins Sunday with a new head coach, a new general manager, a new quarterback and new hope for the Arizona Cardinals. After a disappointing season which saw Arizona start 4-0 and then lose 11...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers has got two trades absolutely right
    John Gambadoro | August 28, 2013 9:55 am
    There have been quite a few moves this season that have backfired on Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers. See: Joe Thatcher, Tony Sipp, Heath Bell, Cody Ross, Jason Kubel (which began backfiring...
  • With Jonathan Cooper out, here are other players the Arizona Cardinals can't afford to lose
    John Gambadoro | August 27, 2013 9:41 am
    With all the injuries and sloppy play, it is hard to take many positives out of Cardinals' preseason game number three with the Chargers. Arizona clearly has some work to do to become a good football...
  • The Devil Went Down to L.A.
    John Gambadoro | August 15, 2013 8:14 am
    After watching the Dodgers win yet again, I am thoroughly convinced that Don Mattingly made a deal with the Devil. And I believe it went something like this: The Devil went down to Los Angeles He...
  • It's nice to focus on Tyrann Mathieu's football ability
    John Gambadoro | August 14, 2013 2:10 pm
    The great thing about Tyrann Mathieu is that we are finally talking about what he is doing on the field and not off of it. Since the talented but troubled former LSU star was selected by Arizona in...

    John Gambadoro | August 08, 2013 12:46 pm
    The Phoenix Suns have until August 31 to release Michael Beasley, and it won't take that long. The troubled former number 2 overall pick has worn out his welcome in the Valley of the Sun, and will soon...
  • Ian Kennedy feels mixed emotions after trade from Arizona Diamondbacks
    John Gambadoro | July 31, 2013 2:25 pm
    I spent some time talking to new San Diego Padre Ian Kennedy Wednesday. He told me he was both "bummed" and "excited" about the news that he was traded. He was also thankful that Diamondbacks general...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks never had interest in Jake Peavy
    John Gambadoro | July 31, 2013 8:13 am
    First let's cut to the chase -- the Arizona Diamondbacks were never interested in Jake Peavy and they shouldn't have been. Not considering that they would have had to pay him some $20 million between now...
  • John Abraham is a great signing by the Arizona Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | July 26, 2013 10:39 am
    The Arizona Cardinals have flopped in signing aging veteran free agents in the past. See Alan Faneca, Joey Porter, Emmitt Smith, Edgerrin James. Sometimes you catch lightning in a bottle (Kurt Warner)...
  • Mariano Rivera's pending retirement stirs mixed emotions
    John Gambadoro | July 17, 2013 8:08 am
    I have so many mixed emotions when it comes to Mariano Rivera and his pending retirement. I'm a lifelong Yankee fan whose first nickname, even before Gambo, was 'Yankee' in the St. Gerard's Little League....
  • Wondering why the Suns didn't bring back Wesley Johnson?
    John Gambadoro | July 16, 2013 8:19 am
    I have received a few emails from listeners wanting to know why the Phoenix Suns didn't keep Wesley Johnson. I'm not sure why anyone cares about the small forward who has been a bust since being the fourth...
  • Eric Bledsoe trade a good one for Phoenix Suns
    John Gambadoro | July 02, 2013 4:55 pm
    Let's break down the first big trade of the Ryan McDonough era. I always believe the team that gets the best player wins the trade, and Phoenix got the best player here. In getting Eric Bledsoe, the...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks need more from Trevor Cahill
    John Gambadoro | June 30, 2013 11:59 pm
    It doesn't matter what he did in April or May or even June for that matter. What matters is that overall Trevor Cahill is 3-10 with an ERA of 4.66. He is on pace to shatter the Diamondbacks record of losses...
  • Second of Suns' first-round picks may find a gem
    John Gambadoro | June 26, 2013 12:52 pm

  • If it comes to it, Suns should pick Ben McLemore over Victor Oladipo
    John Gambadoro | June 26, 2013 8:17 am
    When you are picking as high as the Phoenix Suns are in the NBA Draft, the chances of landing a good player are, well, pretty good. But this draft shouldn't be about landing a good player for Phoenix --...
  • It's amazing the D-backs are in first place in NL West
    John Gambadoro | June 18, 2013 4:04 pm
    The most amazing thing to me about the Diamondbacks being in first place is that they are doing it with just one of their starting pitchers having a winning record. I wouldn't be surprised if they are...
  • Josh Collmenter is the unsung hero of the Diamondbacks' pitching staff
    John Gambadoro | June 13, 2013 12:06 pm
    He won't be going to the All-Star game. He won't get any Cy Young votes. But outside of Patrick Corbin, he has been the Arizona Diamondbacks' most important pitcher. He is Josh Collmenter, and he...
  • Patterson, ASU deserve credit for standing up to Notre Dame
    John Gambadoro | June 12, 2013 12:16 pm
    Memo to Notre Dame: take this pitchfork and shove it where the sun doesn't shine. That is exactly what ASU Athletic Director Steve Patterson told Notre Dame when they attempted to cancel their game...
