    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....

    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...

    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...

    John Gambadoro | June 12, 2013 12:16 pm

    John Gambadoro | June 06, 2013 12:47 pm
    I can fully understand the Arizona Diamondbacks wanting to get the word out to its fans to vote for Paul Goldschmidt for the National League All-Star team. What I don't understand is anyone being...

    John Gambadoro | June 05, 2013 12:29 pm
    Forget the 50-game suspension. Forget the 100-game suspension. If you really want to get these Major League baseball players to stop using performance enhancing drugs then there is one and only one solution...

    John Gambadoro | May 30, 2013 11:29 am

    John Gambadoro | May 23, 2013 12:36 pm

  • Don't compare Martin Prado to Justin Upton
    John Gambadoro | May 14, 2013 9:03 pm

    John Gambadoro | May 08, 2013 11:03 am
    The Phoenix Suns say that Lindsey Hunter is still a candidate for the head coaching vacancy, but he has about a snowball's chance in hell of actually getting the job. I'm sure at some point Hunter...
