  • 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
    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...
  • Goldschmidt's 3rd in All-Star voting, and I'm okay with it
    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...
  • Baseball wants to stop cheating? Hit the players where it hurts the most
    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...
  • Justin Upton not only player D-backs parted with
    John Gambadoro | May 30, 2013 11:29 am
    We have paid so much attention to Justin Upton and his amazing April and awful May, and rightfully so. Upton was the first overall pick and the player that was supposed to be a superstar for the...
  • Michael Crabtree injury may benefit Arizona Cardinals most
    John Gambadoro | May 23, 2013 12:36 pm
    The potential season-ending Achilles injury to Michael Crabtree could have a huge effect on the NFC West race this season. Crabtree, who had 85 catches for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns last season,...

  • Don't compare Martin Prado to Justin Upton
    John Gambadoro | May 14, 2013 9:03 pm
    By now the Justin Upton trade has been evaluated every which way possible. And unfortunately for Martin Prado, he will always be compared to the former D-backs' top overall pick, and there is not much...
  • These are the candidates to be the Suns' next head coach
    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...
  • D-backs will be patient with bullpen -- they have to be
    John Gambadoro | May 02, 2013 1:04 pm
    There is no easy answer, no quick fix. The Arizona Diamondbacks' bullpen is abysmal with an astonishing 10 blown saves in just a month of baseball. The best news for the Diamondbacks is they can't blow...
  • Forget the other numbers, Justin Upton has 11 homers!
    John Gambadoro | April 24, 2013 12:49 pm
    I'm sure that Arizona is happy with Martin Prado, he is a good player and fit a need for the Diamondbacks. I'm also sure that if Justin Upton had stayed here, he wouldn't be off to this hot of a start....
  • Patrick Corbin proving to be another D-back with a bright future
    John Gambadoro | April 19, 2013 1:41 pm
    In his first game, Patrick Corbin shut down the Milwaukee Brewers over six innings in a 9-2 Diamondbacks win. He followed that up by outdueling Clayton Kershaw by throwing six shutout innings in a 3-0...
  • Wesley Johnson is a nice player, but replaceable
    John Gambadoro | April 16, 2013 2:10 pm
    This is going to be one busy and exciting offseason for the Phoenix Suns. With two first round draft picks, decisions to be made on the general manager and the interim coach and, of course, what to do...
  • Lindsey Hunter's fate could be sealed
    John Gambadoro | April 10, 2013 2:51 pm
    The decision should come down in the next 10 days, maybe sooner. Will Lindsey Hunter be back as coach of the Phoenix Suns next season? If this week is any indication, that answer will be 'no.' I...
  • Suns should at least consider Michigan's Trey Burke
    John Gambadoro | April 09, 2013 11:42 am
    Now that the college basketball season is over, the Phoenix Suns -- whose season has been over for a few months now -- can turn their attention to the NBA Draft figuring to have a top 4 pick. And...

    John Gambadoro | April 05, 2013 2:22 pm

  • Will Larry Scott's ego prevent him from doing the right thing?
    John Gambadoro | April 02, 2013 1:50 pm
    How Ed "T 'em up" Rush still has a job with the Pac-12 as its coordinator of officials is beyond comprehension. How Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott can back an investigation that said Rush's bounty...
  • Timing of Kevin Ware's injury could have factored in Louisville win
    John Gambadoro | April 01, 2013 2:52 pm
    The image of Louisville's Kevin Ware lying on the court near the Cardinal bench in Indianapolis is not one I care to remember. I saw the replay once and that was enough for me. It was easily one of...
  • Just say 'no' to Carson Palmer, Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | March 28, 2013 5:18 pm
    Been there done that and nine times out of ten, it doesn't work. The Arizona Cardinals should just say 'no' to another retread quarterback in Carson Palmer and try something very foreign to them --...

    John Gambadoro | March 26, 2013 12:38 pm
