Patrick Peterson is a problem (but not the Cardinals')
Paul Calvisi | October 08, 2013 1:08 pmBy the time he reaches retirement, P-Twice will become known as P-Thrice. Not just for playing offense, defense and special teams, but that third initial will stand for Pro Bowler. The letters will soon...
No such thing as margin of victory
Paul Calvisi | October 01, 2013 1:13 pmDuring the NFL season, we constantly remind ourselves of the following: just because a team is close on the scoreboard that does not mean a team is close in the standings. Look no further than the...
Hey Dodgers -- thank you!
Paul Calvisi | September 20, 2013 11:58 amLast week, while mired in a sleep-deprived stupor, I managed to mistakenly pop my contact lenses into the wrong eyes. Then, while watching the Dodgers clinch the NL West crown at Chase Field on Thursday,...
Churn, baby, churn
Paul Calvisi | August 22, 2013 1:04 pm"We will always keep the foot on the pedal, I promise you that." In the corner office with a view of the practice field, we're picturing a blender. Each morning, Cardinals General Manager Steve...
Tiger traps himself

I pity the game of baseball
Paul Calvisi | August 05, 2013 12:39 pmI feel sorry for baseball. Not the players on the field or the suits in the suites. Not even baseball fans, even though they still remain (mostly) innocent bystanders. Instead, I offer sincere condolences...

El Luchador saves the D-backs!
Paul Calvisi | July 22, 2013 1:30 pm"I don't like it. But I don't hate it. Thing is, I just don't get it." That was my response in the brief time I was allotted to answer a question about my thoughts on the D-backs new Luchador mascot. (See, it was posed by our attention-span-challenged KTAR-FM morning news folks, so I've learned to reply in monosyllabic fashion. Stick and move.)
Hey D-backs -- look down to go up
Paul Calvisi | July 17, 2013 1:46 pmIf only we had a crystal (base)ball to forecast the future. Thing is, to date, the pocket protector dorks, err dudes in R&D, are still working on that. However, we do have the recent Futures Game...
