Burns & Gambo

  • Burns: Too many problems for D-backs

    Burns: Too many problems for D-backs

    The walls need painting. The tree in the backyard needs to be moved. You’ve been meaning to redo the kids bathroom. The microwave doesn’t match the rest of the appliances in the kitchen. When I think about what’s wrong with the Diamondbacks, I think about what’s wrong with my own house. I don’t know where […]
  • Gambo: Amare will be dealt

    Gambo: Amare will be dealt

    I spent a lot of time on the show Tuesday talking about trade scenarios for Amare Stoudemire. One of them was a deal with the Boston Celtics in which the Suns might be able to land the talented point guard Rajon Rondo — a player they once drafted. It’s no secret that the Celtics like […]
  • Dear Amare: Go away

    Dear Amare: Go away

    They say the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Sometimes the squeaky wheel gets left on the street to get picked up by the trash man. That’s what I think when I hear Amare Stoudemire talk. And talk. And talk some more. Just. Go. Away. The chatty Suns forward apparently made the rounds on Friday, promoting […]
  • Gambo: Time for CY to go to Reno

    Gambo: Time for CY to go to Reno

    There is a saying with injured animals that you need to put it out of its misery. That same philosophy needs to be taken by the Arizona Diamondbacks in their approach with centerfielder Chris Young. After Wednesday’s 0-for-4, 4 strikeout performance that included striking out while attempting to bunt, it is obvious Young needs someone […]
  • Burns: Voicing your opinion is OK

    Burns: Voicing your opinion is OK

    When people ask me what I do, sometimes I’ll say, “I’m a professional talker and opinion-maker.” Technically I’m an anchor and talk-show-host but they get the drift. So if part of my job is to have an opinion and passionately share that opinion with you, why on earth would I have a problem with somebody […]
  • Gambo: 5 untouchables, the rest are fair game

    Gambo: 5 untouchables, the rest are fair game

    The firing of Bob Melvin was just the first of what should be many changes coming in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. While the coaching staff had a complete makeover with a new manager, pitching coach and hitting coach, the reality is that the team on the field this year is just not good enough to […]
  • Burns: 'Backs to the Future

    Burns: ‘Backs to the Future

    I didn’t expect to learn a whole lot about AJ Hinch the manager after his first weekend of actual managing. And I didn’t. The D-backs dropped two of three to the Nationals and, as I write this, they have 19 losses, tied for the second most in baseball. First things first…I like Hinch. I’ve known […]
  • Burns: Not enough demand for the supply

    Burns: Not enough demand for the supply

    Did you ever watch the show “Arrested Development?” No? Funny, but nobody else did either. Oh it was a good show, funny, clever. But it was a ratings disaster and after a while all the write-and-email-the-network efforts didn’t save a thing. The show got cancelled. That’s the Phoenix Coyotes. In a supply-and-demand world, there just […]
  • Gambo: No one can beat Pac Man right now

    Gambo: No one can beat Pac Man right now

    Like many boxing fans I plucked down the $60 bucks on Saturday night to get the Manny Pacquiao – Ricky Hatton fight. And like many I fully expected a competitive fight between two great fighters. But what transpired was another butt whupping at the hands of Pacquiao. Now, I know a thing or two about […]
  • Burns: Why James was worth it

    Burns: Why James was worth it

    On the surface, the Arizona Cardinal career of Edgerrin James appears to be a waste of time, money and manpower. The Cardinals had the worst rushing attack in the NFL when he got here and when he left. Bookends of futility to be sure. On the field he brought nothing to the table. You can’t […]
  • Burns: Fell into the Cardinals lap

    Burns: Fell into the Cardinals lap

    Make no mistake; that wasn’t skill the Cardinals employed on Saturday in taking Beanie Wells. That was sheer luck. I don’t think any of us, even in our most mocked mock draft would have thought the Ohio State star would be there at #31. Yet there he was, the most intriguing player in the draft […]
  • Gambo's NFL Draft predictions

    John Gambadoro lists the way he thinks the top 10 draft picks are going to go. 1. Matthew Stafford – QB 2. Eugene Monroe – OT 3. Aaron Curry – LB 4. Mark Sanchez – QB 5. B.J. Raji – DT 6. Andre Smith – OT 7. Michael Crabtree – WR 8. Jeremy Maclin – […]
  • Gambo: Fans need to thank Randy Johnson

    Gambo: Fans need to thank Randy Johnson

    With all the discussion in this town focusing on the NFL draft this weekend let’s not forget Randy Johnson returns to Chase Field for the first time as the enemy. On Saturday, Johnson will face Max Scherzer and the emotions will be high. For Johnson it is a chance to gain win number 297 and […]
  • 2009 NFL Draft

    2009 NFL Draft

    Ron Wolfley knows a thing or two about the NFL and, with that knowledge, comes a keen sense of what teams will be looking for Saturday when they are on the clock. Top 10 selections: 1) Detroit: Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia 2) St. Louis: Jason Smith, T, Baylor 3) Kansas City: Aaron Curry, LB, Wake […]
  • Gambo: I expect Boldin to be dealt at the right price

    I fully expect to turn on the microphone next Monday and be discussing the Cardinals’ trading of star wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Somehow I think that one of the teams interested in acquiring Boldin will step up their offer to meet the Cardinals demand of a first and third rounder. Both Baltimore and the New […]
