Burns & Gambo

  • 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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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 […]
  • Burns: Defending Eric Byrnes (well…kinda)

    The D-backs had just lost to the San Francisco Giants 2-0, completing a weekend series in which Arizona scored 2 runs, compiled 11 hits and amassed 31 strikeouts against the Giants. And after this nightmare series is over, what does the announcer implore me to do? Stay tuned. ‘The Eric Byrnes Show’ is next. Really? […]
  • Gambo: Byrnes needs to step up

    I just got done watching another Diamondbacks loss Friday night — they seem to be mounting and the season is only two weeks old — and I have to wonder how long the organization can continue to roll Eric Byrnes out there. In the top of the 9th down 2-0 with nobody out and Chris […]
  • Gambo: It is time to start over

    Over the past few months I have received tons of emails regarding the Phoenix Suns. Some people want the team to stay together, others want the team to be blown up. For me the answer is obvious. It’s time to start over, rebuild. In fact it was time to start over last year. There is […]
  • Burns: The Cards are doing the right thing

    Like the guy who smokes two packs of cigs a day who finally admits he needs to quit, the Arizona Cardinals have finally admitted that, yes, they’ll listen to teams who are interested in Anquan Boldin. The Cardinals have steadfastly and stubbornly refused to say they’ll move their receiver, instead of insisting that they want […]
