  • Ransom, Roberts competing for time at 3B

    Ryan Roberts is one of the most popular members of the Arizona Diamondbacks and played a key role in the team’s 2011 National League West championship.

  • Larry Scott: Pac-12 supports four-team playoff

    There has been a lot of scuttlebutt from a lot of different people about the adoption of a playoff system to determine a national champion in college football.

  • Upton bounces around lineup in search of spark

    Kirk Gibson could not have expected the reaction he got after deciding to bat Justin Upton second in Monday night’s game. Upton, you know, has been the team’s number three hitter for the better part of the last year, so the idea of moving him up in the order was one much of the Valley […]

  • Confessions of a bandwagon Coyotes fan

    I went to three Phoenix Coyotes games during the 2011-12 regular season. I’ve been to six so far in the postseason. I plan on going to more. My name is Adam Green, and I’m a bandwagon fan. It’s not that I used to dislike the Coyotes, far from it. I would usually attend a few […]
  • Coyotes cap big day with ‘business-like’ win

    Business-like. It’s not an adjective that has been used historically when describing the Phoenix Coyotes. After all, before this postseason, the Coyotes had never won a playoff series, squandering opportunities in 1997 (up 3-2 on Anaheim, lost 4-3), 1999 (up 3-1 on St. Louis, lost 4-3) and 2010 (tied 3-3, lost 4-3). In the first […]

  • D-backs getting closer to health

    The east coast was not kind to the Arizona Diamondbacks. After taking three of four from the Miami Marlins, Arizona finished up 2-4 against the Washington National and New York Mets to settle for a 5-5 road trip. And while the club is glad to be home, there is even better news on the horizon […]
  • Coyotes will have to make do without Klesla

    NHL Senior Vice President of Player Safety Brendan Shanahan is no friend of the Phoenix Coyotes. Shanahan, who is in charge of doling out discipline for the NHL, suspended defenseman Rostislav Klesla for a boarding call on Matt Halischuck in Game 4 against Nashville. While the Coyotes are undoubtedly not pleased with the ruling, they […]
