  • D-backs’ Putz to auction off Justin Bieber autographed card

    From the moment Diamondbacks closer J.J. Putz pulled a Justin Bieber autographed card on June 13, its fate has been a consistent topic of debate. Would Putz save (haha, get it?) the card? How about give it to his daughters? Or, perhaps, in what would be a less likely, more dangerous incident, would a group […]
  • Gibson on Upton’s continuing struggles

    The most prevalent storyline for the 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks has been the lack of production from two-time All-Star right fielder Justin Upton. During the last home stand, Upton was baseball’s equivalent of a healthy scratch; he watched back-to-back victories over the Colorado Rockies from the Arizona dugout. After a scheduled day off for the team, […]
  • Cardinals should celebrate passionate fans

    If there’s one thing the Kevin Kolb/John Skelton QB controversy has taught us, it’s that Arizona Cardinals fans are a fickle bunch. And, as someone who grew up a Cardinals fan and suffered the annual abuse that came with the jerseys and hats, it’s much better to be “fickle” than “non-existent”. When news came out […]
  • D-backs’ Hill hits for cycle against Mariners

    Arizona Diamondbacks’ second baseman Aaron Hill is on a tear — adding a storied baseball milestone to his résumé. The D-backs’ infielder hit for his first career cycle in a 7-1 win over the Seattle Mariners Monday. Needing a home run to complete the cycle, Hill took Mariners reliever Shawn Kelley deep in the seventh […]
  • Rumor: Red Sox willing to pay to move Youkilis

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have shown interest in Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis, but the former All-Star’s numbers (.215 batting average, four home runs, 13 RBI), injury history (played in just 39 games so far this year) and contract (more than $7 million left this year, $13 million team option for next season) have likely […]
  • A closer look: Miley, Hill help D-backs to win over Mariners

    Sure, you could read the box score and know who won, but we all know that won’t tell you everything that happened in a baseball game. So, we will give you a closer look, providing you with the analysis, quotes and notes from the D-backs’ June 18 victory over the Mariners. Final score: Diamondbacks 7, […]
  • Cards’ Fitzgerald among Forbes highest-paid athletes

    Heralded wideout Larry Fitzgerald has not only accrued on the field accolades being the franchise face of the Arizona Cardinals, but thanks to his salary and endorsements, also an enviable fortune. According to Forbes magazine, Fitzgerald placed No. 13 on the world’s 100 highest-paid athletes list. He nets $36.8 million in total earnings; $35.3 million […]
  • Rattlers still top AFL Power Rankings

    Not even a bye week could knock the Arizona Rattlers off their perch atop the Arena Football League Power Rankings released Monday morning. The Rattlers (10-3) are ranked first for the fifth straight week, followed by San Antonio (10-3), Philadelphia (11-3), Utah (9-5) and San Jose (9-5). Kevin Guy’s Rattlers have won five straight games […]
  • D-backs’ back-to-back shutouts a rarity indeed

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have played 2,334 games since their inaugural season in 1998. On only seven occasions have they been shut out in back- to-back games by opponents. The seventh time occurred Sunday afternoon when Los Angeles Angels’ hurlers Garrett Richards and Ernesto Frieri combined on a 4-hit shutout in a 2-0 win. Saturday, it […]
  • Phoenix became a real sports town 20 years ago today

    June 18, 1992. I was just 27 days away from my 21st birthday. But instead of looking forward to going out and getting schnockered like most soon-to-be 21-year-olds, I had a sadness in my heart. The Phoenix Suns, tired of being a perennial 50-win team who bows out of the NBA Playoffs in the first […]
  • Unheralded Carter Cardinals’ next star?

    If you asked people which young player was going to breakout and become a star for the Arizona Cardinals, the names that would come up would be Patrick Peterson, Michael Floyd and Daryl Washington, among others. One name you likely wouldn’t hear — at least early in the conversation — is David Carter. The defensive […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs drop series to Angels

    The Diamondbacks knew their American League West interleague road swing against two of baseball’s elite teams, the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels, was going to be their toughest test of the season thus far. Unfortunately, they failed to answer the call. The D-backs were the victims of two consecutive shutout victories by the Angels […]
  • Interleague play is futile and skewed

    On Monday, the Diamondbacks will play host to the Seattle Mariners. You, of course, knew that. In fact, you’ve had June 18 marked on your calendar since late last September, when Major League Baseball released its 2012 schedule. Diamondbacks-Mariners, baby! If this doesn’t get the boys going, I don’t know what will. Actually, please forgive […]
  • Former GM Dipoto set D-backs up for success

    Jerry Dipoto is no longer with the Arizona Diamondbacks, though his imprint will last for a while. Daniel Hudson, Patrick Corbin and Tyler Skaggs were all acquired by the now-Angels GM, who had the unenviable task of trying to rebuild the Diamondbacks over a couple months back in 2010. The process involved trading pitchers Dan […]
  • UA hoops coach Miller’s contract extended

    The Arizona Board of Regents approved a contract extension for Arizona men’s basketball coach Sean Miller Friday. Miller, who has been in Tucson for three seasons and has a conference championship and Elite 8 birth on his resume, has led the Wildcats to a 69-35 mark (36-18 in conference). “We’re pleased to have Sean Miller’s […]
