  • Pat’s Run is more than a race

    The assignment seemed simple enough. Do a story about the 8th annual Pat’s Run. It made sense. I’ll be running in the event for the first time Saturday, and it’s become enough of a staple here in the Valley that we should have something on it for ArizonaSports.com. Then I started putting the story together, […]
  • D-backs’ Young lands on disabled list

    Talk about your bad timing. After getting off to a red-hot start, Arizona Diamondbacks’ center fielder Chris Young has landed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder contusion. Veteran Cody Ransom had his contract selected from Triple-A Reno to fill Young’s roster spot. Young was batting .410 with 5 home runs and 13 […]
  • Without Hill, Suns have hands full with Durant

    Whenever you play the Oklahoma City Thunder, you know your hands will be full trying to deal with Kevin Durant, the league’s two-time defending scoring champion. When you’re forced to face Durant without your best defensive player, your hands get even fuller. That’s the boat the Phoenix Suns find themselves in Wednesday night as they […]
  • Canadian writer calls Torres ‘hockey’s biggest punk’

    Raffi Torres of the Phoenix Coyotes had a reputation as a physical, sometimes dirty player before Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Chicago Blackhawks Tuesday night. After his hellacious hit on Chicago star Marian Hossa in the first period Tuesday, that reputation has become more negative, at least according to Mark Spector […]
  • Coyotes’ Raffi Torres suspended indefinitely

    Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres, according various reports, has been suspended indefinitely by the National Hockey League pending an in-person visit with league officials Friday. Torres laid a brutal hit on Chicago’s Marian Hossa in the first period of the Coyotes’ 3-2 overtime win in Game 3 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals Tuesday night. No […]
  • D-backs’ outfield suddenly banged up

    Depth is a good thing on any baseball roster. When navigating through the rigors of a 162-game major league season, injuries happen, it’s good to have options on your bench that can come in and do the job when called upon. One of the reasons why the Arizona Diamondbacks were the pick of many pundits […]
  • Monday’s heroes Saunders and Hill among unsung D-backs

    Chris Young, who has had a ludicrously-impressive first 10 games of the season, stole the show on Monday night at Chase Field, as the Diamondbacks beat the Pirates 5-1. Young went 3-for-4 and hit his fifth home run of the season, raising his batting average to .405 and his on- base-plus-slugging percentage to 1.392. After […]
  • Whisenhunt on the Cardinals’ 2012 schedule

    The Arizona Cardinals, who got off to a notoriously slow 1-6 start last season, have home field advantage in the early portion of the 2012 campaign. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt marveled at the prospect of hitting the ground running and reversing his team’s fortunes this year. “The first thing that stood out to me was […]
  • Crawford could fit with Suns, but team is ‘rolling’

    Portland Trail Blazers guard Jamal Crawford stated on Monday his desire to come to Phoenix, and he could receive a warm welcome by players if he does move here. Suns forward Jared Dudley told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday that Crawford’s interest in the team spans back to last summer. “I talked to […]
  • Nash is still here, so fans should just enjoy the ride

    “Just sit back and enjoy the ride” One of the greatest point guards I’ve ever seen play the game is still a proud member of the Phoenix Suns. Will we be able to say the same thing a year from now? Not only do I not have that answer, but I strongly believe that even […]
  • Rhodes, Cardinals’ defense aims to ‘hit the ground running’

    At this time last year, most of the NFL players were still on vacation instead of attending voluntary workouts like they are now. The 2011 lockout hindered the training and preparation for the upcoming season, but the players are now more eager to get in a complete offseason workout with their teams. “I think it’s […]
  • Ailing Justin Upton gets Tuesday off, to see hand specialist

    Justin Upton missed Tuesday night’s game against the Pirates, as the Diamondbacks have elected to sit him due to a thumb injury he suffered in the team’s Opening Weekend series against the Giants. Upton, who is hitting just .212 with 0 home runs and 0 RBI, has struggled mightily. “He’s not swinging the bat well,” […]
  • Off the Ice: Shaw suspension shows deep flaws in NHL discipline

    I’m not here to argue the Andrew Shaw suspension. He made contact with Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith’s head. He took a dangerous line on a protected player. He had both time and space to alter his course or slow down to make a play on the puck; he did neither. Shaw deserved his three-game […]
  • Adjustments help Young get off to hot start

    If you look at the leaders among the triple crown categories in the National League, you’ll find only two players who are in the top five in all three: Dodgers’ outfielder Matt Kemp and Diamondbacks’ center fielder Chris Young. Young, a career .242 hitter, joined Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 620 Tuesday to explain […]
  • Arizona Cardinals 2012 schedule released

The Cardinals will open their campaign Sunday, September 9 against the Seattle Seahawks. This game marks only the fifth time since the team relocated to the Valley in […]
