  • Not crazy to think more fans should go to D-backs games

    The Arizona Diamondbacks’ attendance woes are no secret. The Houston Astros have not helped things, but overall the D-backs just don’t draw as well as they’d like or, really, like a first place team should. Arizona ranks 21st in the Major Leagues, seeing an average of 23,962 fans each night at Chase Field. Sports 620 […]
  • Cardinal sin? Another receiver is off the market

    The Arizona Cardinals have maintained that they are fine with the receivers currently on the roster, but it’s anyone’s guess as to how truthful their claims are. If, in fact, the team is in the market for a wideout, their number of options took another hit Thursday. Former Jets WR Jericho Cotchery will agree to […]
  • Countdown is on for D-backs to sign Archie Bradley

    When the Diamondbacks selected pitcher Archie Bradley out of Broken Arrow High School they were getting a guy with great stuff — and an offer to play quarterback at Oklahoma. There was some thought that the D-backs may have a somewhat difficult time signing the 6-foot-4 right-hander, a task the team has until Monday to […]
  • Arizona Diamondbacks still willing to add a piece

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are in sole position of first place in the NL West for the first time since June. If you told most people back in March they would be in contention this late in the season, let alone in first place, they probably would have laughed at you. While expectations weren’t exactly high […]
  • Collmenter steps up in big way for Diamondbacks

    It was an important start for Josh Collmenter. The D-backs rookie, pitching for his job (at least, in the eyes of some), had given up 11 runs over his previous two starts, throwing a total of six innings. Wednesday night he went seven, and wow did the Diamondbacks need every one of them in their […]
  • Gonzalez remains optimistic about Marquis, Goldschmidt

    Nearly two weeks ago the Diamondbacks made a few moves, including trading for pitcher Jason Marquis and calling up first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from Double-A Mobile. Neither has had much success since donning the Sedona Red, with Marquis posting a 12.38 ERA in two starts and Goldschmidt struggling his way to a .192 batting average […]
  • Putz showcases athleticism in win over Astros

    The tying run is at second base with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. J.J. Putz is in to close the game, one in which the D-backs rallied from six down to take the lead. A win against one of the NL’s worst teams would be huge, while a loss, especially now, […]
  • Gibson gave Upton permission to ‘have a blow out’

    Justin Upton was not pleased with the way home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor was calling the game Tuesday night. Having recorded just two hits in 16 at bats prior to the game, the right fielder was frustrated. And the umpire wasn’t helping. “C.B. kind of eye-walked him all the way out to the outfield, and […]
  • The time was right for the Diamondbacks, Goldschmidt

    It was time for Paul Goldschmidt to become a Diamondback. After tearing up the Double-A level there was really nothing left for the man to prove in the minor leagues. “Goldschmidt has crazy raw power and a pretty good idea of the strike zone,” ESPN MLB insider Keith Law said. “What he lacks is…he doesn’t […]
  • ESPN MLB insider: Give Upton time

    Sometimes we forget the fact that Justin Upton is just 23. Already a veteran of four Major League seasons, Upton’s tenure with the Diamondbacks is surpassed only by Miguel Montero and Chris Young. “We get thrown off by the rare position player who gets to the big leagues before his 20th birthday because then they’re […]
  • Don’t overreact about Jason Marquis’ first two starts

    If Jason Marquis keeps it up he may earn himself the nickname ‘two face’. That’s because he’s been a drastically different pitcher than he was in Washington before the Arizona Diamondbacks acquired him. Prior to being dealt to the desert at the trade deadline Marquis had put up stellar numbers. He had an 8-5 record […]

  • Gibson: “My guess is we will bounce back”

    PHOENIX – Manager Kirk Gibson isn’t getting too worried over the Diamondbacks recent struggles. “In the past, we’ve had some tougher times and some streaks where we haven’t played well but we’ve always bounced back. My guess is we will bounce back,” said Gibson on Tuesday. Arizona has lost four of their last five games, […]
  • Upton’s struggles reek of immaturity

    Baseball players go through ups and downs throughout the course of a season, and the D-backs’ Justin Upton is no exception. Coming off a road trip where he was simply dominant, Upton has gone 2-16 over the last four games, three of which the Diamondbacks have lost. While bad, his struggles at the plate aren’t […]
  • Fan support should not affect D-backs on the field

    The Diamondbacks have been struggling lately both on the field and at the ticket office, but one should not be used as an excuse for the other. “Just don’t ask me to accept the lack of fan support as a reason why the Diamondbacks went out and played poorly,” Ron Wolfley said on Sports 620 […]
  • Kennedy-Hudson the next great Arizona Diamondbacks pitching duo?

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have had some highly-esteemed pitching combinations in their short past and whispers are going around that they have found another in Ian Kennedy and Daniel Hudson. With names like Curt Schilling, Randy Johnson, Dan Haren and Brandon Webb flying around, both Kennedy and Hudson could see themselves joining some D-backs of purple […]

  • Chase Field is going to the dogs

    The Dog Days of Summer? All booing of bad jokes aside, Chase Field will host its first-ever Bark at the Park Saturday, August 13 when the D-backs host the New York Mets. Presented by Starkweather Roofing, the cost is $20 per owner and $20 per dog. Five-dollars from each ticket will be donated to the […]
  • Lack of fans leads to lackluster play for D-backs

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are in the thick of the race for the NL West crown, yet their attendance at Chase Field has been far from impressive. The Diamondbacks drew 27,215 Friday, 33,239 Saturday and a paltry 25,575 Sunday. “You can’t tell me, in 162 games, that baseball players can bring it all the time,” Sports […]
  • Astros and Mets series huge for the Diamondbacks

    The Arizona Diamondbacks had an opportunity to gain ground on the division leading Giants over the weekend as San Francisco lost 3-of-4 to the Philadelphia Phillies. Instead the D-backs fell short losing their weekend series to the Dodgers and remaining a half game back of the NL West lead. With the Giants still in the […]
