Doug & Wolf

  • Doug: Suns should listen to Grandma

    $#)% or get off the pot. I realize that starting a blog with an impolite word is not appropriate for a co-host of a show that prides itself on the fact your kids can listen to Doug & Wolf. My Grandmother always says, “Poop, or get off the pot.” When you’re old school German-Catholic, the […]
  • Doug: The joy of being a fan

    When you’re a fan of the worst team in Major League Baseball (I don’t consider the Nats “Major League”), it’s easy to forget the guys under the hats. This is not a blog about the problems of the D-backs or the mistakes of the past. I’m on vacation and I don’t want to take the […]
  • Wolf: Plan-It Orange

    And so it begins. The Phoenix Suns are in the process of rebuilding their basketball team. Although I continue to proffer the belief they have been rebuilding since the Terry Porter hire, the trading of Shaq to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a player that may retire, a player that will be bought out and a […]
  • Doug: It’s just a beginning

    The news room is a scramble. The bald boss man wants all hands on deck. E-mails are exploding. It’s a huge story. Shaq’s been traded. It’s all over the place. I have a completely different stance: Quit looking at Cleveland or you’ll miss what’s about to happen. Despite having a minor in History, I don’t […]
  • Doug: Enjoying guest hosts

    I love the first few days of guest co-hosts. There’s no doubt the show takes a hit without Wolf. He brings an unmatched energy that I think we all need in the morning. His point-of-view is so different than anyone else you’ll meet. He gives the show an edge because there’s no way to anticipate […]
  • Wolf: Mark Reynolds and the game of life

    Watching Mark Reynolds play the game of baseball is a fascinating way to pass the summer months. He is the most entertaining player the Diamondbacks have on their roster and summers in the Basin can be brutal. The Sonoran Sun will idle the hands of even the most ardent worker and turn busy Basinonians into […]
  • Doug: Mailbag on four hot topics

    A lot of topics Wednesday got the ire of a lot of people and serious introspection. There was a wide ranging array. Some topics were frighteningly funny and some were just plain frightening. DONTE STALLWORTH I quite frequently agree with you. Today, however, I am shocked at your opinion. Stallworth only complied because he got […]
  • Wolf: I would stand and applaud

    There are questions lurking in the corners of the dark shadows this evening. Let us open our minds and peer into the soul, looking for that deeper shade of pitch. And so it begins…this personal question to which there is no “right” or “wrong” answer; there are only opinions and personal choices. Randy Johnson was […]
  • Doug: To stand or not to stand

    There’s a big question that every D-back fan has to answer tonight at Chase Field. Do you stand and applaud, applaud only, do nothing, or boo Randy Johnson? Wednesday night during the third inning, the D-backs will show a video tribute to Randy Johnson honoring his 300th win. It’s a classy move by the D-backs. […]
  • Doug: Too right to be so wrong

    The man is right too often to be this wrong. I think Josh Byrnes is a good GM. Look at how many things he has done right. I could go on forever but just this year there’s Parra, the decision to leave a struggling Upton in the line-up, keeping Roberts on the roster, not giving […]
  • Wolf: Time to mend relations

    Boldin fired his agent. Henry VIII beheaded two of his wives.
  • Doug: The Eric Byrnes throw

    The mailbag completely filled up Thursday on one subject: Eric Byrnes. Every e-mail can be divided into three categories: 1) I’m being too hard on Byrnes. It’s the D-backs fault they gave him the contract. Just send him to the minors. Eric Byrnes turned down the first few exstension offers during the 2007 season. He […]
  • Doug: Yes! I believe

    This time of year, so many people come to me and ask me one simple question: “Do you really believe the NBA Draft Lottery is rigged?” Of course there are times when I say something I don’t mean because I’m a sarcastic person. Yes, sometimes I say something I don’t mean just to get Wolf’s […]
  • Doug: Now do you understand?

    It was July of 2006. I could tell my boss was dishonest. It’s one of the difficulties of this business. I get paid to sit on my butt and talk sports. You do the same thing everyday and don’t get paid for it. The catch is how quickly it can end and suddenly you’re looking […]
  • Wolf: Copious Notes from the Dark Corners

    I am undone. Never in my adult life have I contracted a type of virus like this. This isn’t the common cold, my friends. This isn’t the type of bug you used to fight off with Mucinex, cough drops and Vicks vapor rub. This is the kind of parasite that infected Genoese traders in 1347, […]
  • Doug: I couldn’t believe what I saw

    It’s over. I couldn’t believe what I saw last night. It is impossible to play the game in such an ignorant way. Byrnes not hustling to get the ball back to the infield. Trying to take second on a one-hop single to the right fielder (he also got a gift-wrapped single on an error by […]
  • Doug: The NL West is open again

    Fire Bob Melvin after today’s (Thu 5-7) game. Obviously that opinion doesn’t seem to coincide with the news of the day. Manny Ramirez was suspended for 50 games today (Thu 5-7). The news according to Manny is it wasn’t a steroid but a substance that has been deemed a PED. He says he received it […]
  • Doug: I hate it, they deserve it, I wish them well

    As the news broke on Gambo & Ash Tuesday that the Coyotes were declaring bankruptcy I had quite a few thoughts, all at the same time… 1) I hate what’s happened. I love hockey and I love going to games. I don’t want to lose the Coyotes. However, I thought the game operations were awful. […]
  • Doug: Draft excitement

    I loved being at Goldies on Saturday. It was great to be in the element I love: running a draft show on location. In 2005, I was running a draft show in Kansas City. The Chiefs desperately needed a LB. The Carolina Panthers were on the clock at pick 14. Derrick Johnson out of Texas […]
  • Wolf: Freaks always win

    Going into this year’s draft, the Cardinals needed a pass-rusher. Of this I was certain. Last year, the Cardinals were in the bottom half of the league (20) in sacks/pass attempt and #22 in pass defense. They have good, veteran leadership on the edge with Bertrand Berry, Chike Okeafor, Clark Haggans and Travis LaBoy, but […]
