  • Gibberman: Tough call for the Zen Master

    The Orlando Magic were a matchup nightmare for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cavs coach Mike Brown could not figure out how to contain Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic’s deadly three point shooting. Stan Van Gundy surrounds Superman with four players who can all hit from long range. Rashard Lewis, who plays the power forward position […]
  • 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 […]
  • Gambo: Time for CY to go to Reno

    There is a saying with injured animals that you need to put it out of its misery. That same philosophy needs to be taken by the Arizona Diamondbacks in their approach with centerfielder Chris Young. After Wednesday’s 0-for-4, 4 strikeout performance that included striking out while attempting to bunt, it is obvious Young needs someone […]
  • Sports Kabob – 5/20

    Ladies and gentlemen (and especially ladies), welcome to the Sports Kabob, a skewered look at the world of sports and pop culture. Here are the top stories: Before a crowd that cheered her lustily both before and after the race, Rachel Alexandra became the first filly to win the Preakness since 1924 and became the […]
  • Burns: Voicing your opinion is OK

    When people ask me what I do, sometimes I’ll say, “I’m a professional talker and opinion-maker.” Technically I’m an anchor and talk-show-host but they get the drift. So if part of my job is to have an opinion and passionately share that opinion with you, why on earth would I have a problem with somebody […]
  • 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 […]
  • Gambo: 5 untouchables, the rest are fair game

    The firing of Bob Melvin was just the first of what should be many changes coming in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. While the coaching staff had a complete makeover with a new manager, pitching coach and hitting coach, the reality is that the team on the field this year is just not good enough to […]
  • Sports Kabob – 5/13

    Ladies and gentlemen (and especially ladies), welcome to the Sports Kabob, a skewered look at the world of sports and pop culture. Here are the top stories: Manny Ramirez was suspended by Major League Baseball for 50 games after testing positive for a female fertility drug According to inside sources, this is the same reason […]
  • 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 […]
  • Green: Good for D-backs, bad for baseball

    The news about the Dodgers’ Manny Ramirez being suspended for using a banned substance sent a shockwave throughout baseball Thursday. The Dodgers, owners of the best record in baseball, have now lost the player that has led them to that point for just less than 1/3 of the season. This changes everything. As a Diamondbacks […]
