  • MLB insider: D-backs not wrong to trade Parker

    Back in December the Arizona Diamondbacks traded pitchers Jarrod Parker and Ryan Cook, as well as outfielder Collin Cowgill for pitchers Trevor Cahill and Craig Breslow from the Oakland A’s.

  • Glendale leader says Coyotes deal will break city

    PHOENIX — The Glendale City Council is on the verge of approving a taxpayer-funded plan to keep the NHL Phoenix Coyotes in the Valley.

  • Diamondbacks don’t expect to be ‘sellers’ at deadline

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are playing better baseball of late, and a turnaround would render the question moot. However, if the team’s early-season struggles linger, the question would surely arise: Will the D-backs be the proverbial “seller” at the trade deadline? Doesn’t look like it. “The way our team is built, we’re not much of a […]

  • Cardinals wrap up OTAs in Tempe

    The Arizona Cardinals put the finishing touches on their 2012 organized team activities (OTAs) Thursday in Tempe.

  • D-backs’ Miley staying humble, focused

    Quick, going into the season, who did you think would be the Arizona Diamondbacks’ best starting pitcher in 2012?

  • D-backs GM on Trevor Bauer: ‘His time will come’

  • Signs of relief for Diamondbacks fans

    In February, I found myself slowly jogging on the side of the road in Wickenburg, intermittently stopping to bend over and throw up while other runners passed me left and right. I was less than a mile into a nine-mile leg in a relay race and I was already stumbling and staggering and ready to […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: Bats come alive against Colorado

    Now those are the D-backs I’ve been waiting for since the start of the season. Of course I’m talking about the Diamondbacks I saw on Tuesday and Wednesday, and not Monday. But those two wins were so impressive, albeit against the Rockies, that I feel as though I want to forget about the negatives from […]
  • ESPN Insider: Drew hesitant to return

    Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick has a lot on his plate these days: the benching of superstar Justin Upton and the under-performance of his team being chief among them entering the third month of the season.

  • Diamondbacks GM wants team’s attitude to remain positive

    Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers wants his team to really come together as one.

  • Cardinals rookie Justin Bethel making the ‘big jump’

    It is hard enough to make the transition from college to the NFL, even harder when a position change is thrown into the mix. Welcome to Justin Bethel’s world. The Cardinals drafted the 21-year-old in the sixth round (177th overall) out of Presbyterian College. Bethel played cornerback for much of his time at the private […]
  • Patrick Peterson wants to create his own island

    As Patrick Peterson enters his second NFL season, he does so with great expectations.

He knows that must change, and thinks it will. “I’ve been working extremely […]

  • Gambo: Don’t expect Stephen Drew back next year

    Stephen Drew’s days as an Arizona Diamondback are numbered. According to Arizona Sports 620’s John Gambadoro, the tension between the injured shortstop and the team he plays for is a part of will have nothing to do with whether or not Drew returns next season. Because, it would seem, no one expects him back anyway. […]
