  • Cardinals QB questions? Ask the QB coach

    Is John McNulty aiming to reinvent the position of quarterback coach in the NFL? Uh, no. “I saw Donovan McNabb taking drops in the ocean waist-deep in Miami with a quarterback guru, you’d have to explain to me what that was,” McNulty smiled. You mean the Cardinals new QB coach hasn’t concocted a bunch of […]
  • Rattlers scrape past Pittsburgh

    It wasn’t pretty, but the Arizona Rattlers continued their victorious ways, notching a 55-45 win over the Pittsburgh Power at US Airways Center Saturday night. The win was Arizona’s fourth straight and sixth in their last seven contests. Nick Davila threw for 282 yards and five touchdowns, and Trandon Harvey scored three times, including a […]
  • Suitors lining up to pursue Steve Nash

    The clock is ticking, and with every second that passes, the beginning of the NBA free agency period gets closer. And for Steve Nash and the Phoenix Suns, that could very well mean the end of a magical eight-year run during which the point guard won two Most Valuable Player Awards, the Suns won over […]
  • Red helmets ‘not on radar’ for U of A football

    Two weeks ago, the University of Arizona athletic department made it known that they were adding a third helmet to the Wildcats’ football wardrobe. The new copper-colored alternate joins Arizona’s more traditional blue and white helmets, and will be worn some time during the 2012 season. Sunday, another photo of another alternate helmet — this […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs take two of three from Padres

    Talk about making me eat my words… Just last series I called Trevor Cahill a mediocre pitcher. I said the Diamondbacks trade with the Athletics might have been a mistake. So how did Cahill respond? He threw his best game of the season on Sunday. Cahill pitched a complete game shutout, and allowed only six […]
  • If Nash departs, Suns could pursue Deron Williams

    While the Phoenix Suns haven’t given up hope of re-signing Steve Nash this off-season, the team has begun making contingency plans in the event the two-time MVP opts to walk. Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News thinks the Suns could have interest in one of the league’s premier point guards. Brooklyn fans — […]
  • Cardinals exploring joint workouts with Chiefs

    The Arizona Cardinals will be in Kansas City on August 10 for a preseason match-up with the Chiefs and a week before that, they’ll be in nearby Canton, Ohio for the Hall of Fame game. So, presumably, it would be convenient for the team to stay in the Midwest for that week long period. According […]
  • Wade Miley sets franchise record hitting streak for pitcher

    Arizona Diamondbacks rookie hurler Wade Miley extended his career-best hitting streak to eight games, tying a franchise record for a pitcher. The D-backs’ southpaw stroked an infield single in the seventh inning of a 7-1 loss to the Padres, surpassing the previous record set by Dan Haren in 2010. Miley’s success at the plate has […]
  • ESPN MLB insider: Kevin Youkilis may not be worth risk

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are certainly struggling and if the team hopes to get back into the playoff race they’ll likely need to add another bat to bolster their lineup. One name that’s been rumored to be available is Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis. The veteran slugger could offer value to the D-backs at […]
  • ESPN MLB insider: D-backs did well to re-sign Montero

    The Arizona Diamondbacks recently signed catcher Miguel Montero to a five-year, $60 million contract extension. The deal not only ensures the team keeps the 28-year-old in the Valley for the duration of his prime, but gives them reliability at a position where it’s tough to find some. Which is why, according to ESPN MLB insider […]
  • D-backs’ Ian Kennedy hopes he’s past early-season struggles

    Ian Kennedy doesn’t think he’s “back.” The Diamondbacks right-hander, who won 21 games and emerged as an ace last season, was 3-5 with a 4.65 ERA entering Wednesday’s game against the Giants. Then he pitched 7.1 innings, giving up just five hits and one run, and the hope is he’s turned his season around. “The […]
  • Mercury ‘not concerned’ about rough start

    It’s only four games into the 2012 WNBA campaign, but the Phoenix Mercury have found themselves in unfamiliar territory. After Thursday night’s 81-65 loss in Atlanta, the Mercury are just 1-3 with another road game at San Antonio looming. To make matters worse, forward Penny Taylor is out for the season with a knee injury […]
  • It may be now or never for the Diamondbacks

    As the calendar turns to June the Arizona Diamondbacks face one, somewhat simple reality: If they’re going to make a run at the NL West title, it’s going to have to begin this month. The D-backs find themselves nine games back of Los Angeles and four games behind San Francisco, a position few though they’d […]

  • Only three NFC West draft picks remain unsigned; two belong to Cardinals

    A total of 34 players were selected by the four NFC West teams in April’s draft, with the Rams and Seahawks choosing 10 players and the Cardinals and 49ers selecting 7 apiece. Of those 34, 31 have signed contracts. Of the three who haven’t, as’s Mike Sando notes, two belong to the Arizona Cardinals. […]
  • Spark up the Youkilis to D-backs rumors again

    One of the concerns for the Arizona Diamondbacks heading into the 2012 season was whether Ryan Roberts could duplicate his 2011 production. In his first year as an everyday player, Roberts popped 19 homers, many of them of the clutch variety, drove in 65 runs and stole 18 bases while batting .249. Arizona’s front office […]
  • Rob Housler hopes to make bigger impact in 2012

    Rookies all across the NFL have gotten their first taste of offseason action through OTAs in the month of May. For second-year players like Arizona Cardinals tight end Rob Housler, it’s a first time learning experience as well. Because teams were kept from almost all of their preseason workouts and camps going into 2011 due […]
  • D-backs’ Hall on job offer to Brian Banks: ‘It’s the right thing to do’

    You’ve probably heard the story of Brian Banks, a former prep football star who spent time in prison due to a rape charge that was proven to be a lie. The last 10 years of his life have been spent either in prison or on parole wearing an ankle bracelet, so needless to say his […]
  • Cardinals rookie Lindley learning through OTAs

    Taken with the 185th pick of the 2012 draft by the Arizona Cardinals, quarterback Ryan Lindley is doing everything he can to soak in information during OTAs. Highly praised by the media, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King predicted that Lindley will play by mid-season. While not going that far, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski said he thinks Lindley […]
  • Sun Devils announce return to Tontozona

    Thanks to donations from nearly 500 fans, former players and Arizona State Sun Devil Alumni, the Sun Devil football team will be returning to camp Tontozona from August 14 to August 18. The campaign, which was coined “Return To Camp T,” called on those close to the team to raise $150,000 dollars for the Sun […]
