  • Fatherhood new motivation for Cardinals LB O’Brien Schofield

    O’Brien Schofield is smiling. Then again, he’s always smiling: on the field, off the field. But this smile is different. The Cardinals third-year linebacker was just congratulated on the birth of his son, eliciting a wide smile and the proverbial sparkle in the eyes. Judea Anthony Schofield was born a week ago Wednesday in the […]
  • Cardinals coach: ‘I want Kevin to be our quarterback’

    In what has become a daily occurrence, Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt was asked Thursday about how he’s splitting the reps between quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton. As you are well aware, the two are in what Whisenhunt is calling a “competition” for the starting job, and as far as we know it will be […]
  • History says it’s hard to get excited about pick #13

    The ping pong balls have settled, the logo cards have been pulled out of the envelopes, and the order for the 2012 NBA Draft has been determined. The New Orleans Hornets own the first selection in the draft, which will be held June 28. And unless they get hit in the head by a blunt […]
  • NBA has a conspiracy problem

    It’s tough to find a Suns fan who doesn’t think the NBA is fixed in some way. Whether it’s officiating some feel continually allowed the Spurs to knock their team out of the playoffs, suspensions that many think cost them a shot at a title, or a draft lottery system that has never — and […]
  • Goldschmidt continues to own Lincecum

    It’s uncanny. Tim Lincecum (outside of this season) has made a career of making National League batters look silly. Yet, there’s one batter who has Lincecum’s number, and that dominance continued Wednesday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco. That batter’s name is Paul Goldschmidt, and the Diamondbacks’ first baseman once again feasted on the […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: More inconsistency in SF

    And the inconsistency continues… As I have said many times, the 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks have only done one thing consistently all season… and that is play inconsistently. The consistently inconsistent squad was at it again this week in San Francisco, as the D-backs dropped two of three to the Giants. However, due to a Dodgers […]
  • Kevin Towers hopeful on Stephen Drew’s return

    Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Stephen Drew had another successful nine inning extended spring training game on Wednesday, a sign that shows the Diamondbacks are one step closer to getting him back in the line-up. Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers joined Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday and knows what Drew’s return would mean to the team. […]
  • Cardinals assistant Russ Grimm ‘proud’ of his son

    Russ Grimm is a lot of things. Super Bowl champion. Hall of Famer. Cardinals assistant head coach. But most importantly, he’s a father, a proud father. Grimm took a brief timeout from OTAs to travel back east to watch his son, Dylan, help Loyola University win it’s first-ever NCAA men’s lacrosse national championship. “It’s always […]
  • No luck for Suns; Phoenix to pick 13th

    The ping pong balls have spoken, and they say the Phoenix Suns will be selecting 13th in this summer’s NBA Draft. The NBA’s draft lottery was held in New York Wednesday and the Suns, who had the second-worst odds to land the top overall selection, did not see their position move. This will be the […]
  • Coyotes avoid punishment for Game 5 conduct

    Needless to say, the Phoenix Coyotes were a frustrated hockey team just over a week ago. They had been outplayed, eliminated from the Western Conference Finals by the Los Angeles Kings in five games. And they felt that they were the victims of some shoddy officiating for much of the Los Angeles series. After several […]
  • Quentin Groves: Arizona is the right fit for me

    Quentin Groves is fitting right in with his new teammates. “The guys have welcomed me with open arms,” he said following OTAs Wednesday, just his second day on the field with the Cardinals. “[I] had a little jawing session today with (Larry) Fitzgerald; and me and (Darnell) Dockett kind of got into it over what […]
  • Odds of Suns winning lottery and of other, umm, things

    The Phoenix Suns have found themselves in frustratingly familiar territory, awaiting the bounce of some ping pong balls to determine where they’ll be selecting in the NBA Draft. The Suns, who finished with the second-best record of any team that missed the postseason, are slated to pick 13th. Of course, they could still move up […]
  • D-backs’ Hall believes in second chances

    Brian Banks, the former California high school football player recently exonerated of rape charges, is now getting a second chance at life. The Arizona Diamondbacks hope they might be a part of his fresh start. Team President and CEO Derrick Hall wants to talk with Banks, who was released from prison last week after his […]
  • Ex-Sun Devil Pflugrad cut by Eagles

    The NFL dreams of former Arizona State wide receiver Aaron Pflugrad have hit a snag. The undrafted rookie was cut Wednesday by the Philadelphia Eagles after they signed him to a free agent deal back on April 29. Pflugrad, along with former University of Miami running back Graig Cooper, were both let go by the […]
  • ESPN insider: Don’t give up on D-backs yet

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are not playing well and face what appears to be an insurmountable deficit in the NL West. Still, it would be too early to give up on them. “There’s still plenty of time,” ESPN MLB insider Tim Kurkjian told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Wednesday. There are still more than 100 […]
  • Suns face less competition if interested in Eric Gordon

    Of all the free agents the Suns may have interest in this summer, only one would seem to be the perfect combination of youth, talent and availability. His name? Eric Gordon. The 23-year-old shooting guard is coming off an injury- plagued season in New Orleans, where he averaged 20.6 points, 3.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds […]
  • Cardinals sign former Wildcat WR Gino Crump

    As OTAs continue in Tempe, the Arizona Cardinals today made a couple of changes to their roster, releasing cornerback Korey Lindsey and signing rookie free agent wide receiver Gino Crump out of the University of Arizona. Crump played two seasons for the Wildcats, catching 69 passes for 610 yards and two touchdowns. All but four […]
  • ASU football nearing return to Camp Tontozona

    Arizona State football is close to returning to its old stomping grounds. The Sun Devils are expected to announce the return of its football squad to Camp Tontozona, where the team previously held training for 48 years. “Camp T is coming well,” ASU athletic director Steve Patterson told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday. […]
  • Odds against Suns improving 2012 Draft position

    The Phoenix Suns have never won the NBA Draft Lottery. “If we get that (number-one overall pick) I might have to act a little bit silly then,” said Mark West, the former Suns center. West, now the team’s Vice President of Player Programs, will represent the Suns when the NBA holds its draft lottery Wednesday. […]
  • D-backs must ‘be smarter’ on the basepaths

    If you’re tired of seeing Diamondbacks runners getting caught stealing, get in line. Nineteen times has a D-back been caught stealing, tops in the National League. However, the team has stolen 37 bases — third most in the NL — so there is something to be said for the aggressive approach. “It’s our responsibility not […]
