  • Cardinals Greg Toler ‘taking it one day at a time’

    Greg Toler puts himself at about 85-percent. Not bad considering he’s nine months removed from tearing the ACL in his left knee and there are still two months before the start of training camp. Toler, who suffered the season-ending injury in the Cardinals third preseason game against the San Diego Chargers, was on the field […]
  • Kevin Kolb sporting new helmet at OTAs

    By now, we all know that Kevin Kolb’s first year with the Arizona Cardinals was a frustrating one — not only for the quarterback himself, but also for fans and the entire organization.

  • Cardinals DT Williams confident returning from injury

    Just when it seemed as if Cardinals defensive tackle Dan Williams was starting to emerge, he was lost for the season. A first round pick out of Tennessee in 2010, Williams broke his left arm in a November loss to the 49ers. Williams is back on the field for OTAs now, and says he’s feeling […]

  • Take note, Suns: Spurs know how it’s done

    Two years ago the Phoenix Suns swept the San Antonio Spurs right out of the playoffs, giving the impression that not only had Planet Orange finally beaten their nemesis, but likely officially ended their reign atop the Western Conference, too.

  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs take two of three from Brewers

    I would like to take a moment, before I start talking about baseball, to thank all the men and women who have served our country past or present. The moment of silence we took before each game this weekend to honor the fallen troops is one that should happen every day. I can’t thank you […]
  • One-on-one with Wade Miley

    I caught up with Wade Miley earlier this week, during the Diamondbacks’ series with the Dodgers. We talked pressure pitching, Braves baseball, throwing strikes, college football, and Twitter.

  • From the deer stand to the pitcher’s mound: Wade Miley’s path to spotlight

    Wade Miley wears a lot of camouflage in the offseason. It keeps him covert up in the deer stand. But as hunting season came to a close this spring, when it was time for Miley to shed the camouflage uniform and don a Sedona red one, he remained hidden — not by a deer stand […]

  • Coyotes goalie Smith wants ownership resolution before new contract

    The Phoenix Coyotes would like to sign goalie Mike Smith to a contract extension, and with good reason.

  • NHL looking into Coyotes’ Game 5 comments

    There’s no denying that the Phoenix Coyotes were beaten soundly in the Western Conference Finals by the Los Angeles Kings.

Dustin Brown’s knee-on-knee hit […]
