    The best season in Phoenix Coyotes history has come to an end, and now the focus for general manager Don Maloney turns to the future.

  • How will the Suns proceed with Steve Nash?

    The Phoenix Suns are a basketball organization that faces a lot of tough decisions and questions over the course of what is being viewed as a pivotal off-season.

  • Graham: Bercovici has slight edge at QB

    Spring football has come and gone and there are still about 100 days until Todd Graham coaches his first game at Arizona State University. But Wednesday, Graham offered some insight as to how the wide-open quarterback battle is shaping up for the Sun Devils. The head coach was asked during a fan forum conference call […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs lose series to L.A.

    Stick a fork in ‘em. That’s right, I’m calling it, the 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks are out of the NL West race. Yes, I know they won convincingly on Wednesday, but let’s be honest about that Dodgers lineup; four of the starters were playing in Triple-A on Opening Day, and Andre Ethier wasn’t in the game […]
  • Brewers claim third baseman Cody Ransom

    The Milwaukee Brewers have claimed 36-year-old infielder Cody Ransom off of waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks designated Ransom for assignment on Monday, and replaced him with third baseman Josh Bell.

  • Arizona Wildcats add copper helmet for 2012

    The Arizona Wildcats are getting a new look for 2012. Or, at least, another option for game day headwear. The school announced Wednesday it is adding a copper helmet, giving it three options (blue and white being the others) to choose from. “Copper will not replace our traditional colors of red and blue, and the […]
  • D-backs GM Towers: ‘I’m tired of hearing about the excuses’

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are not anywhere near where they’d like to be, as they sit a good distance back of the Dodgers in the NL West and are struggling to find any sense of momentum as they sputter through the season. And, while the goal is still to improve and ultimately reach the postseason, GM […]

  • D-backs’ Putz gets vote of confidence from Gibson

    J.J. Putz was one of the biggest reasons why the Arizona Diamondbacks transformed from a last place team in 2009 and 2010 into a division champion. Putz registered a career-high 45 saves a season ago, and was nearly unhittable following the All-Star break when he converted all 24 of his opportunities and posted a minuscule […]
  • Cards Ryan Williams cleared for limited activity

    Another running back joined Cardinals practice Wednesday. Ryan Williams, recovering from right knee surgery, was given the green light for limited activity. He spent a portion of the second day of OTAs in both team (receiving handoffs) and individual drills (working on footwork) before retreating back to the sideline to work with the training staff. […]
  • Floyd and Fitzgerald are already in sync for Cardinals

    Larry Fitzgerald said he could not deny nor confirm allegations that rookie wideout Michael Floyd is staying with him these days. “He’s taken care of, from what I hear,” was all the Pro Bowler would say about how he may be helping Floyd off the field, but things are certainly different on it. Floyd, you […]
  • Understatement: Tuesday’s loss to Dodgers devastating for Diamondbacks

    Let us begin with a euphemism: “The Diamondbacks’ loss on Tuesday night was devastating.” By the end of the third inning on Tuesday night, I thought I was finally getting a glimpse of solid starting pitching combined with run support and defense. Josh Bell — the newly-ordained everyday third baseman — hit a 453-foot home […]
  • L.A.’s Brown won’t face hearing for Rozsival hit

    Moments before Dustin Penner beat Mike Smith for the series-clinching goal that sent the Los Angeles Kings to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Phoenix Coyotes were disconcerted. First, they were unraveled by an injury to Michal Rozsival that sent the Coyotes defenseman straight to the dressing room late in the overtime period. Secondly, they were […]
  • Did L.A. end two of our seasons Tuesday night?

    Oh, Los Angeles. We in Phoenix have long been saddled with the label of being L.A.’s little brother, much to our dismay. And sure, you’ve given us wedgies, wet willies and played countless practical jokes on us over the years and we’ve had no choice but to take it. But now, we’re getting older. More […]
  • D-backs’ Gibson: Roberts has a lot to give to this team

    For the struggling Ryan Roberts, little has gone according to plan this season. So when Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson announced Josh Bell would be taking over the reins at third base, yet another blow was dealt to a player who showed so much promise last year. Roberts, a consummate professional, accepts his role as a […]
  • Magical season ends on sour note for Coyotes

    Shane Doan sat at his locker in the Coyotes dressing room, quiet and alone in his thoughts. His team, hoping to become just the fourth team in NHL history to rally from an 0-3 deficit and win a postseason series, lost to the Kings 4-3 in overtime. The most magical season in franchise history came […]
  • Coyotes captain Shane Doan goes off on officials after loss to Kings

    Shane Doan was not happy following his team’s 4-3 loss to the Kings, one that eliminated the Coyotes from the postseason. Sure, watching the Kings advance to the Stanley Cup Final would be upsetting enough — especially when it happens on your home ice — but that’s not what had the captain’s attention after the […]
  • Cardinals RB Wells ‘confident’ after offseason knee surgery

    Statistically, Beanie Wells had his best season last year as an Arizona Cardinal. He rushed for over a thousand yards (1,047) for the first time in his three- year NFL career, while his 10 touchdowns were one more than he scored in his first two seasons combined. And to think he did all that feeling […]
