  • Cardinals rookie Fleming looks forward to facing Fitzgerald

    Cardinals rookie Jamell Fleming did not expect to be there in the third round for the Arizona Cardinals. Figuring he’d be a late second rounder, the corner from Oklahoma didn’t think he’d end up in the Valley — until, of course, he did. “They called me early on in the round, like right when the […]
  • D-backs need to capitalize on golden opportunity

    It’s only mid-May, but the clock is ticking on the Arizona Diamondbacks. Currently 8.5 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West, the D-backs’ lackluster 16-22 start has applied pressure early in the season to “get their act together”. Overcoming a double-digit deficit in the standings is never easy, so Kirk Gibson’s club […]
  • Lewis: No downside to giving Burfict a shot

    Former Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been through his fair share of ups and downs, and after going undrafted in the NFL, he has gotten his shot with the Cincinnati Bengals. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said that he was happy to sign Burfict, because there was absolutely no risk. During an interview on NFL […]
  • Smith: No need to hit the panic button

    Down 2-0, there’s no doubt that the Phoenix Coyotes have a hill to climb if they are going to make a comeback against the Los Angeles Kings in the Western Conference Final. Coach Dave Tippett admits they were outplayed in Game 2, and calls it one of the most lopsided performances he has seen. “We’ve […]
  • Chris Young homers in grand fashion for Visalia

    Chris Young cannot return to the Diamondbacks soon enough. The outfielder, out since injuring his right shoulder on April 17, has been playing for Single-A Visalia as he works his way back into form. And, after only a couple of games, it seems like he has. Young went 1-for-4 Wednesday night with a grand slam, […]
  • Are D-backs considering sending Goldschmidt to minors?

    Paul Goldschmidt entered the season as the Diamondbacks’ starting first baseman, a player the team hoped could man the position for many years to come. It seemed like a good plan, given that the 24-year-old had batted .250 with eight home runs in just 156 at bats in 2011 after just crushing the ball in […]
  • D-backs GM Towers: Don’t pin offensive struggles on just Upton

    Justin Upton may be the face of the Diamondbacks’ offensive struggles, but he’s not the only one having issues at the plate. If he was, the D-backs would be hitting better than .248 as a team, a mark good enough for seventh in a woeful National League. “We said when we got here it’s going […]
  • Coyotes’ Hanzal suspended for Game 3

    And the road to a comeback just got a little more difficult for the Phoenix Coyotes. Center Martin Hanzal was suspended for one game by NHL discipline chief Brendan Shanahan. The punishment will take Hanzal off the ice for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Los Angeles Kings Thursday night in L.A. […]
  • D-backs’ Daniel Hudson hopes to return Memorial Day weekend

    For the first time in four weeks, Diamondbacks starter Daniel Hudson took the mound in a game-like setting. He pitched in an extended spring training game against the Oakland A’s at Papago Park in Phoenix Wednesday morning. “It went okay,” he said following his 54-pitch effort. “My arm feels great; just the command is still […]
  • Cardinals owner ranked 24th in NFL

    Bill Bidwill has a reputation as one of the NFL’s worst owners, with much of it deserved because his teams have perennially been at or near the bottom of the standings. Things have changed around the organization ever since Michael Bidwill took over, with impressive results to show for it. However, that wasn’t enough for […]
  • Cardinals sign DE Landon Cohen

    The Arizona Cardinals signed free agent defensive end Landon Cohen to a contract, the club announced Wednesday. Cohen, a four-year pro from Ohio University, spent the 2011 season with the New England Patriots, playing in one game. The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Cohen was originally a 7th round draft pick of the Detroit Lions in 2008. In […]
  • ESPN MLB insider on D-backs: Not a dire situation

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are sputtering along with a 16-21 record, looking nothing like a team that can contend for the National League crown. Already 8.5 games back of the NL West-leading Dodgers, some are prepared to write the D-backs off. Not so fast, says ESPN MLB insider Tim Kurkjian. “If the Diamondbacks can just hang […]
  • Coyotes’ Doan, Morris avoid suspension from NHL

    The Phoenix Coyotes are down 2-0 and have been woefully out-played in the Western Conference Finals by the Los Angeles Kings. They’re heading to Los Angeles for games three and four. Let’s face it, this is a hockey team in need of some good news, and on Wednesday, the Coyotes got some concerning their captain […]
  • Justin Upton’s responsibility

    Winston Churchill once said, “Responsibility is the price of greatness.” Even though I know Churchill was not thinking of baseball, the Arizona Diamondbacks or Justin Upton when he said this, watching Justin Upton play the game of baseball for the Arizona Diamondbacks makes me think of Churchill. Writing the paragraph above made me think of […]
  • Coyotes’ Hanzal facing possible discipline

    Phoenix Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal’s status for the remainder of the Western Conference Finals is up in the air. Hanzal received a five-minute boarding major and a game misconduct for his less-than-clean hit on Los Angeles captain Dustin Brown during the third period of the Kings’ 4-0 Game 2 win Tuesday night. A hearing will […]
  • Irony turns out to be helpful for Arizona Wildcats

    Irony can be helpful. The Arizona Wildcats, in dire need of a point guard for the 2012-13 season, were able to find one in Xavier transfer Mark Lyons, who is graduating this summer and will be eligible to play this upcoming season. “Very seldom do you leave a player as a college coach and then […]
  • Coyotes show wrong kind of fight in Game 2 loss to Kings

    The old joke nearly rang true Tuesday night in Glendale. I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out! It’s only “nearly” because, honestly, this wasn’t much of a hockey game, though there were plenty of fights — or, at the very least, non-hockey moments. Facing what had been deemed a “must-win” game […]
  • Cardinals rookie Massie can’t wait to face team’s stars

    Bobby Massie does not know why he slipped to the fourth round in the 2012 NFL Draft. Graded by many to be a second-round talent, that he fell to the Cardinals at 112 is something that will motivate him going forward, as he looks to prove to everyone that he should have been taken sooner. […]
  • Torres’ suspension appeal set for Thursday

    According to a report, Phoenix Coyotes forward Raffi Torres will have his chance to meet with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman to appeal the length of his 25-game suspension. The meeting is scheduled to take place in New York City Thursday morning. Torres was slapped with the longest punishment in the NHL since 2007 for his […]
  • Cardinals agree to terms with four draft choices

    The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to terms with four of their seven 2012 draft choices, the team announced Tuesday. Well, the team announced three of the four, as fourth- round pick Bobby Massie broke the news on via his personal Twitter account. At any rate, the signings of Massie, fifth-round pick Senio Kelemete, and sixth-round […]
