  • Report: D-backs sign high schooler Felipe Perez

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed high school right-handed pitcher Felipe Perez. According to the Los Angeles Times, the D-backs exploited a loophole in the new collective bargaining agreement that allows for any high school player who was not drafted to be a free agent.

  • Dwight Howard to Lakers means nothing to Suns now

    It’s not like the Phoenix Suns had aspirations of competing for the Pacific Division title before the Los Angeles Lakers acquired Dwight Howard. What, Luis Scola, Goran Dragic and Michael Beasley had Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Steve Nash worried there was all of a sudden a new threat to their division dominance? Get real. […]
  • Summing up the D-backs road trip

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have been a question mark throughout the 2012 MLB season, performing well below the expectations many made at the start of the year. But somehow, the D-backs are still in the hunt for the NL West crown with only a month and a half until October baseball begins. With only four games […]
  • A closer look: Kubel homers twice in win

  • Former Cardinal DRC finally learns how to hit somebody

    Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie had a reputation for being an incapable unwilling tackler in Arizona, a trait that helped lead to him being traded prior to last season. Well, folks, it appears DRC is afraid no more! Thursday night, in the Eagles’ preseason opener, the former Cardinal took a shot at Steelers QB Byron Leftwich that will, […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs split four in Pittsburgh

    The Diamondbacks should really stop pitching to Andrew McCutchen. If you were to look up the definition of the phrase “owning a ballclub” in a dictionary, there would be a picture of McCutchen standing on the D-backs logo laughing. No one in the majors with at least 15 at-bats against Arizona has a higher batting […]
  • Playing is as important as playing well for Arizona Cardinals QB Kolb

    You know what was weird about seeing Kevin Kolb lying on the field last Sunday in pain, injured? Not the fact that the QB was hurt, as that happens far too often. But the reaction from the media and Cardinals fans alike to Kolb exiting the game was more indifferent than upset, more understanding than […]
  • Just in case you thought HS football in AZ was big

    High school football in Arizona is steadily improving. Athletes from all over the state receive full-ride scholarships to powerhouse football programs all over the nation.

  • Young, Upton ejected after strike three call

    Chris Young, typically a calm player, had a rare loss of temper Wednesday night. In the top of the seventh inning with two outs and bases loaded, Young was ejected for the first time in his career after a questionable strike three call to end the inning. Young immediately threw his bat and helmet to […]
  • Confidence will help Cards offense start faster

    If you were watching the Hall of Fame game on August 5th, chances are you saw how inept the Cardinals offense looked in the first quarter. The unit started slow in the season’s first preseason game of the year. A 15-yard scamper by LaRod Stephens-Howling was negated by a Kevin Kolb interception on the next […]

  • D-backs Blanco has successful surgery

    Diamondbacks catcher Henry Blanco underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. The 40-year-old suffered the injury during an August 5th game against Philadelphia. The injury occurred when Phillies outfielder John Mayberry Jr. slid into Blanco’s glove on a close play at home plate. Blanco left immediately after […]
  • Tales from the road: Offense steps forward and Ryan Williams’ Chiefs connection

    For the first time this week it appeared that the Cardinals offense was a step ahead of the defense in practice. Defensive coordinator Ray Horton did his best to light a fire under his squad after noticing the disadvantage, but for the offensive coaches this was likely a breath of fresh air. Both Kevin Kolb […]
  • Whisenhunt knows Cardinals must improve tackling

    The biggest story to come out of Sunday’s preseason opener for the Arizona Cardinals was Kevin Kolb’s performance prior to injury. After that? Tackling or, rather, a lack of it. The Saints marched down the field on their opening possession against a Cardinals defense that seemed helpless to stop them, aided much of the way […]
  • Might be Wade Miley vs. Bryce Harper for rookie of the year

    They were both National League All-Stars. They are both in the thick of the playoff race. They are both eligible for the National League Rookie of the Year award. But only one of them has played well in the season’s second half. Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley and Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper may be the frontrunners […]
  • MLB analyst: Chris Johnson a different player right now

    Chris Johnson has been on a bit of a tear since joining the Arizona Diamondbacks. Acquired on July 29 for a couple of minor leaguers, the third baseman has hit a ridiculous .345 with five home runs and 15 RBI in just eight games, leading many to wonder if he is the best trade pickup […]
  • Paulie Calv-ary rides in to defend QB

    Affirmation or aberration? That’s the question coming off the Hall of Fame Game. And, yes, Paulie Preseason is posing another QB Question. Specifically, we’re referring to the performance of Kevin Kolb. As you might recall, his first pass attempt was intercepted and his last snap resulted in a game-ending injury. Yes, that Kevin Kolb. Or, […]
  • Olympic diver gets a zero

    It’s not often when watching the Olympics when the viewer has an “I could do that” moment. German diver Stephan Feck supplied one earlier this week when he botched a dive on the three-meter springboard and landed flat on his back. It’s not exactly Phoenix sports-related, but this is too good to pass up. Follow […]
  • Tales from the road: Storms move Cardinals inside

    While the locals here in St. Joseph were hoping the storms brought a bit more rain than the 15-20 minutes of heavy downpour we received Wednesday morning to aid in their summer long drought, the Cardinals were happy to have a suitable alternative for their morning walk-through which took place in the state of the […]
