  • Desert Dog Blog: Miele’s Night at the ESPYs

    Coyotes prospect Andy Miele didn’t win the 2011 ESPY for Best Male College Athlete on Wednesday night, but that didn’t dampen his experience at the annual star-studded awards show in Los Angeles. That’s because Miele, who won the Hobey Baker Award in April, got to rub elbows with royalty of the sports world for a […]
  • Marcin Gortat considering playing in Russia during NBA lockout

    Add Phoenix Sun center Marcin Gortat to the list of players considering a move overseas if the NBA lockout continues. According to Polish media reports, Gortat said he is likely to play in Russia. Outdated is my opportunity to play in the Polish league, which is constantly evolving, but in terms of Russia’s far inferior […]
  • Ken Whisenhunt encouraged by NFL labor negotiations

    After months of uncertainty, the NFL lockout appears to be nearing an end. The players and the owners appear to have agreed upon a rookie wage scale and the return of football seems imminent, which is news that excites everyone involved with the NFL. “When you’re hearing the positive signs that we all are you […]
  • Kyle Orton a better fit than Kevin Kolb

    The tides may be turning. After months of hearing about Kevin Kolb and his role as the future quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals, it appears Kyle Orton is gaining ground. “Rumors [in Seattle] is that it’s a first and a third [for Kolb],” Doug Farrar of Yahoo.com said on Sports 620 KTAR’s Gambo and Ash.

  • Arizona Cardinals have an ocean of options

    You’ve probably read that best-selling business book Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten, right? Yeah, me neither. But considering that the author is an AZ resident who frequents our local sporting events and doesn’t exactly sit in the Uecker seats… uh, I’d probably be well-advised to read it, no doubt. Until then, here’s the […]

  • Steve Nash would be hurt most by lockout

    While nobody wants it to happen, most people expect the NBA’s lockout to drag on for a while. And, while many will be affected off the court, certain players will probably find it tougher to deal with the time off. According to ESPN, Steve Nash is one such player. One has to wonder whether Nash, […]
  • Second half looks promising for Diamondbacks

    Ninety-two games down, 70 to go. The Arizona Diamondbacks begin the unofficial second half of their season just three games back of the NL West-leading Giants, legitimately eyeing a playoff spot for the first time in what seems like forever (it’s really only been a few years). Incidentally enough, the D-backs return to the field […]
  • An annual ritual? Cardinals, Seahawks after same QB

    The Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks both need a QB, and they appear to be after the same player. With the bidding war sure to be intense, the last thing the Cardinals want to do is see Charlie Whitehurst head to the northwest. Wait, what? Yeah, roughly a year ago the birds battled over the […]
  • Could the Seahawks force the Cardinals to overpay for Kevin Kolb?

    Sal Paolantonio has already made it clear that the Seahawks and Cardinals will battle it out to obtain the services of Kevin Kolb, but what exactly could that do to the asking price for the Eagles signal caller? Like bidding in an eBay auction, the additional competition will likely just raise the price in the […]
  • Veteran starters on the D-backs’ radar

    While much of the talk has been about who the Diamondbacks are looking at to bolster their bullpen, there is some talk about them improving the starting rotation too. According to Sports 620 KTAR’s John Gambadoro the Diamondbacks are interested in a host of pitchers, including Ricky Nolasco, James Shields, Wandy Rodriguez and Jeremy Guthrie. […]
  • Jason Isringhausen: Still in the league, a D-backs target

    The Arizona Diamondbacks’ search for bullpen help may take them to New York, where a name most haven’t heard for a while (and even more probably can’t spell) could be a player the D-backs are interested in. Jason Isringhausen, the 38-year-old reliever, is a D-backs target, according to Sports 620 KTAR’s John Gambadoro. Isringhausen, who […]
  • Arizona Diamondbacks set to outright Juan Miranda

    When the Diamondbacks traded for Juan Miranda last November they did so hoping the 28-year-old could become the every day first baseman the team needed. Swing and a miss, both literally and figuratively. The experiment appears to be coming to a close, though, as Miranda, who has hit just .213 in 174 at bats, will […]
  • Mickael Pietrus elects to have knee surgery

    Mickael Pietrus has elected to have knee surgery this summer. According to his agent the swingman will get his knee cleaned out . The surgery is nothing major and should not keep Pietrus, who picked up his $5.3 million option for next season, out for very long. Pietrus will not play for the French national […]
  • Phoenix Coyotes are NHL’s biggest disappointment

    The Diamondbacks are in the middle of a playoff race, but the other professional sports teams in the Valley are causing fans to scratch their heads. The Phoenix Coyotes still do not know where they will call home in two seasons, but wherever it is, the fans are likely to be frustrated. The Business Journals […]
  • D-backs could fix ‘pen by finding a new closer

    J.J. Putz has helped Diamondbacks fans forget about Brandon Lyon, Chad Qualls and Juan Gutierrez. With 21 saves and a 3.12 ERA this season, he has been a big factor in the team’s surprising play. Still, the D-backs find themselves looking for bullpen help, and Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug Franz has the solution to the […]
  • The Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks set to battle over Kevin Kolb

    As division rivals the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks go head-to-head twice a year. Thanks to the lockout and a lack of first string quarterbacks on the rosters, the two teams may square off three times in 2011. No, part of the new collective bargaining agreement won’t include a third game against division opponents — […]

  • Pitching staff key to Arizona Diamondbacks postseason run

    The Arizona Diamondbacks need more pitchers. Offense is important and can carry a team through a regular season, but pitching wins in October. While the D-backs want to make a trade or two at the deadline, they will need to decide on both their short and long term goals. “I would put relievers as more […]
  • D-backs’ Allen gets the call — finally

    The Diamondbacks first basemen this year have, shall we say, struggled. Juan Miranda, who has garnered most of the playing time, has posted a Chris Burke-like .213 average with seven home runs and 23 RBI. So, really, it should not come as a surprise that the D-backs have recalled first baseman Brandon Allen from Triple-A […]
