  • Coyotes goalie Mike Smith looks to ‘bring the A game’

    Mike Smith has been in this position before: getting ready for the playoffs. However, he has not been in this spot before: being the number-one goaltender on a playoff team. That said, the six-year veteran sees no reason to change his preparation as the Phoenix Coyotes ready themselves for Game 1 against the Chicago Blackhawks […]
  • Arizona guard Josiah Turner to transfer

    Josiah Turner arrived at the University of Arizona as a five-star recruit and one of the best point guard prospects in the country.

  • Mock draft links Suns to Duke’s Austin Rivers

    As the Suns continue to climb up the NBA standings they, in turn, are falling in the NBA’s draft order. Still out of the playoffs (for now), any mock draft has the team selecting in the latter part of the lottery. Should the Suns land at 14th, Chad Ford, in an ESPN Insider piece, says […]
  • ESPN insider: MLB’s best ‘pen carrying NL’s best team

    “I know this is over-used and it’s a cliché, but if you don’t have a good bullpen these days you’re dead,” ESPN MLB insider Tim Kurkjian told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. Well then, it’s a good thing the D-backs have a good bullpen. Sure it’s early in the season, but the fact that […]
  • Coyotes unfazed by the underdog role

    The 2012 Coyotes were not expected to be a playoff team. Yet, here they are making their third straight postseason appearance. Of course now that they’re in, no one expects the Coyotes to make much noise. “We were laughing because someone said we were the longest odds-on-favorite to win the Stanley Cup out of the […]
  • Playoffs? Suns will have to really earn spot

    Suns coach Alvin Gentry, in a late-March interview with our own Burns and Gambo, said the team needed to approach its final 15 games as if they were playoff contests. “We’ve got to treat every game as a playoff game,” Suns coach Alvin Gentry told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. “It has to be […]
  • Suns battle Grizzlies in crucial late-season game

    The Phoenix Suns are peaking at the right time. The Suns (30-27) have been on fire, streaking to the fourth-best mark in the NBA since the All-Star Break at 16-7, a mark bettered by only San Antonio, Chicago and Boston. However, Memphis (33-23) has also been playing well, notching a 14-8 record since the break. […]
  • D-backs 4-0 without great starting pitching

    A 4-0 start works well no matter how you dissect it, but it’s especially satisfying when you consider through four games, the Arizona Diamondbacks really haven’t enjoyed the spoils of their starting pitching. Ian Kennedy and Daniel Hudson were both effective but hardly dominating in their first starts. Josh Collmenter has some work to do, […]
  • Dudley willing to assume any role to help Suns win

    The Phoenix Suns have seemingly hit their stride, winning five of their last six games.

The Suns have seen some unlikely heroes step it up in recent weeks to […]

  • Sweep of Giants impressive start to D-backs’ season

    The Diamondbacks started the season with a bang, sweeping the San Francisco Giants in a three-game series. MLB Network’s Larry Bowa told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday that the wins over the Giants show the Diamondbacks mean business. “Everybody thought they were going to be good, but to sweep the Giants and the […]
  • Report: Coyotes deal progressing, second party named

    There are more rumblings of an imminent deal to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes. While we have heard this same story many times over, the amount of details being worked out is worth talking about. According to Phoenix Business Journal, the sale is progressing with the three groups that have already been reported, but now we […]

  • Luis Gonzalez weighs in on Ozzie Guillen, Miami Marlins

    Luis Gonzalez is one of the all-time great Arizona Diamondbacks. He’s a World Series champion, a home run derby winner and one of baseball’s greatest ambassadors. He’s also the son of Cuban immigrants, so what has transpired with Ozzie Guillen and the Miami Marlins hits relatively close to home. “If he wasn’t in Miami they […]
  • Kirk Gibson focused on defining D-backs roles

    Kirk Gibson has a tendency to press all the right buttons. He batted Chris Young second Friday and was rewarded with a two-run home run. He then put Aaron Hill in the two-hole Saturday, and was rewarded with a pair of home runs. Then, on Sunday, Gibson gave veteran Lyle Overbay the start at first, […]
  • ASU’s Corey Adams: ‘I don’t enjoy being hurt’

The tire along with two stationary bikes and some weight equipment make up muscle beach, an area in […]
