  • Cardinals need O’Brien Schofield to step up

    The Cardinals selected O’Brien Schofield in the fourth round of the 2010 draft believing they were getting a top-notch pass rusher at a discounted rate.

    Ken Whisenhunt has been realistic about his expectations for the Arizona Cardinals through the first two preseason games.

  • White Sox downplay how good Diamondbacks’ starter Daniel Hudson is

    In hindsight the Arizona Diamondbacks committed armed robbery — pun intended –when they traded Edwin Jackson for Daniel Hudson.

  • Kirk Gibson not concerned with Diamondbacks’ recent struggles

    It’s no secret that the Arizona Diamondbacks, particularly their bats, have struggled as of late. Just like fans, a prolonged slump can affect the players’ psyche.

  • Cardinals add Brodie Croyle to QB mix

    Down some quarterbacks, the Arizona Cardinals picked up free agent Brodie Croyle Wednesday. The question is, why?
