  • Good thing D-backs never traded Upton

    Roughly nine months ago Kevin Towers talked about Justin Upton, with conversations centered around possibly trading the talented right fielder. Amazing what time can do. Now, when the D-backs GM speaks of the 23-year-old, there is a different tone — and focus. “The more you watch him the more you watch him on an everyday […]
  • A former MVP sees why Justin Upton is in the discussion for the award

    One former MVP thinks Justin Upton should be in the discussion to win the award this season. That man just happens to be the right fielder’s hitting coach, Don Baylor. When Baylor was hired by the Arizona Diamondbacks last fall the only discussions Upton’s name had been involved in were of the trade variety. With […]
  • Expect the Cardinals to run a lot this season

    The Arizona Cardinals, in 2010, ran the football less than anyone in the NFL, gaining the fewest yards out of all 32 teams. Expect that to change in 2011.

  • D-backs GM Towers quickly turned to Overbay

    When the D-backs began play last Friday they didn’t feel like they needed another first baseman. Sure, they would have liked to have had better options at the position, but they felt fairly content with Xavier Nady and Paul Goldschmidt manning the position. Saying Lyle Overbay’s agent had called a couple days earlier asking if […]

  • Cardinals seem fine with their wide receivers

    Cardinals fans, it may be time to get used to the idea of hearing the names Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, Early Doucet, Chansi Stuckey, Stephen Williams and DeMarco Sampson, as they are likely to be the receivers catching passes from Cardinals quarterbacks this year. While many have been hoping to see the Cardinals acquire a […]
  • Horton will help, but players make the difference

    Ray Horton is not Bill Davis, and that might be a good thing. Not to knock Davis, the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator the last two seasons, but Arizona rarely stopped anyone during his tenure. “The Arizona Cardinals, last year, we all were privy to it, we were witness of their futility,” Sports 620 KTAR’s Ron Wolfley […]

    Maybe I should be worried about Larry Fitzgerald. With the breaking news reported by ESPN Monday (and every other media outlet three years ago), alerting the world to the fact that, without a contract extension, the Pro Bowler will be a free agent upon the conclusion of the 2011 season was discussed ad nauseam. While […]
  • Diamondbacks have chance to prove themselves

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are 68-53 and lead the NL West by two games, yet true believers are still tough to find. That could change over the next two weeks. The D-backs start a 10-game road trip Tuesday in Philadelphia, one that will take them from the City of Brotherly Love to Atlanta, before heading up […]
  • Cardinals rookie Sherman passing the test in training camp

    When the Arizona Cardinals selected fullback Anthony Sherman in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft they got themselves a true fullback who likes to hit people.

  • Cam Newton could open NFL career against Cardinals

    He ended his college career here, so it’s a perfect place to start his professional career.

  • Fitzgerald says Kolb can take team ‘where we all want to go’

    Larry Fitzgerald has not been shy about praising the guy who will be throwing him the ball this season. Whether it’s his accuracy, leadership or the fact that he has worked hard to learn the offense in a limited amount of time, you get the sense that if Kolb tells people he puts his heart […]
  • Fitzgerald says Cardinals have makings of a ‘special backfield’

    The Cardinals’ running game hasn’t been anything worth writing home about since the team moved to the desert, but that could change this season. Arizona enters the season with Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams and LaRod Stephens-Howling atop the depth chart, each bringing a different skill to the table. Combined, Larry Fitzgerald thinks the group will […]
