  • Arizona State LB Brandon Magee out for season

    The injury bug has taken another bite out of the Arizona State football squad.

  • Diamondbacks get down but they’re never out

    The Arizona Diamondbacks took three of four games from the Houston Astros this week, needing late rallies for two of the wins.

  • Cardinals O-line has ups and downs in preseason opener

    Things didn’t start so well for the offensive line. Kevin Kolb was forced to scramble a couple times and there wasn’t much room for Beanie Wells to run. “We had too many mental mistakes with our starting offensive line,” Cardinals Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “But as far as protection went I thought they did […]
  • Chris Young, Diamondbacks still earning respect

    Chris Young’s walk-off homer Thursday night against the Astros was his first home run since July 2nd. That alone would make it a refreshing moment, but the fact that the Astros disrespected Young by leaving a lefty in to face him made it even more satisfying. “I hadn’t hit a home run in a while, […]
  • Cardinals backs off and running

    Beanie Wells got the start in Thursday night’s preseason opener and, well, let’s just say he had a solid, if unspectacular night.

  • Whisenhunt saw positives in preseason opener

    The final score really doesn’t matter. Sure, the Cardinals beat the Raiders 24-18 in the preseason opener Thursday night, but because it was just that — preseason — coming out with a win wasn’t the top objective. No, the Cardinals wanted to execute their assignments and come away healthy and, save for Todd Heap’s sprained […]

  • Cardinals have to address No. 2 receiver spot if they hope to be contenders

    The Arizona Cardinals have only had a handful of practices and have only played one preseason game.

  • Justin Upton, the Diamondbacks’ legitimate MVP candidate

    Justin Upton is having a good season for the Arizona Diamondbacks. A .300 average, 23 home runs, 72 RBI, 75 runs scored and 17 stolen bases are certainly numbers worthy of an All-Star appearance, but an MVP award, too?
