  • Larry Fitzgerald : ‘I’ll likely end my career with [Kevin Kolb]’

    The addition of Kevin Kolb may be enough to keep Larry Fitzgerald in an Arizona Cardinals uniform for the next few years. “Now, knowing that we’re going to have Kevin, he’s going to be here for the next 6-7 years,” Fitzgerald told Gary Mihoces of USA Today. “I’ll likely end my career with him.” This […]
  • New LB Stewart Bradley ready to make plays for Cardinals

    Kevin Kolb may get the bulk of the attention, but he’s not the only player the Cardinals poached from the Philadelphia Eagles roster. The Cardinals signed linebacker Stewart Bradley to help solidify a defense that struggled in 2010, and the 27-year-old thinks he’s a good fit in the desert. “It’s definitely a linebacker defense. There […]
  • Which Beanie Wells will show up for the Cardinals?

    As a fan of the Cards you may be wondering why Beanie Wells is still the team’s starting running back. Wells only rushed for 397 yards and two touchdowns last season, and didn’t look great in his 2011 preseason debut, either. “If you watched Beanie Wells against Oakland you probably asked why haven’t we traded […]
  • Food held Arizona QB Foles back

    Arizona quarterback Nick Foles passed for 3,191 yards and 20 touchdowns last season, leading the Wildcats to the seven wins and an appearance in the Alamo Bowl. A solid season, sure, but the signal caller enters his senior season with a new diet, one that should help him perform even better. According to the Tucson […]
  • Upton means most to his team, but is he the MVP?

    There is a stat out there that judges a player by his wins above replacement value, better known as WAR. Essentially, it looks at how much a team would suffer if a player was replaced in the lineup. So, how much better is one guy compared to his backup? By the metric, according to Jayson […]
  • Cardinals need Darnell Dockett to step up in 2011

    Expectations for Darnell Dockett in 2010 were higher than Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg would be if they shared a tour bus. Despite the high hopes — no pun intended — the defensive lineman didn’t quite live up to the hype. While Dockett didn’t play horribly last year, Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug Franz thinks he […]
  • Which Cardinals to watch Friday in Green Bay

    Preseason football doesn’t count for much, so when the games are played it’s tough to really determine who did well. Especially because, as Cardinals insider Ron Wolfley said, veterans may not be playing as hard as they can. “They go out and they just mentally don’t, the intensity level is not there,” he said. “It’s […]
  • Franz: ‘[Upton] looks like a DH playing right field’

    For all his success at the plate, Justin Upton’s play in right field has been disappointing. Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug Franz told listeners Friday that his play has fallen off over the last few weeks. “Justin Upton…all of a sudden, has anybody noticed in the last few weeks he looks like a DH playing right […]
  • Clutch, thy name is Justin Upton

    Baseball has a flare for the dramatic this season. According to Yahoo Sports, 10 percent of all baseball games have ended with the home team walking off with a win. That’s the highest percentage since 1987, according to research by USA Today. Follow @theAdamGreen

  • Former NHL owner in line to buy Phoenix Coyotes

    Can it be true? The Phoenix Business Journal said that the former owner of the San Jose Sharks is ready to snap up the owner-less Phoenix Coyotes – and that a sales agreement could be worked out as soon as next week.

  • Justin Upton, best defensive right fielder in baseball?

    We all know about how Justin Upton has improved at the plate, as his numbers there have put him in the MVP conversation. However, according to a report on Yahoo.com, it’s Upton’s work with the glove that may win him the award. The tipping point in his favor might be defense. Upton is the best […]
  • Fitzgerald sets a deadline, but what if it passes with no contract?

    September 4, 2011 has suddenly become an important date in Arizona Cardinals history. It’s been reported that if the Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald don’t agree to a contract extension by then the talks will be put on hold until the season ends. The Cardinals, certainly, do not want to see the Pro Bowler reach the […]
  • Edgar Renteria would be a good fit with the Diamondbacks

    If the Diamondbacks are looking to acquire another shortstop for the stretch run, they could do plenty worse than Cincinnati’s Edgar Renteria. “He’s not great, he’s not going to set the world on fire,” Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug Franz said. “But I like him for a couple of reasons. “He’s not going to get in […]
  • For D-backs, it’s all about the bullpen

    The individual seasons put together by both Justin Upton and Ian Kennedy may be grabbing the headlines, but they may not be the main reason for the Arizona Diamondbacks’ turn from worst to first. According to ESPN, it’s the team’s bullpen that deserves a large share of the credit. The team has reduced its bullpen […]
  • Expect Cardinals starters to play more this preseason

    Getting ready for just their second preseason game, the Arizona Cardinals are not yet into the part of the season where they truly game plan for an opponent. That makes it even more difficult to integrate a new quarterback, according to Cardinals insider Ron Wolfley. “When you really start preparing for a team and becoming […]
  • ESPN is noticing the Arizona Diamondbacks

    Not surprisingly, it took a little while for ESPN to catch on to what the Diamondbacks were doing. Pedro Gomez, talking to Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf, said he’s been pushing for the network to look into Arizona for a little while. “We would have our meetings every week and I would just mention […]
  • Diamondbacks’ Derrick Hall: ‘We have been looking’

    It was reported Wednesday that the Arizona Diamondbacks are interested in acquiring Reds shortstop Edgar Renteria. Renteria, of course, would provide depth at a position the D-backs are thin at and a veteran presence for a team hoping to make a playoff run. Asked about the possibility on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf, D-backs […]
  • The Arizona Cardinals are officially on the clock to re-sign Larry Fitzgerald

    For the last six months there have been two storylines that have dominated when it comes to the Arizona Cardinals. Will they find a franchise quarterback and can they sign Larry Fitzgerald to a contract extension? It seems like they’ve answered the first — at least in some people’s minds — and a resolution to […]
  • Success for the Diamondbacks is ‘great for baseball’

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are a great story. The team has made a surprising run to the top of the NL West just one year after occupying the division’s basement and, while people have expected them to fall off by now, they show no signs of slowing down. For a while it seemed nobody outside the […]
