  • Gibson, D-backs enjoying the role of underdogs

    PHOENIX – Not much was expected of the Arizona Diamondbacks this season and with the team currently in first place, manager Kirk Gibson would like people to continue doubting his club. “This team, we like people to say we’re not that good. We like them to take us lightly,” said Gibson on the Sports 620 […]
  • Diamondbacks inquire about Edgar Renteria

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have been down a shortstop since Stephen Drew was lost for the season with an injury.

  • Whisenhunt expects Kolb to see more playing time against Green Bay

    PHOENIX – As the Arizona Cardinals head to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers on Friday, coach Ken Whisenhunt is expecting quarterback Kevin Kolb to get an increase in playing time. “He’ll play a little bit more than he did last week but I don’t know how much more, so into the […]
  • Beanie Wells coming on strong in Cardinals camp

    With the departure of Tim Hightower to the Redskins, it’s time for Beanie Wells to prove he was worthy of the Cardinals top pick in the 2009 draft. Wells, who has battled inconsistency and injuries in his two seasons, looks likes he’s running with “quickness and authority” according to ESPN’s John Clayton. Clayton, in a […]
  • Kevin Kolb says Andre Roberts has been tearing it up in practice

    It appears fans and media members may be the only ones not comfortable with Cardinals receivers who aren’t named Larry Fitzgerald. Usually it has been Ken Whisenhunt shrugging off the idea of adding another veteran to the group, but now the team’s quarterback has chimed in as well. Kolb, who has the task of completing […]
  • 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. According to tight end Jeff King, who signed with Arizona in the off-season, one of the reasons he chose the Cardinals was because of the style […]
  • 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 […]

  • Worried about Larry Fitzgerald’s contract? Just listen to the man

    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.

  • 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.
