  • The Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks set to battle over Kevin Kolb

    As division rivals the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks go head-to-head twice a year. Thanks to the lockout and a lack of first string quarterbacks on the rosters, the two teams may square off three times in 2011. No, part of the new collective bargaining agreement won’t include a third game against division opponents — […]

  • Pitching staff key to Arizona Diamondbacks postseason run

    The Arizona Diamondbacks need more pitchers. Offense is important and can carry a team through a regular season, but pitching wins in October. While the D-backs want to make a trade or two at the deadline, they will need to decide on both their short and long term goals. “I would put relievers as more […]
  • D-backs’ Allen gets the call — finally

    The Diamondbacks first basemen this year have, shall we say, struggled. Juan Miranda, who has garnered most of the playing time, has posted a Chris Burke-like .213 average with seven home runs and 23 RBI. So, really, it should not come as a surprise that the D-backs have recalled first baseman Brandon Allen from Triple-A […]
  • D-backs to target bullpen help, maybe San Diego’s Bell?

    The Diamondbacks would like to make a move. Though they’re just three games back of the first place San Francisco Giants, they understand there is room to improve. Specifically, in the bullpen. “For us, I think the biggest impact we can have on this team is bullpen help,” D-backs President and CEO Derrick Hall said […]
  • Diamondbacks would like to trade, but at what cost?

    Derrick Hall knows the Diamondbacks need help if they are to be more than just NL West champions. With holes at third, first, the starting rotation and in the bullpen, there are potentially-helpful players available to the D-backs. But, which players would Arizona, in turn, make available to other teams? Not all of them. Follow […]
  • Diamondbacks are good, but trade could make them great

    Though just three games out of first in the NL West, the Arizona Diamondbacks feel like they could win the division with the roster they have now. So, any deal they make would be with eyes towards a greater goal. “Overall, the group that we have can win and has shown they can win, but […]
  • Patrick Peterson is one of the NFL’s future stars

    While linemen are arguably the most important people on the football field, fans love to watch impact players. Touchdowns, interceptions and jaw dropping hits are what drive ratings and jersey sales. Everyone wants an impact player and in Patrick Peterson, the Cardinals seem to have one. In an ESPN blog about the future stars of […]
  • The Arizona Cardinals can learn from LeBron James

    Larry Fitzgerald is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, but the Arizona Cardinals can not let his status as a free agent after the season influence what they decide to do with the quarterback position. It is a huge mistake for an organization to base decisions around one player — just ask the […]
  • Odds are the Arizona Diamondbacks are better than we thought

    The internet was buzzing on Wednesday with news of a leaked “The Dark Knight Rises” Batman trailer. No surprise, the Comic-Con types are amped up like impatient toddlers on Christmas Eve. Me? I just shrugged my shoulders for you on the internet. What’s the point of eating an appetizer for a meal that’s still a […]
  • All-Star Game was fun, doesn’t need to return

    The Arizona Diamondbacks waited a long time to host the MLB All-Star Game, and now that it’s over people may be wondering when it will return to the Valley of the Sun. Not Sports 620 KTAR’s Mark Asher. “It just didn’t have the same feel as I remember the All-Star games having,” Asher said on […]
  • If Upton puts up the numbers he’ll be an All-Star starter

    Justin Upton has been to two All-Star Games in four years, and at just 23 years of age there’s a good chance he’ll attend a few more before his career is done with. But will he ever start in the game? “He’s got to be one of those guys who hits 35-40 home runs and […]
  • Dockett has the Cards’ biggest mouth — and that’s a good thing

    Darnell Dockett is a character. He tweets while being pulled over by the police, about his pet alligator and, well, anything else that’s on his mind. He’s funny, confusing and, sometimes, frustrating. But he’s not James Harrison. Harrison, of course, is the Steelers linebacker who, among other things, voiced his displeasure for NFL Commissioner Roger […]
  • Sun Devils, Wildcats boast NFL-level talent

    While they may not be the most talented teams in the nation, both the Arizona State Sun Devils and University of Arizona Wildcats have a handful of players who will likely be playing on Sundays at some point in their careers. According to the ESPN Pac-12 Blog, a combined 16 players — nine from Arizona, […]
  • Mark Grace and Justin Timberlake had All-Star Game’s most interesting moment

    There were a lot of great moments during this week’s MLB All-Star festivities in Phoenix, but the most interesting one didn’t even involve a player in the game or anything that happened on the field. The most memorable All-Star moment took place during the bottom of the 4th inning at the pool in right field […]
  • PETA talks to Darnell Dockett

    While media and fans may love Darnell Dockett and his new pet alligator “Nino,” PETA does not feel the same. The pro-animal organization sent Dockett a letter acknowledging that he had purchased the alligator and telling him to get rid of it. Dear Mr. Dockett, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) was alerted […]
  • All-Star ratings are lowest ever

    Baseball fans in Phoenix may have enjoyed the All-Star game, but it does not appear the rest of the country did. According to Sportsbusiness Daily, the 2011 All-Star game was the worst rated All-Star game ever. The 7.9 overnight rating is down 13.2 percent from last season’s game. With both the NBA and NFL locked […]
  • Cards’ Feely not as optimistic about end of lockout

    While it may appear that the NFL lockout could be nearing its end, the Cardinals’ Jay Feely isn’t quite so sure. The team’s player representative for the player’s association, according to AZCardinals.com, told ESPN’s Sportscenter, “I do not think (a resolution) is as close as some people make it out to be.” That’s probably not […]
  • Joey Porter, Ken whisenhunt to participate in celebrity golf tournament

    Although they cannot participate in football related activities due to the NFL lockout, a few current and former Cardinals will get together to golf. Joey Porter, Ken Whisenhunt, Steve Buerlein, Chris Chandler and Jim McMahon will all take part in the 2011 American Centurty Championship celebrity golf tournament July 14-17. Porter will play in the […]
  • Defensive lineman leaves Sun Devils

    The Arizona State defense took a hit Wednesday as senior defensive end James Brooks announced he was leaving the team for personal reasons. Brooks, who may best be remembered for his blocking of extra points in the Territorial Cup game against Arizona, has 8 career sacks and 53 tackles. He left the team once before, […]
