  • Not crazy to think more fans should go to D-backs games

    The Arizona Diamondbacks’ attendance woes are no secret. The Houston Astros have not helped things, but overall the D-backs just don’t draw as well as they’d like or, really, like a first place team should. Arizona ranks 21st in the Major Leagues, seeing an average of 23,962 fans each night at Chase Field. Sports 620 […]
  • Oklahoma would be special in the Pac-12

    The Pac-12 will kickoff its inaugural season shortly, having added both Colorado and Utah to the mix. Still, conference commissioner Larry Scott failed in his dream of creating a “super conference,” unable to lure Texas from the Big 12. But now, with rumors of Texas A&M possibly heading to the SEC, Scott may have a […]
  • Cardinal sin? Another receiver is off the market

    The Arizona Cardinals have maintained that they are fine with the receivers currently on the roster, but it’s anyone’s guess as to how truthful their claims are. If, in fact, the team is in the market for a wideout, their number of options took another hit Thursday. Former Jets WR Jericho Cotchery will agree to […]
  • Countdown is on for D-backs to sign Archie Bradley

    When the Diamondbacks selected pitcher Archie Bradley out of Broken Arrow High School they were getting a guy with great stuff — and an offer to play quarterback at Oklahoma. There was some thought that the D-backs may have a somewhat difficult time signing the 6-foot-4 right-hander, a task the team has until Monday to […]
  • Kolb, starters likely to play more than usual Thursday

    NFL starters don’t usually play much in the first preseason game of the year, but then again, this is not your usual preseason. The Arizona Cardinals will take the field in Oakland Thursday, just one week after the entire team — including new QB Kevin Kolb — began practicing in Flagstaff. That’s why the signal […]
  • Cardinals may be comfortable with Roberts and Doucet, but is Fitzgerald?

    Three years ago the Arizona Cardinals featured a trio of 1,000 yard receivers, as Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston helped Kurt Warner torch opposing secondaries on the way to Super Bowl XLIII. Only Fitzgerald remains, though, and while the Cardinals appear to be content with their group of receivers, one of the in-house […]
  • Arizona Diamondbacks still willing to add a piece

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are in sole position of first place in the NL West for the first time since June. If you told most people back in March they would be in contention this late in the season, let alone in first place, they probably would have laughed at you. While expectations weren’t exactly high […]
  • Collmenter steps up in big way for Diamondbacks

    It was an important start for Josh Collmenter. The D-backs rookie, pitching for his job (at least, in the eyes of some), had given up 11 runs over his previous two starts, throwing a total of six innings. Wednesday night he went seven, and wow did the Diamondbacks need every one of them in their […]
  • Gonzalez remains optimistic about Marquis, Goldschmidt

    Nearly two weeks ago the Diamondbacks made a few moves, including trading for pitcher Jason Marquis and calling up first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from Double-A Mobile. Neither has had much success since donning the Sedona Red, with Marquis posting a 12.38 ERA in two starts and Goldschmidt struggling his way to a .192 batting average […]
  • Putz showcases athleticism in win over Astros

    The tying run is at second base with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. J.J. Putz is in to close the game, one in which the D-backs rallied from six down to take the lead. A win against one of the NL’s worst teams would be huge, while a loss, especially now, […]

  • Two backs in the running for Cardinals

    Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams. Ryan Williams, Beanie Wells. Both running backs are expected to see the field for the Cardinals, but one of the two will likely take over as the “lead guy” at some point. According to SI.com, the battle for that job is one to watch this preseason. Arizona revamped the rest of […]
  • Gibson gave Upton permission to ‘have a blow out’

    Justin Upton was not pleased with the way home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor was calling the game Tuesday night. Having recorded just two hits in 16 at bats prior to the game, the right fielder was frustrated. And the umpire wasn’t helping. “C.B. kind of eye-walked him all the way out to the outfield, and […]
  • The time was right for the Diamondbacks, Goldschmidt

    It was time for Paul Goldschmidt to become a Diamondback. After tearing up the Double-A level there was really nothing left for the man to prove in the minor leagues. “Goldschmidt has crazy raw power and a pretty good idea of the strike zone,” ESPN MLB insider Keith Law said. “What he lacks is…he doesn’t […]
  • ESPN MLB insider: Give Upton time

    Sometimes we forget the fact that Justin Upton is just 23. Already a veteran of four Major League seasons, Upton’s tenure with the Diamondbacks is surpassed only by Miguel Montero and Chris Young. “We get thrown off by the rare position player who gets to the big leagues before his 20th birthday because then they’re […]
  • Buffalo Bills’ Lee Evans talks about Arizona Cardinals rumors

    If a halfway decent wide receiver becomes available it’s likely the Arizona Cardinals will be connected to him by some rumor or source. It’s just a byproduct of losing your No. 2 receiver in the whirlwind that has been NFL free agency and not finding a proven replacement. The latest receiver’s name to be associated […]

  • NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi not sold on Kevin Kolb

    Most fans in Arizona are excited by the thought of Kevin Kolb lining up under center for the Cardinals this season. Many of those same people think the new quarterback will lead their team back to the top of the NFC West. Local fans are buying into the hype but many national media members are […]
  • Don’t overreact about Jason Marquis’ first two starts

    If Jason Marquis keeps it up he may earn himself the nickname ‘two face’. That’s because he’s been a drastically different pitcher than he was in Washington before the Arizona Diamondbacks acquired him. Prior to being dealt to the desert at the trade deadline Marquis had put up stellar numbers. He had an 8-5 record […]
  • Receivers are important to Kevin Kolb’s development

    The focus for most of the Cardinals offseason and training camp has been on the quarterback position and just how much Kevin Kolb can improve it. With that said, it may be the wide receivers who play the most important part in ensuring the signal caller’s success or failure. Larry Fitzgerald agrees and thinks it’s […]
