  • Arizona State’s Pflugrad has huge game in win against Missouri

    When Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler needed to make a play he looked to wide receiver Aaron Pflugrad. At least that’s the way it seemed. Pflugrad caught eight of Osweiler’s 24 completions in the Sun Devils’ 37-30 overtime win against the Missouri Tigers. Saying those catches went for big gains would be putting it quite […]
  • Arizona State’s ‘Blackout’ brings out Fitzgerald, Nash

    Arizona State’s nationally televised Friday night matchup against Missouri had quite the star power — and we’re not talking about between the lines.

The first one was asked, and the QB’s teammates looked to him for answers. Less than an hour earlier they were looking at him to make plays. And he did, giving […]
  • Kirk Gibson will let Kennedy’s play speak for itself

    Once again Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson was asked about starter Ian Kennedy winning the Cy Young, and once again Gibson reiterated that he will not politic for his players. It’s not that Gibson doesn’t have their back; he’s loyal — probably to a fault — but he knows that their play will speak for itself. […]
  • Ian Kennedy should be a legitimate Cy Young candidate

    There are a lot of good pitchers in the National League this season. Need any proof? Take a look at the Cy Young Watch page. That said, the D-backs’ Ian Kennedy is certainly in the conversation, right along with Clayton Kershaw, Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee. At least, he should be. “He may not win […]
  • Kolb’s biggest mistake could be forcing the ball to Fitzgerald

    A quarterback’s job is to get the ball into his receiver’s hands, and if Larry Fitzgerald is one of them, well, all the better. One of the best wideouts in the NFL, Kevin Kolb would be wise to get him the ball. As long as he doesn’t force the ball to him, which is a […]
  • Success validates Diamondbacks, Gibson

    Kirk Gibson took over a team that, to put it mildly, wasn’t very good. The team was 31-48 when he replaced A.J. Hinch, and was well on its way to a 97-loss season. Needless to say things had to change, and Gibson made sure they did. “The thing that we’ve done well is to overcome […]
  • Adrian Wilson to play for Cardinals in season opener vs. Panthers

  • Ian Kennedy’s season up there with the best in Diamondbacks history

    When it comes to the history of Diamondbacks pitchers three names always come up: Randy Johnson, Curt Schilling and Brandon Webb. If he can continue his current pace, Ian Kennedy’s performance this season could propel him into the conversation. Granted this is just one season and the all-time significance of Kennedy would still be nowhere […]
  • Whisenhunt – Kolb relationship important, solid

  • D-backs’ success could work against them at the box office

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have a seven game lead over the San Francisco Giants. While that is great for them on the field, it may work against them at the Chase Field box office.

  • Patrick Peterson earns starting nod for Cardinals against Carolina Panthers

    It’s not that head coach Ken Whisenhunt is opposed to starting rookies, he’s just not one to throw a rookie out there until he’s ready. That means any rookie, even one selected with the fifth overall pick in the draft. “They’re going to earn it,” he said. And Patrick Peterson has earned it. After opening […]
