  • Cardinals ill-prepared for quick off-season

    The Arizona Cardinals have plenty of holes to fill, but the lockout is likely to leave them — as well as every other team in the league — little time to work on filling them. The problem for the Cardinals, according to Sports 620 KTAR’s Mark Asher, is that they may not have the capabilities […]
  • Dennis Erickson under fire and deservedly so

    Is this the beginning of the end for Dennis Erickson at Arizona State? No, it’s not. The groundwork was laid when the coach followed up a 10-3 debut with seasons of five, four and six wins. That is not the way to get the job done, and if it weren’t for a bad economy there […]
  • Gibson: ‘We have to develop a bullpen’

    The Diamondbacks bullpen, a rock earlier in the season, has faltered as of late.

  • Would Ike Taylor be a better fit than DRC?

    If the Cardinals decide to trade Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for Kevin Kolb they would be filling one hole by creating another. Rodgers-Cromartie’s spot in the defensive secondary, though, could be filled by veteran Ike Taylor, a Pittsburgh Steelers free agent. “If he is truly wide open to any scenario, and you look at the fact that […]
  • All downhill from here for D-backs ‘pen

    For a while it seemed as though the disgrace better known as the Arizona Diamondbacks bullpen was a thing of the past. Joe Paterson, Micah Owings, David Heranndez and J.J. Putz were rolling, stifling hitters and locking down late leads. The month of June has brought a few hiccups, though, the most recent of which […]

  • Cardinals weighing free agent options

    While most roster talk involving the Arizona Cardinals centers around the quarterback position, they will need to figure a few things out once free agency begins.

  • Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt may be relocating

    Arizona Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt is going to be relocating soon. Don’t worry, he’s not being relieved of his duties with the team after a 5-11 season.

    The Phoenix Suns made Aaron Brooks a qualifying offer last Thursday, however they are not the only team interested in the point guard.

  • Diamondbacks in the middle of arms race

    Kevin Towers knows the Diamondbacks bullpen needs a little help, and he’s constantly searching for extra arms.

  • Arizona Cardinals could be interested in Ike Taylor

    The phrase ‘I like Ike’ isn’t just for 1952 Presidential campaigns anymore. It may be what the Arizona Cardinals are saying this offseason in reference to Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor. “Let’s say they deal [Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie] and bring in Kevin Kolb as their quarterback,” Sports 620 KTAR’s Ron Wolfley said on Doug and Wolf. […]
  • Hold on, Marc Bulger still wants to start

    The Cardinals QB search seemed to eliminate Marc Bulger, as the former Rams starter and Ravens backup seemed to have little interest in being a starting quarterback. However, a report by Len Pasquarelli seems to disagree with that assessment. But people close to the 34-year-old Bulger, whose father was an old high school classmate of […]
  • Former WR speaks out against Erickson

  • Arizona teams offering politicians free tickets

    Getting free tickets to a sporting event is always a nice thing. A lot of times someone will give you a few complimentary seats they can’t use in hopes that you’ll return the favor in the future. This quid pro quo relationship is usually beneficial to all parties involved. The Arizona Cardinals have apparently partaken […]
  • Hoping D-backs get their moment and don’t get trumped by NFL

    I don’t want to be picky here. I don’t want to be that guy who is dating a super model only to complain that she has man-hands. I don’t want to be that guy who gets a free fancy steak dinner, only to complain his baked potato wasn’t twice baked. Desperate to shed the NFL […]
