  • Utility man Roberts taking day-by-day approach

    For someone who only has 14 home runs in his career, having two in one game is a big deal. Even after going yard twice Tuesday night against the Reds, Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Ryan Roberts hasn’t argued for more playing time or more opportunities. Instead, he’s just taking it one day at a time. “I […]
  • Putz remains outwardly calm despite chaos

    With a 5-4 lead heading into the bottom of the ninth in Cincinnati, Diamondbacks’ closer J.J. Putz drilled outfielder Jonny Gomes, the first batter he saw, making for an interesting start to an always high-pressure situation. Then, just like nothing ever happened, Putz proceeded to get two groundballs and a strikeout, stranding Gomes on second […]
  • Bettman: “the Goldwater Institute killed the deal”

    The Goldwater Institute and the City of Glendale will finally sit down and discuss the future of the Phoenix Coyotes. The question is, is it too little, too late? According to the Phoenix Business Journal, the two sides have agreed to meet this Thursday. They hope to try and iron out their differences on the […]
  • If this is adios for the Coyotes, I can hold my head high

    I'm one of the worst type of hockey fans. I heckle, jeer and insult the other team. I'm loud, rough and generally obnoxious. And it's part of hockey. Hockey fans are an in-your-face bunch during an unimportant game, a throwaway. The bigger the game, the bolder fans like myself get. If it's the playoffs, forget it. You might as well plug your ears and hope my voice is gone by the second intermission.
  • NFC West teams face similiar schedules

    PHOENIX – The NFL schedule was released on Tuesday and the teams in the NFC West have one thing in common. They all rank near the bottom of the league in strength of schedule of their opponents next season. It’s a reminder of how bad the division was last season as every team plays each […]
  • Schedule shows how far Cardinals have fallen

    PHOENIX – The NFL released the schedule for next season and with it the list of prime time games on Sunday and Monday night football where the league typically puts the best teams.

So it’s time to go Inside the Box for April 19, 2011: Diamondbacks 5, Reds 4 Usually Spring Training is the place where players make their case that they belong on a MLB roster.

  • Coyotes had a fair shot at success, right?

    The Phoenix Coyotes has qualified for the playoffs in under half of its seasons here and never advanced past the first round. Fan support has been dwindling, financial losses cause potential owners to shy away and few fan favorites are left. It reads like a script about how a hockey team leaves an empty arena for the promise of greener fields, until you ask a player how it feels.
  • Cardinals schedule is not too bad

    We finally know. If there is to be an NFL season, we now know exactly who the Cardinals will play, where they will play them and on what day. Starting at home against the Panthers and finishing at home against the Seahawks, the schedule is fairly balanced and, based on record, the easiest in the […]

  • Steve Nash’s NBA Playoffs rooting interests

    If you are a Phoenix Suns fan and your team is out of the playoffs who do you root for? There are many reasons why people may root — or secretly cheer — for teams other than their favorite team. A player from the Suns, like Steve Nash, has the possibility of having quite a […]
  • Larry Fitzgerald is a different kind of leader

    We haven’t yet really felt the impact of the NFL lockout. Sure, free agency has not happened. And yes, any statement about the 2011 season is followed with the qualifier “if there is a 2011 season.” But really, truly, we haven’t yet really missed anything. That will soon change. Once the draft is over we […]
  • WR A.J. Green is both intriguing and terrifying

    The mocks are coming fast and furious now. Who will the Arizona Cardinals select at number five? Your guess is as good as anybody’s. Literally. Blaine Gabbert, Von Miller, Patrick Peterson, Robert Quinn ; all names that have appeared in one mock draft or another over the last few weeks. But this one is new. […]
  • Mock draft has Cardinals taking Robert Quinn

    With the fifth pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals select…Robert Quinn. Based on his mock draft, ProFootballTalk’s Evan Silva, has the Cardinals taking the North Carolina linebacker. “Helps to fill the void created when Karlos Dansby left via free agency,” he said. “This is the process of rebuilding that team. “Robert Quinn […]
  • Offense will carry Cats if line can hold up

    If the Arizona Wildcats are to contend in the Pac-12 South next season it will be the offense that leads the way. Senior quarterback Nick Foles has a number of pass catchers to throw the ball to, including Juron Criner and Texas transfer Dan Buckner. However, their biggest question mark is up front, as the […]
  • Kolb trade could include future picks

    If the Cardinals are planning on swinging a deal for Kevin Kolb, they may be able to land the QB without giving up a pick in this year’s draft. That means the team could keep the number five pick. As a guest of Howard Eskin’s on WIP in Philadelphia, Reid said, among other things, that […]
  • Cardinals turning attention to defense?

    Much of the talk lately has been about the Cardinals perceived interest in Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert. Real or imagined, the idea of the Cards selecting a QB with the number five pick just more than a week from today is an exciting, if not a bit nerve-wracking, possibility. However, in true Helen Lovejoy fashion, […]

  • A series, maybe even a franchise, depend on Ilya Bryzgalov

    Heading into the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs everyone, to a man, knew the Phoenix Coyotes would go only as far as goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov could take them. At this rate, that will be to Game 4 of the first round. The Coyotes fell to the Red Wings Monday in what anyone could have labeled a […]
