  • Analyst thinks Blaine Gabbert and Cam Newton not what Arizona Cardinals need

    If you think the Arizona Cardinals should draft Blaine Gabbert or Cam Newton with the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s NFL draft, you might want to think again. That is if you put much stock into what ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge has to say. Hoge isn’t exactly what you’d call a fan […]
  • Gibson says it’s Juan Miranda’s time

    For pretty much their entire existence the Arizona Diamondbacks have struggled to find a first baseman. From Travis Lee and Erubiel Durazo to Mark Grace, Greg Colbrunn, Tony Clark and Adam LaRoche, the D-backs have gone through 10 different opening day starters at first in 13 years. Number 11 is set to be Juan Miranda, […]
  • Looking at D-backs season through Magic 8 Ball

    In what can only be described as some bizarro-psychological experiment, two baseball fans have been chosen to watch and document every single baseball game this season. They’ll show up to work in a 15,000 square foot, glass enclosed “fancave” that will be visible to people walking by on the street in New York City. Inside […]
  • Allen still waiting for his chance to shine

    PHOENIX – When Brandon Allen was acquired from the Chicago White Sox in 2009, he was expected to one day become the Diamondbacks starting first baseman. He is still waiting for his chance. Arizona finalized its 25-man roster on Wednesday with Allen being one of the last cuts despite having a solid spring training. He […]
  • At 0-0 it’s time for Diamondbacks to go to work

    The theme was obvious. The Arizona Diamondbacks, following their final tune-up game before the regular season begins, tended to share a similar outlook when it came to judging what Spring Training meant in regards to their season’s prospects. “It doesn’t really matter what happened before [Wednesday], starting Friday it’s a clean slate and everybody’s very […]
  • D-backs shouldn’t expect much from Branyan

    PHOENIX – Maybe the best player for the Arizona Diamondbacks in spring training has been new addition Russell Branyan. One of the team’s biggest holes is first base, so naturally many have gotten excited that Branyan, after swinging such a hot bat, could be the answer at that position or at least used in a […]
  • Diamondbacks finalize 25-man roster

  • Desert Dog Blog: Relaxed schedule just what doctor ordered for Coyotes

    GLENDALE — OK, so I’m watching The Office the other night – which is one of my favorite sitcoms by the way – and at one point the character Ryan announces that “blogs are out” these days because everybody is texting instead. Say whaaaaaaaat? Are blogs really “out” already? I certainly hope not because I’m […]
  • Bullpen concerns D-backs heading into season opener

    After a dismal spring training, the Arizona Diamondbacks find themselves with more concerns than anticipated going into Opening Day. The biggest one hasn’t changed since last season. It’s still pitching. “My concern is the bullpen,” said D-backs color analyst Tom Candiotti on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf. “The back of the bullpen is what […]
  • Nine teams interested in trading for Steve Nash

    The Phoenix Suns front office may refer to Steve Nash as ‘the sun, the moon and the stars’ of the organization but that doesn’t mean a re-aligning of the heavens can’t take place this offseason. According to ESPN’s Chad Ford, there are at least nine different NBA teams interested in Nash and willing to make […]
  • ASU’s Bolden doesn’t regret not turning pro

    TEMPE, Ariz. – Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden could have cashed in on his impressive First-Team All-Pac-10 campaign last year and jumped to the NFL a year early. Instead, the lockdown defender decided against becoming yet another talented addition to an already stacked defensive back class and return to ASU for his senior year. But […]
  • Lon Babby admits Phoenix Suns ‘not good enough’

Now team president Lon Babby is admitting it as well. “We’re just not good enough at the end of the day,” Babby told Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf. “A lot of nights […]
  • Paulie Blog: We now know what the C in BCS stands for

    For years, we’ve known about the enormous economic impact that the Fiesta Bowl brings to the state of Arizona. Now we know about the huge economic impact that the Fiesta Bowl has brought to the bank account of CEO John Junker. And we’re not talking about the $600,000 annual salary afforded the longtime face of […]
  • Nash likes Rose for MVP but why not Nash?

    The Phoenix Suns Steve Nash knows a thing, OK make it two, about NBA MVPs. That’s why when he puts his support behind a candidate you have to listen. On Tuesday Nash told the Chicago Tribune that he realizes it’s a rarity that a point guard receives the honor but he’s supporting the Bulls’ Derrick […]
  • How long until the Arizona Diamondbacks are good?

    “That is not a good big league club.” That was the assessment of the Arizona Diamondbacks offered up by ESPN’s Keith Law as a guest on with Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf Monday. It’s a point of view that D-backs manager Kirk Gibson is aware exists and one that he doesn’t seem to completely […]
  • Cardinals’ Bidwill says team working to get to the top

    Even though the NFL is currently in the midst of a work stoppage, that doesn’t necessarily mean the Arizona Cardinals are going about the offseason any different. The process of going through free agency and putting players through offseason workouts isn’t happening but the plan of getting out of the NFC West cellar is being […]
  • Arizona Cardinals right in opposing bill to allow guns in venues

    Could guns be allowed in University of Phoenix Stadium, Chase Field, US Airways Center and Jobing.com Arena? If State Senate Bill 1201 passes they will be if the entities managing each venue don’t install metal detectors and gun lockers. It’s an issue that Global Spectrum, the company managing University of Phoenix Stadium, told the Phoenix […]
  • D-backs pitching still a huge question mark

    The Diamondbacks have officially settled on their pitching rotation for this season, but settled is completely relative to a group that underwhelmed during spring training.

  • Dan Majerle is still a Valley favorite

    Imagine that you were hired for a new job right out of college and when they introduced you to the staff and the company’s customers you were received with a loud, intimidating and large amount of boos. Would you take it in stride and prove them all wrong or let it effect your performance to […]
