  • Changing of the guard is underway with the Arizona Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | October 29, 2013 11:49 am
    This day was coming. It was inevitable. Leading up to the Falcons game, rookie sensation Andre Ellington had been limited with his touches in previous Cardinals games, but the clamor for him to get more...
  • Trading Marcin Gortat to Wizards is exactly what the Phoenix Suns needed to do
    John Gambadoro | October 25, 2013 4:30 pm
    The most exciting day for the Phoenix Suns over the next year will be June 26th -- the day of the 2014 NBA Draft. With the recent trade that sent Marcin Gortat, Shannon Brown, Kendall Marshall and...
  • Coyotes' Mike Ribeiro might be team's best free-agent signing ever
    John Gambadoro | October 23, 2013 4:58 pm
    The Phoenix Coyotes have tried and failed with free agents for many years. There was Owen Nolan, Tony Amonte, Brett Hull, Mike Ricci and Peter Nedved -- of which only Ricci made it to a second season...
  • Questioning how the Arizona Cardinals are using Larry Fitzgerald
    John Gambadoro | October 18, 2013 2:24 pm
    I was fascinated to listen to the NFL Network coverage after Thursday night's game and hear Kurt Warner talk about how the Cardinals are using Larry Fitzgerald more inside than outside and its causing...
  • Arizona Cardinals' QB Carson Palmer needs to lead team to wins
    John Gambadoro | October 15, 2013 9:57 am
    There is no denying that quarterback is the most important position on a football team. That is why Joe Flacco of the Ravens just got $120.6 million. It's why Tony Romo just got $108 million. It's why...
  • Christmas has come early -- Levi Brown is gone!
    John Gambadoro | October 02, 2013 5:21 pm
    It's a great day to be a Cardinals fan. Christmas has come early. No longer do you have to hear the referee saying "False Start, offense number 75", "Holding, offense number 75" or watch your quarterback...
  • Carson Palmer is nothing more than a stopgap QB
    John Gambadoro | October 01, 2013 12:56 pm
    We are only four games into the season, but by now all of you should have seen enough of Carson Palmer to realize that he is not the answer. He's just another in a long line of Cardinals stopgap quarterbacks....
  • For ASU, Stanford likely a 'close but no cigar'-type game
    John Gambadoro | September 19, 2013 8:29 am
    Stanford is a beast. They have been to three straight BCS games, are the defending Pac-12 and Rose Bowl Champs, have a record of 25-4 under head coach David Shaw and are becoming a factory for sending...
  • Johnny Football is unlikable, but he can sure play quarterback
    John Gambadoro | September 17, 2013 8:30 am
    Say what you want about Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Yes, he is a punk. Yes, he thinks he is above the law. Yes, his actions on and off the field make you hate him and root against him. But...
  • Sunday you saw the typical Carson Palmer, good and bad
    John Gambadoro | September 09, 2013 11:50 am
    It would and will be easy to bag on Levi Brown this week and all year. He is awful and everyone knows it. But instead of the obvious let's break down Carson Palmer. I've never been a big fan....
  • The Arizona Cardinals will win between six and nine games this season
    John Gambadoro | September 06, 2013 11:27 am
    The season begins Sunday with a new head coach, a new general manager, a new quarterback and new hope for the Arizona Cardinals. After a disappointing season which saw Arizona start 4-0 and then lose 11...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers has got two trades absolutely right
    John Gambadoro | August 28, 2013 9:55 am
    There have been quite a few moves this season that have backfired on Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers. See: Joe Thatcher, Tony Sipp, Heath Bell, Cody Ross, Jason Kubel (which began backfiring...
  • With Jonathan Cooper out, here are other players the Arizona Cardinals can't afford to lose
    John Gambadoro | August 27, 2013 9:41 am
    With all the injuries and sloppy play, it is hard to take many positives out of Cardinals' preseason game number three with the Chargers. Arizona clearly has some work to do to become a good football...
  • The Devil Went Down to L.A.
    John Gambadoro | August 15, 2013 8:14 am
    After watching the Dodgers win yet again, I am thoroughly convinced that Don Mattingly made a deal with the Devil. And I believe it went something like this: The Devil went down to Los Angeles He...
  • It's nice to focus on Tyrann Mathieu's football ability
    John Gambadoro | August 14, 2013 2:10 pm
    The great thing about Tyrann Mathieu is that we are finally talking about what he is doing on the field and not off of it. Since the talented but troubled former LSU star was selected by Arizona in...
  • Michael Beasley's time with the Phoenix Suns will be over soon
    John Gambadoro | August 08, 2013 12:46 pm
    The Phoenix Suns have until August 31 to release Michael Beasley, and it won't take that long. The troubled former number 2 overall pick has worn out his welcome in the Valley of the Sun, and will soon...
  • Ian Kennedy feels mixed emotions after trade from Arizona Diamondbacks
    John Gambadoro | July 31, 2013 2:25 pm
    I spent some time talking to new San Diego Padre Ian Kennedy Wednesday. He told me he was both "bummed" and "excited" about the news that he was traded. He was also thankful that Diamondbacks general...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks never had interest in Jake Peavy
    John Gambadoro | July 31, 2013 8:13 am
    First let's cut to the chase -- the Arizona Diamondbacks were never interested in Jake Peavy and they shouldn't have been. Not considering that they would have had to pay him some $20 million between now...
  • John Abraham is a great signing by the Arizona Cardinals
    John Gambadoro | July 26, 2013 10:39 am
    The Arizona Cardinals have flopped in signing aging veteran free agents in the past. See Alan Faneca, Joey Porter, Emmitt Smith, Edgerrin James. Sometimes you catch lightning in a bottle (Kurt Warner)...
  • Mariano Rivera's pending retirement stirs mixed emotions
    John Gambadoro | July 17, 2013 8:08 am
    I have so many mixed emotions when it comes to Mariano Rivera and his pending retirement. I'm a lifelong Yankee fan whose first nickname, even before Gambo, was 'Yankee' in the St. Gerard's Little League....
