  • One win, six losses: A bad weekend for Arizona sports
    Doug Franz | April 14, 2014 12:21 pm
    One win. Six losses. With all due respect to the Arizona Rattlers and their huge win on the road at San Jose, the Suns, Coyotes and D-backs went 1-6 over the weekend. The only win was in the most...
  • Doug Franz's weekend wishes: Coyotes, Suns, Diamondbacks and soccer
    Doug Franz | April 11, 2014 10:21 am
    Here are my weekend wishes: LOSE TO THE BLUES The 2014 Phoenix Coyotes do not deserve to make the playoffs. Teams that go on six-game April losing streaks playing mostly listless hockey...
  • Pelicans game proved some key Suns are not ready
    Doug Franz | April 10, 2014 11:09 am
    The key to the 2014-2015 Suns is keeping Markieff Morris and Gerald Green on the team. The key to the 2014-2015 Suns is keeping Markieff Morris and Gerald Green on the bench. Whenever the Suns...
  • KT = Keep Towers
    Doug Franz | April 09, 2014 2:39 pm
    Openly question his decisions. They were average for two straight years. Rip him. They are the worst in the sport. Just don't fire him. Kevin Towers is the right man to be general manager...
  • Hey Adam Silver, do it for the game
    Doug Franz | April 08, 2014 2:03 pm
    I already love the new NBA commissioner more than the old one. David Stern saved the NBA just as much as Magic and Larry did. He can never be underestimated for what he did for the game. Unfortunately...
  • Phoenix Suns' P.J. Tucker is a good role model for us all
    Doug Franz | April 07, 2014 11:10 am
    Toronto. D-League. Israel. Ukraine. Israel again. Greece. Italy. Puerto Rico. Germany. Next up was supposed to be Russia. Those plans were derailed. Although the list of Lance Blanks accomplishments...
  • It's all about fathers
    Doug Franz | April 03, 2014 1:09 pm
    Without realizing it, the last week has been all about fathers. I have a great father. I hope you can say the same thing about yours. I just finished reading
  • Many failures led to wrong call in Diamondbacks-Giants game
    Doug Franz | April 02, 2014 11:50 am
    First and foremost, for the 877th time, referees and umpires do not lose games. The Giants lost Tuesday because they couldn't hold onto a four-run lead. Blame Matt Cain. Blame the Giants' offense because...
  • Panic over the Suns but not the Diamondbacks
    Doug Franz | April 01, 2014 11:47 am
    I was asked an excellent question on Twitter Tuesday during the show by @ontherun81: Which team is driving me more crazy, the D-backs or the Suns? It's far and away the Suns. I'm not panicked over...
  • Doug Franz's weekend wishes
    Doug Franz | March 28, 2014 11:04 am
    FINAL FOUR I'm looking for Florida, Michigan State and Louisville to advance to the Final Four (I picked Creighton so the UA game means nothing to me). It's simple. If that happens and MSU...
  • Being right makes it all wrong
    Doug Franz | March 27, 2014 11:49 am
    This is a much bigger mess than anyone wants to admit. The entire NCAA structure is in violation of some laws while it is trying to adhere to the standard of other laws. The model is so flawed that...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks: IMBIMBY
    Doug Franz | March 24, 2014 10:55 am
    Thanks. Now don't do it ever again. Do you mind if I gripe? Can I have three minutes of your time to separate my job as a reasonably knowledgeable baseball analyzer just to be frustrated fan? Major...
  • Arizona Cardinals signing Antonio Cromartie says plenty about Steve Keim
    Doug Franz | March 20, 2014 11:18 am
    All morning I'm thinking nothing will take me away from college basketball. This is my time to do nothing but do what I love. Baseball and college basketball. Then the Cardinals strike. Antonio Cromartie...
  • The keys for the Sun Devils to knock off the Longhorns
    Doug Franz | March 18, 2014 10:53 am
    Arizona State has no chance to beat Texas unless their energy dramatically changes. Texas is not a pretty team. Texas is not a finesse team. Texas is not a fast team. Texas finished 11-7 in the...

  • Not bubbling with intensity
    Doug Franz | March 14, 2014 10:41 am
    We saw very little desperation from our teams or people on the bubble over the last few days. That must change this weekend. ASU UP NEXT: Selection Sunday COMMENTARY:...
  • A little from Trevor Cahill would mean a lot for the D-backs
    Doug Franz | March 12, 2014 12:02 pm
    ARIZONA: Patrick Corbin, Wade Miley, Bronson Arroyo, Brandon McCarthy, Trevor Cahill (Archie Bradley). L.A.: Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hun-Jin Ryu, Dan Haren, Josh Beckett. SAN FRANCISCO:...

    Doug Franz | March 11, 2014 12:13 pm
    On Wednesday night, Eric Bledsoe steps on the fulcrum of his professional career and of the Suns season. It's really up to him where it goes. Eric Bledsoe returns from midseason surgery against the...
  • Darqueze, please
    Doug Franz | March 07, 2014 8:00 am
    It is impossible to use the English language to explain the importance of Saturday morning for the Arizona Cardinals. The next two important dates on the NFL calendar are Saturday and Tuesday. On...
  • Happy New Year!
    Doug Franz | March 06, 2014 10:18 pm
    The NFL calendar is a little hard to understand. I'll explain their calendar so it fits with our more established version. You can talk to potential dates for the New Year's Eve dance on December...
