  • Many failures led to wrong call in Diamondbacks-Giants game
    Doug Franz | April 02, 2014 10:50 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 10:47 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 10:04 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 10:49 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 9:55 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 10:18 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 9:53 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...
  • Join the Doug & Wolf Bracket Beatdown
    Doug Franz | March 17, 2014 8:36 pm
    If you want to compare your bracket to Wolf, me and other listeners click here. After you...
  • Not bubbling with intensity
    Doug Franz | March 14, 2014 9:41 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 11:02 am
    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:...
  • What do you want to be, Eric Bledsoe?
    Doug Franz | March 11, 2014 11:13 am
    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 7:00 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 9:18 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...
  • Thanks, John
    Doug Franz | March 05, 2014 11:52 am
    The worst. Obviously, shows that those who deal with loss are the toughest. The job leaves me completely empty when I'm on the air for shows that happen during 9/11 or a massive school shooting or...
  • Final stretch for Phoenix Suns
    Doug Franz | March 04, 2014 12:30 pm
    Here we go! Tuesday night begins the final exams for the Phoenix Suns season. Clippers...Thunder...Warriors...Clippers. The Suns still have stretches of five of six on the road and a separate...
  • March is madness
    Doug Franz | February 28, 2014 9:43 am
    For us regular people, weekends are a gift. We are being given a huge gift this weekend. Whether it's near the end, the pressure is up or it's just the beginning, this is a huge weekend in Arizona. SUNS Must...
  • Diamondbacks should plunk Puig
    Doug Franz | February 26, 2014 10:03 am
    Game time is coming soon. Diamondbacks and Dodgers. It's time for the Dodgers to pay their debt. Plunk Puig! I'm not advocating violence. There's no way any pitcher should ever go after someone's...
  • The offseason has begun for the Phoenix Suns
    Doug Franz | February 25, 2014 11:49 am
    The offseason has begun for the Phoenix Suns. Obviously, no one wants to hear this. We want to talk playoffs. We want to talk about home court advantage. We want to talk about the Suns being on...
  • The Suns must get Miles ahead
    Doug Franz | February 21, 2014 12:37 pm
    The Suns did the right thing: nothing. They didn't give up their envious cap space, so now they can match any deal another team offers Eric Bledsoe. They didn't give up any future draft picks from...
  • Me and my remote
    Doug Franz | February 20, 2014 7:45 am
    Observations from the five basketball games I watched Wednesday, February 19. Suns beat Boston 100-94 Good teams find a way to win when they don't play well. In back-to-back games, the...
