John Gambadoro Columns

  • Bottom line: Upton's gotta get going
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | May 10, 2012 10:07 am
    The time has come. No more excuses. Justin Upton has to put this Arizona Diamondbacks team on his back and carry them. He may be only 24-years-old, but he has played in the major leagues since 2007,...
  • Cardinals had a solid draft
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | April 30, 2012 12:32 pm
    It's hard not to like what the Cardinals did in the NFL draft. Michael Floyd was a need and a necessity as the Cardinals have struggled with finding a #2 receiver ever since they decided not to...
  • Gentry deserves praise...and an extension
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | April 17, 2012 6:47 am
    There are five games left in the regular season and I have no idea whether the Phoenix Suns will make the playoffs or not. But I do know this: Alvin Gentry deserves a contract extension regardless...
  • Lisa Love firing should come as no surprise
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | March 28, 2012 10:00 am
    The Lisa Love firing should come as no surprise to anyone associated with Arizona State University or anyone who is a fan of the maroon and gold. In her seven years as the Athletic Director, Love...
  • Suns made right decision on Amar'e Stoudemire
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | March 28, 2012 7:40 am
    At the time, it was a questionable move. Letting a star player go in his prime. But now almost two years removed from letting Amar'e Stoudemire walk and sign a maximum 5- year deal worth $100 million...
  • Arizona Cardinals should look at more than Peyton Manning
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | March 07, 2012 12:32 pm
    If the Arizona Cardinals are truly interested in Peyton Manning, aren't they admitting that they are not settled at the quarterback spot? And if they aren't, why stop at Manning? Look, I understand...
  • The Ryan Braun ordeal casts doubt on baseball...again
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | February 24, 2012 2:01 pm
    The Ryan Braun story is top news and rightfully so. There are many who are happy that Braun won his appeal and many who aren't. To me the main story has little to do with the decision by the arbitrator,...
  • Many factors contribute to popularity of NFL
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | February 07, 2012 8:27 am
    So, 111 million people watched the Super Bowl. That's not a surprise when you realize the popularity of the National Football League. It has long been debated as to why the NFL reigns supreme...
  • Suns need to part ways with Robin Lopez
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | January 25, 2012 11:58 am
    It is time for the Phoenix Suns to recognize that Robin Lopez will never amount to anything more than a below- average backup center. And once they do that they need to find a team that is willing to...
  • Trading Steve Nash won't be easy for Suns
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | January 18, 2012 8:36 am
    The most important date on the calendar this season for the Phoenix Suns is March 15th, and it has nothing to do with a date in L.A. against Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and the Clippers that night. No,...
  • It's time for change at ASU
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | November 13, 2011 8:16 am
    It's a good thing that Arizona State Athletic Director Lisa Love didn't give head football coach Dennis Erickson a contract extension after that big 43- 22 win over USC in the fourth game of the season...
  • No reason why Diamondbacks can't win Game 5
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | October 06, 2011 11:06 am
    There is no reason to think that the Arizona Diamondbacks can't pull off on Friday what has never been done before since baseball switched to the current playoff format in 1995: winning the NLDS after...
  • Cardinals should admit their mistake and cut Chester Taylor
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 27, 2011 12:03 pm
    Sometimes you need to cut your losses while you can. Admit your mistake and move on. Such is the case for the Arizona Cardinals and running back Chester Taylor. It was a mistake from the day they...
  • Let the offense save the defense
    John Gambadoro/Arizona Sports | September 20, 2011 8:13 am
    You can make the argument that the best defense is a good offense, and in the case of the Arizona Cardinals you would be right. The Cardinals defense through two games has been statistically one of...
  • Finally, college football returns
    John Gambadoro/ | September 05, 2011 10:47 am
    It was nice after an offseason of high-profile scandals and conference realignments to finally get to some Saturday football. While Miami and Ohio State played shorthanded this week due to suspensions...
  • Arizona Diamondbacks must rely on their veterans
    John Gambadoro/ | August 23, 2011 7:58 am
  • D-backs trade for Hernandez has been huge success
    John Gambadoro/ | August 12, 2011 7:41 am
    No general manager can hit on all of his trades and free agent signings. They all make mistakes. And Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers is no exception. He swung and missed quite a few times this year....
  • Gambo and Ash: They say all good things must come to an end
    John Gambadoro/ | August 01, 2011 7:10 am
    They say all good things must come to an end. And such is the case for the Gambo and Ash show. After 12 years of hosting the main afternoon drive sports show here in Phoenix, the show is no longer....
  • D-backs should favor prospects over pitching
    John Gambadoro/ | July 14, 2011 8:37 pm
    For the first time in years the Arizona Diamondbacks will be buyers, not sellers, at the trade deadline. But let the buyer beware in this case, because while the Diamondbacks are clearly in contention in the National League West, they are by no means a lock to make the postseason. Arizona has a stocked minor league system with a number of quality young players destined to be a part of their bright future. While many fans may say the future is now, the D-backs still have to be careful not to make a bad trade, a trade that see's them swap a young star for a rent-a-player. One such player is the Padres Heath Bell.
  • Pietrus cares more about money than championships
    John Gambadoro/ | July 08, 2011 7:11 am
    I'm frankly getting tired of all these athletes lying to us, playing us like we are fools. The latest is Suns swingman Mickael Pietrus, who in dissing the Phoenix Suns to a French newspaper saying...
