I hope . . . That Budda Baker remains the top vote-getter from fans among strong safeties for the NFC Pro Bowl team, which he was when the first counts were announced Monday. The fan vote counts one-third along with the same amount for players and coaches. It surely didn’t hurt when Baker was featured on Hard Knocks in episode…...

I hope … That people realize the “regression” in Kyler Murray everyone likes to talk about had actually started to reverse itself after the return of DeAndre Hopkins in Week 7. Shocking, huh? In three games before Murray missed the last two because of a hamstring injury, he compiled these numbers: New Orleans 20-for-29, 204 yards, one touchdown, no interceptions,...

Zac Gallen gets ready to deliver a pitch against the Milwaukee Brewers at Chase Field.

In some ways, Zac Gallen was everything the Diamondbacks could have hoped for in 2022. He bounced back from an injury-plagued 2021 season with a 12-4 with a 2.54 ERA, a National League-leading 0.91 WHIP and the lowest opponent batting average by a qualified starting pitcher in Diamondbacks history at .185. The man once viewed by scouts as a back-of-the-rotation...

Coyotes fans have come to expect alternate ledes from me in these mailbags. Today’s topic is covers of songs that equaled or surpassed the original. What led me down this path? The discovery that perhaps my favorite Amy Winehouse song is a cover, not an original. More on that in a second. Anybody who knows anything about music knows that...

I hope … That everyone remembers after Sunday’s game what was said before it. So much of the narrative, and deservedly so, will be centered around whether the Cardinals have any chance of preventing Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald from blowing up any chance the Cardinals have of playing consistent offense. That would be hard enough with Justin Pugh, Rodney...

The Colorado Avalanche, the Edmonton Oilers, the Toronto Maple Leafs and… the Arizona Coyotes. The first three teams are logical choices when you think of elite power-play units in the NHL. The last one? Not so much, yet 11 games into the season, that is exactly where the rebuilding Coyotes find themselves, ranked fifth in the NHL with 11 power-play...

Here are a few more Jae Crowder trades for the Phoenix Suns to consider.

Jae Crowder still hasn’t been traded. Despite his agreement with the Phoenix Suns to remain away from the team until they could navigate a trade, despite Phoenix’s 6-1 start to the season, and despite Crowder’s value as an experienced 3-and-D wing, Bossman still technically remains a member of the Suns. Last week, The Athletic’s Shams Charania listed the Milwaukee Bucks,...

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Daulton Varsho makes a catch at Chase Field.

Remember what it feels like to have a player snubbed in end-of-year awards, Diamondbacks fans? Memories of Paul Goldschmidt’s second-place finish in 2013 NL MVP voting may have rushed back for some on Tuesday, as outfielder Daulton Varsho fell short of winning his first career Gold Glove award. While unfortunate for fans, Varsho’s exclusion was somewhat unsurprising. Despite being a...
