Normally I don't like snap judgments but I'm not sure how you keep Wiz after that performance.

I was thinking Graves too, though it probably doesn't matter since he's basically a puppet.

On the way to work I was listening to the post game on KTAR ( AKA the team mouth piece) Listening to the hosts deflect avoid and spin after fan's calls for change in the FO / coaching staff was hilarious.

If this is what it takes to have Graves canned, I'm OK with it.

As near as I can tell surfin' the 'net, as of 7:30 PM Ken is STILL the head coach. I can only guess Billy boy took a nap after his afternoon ice cream cone and no one has had the stomach to wake him up.

I don't feel sorry for Larry Fits though seeing he is just as much responsible for this mess. As I mentioned before, the only reason why we were able to re-sign him was because he put a gun to managements head to trade for Kolb or he was gone. It doesn't help either that we needed help on the O-line and management was dumb enough to listen to larry telling him to draft a WR in the 1st round instead.

Now more than likely the Fits is gone to add insult to injury in all of this.

Suns lost too. Can't say anything really about the Cardinals, I think you all know my position on them by now. Suns though, 7-15 and 10 1/2 games back of SA already.

Arizona sports are not doing so hot right now.

In ASU news though, first ever triple double was recorded the other night. 8-1 now on the season. Really have to see them against some tougher competition.

To be fair I'm not a fan of many things Arizona(mostly politics related but also sports related) but I'm still a Coyotes fan.

How funny would it be if the Cardinals started 4-0, talk of the town and in some cases of the "experts" on ESPN, only to turn around and be a top 5 draft pick in next years draft.

Nah I just find them all to be really crappy. Other than hockey I'm generally a New England sports fan, mostly focused on the Red Sox since back in 2001.

Yeah, it was a **** year. I don't follow them religiously though, maybe 20-30 games per summer, since I live in the Eurozone and timezones are a *****.

My brother though, he hasn't missed a single game for four years. He also went to Boston a year ago to watch them live. He is scary like that(even though I hope to do the same with the Coyotes in a year or two).

Also Dan Dickley is suggesting firing Coach Wiz is pointless.

I'd agree with him. What's the point this year? Why fire somebody and have the team still play like crap? Wait til the off season and clean the cupboard of QB's and get a line that can block.

Yes but others will argue that it was all Kurt that ran the show and not Coach Wiz.

Bauer traded to the Indians for SS prospect Gregorius. Looks like Upton is staying since most needs are now met.

Whyyyyyyyy?!?!?! Pitching is the backbone of a team. Bauer was going to be a stud, just needed more work in the minors. I also don't like getting rid of Albers, he did quite well in relief after we got him.

I honestly don't know these other players we are getting, but I'm scratching my head with this one. Why trade one of your best prospects?

I know they fell in love with Gregorius in the fall league and out of love with Bauer. Corbin, Skaggs, Hudson if one day healthy, Ian, and the kid drafted after Bauer could be a good rotation in the future. Proof that if Miggy does not like you then you are in trouble.

It's a pretty similar situation IMO to the Coyotes defensive prospect depth. Sure, in 3 years time the Coyotes could have 4 top pairing guys; no exaggeration. But that doesn't mean you go unloading them now because if the ones you keep fall apart you are SCREWED.

Knowing the Diamondbacks luck( and indeed Arizona teams in general) that's exactly what will happen. Skaggs I think is pretty safe, but Corbin is a long shot to be top of the rotation guy IMO. Miley could be the next Collmenter, Hudson may never be the same, and Kennedy is solid but probably not a top 2 guy. This team is way less deep in pitching if you really break it down. Especially after this move.

Gregorius might be a nice player, and I don't pretend to know everything about it. But trading a prospect with top end of the rotation talent for a defensive oriented SS prospect IS INSANE.

And even if they just had to trade Bauer, I can't believe this is all they could get.

Totally forgot about Miley...I dont know but I like the possibilities. One was bound to not make it over the others.

Oye...

Screw it, I don't care.

Jamison will close, the CBA will get hammered out, and I can go back to only caring about the Coyotes. Screw all the rest of the teams in the entire world.
