D-backs 2nd Half Review: At the All-Star break, we talked about the few intriguing stories left in the D-Backs season -
Will Dan Haren contend for a Cy Young? Nope. Will Chris Snyder play as well as his contract says he should? Nope. Will Brandon Webb pitch in September? Nope. Will Stephen Drew have another big 2nd half (.326 2nd half in 2008): Nope (.259 AVG). The only compelling story left in 2009 is Mark Reynolds’ chase of 50 HR and 30 SB. His current pace is 49 HR and 27 SB.
Good news, bad news at Cardinals practice:
The bad news: Cardinals’ 2nd round pick, Cody Brown, is out for the season with a dislocated left wrist. The good news: 1st round pick, Beanie Wells, participated in practice and “looked good” according to Coach Ken Whisenhunt. For Burnsy, though, Beanie Wells’ injury and history of injuries has him at DEFCON 3.
Sports 620 KTAR reporter, Johnny V, joined Dave to talk about the Cardinals first practice in Tempe including Cody Brown’s injury and how Beanie Wells looked in Cardinal Red.
UCLA football coach, Rick Neuheisel, joined Burnsy to talk about college football, his own UCLA Bruins, and Neuheisel’s last appearance on Sports 620 as a high school football player in 1977.
