Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Top Stories The Cardinals lost very little in free agency — unlessyou count Peyton Manning among those losses. They alsodidn’t add a lot and were strapped with financial issues,which really curtailed their ability to spend in freeagency. Campbell needed to be franchised and is now acornerstone player in this organization. Gay and Doucetwill have starter/depth value, but the Cardinals’offensive line still looks like one of the worst in all offootball. It would be surprising if Arizona wasn’tproactive in drafting offensive linemen this draft. The Arizona Cardinals went into the offseason with someholes to fill.A month into the process, not much has changed. While the Cardinals did a good job of retaining their ownguys, save Richard Marshall who left for Miami, there aresome who doubt adding William Gay and Adam Snyder to agroup that includes Early Doucet and Levi Brown has madethe Cardinals any better than they were at the end of lastseason.Matt Williamson, in an ESPNInsider story, is one such person, as he gave theCardinals a “D” when grading how every team has fared infree agency. True, it would seem the Cardinals are practically forcingthemselves to take an offensive lineman early in thismonth’s draft, possibly making them reach for a positionof need rather than taking the best available player.However, this is a team that finished last season winningseven of its final nine games, leading many to feel thereis plenty of talent already on the roster. And, if that’s the case, perhaps wholesale changes werenot necessary to begin with. 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more
