There was no warmth outside the walls of the First Baptist Church of Mesa on Thursday night. Winter won’t start for another two weeks, but the temperature — cold enough to cause the ears to tingle and burn a little — was a reminder the line between seasons is flexible.
It’s a place where cultures clash but also where sports and comic memorabilia collectors can converge.
When the Diamondbacks fired pitching coach Charles Nagy this week, there were a lot of nodding heads that met the move. If you’ve watched Arizona pitchers for the last two years it was pretty hard to argue.
I am writing about how Mark Scarp’s column “Dodgers’ postgame dip a lack of manners” (Tribune, Sept. 22) was insightful to me.
Last week’s column about the Los Angeles Dodgers taking a dip in the Arizona Diamondbacks swimming pool after beating the local team to win their division elicited some backlash from a reader who thought I should be dealing with weightier subjects.
“Everyday there is a post about some glorious way to make every man woman and child comfortable. And everyday it becomes increasingly clearer that the ultimate goal of most of you is to see the closing of all for profit businesses. The sole purpose of this can only be to funnel all money into the government for redistribution. Much like Stalinist Russia. When the 98% went from middle class and some poor to no middle class and all destitute.”
Curt Schilling famously downplayed the New York Yankees’ mystique and aura heading into the 2001 World Series.
I don’t usually write about sports, and you can all relax, because I’m not going to today.
Today is Charlotte Williams’ 91st birthday, and while she’ll get plenty of gifts and love from her family and friends, the best present could come when the results of the AARP’s New Faces of 50+ Real People Model Search are announced next week.
Vince Lombardi was quoted as saying “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing.”

The minute the words left general manager Kevin Towers lips — the Arizona Diamondbacks need to add a power-hitting outfielder next year — the second-guessers of the Justin Upton deal shifted into high gear.
Watch the Arizona Diamondbacks play the San Francisco Giants, then enjoy a post-game concert featuring Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers. The Tempe Rock band wrote and performed the theme song for Fox’s animated series “King of the Hill” and “D-backs Swing,” which has played following every Diamondbacks’ home win since 2007.
I can honestly say that six months ago, I thought (and wrote) the Diamondbacks would be pretty much where they find themselves today.
Yasiel Puig’s first 60 games as a major leaguer have been very exciting. He’s hitting .370, driven in 27 runs in his first 250 at-bats and the Los Angeles Dodgers have gone from under .500 to a team on pace for 100-plus wins since he arrived in early June.
After a hot start in the Arizona League, former Basha shortstop Jamie Westbrook has been promoted to advanced rookie league to play for the Missoula Osprey.
Full disclosure to start: I had the Los Angeles Dodgers dead and buried in June. Done. Over. Even with the phenomenon that is Yasiel Puig; even with Ian Kennedy poking the big, blue bear with a sharp stick at just the wrong moment with two of the most ill-timed beanballs in baseball history.
It’s a little simplistic at this point to call sports — the landscape filled with men playing or covering children’s games valued at millions upon millions of dollars, often at the exclusion of women — a boys club, but history has proven that label apt. Go back 46 years to the 1967 Boston Marathon, when Katharine Switzer’s race was nearly interrupted when race official Jock Semple tried to pull her off the course (her boyfriend literally body checked him out of the way).
Cindy Brunson spent years in Bristol, Ct., honing her craft as a sports broadcaster with ESPN. But Arizona already feels like home to Brunson, who moved to the desert this year with husband and fellow broadcaster Steve Berthiaume, the Arizona Diamondbacks' new play-by-play voice.
