D-backs’ Slow Start, NFL Players Opting Out, ASU’s Antonio Pierce, NFL Network’s Michael Fabiano

Arizona Sports News online

The Diamondbacks have been a mess since returning to the diamond in southern California. Brad wonders where to start: poor pitching, sloppy fundamentals, cold bats? It’s still early but the season will be over sooner than later so the time is now for Torey Lovullo’s team. NFL camps are opening but a number of players are opting out due to COVID concerns. This will be an interesting development to follow. Brad caught up with ASU Associate Head Coach/Co-Def. Coordinator Antonio Pierce (7:44 on podcast) via Zoom to talk about his internship with Howard Stern, helping turn ASU into a national brand, the model of student-athletes the Sun Devils are recruiting, as well as how he views in-state players. Plus, NFL Network Senior Fantasy Analyst Michael Fabiano (31:07 on podcast) getting you ready for your upcoming drafts.
