April 9, 2007 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP
Zach Johnson, whose prior PGA Tour win was at the 2004 Bell South Classic, earned the green jacket as Masters champion…

The Braves are off to a great start at 5-1 after winning the last two games vs. the Mets.

The Toronto Raptors won their first regular-season division title.

STOCK DOWN

The Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies struggled out of the block, each going 1-5 in their first six games.

Barry Zito opened 0-2 with an 8.18 ERA in his first two games with his new team, the Giants.

The Big 12 lost Bob Huggins and Billy Gillispie from its coaching ranks…what a blow that is to the conference.

The New Jersey Devils fired coach Claude Julien after the team had 102 points. What did the guy have to do in the regular season?

Dick Vitale coached the Pistons and the University of Detroit before broadcasting ESPN's first college basketball game in December 1979. Send him a question for possible use on ESPNEWS.
