MLB pays tribute to Jackie Robinson

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

April 16, 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
Major League Baseball for its tribute to Jackie Robinson on the 60th anniversary of his breaking the color barrier.

The Dallas Mavericks won its 66th game of the season by snapping the six-game winning streak of the San Antonio Spurs.

The Phoenix Suns have won five straight, including a 28-point win at Utah Saturday.

The New York Rangers are up 2-0 in their series after winning two straight at Atlanta. It is tough to win back-to-back road playoff games.

The Red Sox pounded the Angels 18-1 in their first two games of their series.

Tommy Amaker is a perfect fit at Harvard.

STOCK DOWN

Pacman Jones of the Titans was suspended for the entire 2007 NFL season pending an appeal.

Bonzi Wells of the Rockets is done for the season after walking away from the team before a game.

Reds third baseman Edwin Encarnacion was benched after he failed to run out a fly ball.

The Eagles paid Brian Westbrook his bonus twice. Someone in accounting screwed up.

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.
