Webb is dealing

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

August 13, 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
• Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb has thrown 42 straight scoreless innings. Last year's NL Cy Young Award winner is making a run at this year's trophy. He also has three straight complete games.

• Another Arizona pitcher making news is Micah Owings. He went four-for-five with two home runs and six RBI on Saturday against the Braves.

• Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano agreed to terms on a deal worth over $91 million.

• Minnesota Twins pitcher Johan Santana had 17 strikeouts on Sunday.

• Chicago White Sox pitcher Bobby Jenks tied a major league record with 41 straight batters retired.

• Cleveland Browns QB and ex-Golden Domer Brady Quinn completed 13-of-20 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns vs. the Lions.

STOCK DOWN

• Michael Vick enough said.

• Former major leaguer Jose Offerman was arrested after charging the mound with a bat and striking a pitcher and catcher after being hit by a pitch in an Independent League game.

• The White Sox have been struggling, losing eight in a row.

• The Brewers are 3-10 in their last 13 games and out of first place in the NL Central.
