Yanks, Sox heating up


Aug. 15, 2005 | 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

The Yankees swept four straight from the Texas Rangers. Now the Yanks come into Tampa Bay to face Lou Piniella and Co.

The Devil Rays swept the Indians at Jacobs Field three straight.

The Red Sox have won six in a row and got help from the weatherman. Boston was trailing yesterday when the rains came and washed the game out.

Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter now has 17 wins. Could he beat out Mr. Clemens for the NL Cy Young?

Vladimir Guerrero has been on fire with 25 RBI in his last 14 games. He homered in a win over Seattle yesterday as the Angels moved back into first place in the AL West.

Tony Stewart has won five of his last seven races on the Nextel Cup circuit.

Also of note, Chris Berman did a great job performing on stage with Huey Lewis and the News in Waterbury, Conn., on Sunday night! Boomer sang "Walking on a Thin Line"!

The Kansas City Royals have lost 15 straight. You have to feel for Buddy Bell.

The fan who jumped from the third deck onto the netting above the lower seats at Yankee Stadium last week. He should be thrown in jail for a while, as he could have killed people if he missed the netting.

The arbitrator who cut back Kenny Rogers' suspension to 13 games ... are you kidding?

The Texas Rangers have lost seven in a row, but those all came at Boston and at Yankee Stadium.

The Chicago Bears lost Rex Grossman to a broken ankle in a preseason game.

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.
