Bombers getting better


Feb. 16, 2004 | 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...

New York Yankees -- The Yankees traded for Alex Rodriguez ... what a lineup! Are you serious, having A-Rod and Derek Jeter on the same side of the infield! Talk about breaking the bank, George Steinbrenner doesn't want to be undone by the Boston Red Sox.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. --Junior won the Daytona 500 six years to the day after his dad won it. What a great finish between Earnhardt Jr. and Tony Stewart!

John Daly -- Daly won his first PGA title since capturing the British Open in 1995. Daly hit a great shot out of a bunker on the first playoff hole and ended up with the win over Chris Riley and Luke Donald at the Buick Invitational.

Memphis basketball -- John Calipari's Tigers have a nine-game win streak going, including a blowout Saturday at Marquette.

Notre Dame hoops -- The Fighting Irish scored big wins over Connecticut and Seton Hall last week.

Mike Tyson -- Mike Tyson now has under $6,000 in assets after making over $200 million in earnings …what happened to all the cash, Iron Mike? Give me a break!

U.S. Soccer -- The American soccer team failed to qualify for the Olympics, losing 4-0 to Mexico.

Pittsburgh Penguins -- The Pens have now lost 14 straight games.

Detroit Pistons -- Larry Brown's team ended the first half of the season on a five-game losing streak.
