Tlie Yanks are not the cinches Ihc- old guard'is trying to make them out. Tlie National- Leneue race is ilefi- jiilely an omelet in which many chefs will have n finger. Many unexpected returns may come in early because the ball chilis are far (rora being In shape (o open the .season. Some of ih« alriletc-s, especially pllchm, won't te ready for a couple of weeks. The inclement weather has upset (he plans of many pilots.I n yesterday's exhibition games sonic of the managers had four and Jive pitchers in uclion In order lo give as .many (lingers as possible their final preps. High spots of the opening das- program will be ni Washington where the Hcd Sox bailie the Senators with President KoosevcH in attendance; at Philadelphia where the four-time champion Yankees will begin the quest of their fifth in a vow against the Athletics; and at Cincinnati where the Reds begin the defense of their National League title against the Cubs. As the sixteen clubs get ready to go to the post, here's the final call over: American League: .Yankees—2-1. Chnmp until bcnt- cn. Same club with more pressure on veterans Dickey, Ruffing, Gomez and Crosselli. Red Sox—0-2. Danger. Pitching and defense improved. Cest punch. Indians—8-1. No weakling. Infield patched up at second.

Hard lo figure. Pitching and defense good. Attack needs bolstering. . nns-t. Diyrkhorsc,., ^Loaded with its .out; might become' ip^rr- cd by Hubbell's comeback. '• Pirates— 10-1. Possible surprise. Hustle and punch may offset weak pitching and catching. Bees— 50-1. Pass this. Weak i outfield and second. Pitching on ly fair. Phillies— 100-1. Hopeless. plenty ot everything.
