It- was Di?jzy's way of saying that the 1931 world' series wi'.h the Detroit Tigers was a walk-In, a cake-walk, or a bree/,? for tlie St. Louts Cardinals. The elder Dean's opinion was shored by Ernie Orsatti, the Italian ball hawk, and thu other ftcd Buds "All i<- lyjvc to llic Tigers Is Wild Bill Haliahan." remarked Qrsaltl. "Here's one sc- ries in which the Denn brolher; will not have to "be worked out of turn."
