Messersmith Doesn't Look Like a Million Dollars; Drops 3-0 Decision By the Associated Press Andy Messersmith is still out there pitching — but doesn't look like a million dollars yet. "I'm very disappointed at the way things are going for me," says the high-priced right-hander. "I'm not putting the ball where I want to. The point of this game is to win. What good is it if you don't win?" So far, Messersmith hasn't repaid the Atlanta Braves a fraction of his million-dollar !SiK^si^iii!siKiim!iifmmx^sfi^-ximsss^s^s^mssssimK«sii^^^^l^smmm!lllim Major League Leaders By The Associated Press American League BATTING (35 at bats)-Pi- niella, NY, .432; Horton, Del, .391; Randolph NY, .389; B.Bell, Cle, .386; Chambliss, NY, .358.
