But the absence of llcrnsby's bat will cost the Cubs a pennant this year. Bill Terry and Lou Gehrig are playing great games at lirst base for their respective New York teams, but before long their lau- lels will be threatened by a ycuns fellow- named Eddie Morgan who plays , for Cleveland. Even though Bill Terry Is one of the greatest first basemen that ever played. Lew Ponseca, who led the American League in batting last year. and whose injury this season gave Morgan the chance to prove his greatness, may. be Ihe b:g shot in a trade the Indians are said lo have in mind— with a team that has a good left-handed, pitcher. Harry Rice, traded to the Yankees in the deal for Hoyt, seems to have settled down since leaving wild and woolly Detroit for sedate Manhattan. There Is nothing final about that, however, as Harry knows all sorts of ways of becoming .unhitched. * • a This Shift Business \ Football umpires will not be bothered a great deal by the change in the shift rule requiring players to •|top a full second between moves. And they will not be forever looking at stop-watches either. Barry Wood is going to be one of the greatest football players in the east this year besides Albic Booth. And Carideo of Notre Dair.e will be Ail-American quarterback. once more. Wesley FerreU of Cleveland, pilching his second year in the major leagues, will lead all the pitchers in both leagues in the number of victories when the totals are added up the last of September. Bill Walker will stand the Athletics on Iheir ears in the first gam? of the world series in New York. Bui Bill may not get a chance to pitch against the Athletics until 1931.
