As though the fans did not give him a. sufficient advantage in electing Dizzy Dean, Hubbell, Mungo, and Wanickc, Manager Orimm made it certain that, there would be no shoitage of pitching effectiveness by adding Hid righl- liandcr who came to Die rescue of lib Chicapo Cubs, Curtis Davis. While the Americans' chucking corps sounds Impressive, it does not nt Hits time compare with the low 'em down boys named to churn for the older wheel. Bob Grove is lo open for the junior leaguers against Dean. Lon- liconmg lefty came back like a bad check in 1935 and launched Ihc current campaign auspiciously, but has been liltle more limn a."big name recently. * • * Amcilran League Pitchers Just Biff Names .Vcrnon Gome?, did not permit the Nationals to become frisky in Cleveland a year ago, : and Mel Tlatdci was equally efficient when hp stepped In for the last three rounds. But Gomez, who started all tliree pievious .all-star engagements, hasn't had too much luck this reason, cither in the sunlight or moonlight, what with the truant offficers trailing him and one thing or another. Harder hasn't been nearly as handy with the .handcuffs as he has In the past. Schoolboy Rowe's arm has been a mystery running to extremes. .While. 1 .Monte Pearson already lias won more games for the Yankees than he bagged for the Indians during the entire 1935 season, the Caltfoinian lemalns a very definite lisk In an Important assignment.

The chances are that McCarthy will employ Bill Dickey for no more than, three innings. Inasmuch as the tall Yankee receiver is so susceptible to Injury. McCarthy, acting for the incapacitated Mickey Cochrane, drafted Rick Ferrel! to work with Grove, and also has Roily Hcmsley, who took care of the complete chore a year ago, but who this season has. had his old trouble with discipline, i j The Nationals require this superiority in pitching and catching, for their team batting average .307 against .334 for the Americans.
