Can they do II again? i 1020. those two accounted for -4-1 Ictorles. Can they maintain Hi:-! rent pace for a third straight year? i they do, of course, all be!s arc QT. nnd the Athletics appear to br n: But, Is It unreasonable to ex- •ect that one of these two m;n. scner or later, is going to have a •ad year, something that can r.p.p- .-en to the test of pitchers? Mack himself fears I!. At Fort Myers, he admitted that If any- hing should happen to either 3rove or Earnshaw, "it would be iust too bad." Each of three men .las to hftve a third great year, nr. I see it. for the A's to win the ilaz. You can have those three-way two- horse, parlays, if you like, but the ' fact is they are too hard to cash. Six of tlie Washington pitchers last year proved more effective than Earnshnw in point of earned run average, though Earnsbaw won more games. These six were. In order, Llska, Hadley, Crowder, Marberry, Jones and Brown. In the National League, to which most of the experts have aciiairci the habit of referring n.= "n ED?,! . minor league" since the s'.riusr of triumphs rolled lip by the Yankees an! Athletics in world scries of recent years, Brooklyn seems best. The reason, ns I see It. is bats. When those big sticks of O'DouI. Herman, Wright. Frederick anri BisEonettc start resounding, \vrn! Is a National League pitcher to do except go ocl and buy a hot do;? Last y»ar Herman hit .3D3: CTDGul hit .383; B&onette hit .335: . Frederick hit .334, nnd Wright hit .321; There are five men with a batting average, collectively speaking of .353. What hiltins! No other team in cither league has five men \vho can approach that mark for simon-pure s While it is true that Wright is" th"? only one o! Ihe five that ba!s right- handed, O'Doul and Herman arc lads who can socS left-hander?. \y. and with gusto. It will goort left- handers (such DS Hallahanl to E'.OI the resonant Robin clues. I rio P.D: think there arc enough good left- handers in the league to halt such sluggers. Brooklyn led the league for 70 claS-s last year, only to fall by the wayside when unfortunate injuries to Frederick and Bressler halte:! the march of the club. This year, not only has Brooklyn a great first team, composed of sluggers oJ the first w.-Uer, but tn reserve strength the Robins are far and nuray better than anything ebr: in the league.
