My club can hit equally as hard as that of McGraw, but in an abbreviated series, such as the world's series, calculations cannot be very dependable. My pla3'ers are more reliable aneld, and that will prove a big advantage in our favor. '·While Plank and Bender are not rated very high in the pitchers" records, they are as reliable a duo of hurlers as I have ever had. Both are at their b6st~in pinches, and in a short series I can recommend them to beat anything in sight. ·'But it must be remembered that Plank and Bender-are cold weather pitchers, andvthat is why I look to them to carry the Athletics through to another world's championship." Analyzing the foregoing, it is found that Mack makes the reservation 'that [f Plank and Bender are in their top form, this team had a good chance of victory. But should these veterans fail him--or should even one of them be unable to come up to the mark-Mack will be forced to call upon his youngs:ers and jeopardize his club's chances. :hef at the Eagle Hotel for the Past Eight Years.
