10 21, .19S4 M»MB CKy Globe-Gaititc, Mucm City, la. Rdschi's Sale Designed to Discourage Complacency By JACK CUDDY NEW YORK (UP)--Vic Raschi's sale to the Cardinals, admittedly designed to discourage any possible complacency among the Yankees, represents _a course of action .that the Cleveland Indians have attempted unsuccessfully for the past three years. General Manager George Weiss, In sending Raschi to St. Louis, said he wanted to shake the complacency out'of the five-time champions and prove that none of them are indispensable. He was "putting a fire" under his players, in baseball parlance. The Indians, runnersup to the Yankees since 1951, also are occasional victims of compacency and General Manager Hank Greenbcrg has mentioned it several times. Like Weiss, Greenberg decided to do something about it. Wanted Courtney His first act was a determined campaign to acquire scrappy Clint Courtney from St. Louis. He has tried for the past two years but the defunct Browns always had asked too much'; "Jim Hegan the Indians' No. 1 catcher is an excellent receiver and a great handler of pitchers," explained one Brownie official last season, "but he's not the take- charge, hollering type. "Courtney is, and for that reason the Indians want him badly. They want him to light a fire under the rest of their players." Failing to land Courtney, the Indians went out this winter and acquired hustling Mickey Grasso from the Senators. Grasso, in addition to being an able receiver, is the kind of player who invariably exhorts his teammates to greater efforts. Yankee Manager Casey Stengel claims that "no one loafs on my club." Raschi, himself, is one of the hardest workers in baseball and his sale, as Weiss pointed out, was no reflection on his hustle. But Weiss wanted to stir the other players and it could be that he has lit a spark which will gain the Yankees a sixth .world championship. Complacency happens to the best of 'em and the worst of 'em in baseball. Virtually since the start of the g a m e , managers have searched for the proper method of lighting a so-called fire under their sometimes phlegmatic charges. Complacency and Dodgers It was the same complacency that had much to dp with the Dodgers blowing the 1951 National League pennant to the Giants after they had led by 13Vi games at one stage of the race. "Oh, our players woke up all right in September when the Giants started closing in on "em," said Brooklyn Manager Charlie Dressen, "but by that time it was too late." But complacency doesn't always strike at league leaders. Back in the 1930's when the then hapless Phillies were bouncing in and out of the cellar, Manager Jimmie Wilson walked into a hotel l o b ' b y and saw his athletes sprawled comfortably on several couches. "Look at "em," Wilson said to one of his coaches. "Why, I wouldn't be surprised if complacency costs this club seventh place!" Artz and Merritt Only Notch From Perfect Season THE STANDINGS W. L.
