The reason probably is that he doesn't need to make a goad case for himself and his club. He proved last year he was not exaggerating his prospects.

The prospects arc that the Boston Red Soxfchi- cago White Sox and St. .Louis Browns will h ave a party of their own In the second flight. Senators Out to Win. The pennant bee is huzzing- busiest, perhaps, among- the Washington Senators, whose drive to second place under Walter Johnson last season furnished a sensational stir- pnse. A superlative pitching staff and brilliant defense, plus the all- around play of Shortstop Joe Cro- mn, features the senatorial threat. Cleveland, stressing- a stronger attack, also banks on the work of a fine pitching staff headed by Wesley Ferrell but has a hole to plug at third base, vacated by Joe Sevvoll Sewell, oddly enough, may be the solution to the Yankees' infield problem, bavins' shown every intention of staging- a come-back with the New Yorkers. If so , the war- clubs of Ruth, Gehrlg-, Lazzeri Combs and others will contribute to a lot of havoc in the forthcoming scramble. 6 Tigers Depend on Outfield. Detroit's chances seem to depend ipon the ability of outfield newcomers to come thru with the necessary Hatting punch, something the Timers rarely have lacked over a Ion" stretch of time. D The Red Sox still have a fjno iitclung staff, with MncFayden, Morris, Russell and Gaaton supported by several capable newcomers but the supply of basehits is not ilrely to be adequate.
