(UP) — Despite all the booming prosperity at Yankee stadium, there was every indu-iUion today that bi&, blustery Larry..MacPhai! considers his baseball days numbered. MacFhail was quite jubilant yesterday as he revealed to a press conference: : 1. That he and his three partners •had rejected a $3,000,000 Wall-Street | offer for a half-interest in the Yankee football and baseball interests. 2. That Bucky Harris, snatched from the front office to boss the Yanks to the American League pennant this year, had agreed ,to manage the team again next season. Hilt at the same time MacPhail imparted those joyous tidings he laid reporters that he is "quite nn- xions to get out of baseball." Although MacPhuil regularly has been at odds with Baseball Com- misioner A. 'B. (Happy) Chandler 'during the past season, he indicated i that it was a desire for rest rather than any controversy, which made 1 him anxious to retire.

(UP) Pitching usually plays the jiiost j cTeveian'd hnjxjrtant part in Ihe outcome of a. World Series and the New York Yankees are going Into the forthcoming one with an edge over the hurling corps of the Brooklyn Dodgers. . The advantage, however. Is not' enough lo be conclusive. But in addilloji to having an edge in the ; statistics, .the Yankees also will have experience on Iheir side and thai, a lot of limes, is a vital factor. • , Neither manager Bucky Harris: of the New -York Yankees nor' pilot Burt Sholton of the Dodgers has a brilliant pitching staff. As; a matter of fact, baseball men j generally still arc wondering how I they won their league pennants • with such wobbly pitching. Pilch-' ing was. their problem all season; long, but neither professes to be' worried over Iheir World Series hurling. - , ', The over-all figures are decidedly j in New York's favor. Their hurlers have gone the route 73 limes and turned in 15 shutouts while the Brooklyn pitchers have turned in, only 4ti complete games, with 14 ' whitewash jobs. Those statistics prove only one thing and that is that there is a lot of strength in their bullpens. ' That there is. on both clubs, for seldom if ever have two learns .'tone into a Series with relief artists ; like the Yankees have in Joe Page ! and the Dodgers in Huge Casey. Page, who has won 14 and lost [ seven in 54 relief appearances figures to give the Brooks and their left-handed loaded batting array the most trouble of any Yankee flinger for the Dodgers haven't taken too kindly to the type of Southpaw slants Page will serve up. Casey, who has nine victories against four defeats in 4C trips from the bullpen, is the only member of .the Dodger staff with World Series experience. He has so much stuff that it cost Ihe Dodgers a chance to win Ihc 1941 scries against Ihe Yankees for one of his pitches, which would have retired the side and evened the series at 2-games all. got away from catcher •Ml'.ckcy Owen and New York went on to win. Before Page and Casey will bo called upon. Harris is expected to shoot. Allte Reynolds, Frank Slicn. old Bobo Newsom and big Floyd Sevens as his starters while Shotton counters with Ralph Blanca. little Vic Lombard!. Joe Hatten and either Hal Gregg or Hank Behr- nwui.
