Rodriguez, purchased from Montreal, they tell me, will win the regular third base Job. He Is fast, a good hitter, and WR.S voted the top rookie in the International League last year. We expect Chico Carrasquel, our fine shortshop, to improve his 'clutch" hitting. He drove In 58 runs last year in 147 games. I know he's a better man in the pinches than he's shown. If all these things develop, I believe we will be in the race nil the wny. All of our starting pitchers are not yet certain. I feel sure, how? ever, that Billy Pierce, Saul Rogovin, Ken Holcombe, and Chuck Stobbs, will be the strength of the slat!. Harry Dorlsh and Luis Aloma fill be in the bullpen.
