PETERSBURG, Fla. — W) — Stan Mufiiai, the highest paid player in baseball at $80,000 a year, thinks the St. Louis Cards have their best pennant chance since 1946. "A lot depends on our young I pitchers," he said. "You know about | Vinegar Bend Mizell. Everybody! raved about him last spring. It he doesn't go into service, he ought to help us. "We're hoping Joe Presko and Cloyd Boyer have shaken off their arm trouble to take a regular turn with Gerry Staley and Cliff Chambers. "The way I look at it, we didn't have Billy Johnson and Wally Westlake at the start last season. Still thought we did pretty good finish- Ing third." Musial is confident Eddie Stanky, his new manager, will help the club, not only as manager but player. 1 imagine Eddie will be playing," he said. "All that talk about where Red Schoendienst will play has been good for the fans. Keeps them talking about the Cardinals. But those problems that seem so big have a way of working themselves out." Musial prefers the outfield to first base but will play any place Stanky tells him. He has an idea Schoendienst probably could play first base as well as second or the outfield. 'Red's the best second baseman in baseball," he said. "But he's such a natural athlete he could play any place." How about Musial? "I feel great, right In my prime," he said. "I'm just turned 31 and figure I have at least five good productive years ahead." LITTLE SPORT v By Rouion Tapping (Continued from Page 6) decision to Floyd Morris here last Summer.
