"1 think we have a much better chance to knock off the Yankees this year. No, I don't think we can depend on their being weaker. Our pitching is considerably stronger."

Richards is well pleased with Johnny Grolh, his new center fielder who is hitting .308 at the. moment. He also is enthused about Ferris Faiivhitting .333 after his disastrous slump to .256 last year. "For the time being, Minnie Minoso is an outfielder," hp said, "We'll alternate Grady Hal'ton and Cass Michaels on third, depending on the pitching." With Groth in center and Minoso in right, Richards platoons left field, alternating Bob Boyd against righlies and Bill Wilson, a rookie, against southpaws.
