THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE : : Bucks Clinch Title By United Press International By BILL MADDEN UPI Sports Writer One of these- days the. Baltimore Orioles really are going to trade Frank Robinson and then it/won't be a surprise to anyone. The latest Robinson trade rumor has the Orioles' super* star ticketed for the Chicago White Sox la the early spring for a package of player's that will include one of the two Chisox catchers — Duane Jose. phson or Ed Herrmann. "So what else is new?" said Harry D alto n, Baltimore's director of player personnel. "Last year at this time they had us ' sending' Frank to California for Andy Messersmith." Nonetheless, Dalton did not discount the Robinson to Chicago story and, according to a published report, the Chisox will include rookie pitchers Don Eddy and Dick Moloney in addition to one of the two ; catchers. In the meantime, Robinson has yet to come to terms with, the Orioles and is reportedly seeking a two-year contract in addition to a raise, on his $125,000 pact of last year. ; Robinson isn't the only slugger holding out for a sizable salary Increase. The Cincinnati Reds have yet to sign catcher Johnny Bench and third baseman Tony Perez. Both Bench and Perez are holding out for contracts of over $100,000, but General Manager Bob Howsam has gone on record as saying that Pete Rose will be the only player on the club to receive $100,000. The Atlanta Braves are experiencing some difficulty in coming to terms with first baseman Orlando Cepeda and third baseman Clete Boyer. Cepeda is seeking a two year contract calling for $240,000.' Boyer, meanwhile is resisting a pay cut from his 1970 salary of $45,000. Among those players ending salary hassles Tuesday included first baseman Mike Epstein and relief pitcher Darold Knowles of the Washington senators. Epstein settled for approximately $40,000 while Knowles, was given a $5,000 increase. The Senators still have not signed slugger Frank Howard, who received an estimated $120,000 a year ago. The Boston Red Sox have dispatched scout Ray ." Boone to Mexico in an effort to locate pitcher Vicente Romo, missing for five days while the Kansas City Royals signed shortstop Freddie Patek and pitcher Aurelio Monteagudo. Ron Barnes got 35 points to lead Fort Wayne Central to a 78-56 win over Dwenger in action in the Fort Wayne I tourney. Dwenger had whipped Central, the defending champ, by 30 points during the regular season. The Fort Wayne II tourney' game played Tuesday saw Fort Wayne Concordia trim Woodlan, 56-54. Mike Berning's bucket broke a 52-52 deadlock and Concordia added two free throws to ice the game. At LaVille, Bruce Daybuff hit 21 to lead Glenn to a 77-60 triumph over Argos. LaVille won the opener, 69-46 over North Liberty, Gary Mann won the nightcap at Gary, 62-60 over city foe Andrean. Terry Martin bit 22 points to lead the attack.
