* • S NtiM) L On the Rebound Cardinals • - 3 » { 4 3 1 Move By Joe Mdtristey 1? Snorts E Whil sill St. Louis in first place for at teast three days it is m'j£painful duty to write approbate nice things about the Cardinals. After chastising the Redbirds unmercifully for their terrible start, it looks like I'm g<jing, to. have to eat a little crow. Actually, with the price of . meafcthe way it is, that might not tfe too bad of an idea. U'you want to be fair about the + "whole thing, you have to giv6" the Redbirds a lot of .credit for coming from a sorry S^record to a division-lead- inf 51-45 mark. 6"ut then who wants to be Kiev? days ago the Cardi- naksjook over first place by a v mere two percentage points and were on top for just a faw„ hours. This time the Redbirds are assured of at least three days on. top because of the All-Star break. It could last a little : longer, but not much. In my opinion, the Cardinals will drop. back soon but it - won't be the Cubs who replace them- at the top. In the end, tH&Pirates, who are just four off^ the pace, will pass both the Cubs and St. Louis. I 4on't like to be an I-told- you-so, but I will. I picked the Pirates to win the division and . go QII to take it all. 'Of course 1 also picked-the CuteH to finish second and the Cardials to wind up seventh in ST^S-team division. The latter' »-'was a tongue-in-cheek forecast with a more realistic evaluation putting the Redbirds- in fourth. &-readily admitted that the Ram 9 s Romps Bf Coke 14-1 In BR Play Turn's Sport Center had little trouble Tuesday night and romped by Coke 14-1 in Babe 'Rutfr'League play at H.

However, because of some untested rookies, an apparently shaky defensive lineup and an unproven bullpen, I felt that at best they were a year away. The way things stand now, the rookies are coming through, the defensive leaks have all but disappeared and the bullpen has been strong. The Cardinal fans who are making the most noise now were the hardest on the Redbirds when things were going fo badly in the first few weeks of the season. I tried to tell St. Louis fans at the time that the Cardinals were not that bad, theorizing that no team could be that bad. However, the fair-weather Cardinal fans would not agree at the time. Now they staunchly insist that they knew that the Cardinals would be on top all the time. I would like to say that this is just a slump for the Cubs and that they will be back on top in no time. However, on the basis of past performances I can't honestly make that forecast. They have set a pattern of folding in the second half of season and there is no reason to believe that this year will he any different. The tailspin of 1969 is the most famous of all, almost as famous as the economic crash of '29. Sam Andree, long-time Cub fan and former successful _ . American Legion coach, cites Kn/ip RffcGlllf'a a critical lack of team speed 11C8UIB and three individualists as the main problems. Andree, who lives in Joliet and sees all the weekend Cub home games, says that the individualists who are hurting the team are Fergie Jenkins, Billy Williams and Jose CardenaJ. Many may be wondering how Cardenal is hurting the ball club. He's leading the team in average with a .321 mark and in RBIs with 53. In addition he has a great arm and good speed. "He has all the tools of Willie Mays in his prime, but only uses them when he wants to," Sam said. "He's always going for the home run and never shortens his swing regardless of the situation." He cited a particular instance in the field when either Rick Monday or Glenn Beckert could have caught a POD fly easily. "Along comes ( Mr. Excitement' from rightfield and calls everybody off but can't make the play," Andree said. I'll agree that the Cubs lack team speed. I'll also go along with the "individualists" Sam talks about. But there's rr to it than that. Why is it the Cub weaknesses only affect the ball club in the second half of the season? tie League N*k*el AV&tti came orte step ckwef to tf* tit- League Wofld Series Tues- flight.
