I field will be in good- shape because the football games have torn it up, but it should be in average condition if the rain stops." Neither manager thinks the rain will be an advantage to his club. Blue will now have six days rest while' Oriole starter Dave McNally will go with four days rest McNally said, "You never know what kind of stuff you're going to have until you go out to the mound." CONTINUES POLICY Blue, the sensation of the baseball season with a 24-8 record including two wins over the Orioles, continues his policy of refusing to discuss the game. But Williams promised, 'I know some people think he's been rude, but he'll be gracious after the game, win or lose.
