For years thc Cardinals were kept solvent by their sales, supplying the entire National League and occasionally turning a profitable piece of business with an American League outfit. ORANCH RICKEY quickly trans- *-* Icrrcd thc balance of NL power to Brooklyn, now the fountain head of most player transactions in thc elder wheel. George M. Weiss, new general miacer of thc Yankees, has made the development of talent his mam objective since he joined thc organization in 1932. No other major league club was more representative of thc farm system than the winning Bombers of 1947. ICo other parent club brougnt up so many first-year men to stay. But George Weiss has also done very well in what he calls his sideline, thc disposal of surplus talent. Weiss has sold 100 or more members of the chain for sonie- thine like Sl.250,000. r.Tsr.or Uan^cHons have mush- roorrcd $100.000 deals. Pk.vcrs like Buddy Hassctt. ' .'-Sr.nv McCarthy.

First baseman McCarthy, outfielder Seeds, second baseman Mickey Witck and some more went to the Giants with sizable price tags attached. Tommy Holmes was sold to the Braves. It was the possession of replacements required by the San Francisco club that enabled the Yankees to land the matchless Joe DiMaggio. That and Ed Barrow's willingness to gamble on the great Di- Mag's injured knee. The deal bringing DiMaggio to Yankee Stadium was made between thc Newark and San Francisco clubs, with the man destined to put thc Yanks back on the winning track remaining on the Pacific coast for another year. Weiss gave the Seals the veteran shortstop Dr. Eddie Farrcll. Les Powers. Ted Norbert. Floyd Ncwkirk and Jim Densmorc and $25.000 for DiMaggio.
