It looks as though they might be back in business again. Mickey Mantle hit 19 homers and Roger Maris six, when the New York Yankees finished sixth in 1965.

He was coaching for the ; Yankees when they made him i manager and Ralph Honk moved to the front office after the 1963 season. He went 1-0 in his only pennant scramble as a manager, winning with a ball club that skidded to sixth the next year. He was fired before the collapse. But Johnny Keane, who had won a world championship with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1964. was caught in the middle as manager of a Yankee ball club that played like the Mets.

"I expect to play a lot of games this year," Mantle said. "I don't think I'll play in many day games after night games, or second games of doubleheaders. This won't give my legs enough time to rest. But I'm going to be in there a great deal. "I think Ilouk will keep me in winning." Ilouk, who replaced Johnny Keane last Saturday night in California, was happy with the) ^ut rebuilding outcome of the game, but " nfW ftl " ™'" s f especially satisfied with how little of the World Series spirit he has had In the past, Johnny Podres could be just what the man —Charlie Dressen <— ordered for the Detroit Tigers' pennant hopes.

Podres, then with the Brooklyn Dodgers, lost his first World Series but he has since then. He won two from the New York Yankees in the 1955 series, including a 2-0 encounter in M3 won four games "I haven't seen him pitch for shutout in the final game of the series, giving the Dodgers the championship. He won single games in 1959 and 1963.
