All Ihc Mahatma of Montague Street can obtain now i:; lor ^competent operatives who still have Ic^s under them, arms swinging at their sides :nd at least some measure of their f u t u r e still in front of them. Meyer of the Yankee chain, you sec, knows a ballplayer when he sees one, too. Like a lot of other baseball men, llankus Pankus Grccnborg can't understand the Corsairs' front office including .shortstop Cox and southpaw Roe in the swap with the Brooks that brought pitchers Gregg and Lombard! and the an- rienl and honorable outfielder. Dixie Walker. "Cox." says Grccnberg, ''can be ."s Rood a shorts-top or third base- he majors and hits the ball far-, her than Reese. "Cox's only shortcoming is that ie suspects he is ill a good deal of the time, bul a winning combination no doubt will knock all thought of that out of his head. "Roe has everything, can be as great as a club, makes him." Greenberg. who spent a highly profitable, although rather unpleasant, 1947 season in Pitls- butgh. accentuates a point many people overlook entirely in ap- piaising the value of players. "It's the club that counts and wins," emphasizes the old Tiger home-run manufacturer "All you have lo do to fully realize this is recall members of winning Yankee combinations of thc past who were shipped elsewhere--men like Myril Hoag and catcher Joe Glenn. And members of .second-division and even basement outfits who came to the Yankees to stick out like ah electric sign--a fellow like Nick Ellen, for example. "It's much easier for all hands to give it the old college try when they are winning. · · _ · "That's the reason winning clubs make their own breaks." It's good to-see the. Pittsburgh club on the right track at last under Bill Meyer. IJy CARL 'iA. United Press Sports Writer Nl^W YORK. Feb. 12.--U.R) Jackie Robinson, who. played,wj_ distinction as the first negro in organized baseball, signed a contract with thc Urooklyn Dodgeis for 1948 on the birthday of.Abra- , ham'Lincoln, the Great Emanci- ' pator. . ,, i ' Robinson. sii and sincere, is a direct descendant of people whom Lincoln freed from slavery, although , many fans familiar wjtn the inner-workings of the Dodger organization suggest that he anu his team mates slill are subject to a broad form of servitude under i boss man, Branch.
