HUES THE CLUB MS

PENNANT, SAYS M'GRAW
Doom's Men Have Shown the Most Consistent
Form of Any Team in League, Declares New
York Leader, and Whether or Not They Cap
ture Flag Depends on Their Ability to Hold
This Form or Something Fairly Close to It.

club Is the one
the Clients will
have to beat to
win the pennant
The Phllllee are
sticking out In
'front there with
and refusing to budge. They have
played pretty well around the cir
cuit and have stood up well against
all the clubs, much better than I ex-
IMCted th.T wnillrl ft haa Innw tiann
my opinion that the Phillies are
playing beyond their natural speed,
baa perhaps this Is the first season
tnry have hit their normal gait
under the efficient management of
Doola and Locke.
Tbe pitching :afr opened Ilk a
whirlwind, and It It going lib a whirl
wind yet. although I thought It had
been turned wide open in the aeries with
the Oiente In the last part of May. The
team haa shown the most consistent
form of any club In the league so far.
Whether or not they win the pennant
depend i upon whether they ean hold
this form or something fairly eloae to It.
Inclined to be erratic and Inflammatory
In the pinches. Roth O'Toole and Hen
drlx are especially susceptible to this.
and uncertain eatehlng does not tend to
steady them. Cltbson back of the bet
once more la going to be a great tonic
for the Pirates.
LITTLE HOPE FOR REM TO FIN
ISH A POOR FOURTH.
The only team of the Western four
which appeaed to be stronger than ll
looked when they flrst Invaded the East
was the Cincinnati club. The Reda are
going more like a hall team now, nut
they were left so far behind In the first
sprint that I hardly believe they have a
chance to climb very high thle season. I
do not see how they ean even reach the
top of the second division, and I cannot
picture them In the first dlvlelon by any
ehance. Boston, with Its steady plug
ging, is liable to beat them. But Hie
club has a good punch now and the
pitchers are working better, particularly
Buggs and Benton, who were regarded
as the two mainstays of the staff befo-e
the season opened, but who were greatly
off color In the early daye of the race.
Tinker will stop a lot of clubs which are
righting for the pennant between now
and September, and It would not sur
prise me a bit to see him upset some
flag pursuing team In the crisis.
