When Considering Baseball Traders You Must Accord the Leader of Our Giants the Soubriquet of David Harum

HEHZOO HAS FIOUKEI)
IN FOUR BIG DEALS
The scene Is at a winter baseball
Meeting, nnd three club owners are Mn
with their heads together discussing the
high price of gasolene. A few seconds
later a rwarm of reporters flock around
the trio, and the tip Is sent abroad that
"Britten Is tolng to trad Whoila to
Hempitsad for Whatsat and Hermans
In turn will send Atahlm to Drltton In
xchange for an option on Dontchemo."
The veteran reporter may sit bnck and
arr.lle, saying pessimistically, "Leave
them hun around. Nothing aver hap
pens In baseball any more."
But things do happen In baseball, and
Undoubtedly always will. Ona neve aan
tall when and where and how a base
ball trade will start, but start they do.
Magnates may talk of gasolene, and tell
their tale of woe, "That they are down
to their last three earn." A brother mag
nate may say, "Well, that's pretty bad.
ut you've a pitcher that eats up llu.uuo
of your annual receipt In salary that
a change In climate mny help." "That's
so," replies the magnate who Is down tn
his third car. "And th.it remind mo,
my manager told mr If w hiul had an
outfielder like Jim I'ruln Inst season we I
could have won the vuiinaru mid 1 might
have stood a chance of making a little
money on my Investment." And before
you knew It a deal wan on.

ona Instance we can recall, however,
where a deal by McOraw was blocked at
headquartere. Mac wanted to buy Ed
Konatohy for 110,000 from Dreytuas
during his drive for the pennant In 1911,
but Hempstead declined to Invest such a

Trades Ava ybaoa.
Trades are the boogey-boos for nil
(Vara figuring on championship teams,
or ttsnnant contenders, as well as tossers
to New York, Chicago and Boston. On
the other hand, players operating In such
towns as Cincinnati, Bt. Louis and be
fore) the uplift In Washington and Cleve
land lived from day to day in the hope
f being traded from their surroundings.
Can you Imagine the Joy of players
kike Fromme and McLean when traded
to the Ulants three years ago, Just as
they were about to cut a third world's
series melon, and the ruffled feelings of
Slayers like Ames nnd Devon whin
anded their passports to Cincinnati?
A New York player once told me trades
wars the bane of his existence. "I love
to play baseball and would like to play
It till I am 70 years old were it nut for
tha trades," hs aald. "A fellow may be
going fine, hut the boss may see some

will trade his whole club tn get him. Hut
X guess that Is all part of tns same, and
We should know It when we decldo to
snaks baseball our profession."
XoGraYW Great Trader,
Wo know of no more prollrlo trdr
Cnan John McOraw, and a history of the
Olanta during the McOraw regime will
how that John Joseph Ih the world's
hnmplonshlp trader for trades made, If
not for David Harum sagacity How
over, McOraw Is a ona season trader.
Ha will make any deal to win a p.innait.
Than the next year he will make an
other. With John tho winning of a pen
nant Justifies any deal, even though It
be necessary to sacrifice brilliant young
prospects. As "Mac" has won five pen
imnts with the Ulants and has finished
tinder second but thrice In his New York
career his system brings results. Hut
McOraw needs the coffers of the Na
tional Exhibition Company to back his
erstem. Mao's deals will be touched on
If McOraw Is the world's champion
trader, Charley Herxog holds the cham
pionship for being traded. His career
Blnce reporting to the Olants In 190! Is
unique In the history of baseball. In
eight years hs has figured tn four Giant
trades. Involving eleven players, and Is

Herzog swap are the climax of McOraw's
deals. He says the latest Herzog deal
Is tho biggest he has ever made.
When Clark Orlmtli was manager of
the Yankees they used to accuse him of
nulling more gold brick deals than nny
other manager In the game, but perhaps
firlff illdn t desnrve all the unkind
things uhlrh nt times were said about
him. His favorite diversions were trades
with the Browns. Griff originally hud
Harry Howell nnd SI. Louis Jack Powell,
and consented to swiip the two, but a

Orentett "Hone" Peal.
Tho greatest "bone" deal In tho his
tory of baseball was made In 1901,
when Cincinnati traded Mulhewson to
New York for Amos Itiislo, who never
pitched n ball for tho Reds. Matty had
been tried out by the Olants In 1900. but
they let him drift back to Norfolk and
Cincinnati drafted hltn.
Tho century began with soma of the
most momentous deals In the history
of baseball. In 1899 the National League
consisted of twelve clubs, but before tho
season of 1900 opened four clubs Bal
timore, Washington, Louisville and
Cleveland were bought out, their best
players being purchased by several of
the remaining club members. Before
the reduction of the circuit took place

Louisville club whereby It got fourteen
players In exchange for five player and
