' collegian" who won tares straight
from the Cobs when the Athletics
and Chance's men clashed a few
years ago; who broke the hearts of
the Giants two years ago by defeat
ing them in 11 innings after Baker
made his memorable home run at
the Polo grounds, and who later in
the series suffered an injury from
which he has never fully recovered.
This point alone spells the doom
of the Athletics. Mack has Bender
and Plank in his veteran corps, but
Plank can never be depended upon
for more than one world's series
game, and Bender is not as good as
he was two years ago. He has gone
the way of the usual Indian who has
been successful before the public.
With the exception of these two
men, Mack' "has no pitcher, who has
been through the terrific strain of a
world's series, and in a short num
ber of games, say seven, he cannot
depend upon the batting of his team
to carry it to the front. It is baseball
history that the batting! of "big stars
has had but little effect in world's
series of the past.
McGraw will still have Mathew
son, who is going along as effective
ly as he did eight years ago. Matty
shines when the going is hard and
the crowds large and aggressive. His
bad luck of last year will, in all pf oh
ability, turn this season, for bad luck
in baseball, is like lightning; It sel
dom strikes twice in the Same place.
Mafquard, erratic arid temperamen
tal, showed to grand advantage un
der the strain last year, winning all
his games against the Boston Red
Sox, and I believe he will hold the
Athletic batters helpless this year.
' Mack's Then ar" e nfiver ' any too
strong against a left-hander of Maf-quard's-ability.
Tesreau is another
pitcher who has been through the
fife and will be better this year than
ever. Both he and Marquard are
rounding into shape and will be at
the zenith of their pitching power in
October. Demaree, another crack
twirler, will be available, to say
nothing 6f IBS bid: f enables", WiRae"
Behind the bat McGraw, with
Myers, has a big advantage. In the
infield the Athletics are1 in the lead,
but McGraw has a great bunch of in-
fielders, now that ghafer has been
made a regular. In the outfield the
Giants are far ahead, both in bat
ting, running and fielding.
I look to -see the series go into the
sixth game before the Giants win
the four necessary battles. It will
be the hardest fought series ever
known in the history of the sport, as
McGraw and Mack have clashed
twice before, breaking even, and this
time it will be tke rubber between
them. I would not miss it for a small
