I like the Giants as a smooth ma
chine, not as a powerful one. They
are not as likely to come up any old

present New York team has LOST
two world's series one to the Ath
letics and one to the Red Sox while
,the present Philadelphia team has
WON two one from the Cubs and
one from the Giants.

lost a world series, and have won
two. The present Giants have never.

yet to win.

at top speed, and I know they will
go their best but I can't "see" a

against one that can tear down the
fences. My eyesight isn't that good:
