man.- Koney -Is no insider ballplayer
He does mighty little' thinking! but
he lams the ballT . ' .
Koney would not 'have made that
costly playr because he rmightv not
have thought of it. JMerkle tried to
think and became tangled in his own
wits.. McGrawdoes all the thinking
for , the Giants. .Everyi'play;ismade
5n-l orders. He probabiyrializes
that' his only chancers' to' keep-his
men .from trying to. exercise their
own brains. They always trip up
when they make the attempt.
Koney would have, pjayed -the ball
home and nailed Eddie Murphy, be
cause it was the obvious play.
It is reported thaf during the first
game he pitched against Mathewsbn
some of the Athletic players tried
to .hurry Plank, and He replied that
he-was an old man' and, had to take
his time.1 All of -the jGiaitf' player-
authors, used tliis material in their
stories and gloated over it.
But this old man went back Satur
day and made them look like a bunch
of applicants for charity. They didn't
get a thing from him. Except for an
error on a fly ball, which Plank him
self dropped when Baker ran into
him, the Giants would not have got
ten near the plate.
We hear a whole lot about the
high throw of Burns' which allowed
a run, and Merkle's boner, which ac
counted for two, and the experts say
that with these plays eliminated the
score would have been 1 to 0 in favor
of the Giants. They fail to figure that
the Giant run was also scored as the
r result of a punk play. Alibying is
; great stuff.
' Pittsburgh got revenge on Cy Fal
