in these 12 games should prime the
locals "with confidence for the com
ing battles with the Red Sox and
Washington, two teams that are
playing good ball.
Red Faber will be back in harness
by the time the double-header sea
son arrives. The rube pitcher will

and that would mean four catchers,
too many for one club as the lines
are drawn now. One of the present
boys will have to go. Archer is sure
to stay, and Fischer has a better
chance to stick than demons. We
are not speculating.
