SWAP WITH GIANTS SHOULD BE
BIG HELP TO CUBS
By Mark Shields
Jimmy Archer and Mordecai
Brown are lonesome gentlemen out
on the North Side. They are the
only remaining members of the old
Cub pennant manufacturing ma
chine, now that Heinie Zimmerman
has gone elsewhere.
Art Hofman, the itinerant out
fielder, was also a member of the fa
mous clan, but Art cannot be classed
as a regular. Tinker is not playing
From a spectacular standpoint,
possibly, the trade of Zim to the;
Giants for Larry Doyle, Hunter and
Jacobson does not impress the Cub
fan army. But it should work out
to the good interests of the club and
make for more solidified play and the
perfection -of teamwork.
Doyle, though he has been in the
league several years, is a younger
man than Zimmerman and every
bit as competent in his position.
He has the necessary fighting spirit
and is the-winning type of ballplayer.
His batting mark is around .260 for
this much of the season. Last year
he led the league in hitting and there
is no reason why he should not be
away to a good start next season.
His work in New York has been
hampered by the frequent newspaper
trades made by experts there, always
sending him to some other big league
city or back to the minors. This is
bound to handicap an athlete.
Hunter fancies himself as a first
baseman, but McGraw has tried him
at third and he has done good work
in that position. Jacobson is an out
fielder of no major league experi
ence, but his minor marks were im
pressive. Gradually Tinker is rebuilding art.
