CONNIE MACK WAS MISTAKEN
Manager's Prediction That He Would
Assemble Strong Team So Far
Has Not Materialized.
When Connie Mack disrupted his
great team after the 11)1-1 world's
series, selling Collins, linker, Hurry,
Shuwkey and Murphy and casting
adrift Ileuder, I'lank and Coombs, he
said: "I'll have playeis Just as good
two j ears from now." Hut Connie has
now discovered that roses do not grow
on every bush. After four consecutive
tulleuders since 11)1 1 ho seems to have
a team this year that Is even more of
a Joke than some of his previous clubs.
Last year Connie hud a respectable
tallender. One can't even say that for
this year's team.
