In so Jar as tho dope and statistics
chance to compote with Slahl's wonderful outfield rests
with his ability to display tbe samo talent which com
prises Mr. Burbank's genius.
As far as the dope goes Murray, Snodgrass, Devore,
and Becker are not to be classed with Speaker, Hooper,
and Lewis tbe slashing Muskeeters ot the Bostonlan
garden. This trio has been mentioned before in tho
public prints under large, black headlines depicting
their valor on the field of battle.
They form the best outfield In the, game from either
league for they can bit, field, run, and throw. They
play a ground ball like an Inflelder, cut In quickly and
shoot It from spot to spot with tbe accuracy of an
east sldo gunman potting an unsuspecting pal.
Speaker leadsLewis follows and Hooper rounds out
this admlrablo cluster or talent. Taking them collec
ts ely they form the one Big Edge of tho series the
toughest handicap which McGraw must face.
Suppose fop example that Mathewson and Tosrcau
are upon a par with Wood and Collins
Which pair of slabmen bas the toughest task as
signedthat of pitching to Murray, Snodgrass, and De
vore or that of pitching to Speaker, Hooper, and Lewis?
To,rnako an equal fight otit, Mathewson and Tesreau
must outpltch Wood and Collins, for they will be pitch
ing to a stronger offensive club, due -In the main to tbls
predominating Influence of outflsld power.
This Is where Mogul McGraw must use his Burbank
stuff to draw close to an even break. By grafting Mc
cormick's batting oyo on Devoro's outfleldlng hands,
and by further grafting .Shafer's fleet legs upon Mc
cormick's batting eye, tho combination will furnish him
an outfielder who may even make tho redoubtablo
Speaker arise and hustle.
in nih.r wnrrfa. if Devore Is not hitting well, Mc
Cormlck will bat for blm In the pinches, and If McCor
mlck peols off the desired blow Mr. Sbafer will Imme
diately do the sprinting for McCormlck. By wielding

As far as tbe Giants aro concerned, their outfield

where tbe combined batting average of the trio was ex

better. After his tragic slump In the Big Show he

Murray will compare well with Hooper or any one else
