Phillies Training Trip at Southern Pines Fails to Put Them in
Better Shape Than t he Nationals in North
ern CI imate.
1 oiuer, it.
Manager Griffith's wisdom in taking
hla ball team to Charlottesville rather
than farther South, is shown by a
comparison of the Climbers with the
Phillies. Dooln's athletes trained at
Bouthern pines, X. C, enjoying a balmy
ky and soft breezes. The Climbers
worked frequently in wintry blasts,
hardening themselves for the climate
In their home town.
In spite of the weather conditions at
Charlottesville, the Climbers1 pitchers
were given plenty of work. They
rapidly got into condition, and now
IK better prepared than those of the
Phillies, who worked under seemingly
better conditions of climate.
The Phillies have yet to try curving
the ball. The Climbers have been doing
that for a week. The Phillies' hitters
were greatly surprised yesterday when
Joe Engel and Mel Gallia uncorked
.mazing speed and sharp curves. They
had not faced this before, and showed
up weakly at the plate 011 that ac
count. Grin! Is Satisfied.
"I am perfectly satisfied, said Man
ager Griffith this morning, -after look

is the ideal place for my ball club. The
jlayers don't have to accustom them

days to cold one. They were not
tothered a bit by yesterday's chill

H -c5- IF j1 -TICKLCD INSCNSfBte ' AWFUL. MUT S v Z4 1 '
As Jimmy Archer impaneled his monicker at the foot of a four-year
Cub contract Owner Murphy arose with extended eyeballs and dilated
nostrils to exclaim:
"THIS CINCHES THE PENNANT FOR CHICAGO; THE NATIONAL
LEAGUE RACE IS ALREADY OVER AND WON."
As deeply as we regret breaking this news abruptly to John J. McGraw
and Fred Clarke, we feel they should be tipped off In advance before in
curring any further expenditures in the quest of a forlorn hope. The
pennant, being CINCHED FOR CHICAGO by the Indomitable tongue and
iron jaw of C. W. Murphy, there Is nothing left for Messrs. McGraw,
Clarke, Dooin, Tinker, etc., to do but crate their palsied talent back home
sit back and wait for the worst.
It is, of course, a matter of widespread regret that such an excellent
race as the National League at one time promised should be so rudely dis
mantled a fortnight in advance of the opening game.
But baseball is full of bizarre turns and amazing twists, and such in
cidents, as untoward as they are, must be taken as a part of the game.
Since the Cubs have the pennant cinched there is nothing to do but to trail
the American League race and see which club there will be marked for
world series destruction.
Cubs vs. Giants
Leaving Mr. Murphy out of it for
the Cubs will furnish more trouble
capable of producing.
They have the best catching staff in the game in Archer and Bresna
han; they have a better pitching staff than last season, for Cheney and
Lavender arc further advanced in the way of needed experience Ritchie
is still around and a first-class left-hander has been recruited in the per
son of a Mr. Pierce.
Bridwell's return to form frames a hard hitting, heady and dependable
infield. What Zimmerman lacks In other fields he more than evens up
with tho war club. Br.'dwell is batting and fielding up to his best standard
and looks fit to stick out the year.
The 1912 outfield has been bolstered by the addition of Mike Mitchell,
a first-class ball player in every way.
In the way of material the Cubs are within easy reaching distance of
both Pirates and Giants.
The Other Angle.
But there are other angles in this game beyond that of playing ma
terial. Murphy has incurred the wrath of Chicago fandom and almost
the entire city is yearning for a chance to rise up and hammer the padding
out of the anvil chorus.
Anything approaching a bad start any indications of a slump will
be greeted with the most savage onslaught ever made on a ball club.
