Taint of Syndicate Ball

(By J. Ed Grlllo I
The sale of the Philadelphia club
to Will Locke and his colleagues has
wiped out the weakest link In tho
National league chain. Ever since
the Taft-Murphy Interests have been
in control ot the club, it has been In

is a good chance for the Phillies un

Dooin has a much better team than ;
its standing In recent campaigns
would indicate. He has been ham
pered by outside interference, and as
this, too. should be eliminated, there
is a chance for him to hac something

league pennant shall be unfurled.

This is partlcularlv true of the St
Louis Browns Stovall had a pitching
staff last season which compared fa
vorably with any In the league, and,
being made up of youngsters, there
is a good chance of it showing further
improvement. There are, of course,
numerous instances on record where
young pitchers who have shown mark

needs Chicago led the race last
spring because of the excellent work
I of the pitchers, but Callahan un
doubtedly erred In forcing them too
much. HiH pitching st.iff was through
by the 15lh of Mar because in his
anxiety to win games he had used up
the entire lot. Tt was nothing for him
I to use three pitchers every dav for
week, and, of course, helng deprived
j of the rest, which pitchers need, thev
'did not stand up long under the
! strain, and then the Sox began to
fall. Callahan will be better supplied
with twirlers this veni, and if he has
benefitted by his experience of last
season he will gel better results out

Portland 1913 Bunch to
Be Highest Salaried
Men in Coast League
The Portland team of lfH will be j
the highest salaried organization
which ever represented the Rose
City In the Coast league, according to
the statements of both the president
and manager of the club.
This is accountable for by two rea- j
sons. In the first place, the salarv
limits have been raised, and In the
second, more players will be carried
insuring the team against the loss
b accidents which result to the most'
fortunate of teams.
Last jear there was snppood to be
a salarv limit of $4,200 In the Co; st
league, but nearly every club In the
circuit was running beyond that fig
ure. According to the new laws of!
the National Agreement! Class AA '
league have a limit of $6000, which Is
I supposed to ue pinning.
It is tho limit on which President
Barrow is kicking at present, declar
ing It is too low. Manager Met re i
(feels otherwise about it and thiiils
that this amount just fits the case
ot the Coast league, at least.
"Salary raises and additional men!
will bring our payroll not far from
that point. If I carry twenty nun
I which Is my present intention and
this is SI Inn more than v. o paid out
last season. said Manager McCredie. j
The other Class AA are located in !
the east and middle west, and one j
of the chief reasons for their kick is
jon account of the fact that so mn;
J of the managers are major league,
veterans and are drawing dow n sal- j
iaries of $700 or $H00 per month. This
h?6 to be included in the total as laid
down by the Agreement, nnd cuts a
big hole In the remainder
It is generally understood that but i
few of the clubs In the International I
league or the American association!
made money last vear. and it seems
'to be a ease of the survival of the
'fittest, with no thought of the weaker
members of the league.
