outfielder recently sold by the Tigers to

didn't do their best for Manager Jen
nings, who, he says, abuses them dread
"That is the whole secret r>l the
Tigers' rank failure last year,," says
Jones, "and that will be the cause of
a worse showing next season. They
will be extremely lucky to finish higher
than seventh, because the players, with
the exception of Cobb, all hate Jen
nings and won't do their best for him.
N<?w York will beat them out, sure.
"I was sold because I had informed
President Navln I never would play
