ing. They won their way to the front,
gradually Increasing their lead and
held it. They gained their place by
hard and steady batting and through
beating the Athletics and the best of
their other rivals. They did not gain
any almost invincible lead at the start
by fattening upon the weaker teams.
"They are upon top now and play
ing the same old game. The Giants,
on the other hand, seem to be slump
ing badly and have only just com
menced what may prove to be an ex
hausting and disastrous trip.
"To my mind the Giants are not a
heavy hitting team. I have not seen
them play this year, but am speaking
of them as they appeared to me in
the world's series last year. Myers
"I look for Joe Woods to be the real
sensation of the series if he sticks to
bis fast ball and puts his slow one in
the refrigerator. The Giants cannot
hit a speed pitcher and on the dark
Polo grounds Wood ought to stand
the Giants on their heads with his
tremendous smoke. But if I were
Wood I should stick to my fast ball
and curve. His slow one is too slow
to be very effective.
"Just how good - New York's pitch
ing staff is this year I cannot say.
Marquard has been phenomenally suc
cessful, but he appears to be slipping
some just now. Mathewson was easy
for the Red Sox in 1909, and they
should find him even easier now.
Ray Collins is a clever southpaw

and Herzog batted fairly. But Mer

"We hear a lot about the great base
running of the Giants and their pen
chant for running wild on the sacks.
Well, that Is all very fine at times,
but the club stealing the most sacks
is not necessarily the winning outfit.
The world's series is too short for
base running to cut much of a figure
and the history of past conflicts for
the universal title has shown that
both contenders are so much keyed
up and realize the importance of the
battles so much that they do not take
"It is the club that runs the bases
with judgment that wins, not the one
that runs hog wild. Besides this the
Red Sox have in Bill Carrigan one of
the brainest men in the country, and
he may be depended on to outguess
McGraw's 'speed marvels' and keep
them from doing very much thieving
when It counts. McGraw has a lot of
fast players, in fact, most of his club
is good on the bases, but opposed to
a backstop of Carrigan's class they
will not be able to take the scandal
