TEAM TO REPEAT,

Not Discouraged by Unsatis

Chicago. April S. Jake Stahl, man
ager of the world's champion R' d Sox
; baseball team, brought his aggrega
i tion to Chicago from Crbana and de
parted yesterday for BoBton. Despite
an unsatisfactory training trip. Mana
ger Stahl said his men were as fit as
i(ou!d be expected under the (ondi
j tions. Manager Jake opined his team
has an even chance to duplicate its
performance of last ypar.
Stahl had thought his men would
get a good workout at I'ibaua. the
home- of the Cniversity of Illinois,
where Jake started his baseball career.
but the weather was cold and it. rain- j
d several times, which forced the ath- j
, letes to do their training in the arm
ory. ' "I ihiuk our team is every bit as
good as last year,'' caid Stahl. The
piuhers have not, had the weather to
put them in the best of condition, and
I have not allowed them to do too much
work. Some of the players are both
ered with sore arms, owing to the
Icold. but as soon as we strike warmer
weather this soreness will work out.
"My pitchers are not bo'hered, be
cause I did not allow- them to extend
themselves on any occasion. It was
' cveieagerness on the part of some
players to test their arms that led tti
so many sore 'w ings." Of course it is
i early to make predictions, but I be-!
lieve we have an even chance of re-'
pelting our performance of a year I

one of the greatest managers the game
ever has known, must not be over
looked. "If my piuhers are right, the Red
Sox should repeat. I believe I have
the best staff of pitchers in the league,
'and the problem now is to get them in
shape for the opening. Naturally I
would rather lo.se games at the s'art
than force a pitcher to his limit, with
the possibility of disabling him for the
