To-morrow he will discuss the American League outlook. These articles will be printed in these columns exclusively every Monday and Tuesday throughout the baseball season. BY JOHN J. M'GRAW. (Monaprr of the Champion Oianti.) ' UK big surprise to date among the new maaager in the Na tional League, whom I prom ised lairt week to make the subject of to-day's article. It John Ever of the Cuba. Of course. It Is difficult to draw any accurate conclusion at this atage of the race, but, basing comment on his early allowing, It looks as though Kvers would get a whole lot more baaeball out of the Cubs this season than many baseball men expected. I base thia prediction on two facts. First, the Cuts hare been playing clubs that are rated to he strong onea the strongest In the league outside of the Olanta and hare more than held their own. Chicago has already John J. McQrsw. had a series with both Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, and each team has plenty of natural strength, although, lodging by the scores, Tinker has not developed It In hla elub yet. The Reds r regarded by baseball men as a good ball club, and many figure they will flnlsh ahead of the Cuba ultimately. Some hare gone further and counted tho Cobs out of the general concluding contention for the pennant While I thought, and still believe, that Cincinnati has a good chance to boat out Chicago, still I never regarded the Cuba aa being so weak that they did not lave a look -In for the pennant.
