Tile Giants, however, were stronger
this year. They earned three and
one-fifth runs a game, whereas last
year they could get but three. Tneir
net gain over the Yankees was ntnetenths
of an earned run a game.
The evidence of Yank feebleness explains
why they could not win a
game and also why the two colonels
who own the club would listen to
dkis ior players, yea even uius iui
the erstwhile mighty Ruth. It Is
probable that the club desiring to
tp.lk trade about Ruth would have
to wrap its right eye In cotton wool
and leave it in the Yankee strong
box before the colonels could hear a
word, but they are not stone deaf on
Babe Rath Ik in Bad.
It became known from authentic
sources today that the management
or the Yanks is anything but
pleased with Ruth's conduct. This
does not refer so much to Rutn s
failure to nit in the world scries,
but his attitude throughout the year
is a horse of another color. That
Bimile is used advisedly, for it has
been charged in many quarters that
Ruth's interest in which horse was
first past the wire ofttimes was
greater than his interest in which
run was lir.st to the piate.
The weakest pitcher in the 1922
"world series was Joe Rush. Bush
broke down twice and was hit hard
when hits meant runs. The second
poorest pitcher for the Yanks was
Mays. Hoyt was the Yank pitcher
who did the best work, according to
the earned runs standard, and Shawkey
was next. Hoyt pitched a laey
game, but he held the Giants in check
better than the other Yank hurlers.
The best pitcher for the Giants,
measured by earned runs, was Scott,
of course, who pitched a snutoui.
Barnes was next In-st, but he did not
do as well as in 1921. In that year
the Yanks averaged 1 runs against
him. but this year they nicked him
for two runs, fcihawkey made the real
improvement. They got him for seven
earned runs in nine innings last year.
This year they earned three runs in
ten innings. Nehf was less effective
this year than last. The Yanks gave
Bush better batting this year than
they gave the pitchers who opposed
Kejif last year.
