Watch for some up-boys-and-at-'em
work on the bases today when
the White Sox meet the St. Louis
Browns for the second game of the
Any kind of manual labor on the
diamoira' yesterday was impossible,
but Manager Callahan gave his brain
muscles some work to do, and they
evolved a scheme to beat every other
team in the league. If Cal could only
shift a few of his brain muscles to
some of his athletes he's be all right
The boss wants more speed. He
realizes that if a man fails to hit in
the pinches it is probably because the
opposing pitcher has some fool stuff.
But the manager can't see any ex
cuse for slow work or suicide on the
paths, such as occurred in the first
game of the present set. He and Kid
Gleason palavered over the matter
yesterday while the rain was falling,
and the kid threatened- to run a few
bases himself, just to show' how the
thing should be done. A banner
crowd would come out to see Gleason
run, especially if a three-cornered
race could be arranged, with Tom
Needham, of the Cubs and Ping Bodie
as the other entries.
Picking today's pitcher today is
purely guesswork, and when we se
lect Benz we admit we wouldn't place
a large bunch of change on his start
ing. Lange is a possibility, Ed Walsh
may be used if it is warm by 3 o'clock,
and Lefty Russell also has a chance
of starting his second major league
game. But it is away past Benz's
turn, and-he was the pitcher warming
up when the Browns began to ham
mer Cicotte Thursday. If .Walsh is
not in today he is a pretty good bet
for tomorrow, when George Stovall
plans to use Carl Wielman, his sen
sational young south-paw. This
means that Ray Schalk will replace
