The Cubs are very much in the
National league race for last place.
Only New Yorn stands in their way.
Bresnahan's men moved a peg near
er the cellar station Sunday when
McGraw's crew pounced on them for
seven runs in the last three innings
of a listless game. If it had rained
after the end of the fifth inning the
Cubs would have won but it didn't
If the lowly Cubs can win all the
rest of the games this season and
then add in all the exhibition games
they have won and lost, and if Phila
delphia just turns their wins and
losses around, then perhaps the West
Side ball team might win the flag this
season of course, that is, if Brook
lyn, Boston, St, Louis, Cincinnati or
Pittsburgh didn't beat them to it
A manager has got to have the
backing of all his men, both in heart
and playing. If you haven't got the
heart you can't play the ball. And if
you aren't a player you can play just
because you have the heart to. The
Cub boss has men who can play when
they want as is shown In such games
as the last one Jim Vaughn pitched.
But it takes a dozen losses to jolt up
the fighting spirit of the Cub ma
chine. Maybe too many of the men
feel too confidence behind their iron
clad contracts. Sometimes it seems
too bad Cheney didn't take some of
his brother Cubs with him.
But, cheer up, everybody, 1916 is
coming and we'll lay a bet that Bajah
has a fighting machine on deck when
the season starts.
Bob Fisher is the out-of-Iuck guy.
Sunday he got another biff in the face
from a bounding baseball. Ten days
ago a bad bounder caught his nose
square and broke it In yesterday's
battle Fletcher tapped a warm one
toward Fisher and again a bad bound
sent the ball wrong. This time Bobby
is nursing a bruised eye.
With the end of the real baseball
season hiding somewhere within the
next twenty days, we feel it due time
to announce that the Sox are not go-,
ing to cop in the American league.
In fact the only chance Chicago has
In the championship baseball line lies

tional, Detroit for the American and

Detroit is steaming right along
nowadays and when the fighting
spirit is up, look out for "them Ti
gers." True, Boston also is hitting a
snappy stride, but something tells us
Detroit Is going to be the top-notch,
team before many days.
