There is a difference between a
waist ball and a waste ball. Some
times the difference is three bases.
John L. Sullivan's prediction that
both Boston clubs would cop the ma
jor league pennants isn't worrying
Brooklynites. John L., you know, is
the same fella who said Moran would

Barnes is a fine pitcher, but Tinker
already has good enough boxmen.
Smith is a good third baseman. But
his work woold undoubtedly suffer if
he came from a possible pennant
winner to a second division club. Fitz
is a fair average ballplayer who has
been up in the big show for some
time and has never been able to land
a reguar berth. Collins is not the
equal of any outfielder on the Cub
We need infielders, and we'd get a
