What Ails Walter?
Waller .lohnsoii was knocked out of
the box before the Heiisor. i;nt very
old, and Walter'y pitching average to
date shows that lie lias been nieetiiii;
with unusual number of reverses.
The baseball bugs are nskln:;, "What
alls Walter?"
Has Johnson lost some of the can
nlng of his pitching wing?
Has the strain of throwing thu
bullet ball be;.;un to tell?
Is Johnson going back?
Clark Grifhth laughs 'at the idea.
When somebody asked hlni about It
he thought It was a Rood Joke, and
when it is remembered that Johnson
has pitched and lost some of the
toughest Raines that have been
dropped by any pitcher this season we
can see a reason for Griffs stand.
The Washington hall club "is the
trouble with Walter."
The Senators have not been givlni;
him runs, and no pitcher can win
without runs. Klval managers have
Hhown a tendency to pit their best
pitchers against Johnson. They lit;
ure that a good pitcher can stop the
Washington batsmen, mid that one or
two runs made off Johnson will be an
abundant sufficiency to win. Let the
Washington club make a few runs for
Johnson and It is rale to nay thai he
will breeze abin;; with Iho mime old
wlnnlnif stride.
