Tho Cleveland Naps have been hit harder by the Fed erals than any other American league team.'. Jos Birmingham will be against tough proposition in gotting a pitch' ing staff for the coming season, because he has lost three.,of his most valuable men in Falkenberg, Blanding and Kah ler. There is no reason why the Naps should suffer any more than some of the other teams in the American league, but It so happened that' the three men were unsigned and open for a proposi tion, and when one jumped the other two followed. Last year the Naps had a pitching staff almost as strong as the White Sox. It was the boast of the Cleve land fans that they had the' strongest lot of pitchers in the btg leagues, but they will ntt be able to make any such boast this year. Birmingham will have four good men left from last year's staff in Mitchell, Steen, Gregg and Cul- lop. ITe maye be able to pick up one or two worthy youngsters in the spring roundup, but the young pitchers will not be nearly as valuable as Falken berg, Blanding and Kahlor, even . if they proved good enough to keep.

Manngor after man ager has been tried out In hopes that the change would break the hoodoo and land the team in first place, but each now manager has gone the way of his le'ViMisnr without winning. More money has been spent by Charlie Bom em, owners of the Naps, in the lust ten years for now players than any other owner in tho young major organization, but the money has been thrown away each year.
