ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Maybe the World Series champion New York Mets will fall flat on their faces. Maybe manager Gil Hodges will lose his magic. Maybe pitchers Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman won't win at least games Maybe, but don't bet oo it. After eating chalk, with SI. Louis Cardinals last spring, this observer has caught the Met re- ligion. The amazin's did the convincing last September and October and there appears to be no reason to abandon ship de- spite a so-so record in spring training. The Mets have bolstered the one weak spot in their infielu with Joe Foy at third base They picked up an experience! left-hander in Ray Sadeckt And they will have the full-season sen-ices of big Donn Ctendenon. After beating off Chicag Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates anc the say nothing o Philadelphia Phillies and Mon- treal they must take on the best in the West before the make the World Series again. PADRES PUT DOWN The best in the West could be any one of five teams. We ex elude only San Diego Padres from the race. Despite a pKc ing problem that still exist that raw power in Ihe Cincinna Reds' order suggests they wi rutslug Atlanta Braves, Houston istros, San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. Here's the way it looks from >re in the two divisions: East-1. New York; 2. Cni- 3. SL' Louis; 4. Pitts- Philadelphia; 6. Mon- treal. CbxannaU; Z. At- lanta; 3. Houston; 4. San Fran- cisco; 5. Los Angeles; 6. San Diego. The Pirates have been getting _ big play from the sports writ- ers in Florida .who have been awed by that'steady batting order and the fine early form of Bob Veale, Bob Moose and Dock Ellis. But it is hard to overlook' the Cubs, who did have a 914-game lead on Aug. 13 and appeared ready to sell World Series tick- ets. Losing that lead had lo leave scars on the Cubs. However, the big reason we put them second is a' shortage of starting pitchers behind Fer- guson Jenkins, Bill.Hands and Ken Holtrman. The Cubs have a strong but thin line of regulars. Injuries to Ron Santo, Ernie BankE, Don Kessinger, Glenn Montreal Camp Is Different Beckert or Billy Williams could be disastrous. For a starter they are in trouble with Randy Hundley on the injured list. St. Louis is in a muddled situ- ation because o! the illness of Mike Shannon. Red Scoendieiist has been trying Joe Torre, Phil Gagliano and Richie Allen at third base. Ted Simmons, the rookie who is expected to be the No. catcher still is in the Army. The bullpen is in trouble without Joe Hocrner. Allen's big bat is going lo be a big help and the pitching trio of Bob Gibson, Steve Carllon and Nelson Eriles is rough. The Phillies are rebuilding the kids, installing.Larry Bowa at short and Denny Boyle at sec- ond in the middle of the infield. They are short one outfielder. McCARVER VITAL, Tim MeCarver must bounce back strong if they are to get The Leafs, although Out Of inq (mjorl B. Walson tmalor) playoff contention, never stopped fighttog and even pulled bS' goalie Bruce Gamble for an extra attacker to try and tie the game in the dying seconds.

(CP) Joe Sparma, the fire- balling right hander traded to Montreal Expos after1 six sea- sons with Detroit Tigers of the American League, has founc quite a few differences in the training camp operations of the two clubs, "We ran a lot more here for one Sparma said, as the National League Expos pre- Fly Suzuki Built To Take On The Country HONCHO ON DISPLAY NOW!

Vhy? Because I'm throwing more strikes." TO PITCH OPENER Sparma, 28, has been named manager Gere Mauch's choice o go against Cincinnati Reds n the American city in the Na- ional league's regular season opener next Monday. Sparma left Detroit good catching. Much depends on comebacks by Chris Short and Jim Sunning in the pitching de- partment. Montreal is in over its head again but could do better than last year's sad 52-110 record. In Ihe West, the booming bats of the'Reds will have to make up for pitching shortages al- though they hope Jim Me- Glolhlin and rookie Wayne Simjjson will come to the aid of Gary Nolan, Jim Mcjritt and Jim Maloney. Sparky Anderson is gambling on rookie shortstop Dave Con- ception but has Woody Wood- ward to fall back on in case of (rouble. The loss of Ron Reed was a body blow to the Braves, taking But Ron Ellis' 34th goal of the season was.the only one the Leafs could put behind Ranger neiminder Ed Giacomin. At Montreal, the Canadiens veterans came fo life with centre Jean Beliveau collecting two goals and an assist and left-winger John Ferguson a goal and assist. Ralph Backstrom, Yvan Cour- noyer and Jacques Laperriere were the other Montreal scorers before a record crowd of fans. Canadiens goalie Rogatien Vachon stopped 31 Boston shots but allowed two goals by centre Phil Esposito and one by league scoring leader Bobby Orr. Goalie Ed Johnston allowed five of the Montreal goals be- fore being replaced by Gerry Cheevers midway through the second period.

Juan Marichal and Gaylotx Perry on the mound and Willie McCovcy, Willie Mays am Bobby Bonds at the plate are going to keep the Giants in the thick of it. They have finished second five years in a row. The Dodgers are another club that could blow up a storm if kids lit? Bill Buckner and possi- bly Steve Garvey como through.
