Can Alvin Dark get along with A's Charlie Finley? red dMrttaft UN for of u maNaftr Dark can get along with i Charlie Finley of Oakland Athletics. It was the ability of former manager Dick Williams to act at.a butter between Finley and hu often unhappy players that kept OaUand atop the West for three seasons. Williams got fed up at the end of last season and left the As, opening the door for Finley to rehire Dark, whom he fired when the Athletics represented Kansas City. The switch in managers is the only significant change in Strengthened with winter trades Reds get nod in west race By GLENN COLE The Canadian Press Cincinnati Reds have won the National League's West Division title the last two seasons and they appear ready to do it again this year. The team managed by Sparky Anderson made a couple of deals during the winter to strengthen an already solid club. First, they dealt disenchanted outfielder Bobby Tolan to the Padres for right- handed pitcher Clay Kirby, the only quality hurler on the San Diego staff last year. Kirby's acquisition made expendable right-hander Ross Grimsley who was sent to Baltimore Orioles for Merv Rettenmund, who will replace Tolan in the outfield. The heart of the Cincinnati lineup is catcher John Bench, left fielder Pete Rose and second baseman Joe Morgan all in perfect health. Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants each have a good deal of fine young talent and it is likely they will wind up battling for the No. 2 spot behind the Reds. The Dodgers have one of the best pitching staffs in the National League with right- handers Don Sutton and Andy Messersmith and lefty Badminton entries set to end Entries close Friday for the annual Civic Centre Badminton Qub tournament.

And they have a solid bullpen with newly- acquired Mike Marshall and veteran Jim Brewer. The Giants'have solid starters Ron Bryant, a 24- game winner last year, and Tom Bradley, who was 13-12 after coming over from Chicago White Sex of the American League. The Giants also have speed and power in their outfield with Bobby Bonds, Gary Matthews and Gary Maddox. Bonds led the Giants with 39 home runs and 96 runs batted in and had a .283 batting average. Houston has potentially good power in the bats of Lee May, Doug Rader and Bob Watson, but the pitching will have to be much more consistent if the Astros are going to rise above last year's fourth place finish. The Astros acquired veteran Canuck player ruled impaired VANCOUVER (CP) Forward Dennis Ververgaert of the National Hockey League Vancouver Canucks was charged early today with impaired driving. Ververgaert, 21, of North Vancouver, was specifically charged with driving a motor vehicle while having a blood alcohol content exceeding .08 per cent. He was released on recognizance and will appear in provincial court April 23. left-hander Claude Osteen to snore up their pitching but they gave up young lefty Jerry Reuss to Pittsburgh for catcher Milt May. Atlanta Braves will score a lot of runs this season and no doubt veteran outfielder Hank Aaron will surpass Babe Ruth's all-time home run mark of 714. Aaron, third baseman Darrell Evans and second baseman Dave Johnson accounted for 124 home runs between them last season, but the Braves pitching staff surrendered almost as many. San Diego has acquired veteran ball players like Willie McCovey from San Francisco, Glenn Beckert from Chicago Cubs, Tolan and Matty Alou. If injuries and age don't interfere and if the Padres can get some pitching, they may vacate the cellar. of the National Leagae Boa Locker to a switch relief pitchers. The Athletics, are clearly the best team in the divtotoo. Their pitching staff, headed by starters Catfish Hunter, Ken Holtimar. and Vida Blue and reliever Rollie Haters, Joe Bill North and Reggie Jackson make up the division's best outfield and third baseman Sal Bamio and shortstop Bert Campaneris anchor a solid Infield. When Finley obtained catcher Ray Fosse last season, he shored up the club's one weak spot. The Athletics are young enough at most positions to have Oakland fans dreaming about dynasties. The real fight in the West Division should be for second place. Some shrewd off- season trades make California Angels the best bet for the runner-up spot. Key acquisitions were second baseman Denny Doyle, who finally came into his own as a .273 hitter with Philadelphia Phillies of the The fora ottfftoMsf Rkhto and first baseman Mike Epstein and a return to health by outfielder Bobby Valentine Nolan Ryan and Bill Singer return to five California a strong one-two pitching Wilbur Wood and Stan Bah- nsen can't Mart and complete every game for Chicago white Sox, so they will again be also- rans, detpite the Eats of Dick Allen, Bill Melton, Ron Santo and Carlos May. Off-season trades brought starter Nelson Briles and re- liever Lindy McDaniel to Kan- sas City, but left the Royals with big gaps in left and right field. A shortage of power hit- ters will enable their opponents to pitch around their two best hitters, Amos Otis and John Mayberry. Minnesota Twins have two of the game's outstanding players in pitcher Bert Blyleven and second baseman Rod Carew, but little else. Veteran slugger Harmon Killebrew may be finished.
