The loss of Sherwood Magec, probably, the most valuable man on the Philadelphia club, because of his ability to bat in runs may burt the Phillies more than a little. In the East they believe that the great hitter is wrong mentally; not ciazy but a trifle "dippy" as it were, and they account for his ussault unon Umpire Finneran In that way. However that may be it isn't likely that Magee will be of use to the Phillies again this season.
