Probably four and a half million will assort positive- ly that Iho Red So.x are sure to win, and three and a half million will reply with oiiual vigor that tho lOnnts will beat them. Out of those eight millions perhaps not SO ever studied tho teams careful- ly; compared and analyzed tho play- ers; made a close study of the system of plays used by Managers Stahl and Mctiraw, and calculated not only what tho men n-iid teamy t-nu and have done against other teams, but what they are likely to dp in contending .with the kind of team and the kind of pitchers they will be compelled to face In the coming series. Personally Likes Red Sox It Is'tao purpose of this series of articles to study just these things. Like all true fans I .start with the belief that Boston is the better chili and ought to win. But I am willing to bo convinced by the analysis. I be- lieve the Red Sox are a better hall club, have shown themselves, better against the teams of the American league than tho Giants have against their opponents in the National. The question is not that. The ques- tion is whether the Giants are a better team iu a world's series and against the pitching of lue Ked Sox than the Red Sox will be against the pitchers of McGraw's for a'month or a season, but for a short series, in which condition of pitchers may tell more than a-nything. First, 1 have evolved a system of working out the.probabaities in series such as these which, require an im- mense amount of figuring. It has worked out successfully in the 'except in the case' of tho Cubs against the Athletics, where the false form of the Cub pitchers two weeks hefore-the series wrecked the entire system. I figure the relative value of each position in one series, figure the rela- tive value of the opposing players on a basis of 100 in batting, fielding, base running, throwing, giving each department its relative value and re- ducing it to terms' of com- KETCHELL AND FOUGHT KILBANE A DRAW AT WINNIPEG Not a Fiery Was It a Dead One AVIATOR CAUGHT IN PECULIAR WIND Winnipeg, Sept.

The bout was steinott as a passenger the air was not one to enthuse over, as most of. perfectly calm.

Compares Hooper and Murray. The first comparison is between Red Murray and Harry Hooper, right fielders of the teams. On a basis of comparison in all departments of tho gayc I give Murray a rank of G3 on the basis of 100 and place Hooper at 71. hi fielding Hooper is slightly faster, watches batters more closely; shifts positions plays the game in much more finished fashion, while, in sensational work and the making of startling catches Murray is much ill the lead. He achieves by speed and daring much that Hooper performs by studious, steady work. There is little to choose between the two men either in speed or in throw- ing, although Hooper is more finished in catching balls in position for .throws. In a manner Murray is handicapped as a fielder by the New York grounds. The right Held on the Polo grounds is short near the foul line and the high concrete barrier back of the field would make a more timid man stop on many flies that Murray gets by tak- ing a chance of cracking the stadium. Hooper's home.Iield is a hard one, deep and peculiarly, shaped, although the depth will be much restricted by the new seats being thrown up on Fenway park for the series. Hooper has worked with much free dom In fielding tinil' In thu point working with (ho inlteldcrs coming out and with iho speedy Speaker between Holds, he is much superior to Murray, who has. over.since ho baa been In the National league, permitted too immy bulbs to got between him and the center fielder.

The players think Hint' it was the tcrrlllc speed shown'by Ilunder hud Coombs that broVo him up, and if that true he must change his system to lay a bat. iigalust Joe Wood's offer- ings. Toisup In.Daae Running You will find, in studying the teams, Hint you. can not arbitrarily take the base running figures and compare the men. I'l-imai-lly .'the figures on bases stolen moan nothing. Murray will lead Hooper iu tho number oi steals on the season probably, but the ngurra do not show how of'teii ho was caught trying to steal. The Boston club runs with intent to steal many fewer times, but 1 belieV' the figures would show that when the; do start they laud in safety a greate percentage of'times llir.n lie-draw's men do. This fact Is true 'of Murray and Hooper. 'Hooper Is aBdve a .SCO hitter, natur- and a strong hitter against good pitching. Murray is about a 285 hitter normally, and he does not hit well against good pitching. For the use in -this comparison took at random 20 games of each player Hooper against Bender, Walsh, Johnson, Mullen, Ford, the strong pitcuere of the and in his 20 games against these good pitchers Hooper batted .241.
