As ten Hie pitchers, 1 am sure the have (he best of it, despite fact thai Mathewson and Mar- unlieat- and Coombs are every bit as good, If not better, inasmuch as they are bears for work. This pair could alternate day in tlie -jeason and win con- sistently. Bender Is at his best when the baseball map are lying awake ho pitches twice a week, while Coombs us in an effort to enlighten tho Is never in tiptop form unless he explained the funs will start picking Tho Glanls have the eiliin lii this de- partment, although Thomas, who way nipected to ho a olnoli for the Cuba last season, upset all the dope, and turned back Ihe Chicago runners In a ridiculously easy manner. Many National league, rooters will ilaim that the Athlcllra arc liHtlng letter than Ihe Clans because early u tire season the new leagitt used a baseball. But for Ihe first six veeks in the spring, about the length at the career of the "rubber" pellet, ha Athletics were the weakcal hi' ing club in the circuit.' The llvelv 111 surely had noUilng to do witii :ieir swell hitting average. Soveil games is not a proper tout and luck often decides a winner. The Glant'-i may get the "breaks" and win, but, nevertheless, they do not figure tn be as good a loam ay the Athletics. MAJESTIC THEATRE M.nigw. PHONC Ml. 'John (Josgrovopresents' MDE.

Barry -and Collins are the cleverest pair of fielders that ever performed around the middle cushion. They are lightning fast in pulling double piays and with Mclnnei on the firat blue end have completed more of these playa than any other, combination In cither the American or'National league. In- dividually, both are the test fielders u the country. Hoth can cover an un- limited amount of ground.

With the Giants and Aaihletics prac- caliy -sure to meet for ihe world'' country over ,ire digging up the dope and trying t, decide which will carry their money. The writer will bet his two-dollar note 'on the American league reprw.'nuitives but believes it will be a series from'start to finish rind (hat. ii niav take nil Dev- on games bc'ore a winner ia found. According to my figures the Giants have but one thing on the Athletics and that ia base running. There is no team in 'airher league that has stolei i anywhere near as manv bases as th Giants. Still, I believe the Athletic are just as fleet of foot, and If thoj bad played the same offence game us the Giants thi-a season would httv., credited with just as many pilfers s the New'Yorkers. The Athletics' method of attack this soaaon Ivaa been the "hit-and-run most entirely, although Connie Mack has not overlooked the sacrifice whei games were close. Giants Change Ticties On the other han, McGraw's -.style this has been exactly opposite .0 his nwthort of lust ye-.ir. He switched 'rom tbo "hit-and-run" anrl the sacri- fice game generally, to stealing. No matter what cutcher wan working against them, the Glanls were ever stealing or attcnjptlng to tteil second. N'o matter If 10 men were nipped, Me- would order the IIth to make a (lanh for the succeeding big. And It crlalnly has proved n grent winning game for the OMnntB. Thta is why the Olanls are credited moro stolen Ixnea than Ihu Ath- etles. The winning percentage ot Matty and Marquard combined while Betl- ler and Coombs team up with an ev- ernge of .702. The Athletics will go into the series a team that if it maintains its iresoiil volt with the wagon tongue will be hitting a trifle; over .300. T.he GlanW at present are hitting for .286 -1-5, about 34 poinfj less-than the American league team. Mackmen's Defense Strong On the defense 1 .believe the Athletic have a good margin too. To compare the team man for man, shows little but to size up the infields and out- fielrls all right.
