tv in who happens to have something on the opposing may decide it all by Almost every worlds series yet play has been a oneman and the problem the now is to decide which pitcher has something on the ether and which pitcher is in the best rather than which team is better or which pitching staff is After a careful study of the pitch not cnly in their work of the sea and in past but in study ing the kind of batters they must face and the kind of pitching the batters must the only chance I can see for New York is that big Jeff Tesroau de velops into the oneman hero of the It looks at present as if Bostons pitching applied to New York conditions and ranks 73 a possible 5S for the Slim Chance for Matty You may think it odd that I figure Mathewson as having a very small chance to beat the Red In 1 am led to think that his style of pitching is just the kind the hest hit ters on the Boston team like to I it appears to is the Giants lone Jf any one can stop Uoston it is this big whose great speed
