Even if their last two home games 1 could fill the Autos- K'" lo capacity, the club would ill fall short of that objective. O'Quinn has a lot of ideas why the fans have not been re- sponding (his year but no solu- tions. 'But 1 think one of tiie big- FEW days after the Montreal Canadians had deposited the Iteioii Brains cut of the Stanley Cup playofis last season a member of Ihe Bruins' camp cynically explain- ed Derek Sanderson's value to the learn. "He's the one guy on the club who unites the Bruins." the player said. ''The whale team hates Derek. We're all united against him. He's what brings us together." Perhaps Ihe story is apocryphal but tiie point is clear: Sanderson remains Ihe most controversial phu-r in Ihe whether the Bruins like it or not. And some of them don't Derek, can't make up his own mind how much he likes it since he bats his own image from good-guy to bad-guy like a ping pong ball. "The public won't lei you even he what you want." says Sanderson. "You can't please them all, so lo hell with Ihcni. Everyone is waiting for me lo crumble, In [all apart. F dcn't need that aggravation." A major source of Derek's aggravation for Ihe past year has been Bruins' coach Tom Johnson, who succeeded Stanley Cup winner Harry Sindcn. Derek dug Sindcn but battled all year with Johnson. "The trouble with Johnson." Sar.derson said in the midst of one of their feuds, "is that IK thinks like I hat bow tic he wears." According to insiders among the Bruins. Derek and John- sou engaged hi a hitler argument after Sanderson had de- scribed National Hockey League President Clarence Campbell as "a stuffed shirt." .iobnson told Sanderson to keep his mouth shut and Derek adamantly refused. Later. Derek told friends thai the rookie coach had overreacted. "I've always said these things." said Derek. "Sinden loved it, the players loved it. So 1 handled all the talking. I'd say a lot of things I really didn't believe, tilings other play- ers were thinkinu about but were afraid to sav. Now I've got a coach who's serious, lie's a rookie, and'he blew it. "ion can't order me to do something, lie's got lo I've got to change." At times Derek did change. Peace became his motto. He agreed that he had to be mere flexible with management, with the man-in-the-strcet. But he only changed by degrees. "I really haven't changed that much." he said. "Instead of insulting people I allow (hem their weaknesses. Another thing, the press is asking me different questions. They no longer think I'm just a sc.x maniac. Having long hair doesn't make a guy a freak. cession. They also made the Orioles' slight favorites to win the opener behind McNally, who was 1M-5 during the regular sea- son compared with 19-ii for Ellis, tile Pirates' big winner. PITCHING NO WOItltY However, Baltimore manager Earl Weaver, as concerned about first baseman Boog Pow- ell as Murtaugh is about Ellis, doesn't have Aim-laugh's pitch- ing problems. He has named right-hander Jim Palmer and left-hander Mike Cuellar to go after McNally. Powell, who has been both- ered by an ailing right hand, had x-rays taken Thursday while the Orioles worked out. They proved negative but did show torn fibres in the back of his hand. Powell, along with the two Robinsons Brooks and Frank is a key in a Baltimore of- fence that nil at a .261 clip with home runs during the regu- lar season compared wilh .274 and 154 homers for a Pittsburgh j team led by outfielder Willie, Stargell. Stargcll led the majors in ho- mers with 4ti. but had a disis trous scries against San Fran-, cisco Giants in the National League playoffs, going hitlcss ji 14 trips. There is a vast difference in pitching between the teams. Ellis was Pittsburgh's big win- ner while Baltimore had four 20-g a in e Palmer, Cuellar and Pat Dob- son. HAVE RAKE RECORDS The Orioles arc the only club other than Ihe 1920 Chicago White Sox ever to have four 20- gamc winners and are one of only three clubs in major league history to record 100 victories or more in three consecutive sea- sons. A team many feel is stronger than the team ihat defeated Cin- cinnati Hcris in five games in the 1970 World Series, the Ori- oles are starting off with a string of victories that exactly duplicates last at the end of the regular season and three consecutive in the plav- offs. The Pirates lost the first game to San Francisco in the playoffs and then battled back to take three in succession for i their first NL pennant since 19IJO GYMNASTIC BEAUTY The beauty of gymnastici will be displayed Wednesday and Thursday of next week al the Letilbridge Collegiate Institute as Ihe Danish nation- al gym team pays a visit.
