RED SOX BETTER THAN THE GIANTS Cleveland Scribe Believes Boston Would Win World's Series From New York Nationals Cleveland, Sept. an Ameri- can league partisan, tho writer visited Pittsburg to witness tho double-head- ers between the Glunts and Pirates. Of course, it la iHOlcuU to judge a team's ability by watching it play but a single series.. In fact, it scarcely fair to venture an opinion under such circumstances, but just the Biiine, I cannot SCR that, Boaton has anything to fear from the Giants. PittsbuTg looked io .mo like a team that could make things more Interest- ing for the American leaguers than the Giants. In tho first place, tho Red Sox oui field completely outclasses any trio of gardeners that McGraw can put the field. Stahl is a muuh better nat- ter than Merkle and almost as good a the bases. Doyle, however, has it on either Yerkes or Ball by a big margin. Wagner has It on Flet- cher In every way. In fact, the Giant youngster is scarcely in the same class as the Boston veteran, who is lilaying the best ball of his career. At third, Gardner is far more valuable than I-lerzog, In pitchers, Boston is just as strong as New York. Wood is a better pitch- er today than either Maihewson or Martiuard. Collins may prove as good a southpaw as Marqiiard, as the latter has not been pitching a very effective article of ball of lute. B-edient is im- H'oving right along and should prove lust as capable as Tesreau if more When it comes to thu second j stringers, the New York club, how- ever, appears som-ewhat stronger. 3'Brien has been very erratic oE late and, it is received a warning 'rom Manager Stahl. Pape is just "air, while Hail does not seem to lie .he pitcher he 'was in the sprin s just as good a relief pitcher, how- ever, as Crandall, and the pair will probably be used for. this purpose, npressed with McGraw's Leadership Behind the 'bat New York should excel. Carrigan, Nunamaker and Cady are efficient backstops, but nei- her ranks with Meyers when it cornea o all around ability.

The more one sees of McGraw, the more he is impressed with his ability. He certainly excelled Clarke in manager- ial acumen during tie series at Pitts- burg. Pittahurg looked good to me, al- though it lost threu of the four games. and I believe its pitchers would make a better showing against the' Red Sox than the Giant hurlers would. But Pittsburff can scarcely be considere-d a pennant contender any more, no more than the Athletics can -b-e reck- oned in the race in the American league.
