BT WILL G. MACRAE
Not only have Manager Casey's Colts
taken the series from Aberdeen, which
by the way is the first series they have
taken since the season opened. but
they seemed at last to have struck
their gait, anil from now on the team
should become a factor in the race for
the Northwestern League pennant. Af
ter Casey's hired men had hooked up
with Aberdeen last week his crew of
baseballists had met all the teams in
the league. He knows by this time the
strength and weakness of the oppos
ing teams and the pitchers his men
have to face, so from now on It should
be a matter of generalship.
Judging all 'of the teams that have
met Casey's Colts. It must be admitted
that those Seattle Turks are the most
formidable, and next to Seattle comes
Spokane, who will appear in Portland
next week for the first time. A lot of
fans looked upon the rush to the
front of the Seattle team as a flash In
the pan. These were not critical fans,
for Dugdale has surrounded himself
with a smart hall team, and with Mike
Lynch dogging at his heels, the fat
Seattle magnate had plenty of nne
material in reserve. While It Is true
Seattle fattened Its percentage column
right off the reel on Casey's Colts, and
this lead gave the team a world of
confidence. It Is no more than fair to
say that Seattle has been playing con
sistent and heady baseball ever since
the opening day. The big lead Seattle
has at the top of the percentage col
umn means a lot to the team and It
can take chances and get away with
them, that a team lighting out of the
cellar would not dare to attempt, for
If it did the luck of the game would
break against and not for It.
Casey Will Xow Climb.
It may sound like carping a bit to
say that with any kind of baseball
lu'-k. Manager Casey and his crew
would have been camping close up to
Seattle's figures. When the season
opened Casey found himself woefully
weak In the outfield and behind the
bat. Swanton was an utter failure
In the outfield and for a time It looked
ss if Carry was going to fall down.
The latter, since his home-coming, has
struck his stride and from now on
should Improve with every game.
Signing up frank Adams has strength
ened the team wonderfully. Ho hits
well. Is fast on the bases and with
Marty Murphy on the team. Casey Is
assured of a smashing good Infield at
all times. Adams Is an exceptionally
good third baseman and Murphy can
Jump in and play either third or first
What helped Casey and Is helping
him a lot is the exceedingly clever
work of Catcher Tommy Murra'y. Had
Murray been with Casey In the opening
series against Seattle. Dugdale would
not have been so' lucky. When Man
ager McCredle signed Murray he ex
pected great things from him. because
nls record as a catcher was good.
Murray's showing while he was with
the Coasters may have discouraged
Manager Mac, but if he has been dis
couraged he can forget It now. for no
catcher wearing a pad and mask Is
doing better work behind the plate
than Murray. Aberdeen has some fast
men on bases, but their attempts to
steal on Murray have resulted In their
being caught standing up. More than
once during the past series Murray
has sent the ball to second, where the
runner found It waiting his arrival.
Small Park Helps Seattle.
If Seattle Is to win the pennant, two
things are working In Its favor. First,
Manager Lynch has a good pitching
staff and a band of ballplayers who
can come from behind. Several men
wearing Seattle uniforms are capable
of breaking up a game at any old time
and once they start hitting a pitcher
It Is -Kitty. Bar the Door." The sec
ond and a very Important factor Is the
fact that Dugdale has so many games
at'home. Dugdale gets hot under the
collar when fun Is poked at his ball
park. Deep down, he knows the place
Is a Joke, yet It Is the best he can do.
at least for this season, so the rest of
the team must be satisfied. When it
came to making up the schedule the
fat mogul managed to ge 14 weeks
at home. Of course the tJay Seattle
fans are supporting the games gives
Dugdale the call and he is entitled to
the great number of games, for the
support of the league must come from
Portland. Seattle. Spokane and Van
couver. B. C Tacoma and Aberdeen
can't be depended upon to swell the
bank accounts of the visiting teams.
What money there Is to he made must
be made out of the four cities named.
Dugdale reaps the reward for being
located in such a good town as Seattle,
for he Is not only making the money,
but his team, knowing the park as
it does, has the double advantage.
Just how Seattle would fare with
a four weeks' Junket on the road Is
a question. So far It has had only a
week away from its own chicken yard.
It invaded Spokane and grabbed the
scries from Manager Brown's hard
hitting ball-tossers. so It would seem
as If Seattle, at home or abroad, was
capable of winning the major part of
the games. To see this happen I must
confess, surprised mc. not so mnrli
because Seattle was able to turn the
trick, as to see Brown's crew fall down
the way It did. for I figured Spokane
Just as strong In all departments of
the game as Seattle. After playing
against all of the teams In the league
I still figure It to be the best as the
teams now stand.
Seattle Plays In Lark.
Forecasting baseball Is like fore
casting the weather. Ton never can
tell.. Right now Seattle is going at
top speed and couldn't play better base
ball, or have the luck of the game
break better. Kvery player that Dug
dale decided to keep, or has added to
liis team, has turned out well. Take
McfJee. for Instance. Dugdale signed
him as utility because he was weak
on first base. McGee made good right
off the reel and the initial sacker.
Kennedy, whom Dugdale signed for
the position, has never got a chance
to show what he could do. His grab
king Dan Shea was another stroke of
C i a TWsrV S W t .
m r ? J
- ft ' ) - )
i-vry- il If rz"-T
luck. Dugdale wouldn't have signed
the Portland backstop but for Lynch.
Lynch, once he learned he could get
Shea, never let the fat manager rest
until he had Shea In uniform. Ho.
while Seattle is chuck a block with
good players, all other teams In the
league are scouting around for men to
fill In the gaps. Manager Casey Is
also In the scouting ranks, and should
the coming trip away from home prove
an unlucky one, several new men will
be added to his payroll.
Some of the local fans are of the
opinion that should Walter McCredle
set up a cry for help some of Casey's
men will be shifted over to the Coast
League team. Nothing is farther from
Judge MeCredle's mind. If Manager
McCredle needs to strengthen his team,
or If Casey is In need of help, there
will be no switching, but players wll
be brought from the East. It Is Judge
MeCredle's Intentlqn always to have
two pitchers remain at home and what
two these will be will depend upon now
well the whole bnnrh Is going at the
time either team takes the road. What
the McCredles want to do. If the thing
Is possible, is to win both pennants,
and If spending money, within reason,
can turn this trick, the fans can rest
assured Portland will come home with
both rags. Both seasons are still
young and there Is plenty of time to
get to the top before the final game Is
