New Tork. June 17. It sure Is a mer
ry fight for the gonfalon In the Na
tlonal league this year, with th Giants,
Cubs, Phillies and Pirates In the load.
While It Is a foregone conclusion that
one of these teams will win- out, -the
man who can pick the leader among tha
quartette deserve a leather medal.
The Giant were picked as sure win
ners all over the country laat winter,
but the Cubs' new material has shown
up most promisingly and ao have Fred
Clarke' men. The great spurt of the
Quakers at first looked like just a flash
in the pan, but Charley Dooin has In
jected a lot of pepper Into their veins
and, if the pitching staff can stand the
burden Philadelphia fans may not hav
to leave their own town to witness th
world' championship ,erle next fall.
All Depend on Mug gay.
As I . only natural, local fans are
predicting that the pennant will surely
cometo this city. But I am- going to
tell you something about th Giant
without MoGraw at tha helm, they are
like that proverbial ship that is rudder
less. They play inside baseball from
start to finish, take advantage of every
bit of percentage and are a spry aa a
Futurity candidate whan ha I on th
bench or coaching; line to guld them.
But when h Is absent, they ar not
the same team by a long shot.
And this was clearly demonstrated In
the series of a fortnight, ago between
th Giant and Cuba In Chicago. While
the New Yorker broke even with the
Windy City aggregation, they should
have won all four of th games. Chi
