George A. Holmes Picks the
Boston American To Win
World's Series
By George B. Holmes.
Xew York, Oct. 1. On plain, un
Tarnished "dope" the Red Sox from
Ibis comparatively' early viewpoint,
Mack up stronger than the Phillies in
the coming world 's clash, and probably
will, barring injuries, go into the
October classic as big a favorite as ever
did the Mackmen over the Giants, or
the Mackmen over the Braves.
It wasn't luck that gave Bill Car
rigan a pennant winner this year. It
was plain ordinary grit, plua a couple
of tons of sheer fighting, and some rat
tling, good consistent baseball . No
manager ever faced a April getaway
with a stiffer field to fight against
than did this same Bill Carrigan.
Chicago's new sadly crumpled White
Pox, reinforced by the meteoric Collins
at second, and with a chucking staff
reckoned to be the class of the circuit,
started well and sot the pace until
June, when they bad been squelched,
a new ogre rose to confront the Boston
mentor the Tigers. And it was some
ogre. Cobb was playing the best base
ball of his scintillating career. Craw
ford was slugging with all his old-time
power, Veach was playing like a fiend,
and Jennings had an infield his first
since 1909. All this array of power waB
backed up with a. fair pitching staff.
But Bill Carrigan came through.
When the time came for a "crucial"
series like the recent one with the
Tigers at Boston, which really gave his
men the pennant he went out and won
games. There was no cracking under
the strain.
Boston has worked its way into tbe
Big Tilt through the classiest field that
ever represented Ban Johnson's loop.
The Phillies have won a pennant from a
field tbat probably is the weakest that
ever represented the National Circuit,
Bnd that's taking no credit away from
Pat Moran, either, becnuse he deserves
all the roses than be shied at his red
Both the favorites in the National
laguo dropped by the wayside. The
Giants never were in the hunt, and the
Braves, handicapped by injuries and
suspensions, put up a game, but futile,
fight. Brooklvn threatened for a while,
but their opposition was not of the
steady variety. The i'hillies Haven't
slaved flashy ball. They dismayed a
flash to take the lead early in .the sea
son, but since then have played fifty
fifty ball, content in the belief that
their enemies didn't have the stuff for
a spurt that would overtake them. They
were right, for had either the Braves
or Superbag possessed a drive of any
power at all, the Phils could have been
unseated at almost any stage of the
And because of this because Bill Car
rigan 's clan has fought Ub way to a
pennant through a bunch of hand clubs
while Moran has had comparatively
easy sailing because of this, the Amer
ican League entry will, barring unfor
seen events, go into the scries a favor
ite, if for no other reason.
