BIG LEAGUE GOSSIP
By CHRISTY MATHEWSON
Oa THE NEW YORK GIANTS
(Copyright 1(11 by Wheeler Syndi-
cate.) Cincinnati Ohio. Aug. 14. Lots of
things can and have happened In the
last week. The 'Pittsburgh club won
the first series from the Giants that
the Pirates have taken on their home
grounds In mldseaeon since 1110. The
New York club has been dismantled
by Injuries and Illness since we left
home. Two pitchers Marquard add
Mathewson were not aa good as they
had been In some of their last starts.
Mathewson was much worse in fact
In his last one.
"Old Doc" Crandall has been traded
to St. Louis for "Larry" McLean; and
the Injury to Meyers was largely re-
sponsible for this action becauso Mr-
Graw wanted a hard-hitting catcher
at this stage of the race. It Is with
genuine regret that the members of
the team see Crandall pass along. He
was one of the best liked men on the
club big hearted easy going and gen-
ial. He has also done a great doal
for the Giants since he has belonged.
McGraw has squelched the golfing
tendencies of several of his players
who took up the game recently In-
cluding the author rtf this piece. The
club Is In the doldrums as far as hit-
ting goes and Is as near a general
slump as It has been since It struck
Its stride two months ago.
"Morning prsctlce for all hands and
everybody In uniform as soon as we
get home" announced McGraw on
the train while we were going from
Pittsburgh to Cincinnati after losing
that second battle to the Plratea "We
can't afford to slump now."
A slump Is something that attacks
a ball club from nowhere and van-
ishes Into nowhere but sometimes it
Is very hard causing it to vanish. Like
typhoid fever you nover know when
you pick up the germ whether In an
oyster or In the change of milk. The
club was going fine In Chicago. We
evidently accumulated the germ In
It Is lucky that we came Into Cin-
cinnati Just aa we did and Philadel-
phia had to battle the Cubs. The
Urdu have always been a tonic for us.
It has surprised me the way Philadel-
phia has hung on this trip. After that
team split wide open and lost ten
games out of eleven a few weeks ago
I thought the Quakers were done for
the season. I expected to see either
Pittsburgh or Chicago pass them.
They have caught their feet at the
early season pace on this trip but
Dootn Is again working his two star
pitchers hard and I do not look to
see the clab hold It for two months
more. They will probably break un-
der the strain of the hard going an
they did earlier. Still there Is a dis-
tinct race In the Nutlonnl league now
and the Phillies are fired with the no-
tion they are going to catch us and
are playing great hall. I expect the
Ulants will open up the gap again
when we return to the home grounds.
but this cannot be counted upon too
We still have eight games to plsy
with tho Phillies und we appear to
possess a little edge on them this year.
If It comes down to a drive for the
wire. We should take the champion-
ship on thse hand-to-hand conflicts
alone. Both contenders finish the
season on the road swinging through
the western part of the circuit hut
the Quakers have developed more
atrength on the road than at home

lately. This Is no great encourage-
ment for the Giants. Tne New York
pitchers have got to get back to work
and the batter must hit. McGraw Is
impressing this on tnem with dally
Personally I am off dieting and
golf. My stomach had been bothering
me a little bit In Chicago probably
from the extreme heat In St. Louis. I
tried milk toast and other simple
things for It but found these did not
give me. the nourishment I needed.
1 felt weak In that game with the Pi-
rates when they beat me to 1 and
went after a stead Immediately after-
wards. These diets may be all right
for the poetical profession but they
don't do for a base ball pitcher. Do
not think I am trying to allhl mvself
out of that defeat because the Pitts-
burgh team pounded me good and
hard and I concede It.
The Athletics have worn some of
the edge off their form In the long
campaign and have not been going so
well recently as In the first part of
season but they are In little dan-
ger of losing the pennant according to
my style of doping It. If the Wash-
ington team was up where the Cleve-
land club Is at present there might
be danger of an upset. The Senators
are a steadier crowd I believe and
they are better off for pitchers than
the Napa. They also hustle all the
time. Johnson Boehllng and Engel
are a formidable trio now but the
Washington team la too far behind.
There also have been rumors of
trouble In the Cleveland ranks ever
Sinn- Lajole refused to be benched by
Birmingham. It Is persistently said
that the club Is divided Into factions
and that Lajole Is still u trifle sore
over the treatment he received.
Internal disorder has hurt several
clubs this season. It was the disor-
ganization resulting from disputes
which caused the Boston Red Sox to
make such a poor showing so I am
told while It Is no secret that "John-
ny" Evers fragile nervous "Johnny"
has had all kinds of trouble during his
first year out as a big league mana-
ger. It was but recently that "John-
ny" got Into an argument on the field
with "Tommy" Iieach for a bast run-
ning play and It was only the quick-
ness of the other players In Interven-
ing that preevnted a scrap. Evers has
had a tough season. The fans in Chi-
cago felt none too kindly toward the
Cubs when the schedule began after
the deal Chance received. Evers has
been fighting all kinds of odds since
he took hold until his sensitive nerves
are worn to a fragile fringe.
The Injuries which bothered the
Giants on this trip are not 6f a fatal
nature. "Chief" Meyers will be miss-
ed of course but he had been worst-
ing ateadlly anyway and he need-
ed rest. Wilson Is a great substitute.
He Is so good a catcher that on most
any other club he would be first string
man. McLean Is a hard hitter and
will doubtlers spilt the duties with
Wilson. Doyle Is ready to go back In
the game although he still limps a
little hit. McGraw Is almost himself
after having the attack of stomach
trouble In Chicago. Shafer is In con-
dition to work once more now.
McGraw Is scouring around for an-
other good outfielder. If any of the

after Poacher the fast gardener of
the Cincinnati Reds but Tiner refuses
to part with him unless he receives
most of the. Giant team In return.
Tinker met McGraw In both St. Louis
and Chicago. He watched the Giants
play several games which worried a
lot of the boys.
Trades are difficult things to make.
Both sides always want the heat of It
naturally as In driving another bar-
gain. McGraw Is very anxious to ob-
tain a new outfielder hut he does not
Intend to make any sacrifices to get
one. In a pinch Shafer can he moved
to the outfield and Hersog Inserted
at third base. This does not weaken
the Infield at all and the Giants would
still have a strong outfield with Shaf-
er In It. Therefore McGraw Is not
going to give anything away to get
a new outfielder but he Is after one
In a fair trade.
In Cincinnati here I heard of a new
batting alibi. A hatting alibi Is the
excuse that a player makes because
ho cannot hit the liall. A pitching
alibi Is the reason a pitcher does not
win the ball game if you hear him tell
It. A certain player on the Cincinnati
team failed to get a hit In the game
"What's the matter?" Tinker bark-
ed at him In the last Inning after he
had been to the plate. "Can't you
see the ball?"
"No" he replied. "I went to one
of those moving picture shows last
night and they always hurt my eyes.
I'll never go In one again."
That Is new stuff In the allhl line
to me. They told me when I men-
tioned It that there are a lot of um-
pires who will not go near a moving
picture theater. ' Silk" O'Loughlln Is
on this list.
" I call the shows eye tonlo" one
"umps" told me today.
Personally I never saw much about
the movies to hurt my eyes except
perhaps the looks of some of the ac-
tors. John Coombs has rejoined the Ath-
letics. Whether Coombs will bo nblo
to pitch any good games this year 1
still a question about which "Connie"
Mack Is doubtless doing a lot of won-
dering. If Coombs could get fit to
work In one of the battles of the
world's series. It would give the Ath-
letics a much better chance. Other-
wise Mack will be forced to depend
entirely upon his only two veterans.
Plank and Bender. It Is unlikely ho
would start a recruit. Mack Is nurs-
ing Coombs along slowly with the
hope that he run get this man. who
has had the experience and who pos-
sesses the self-confidence acquired In
two world's series fit to appear.
Coombs has never lost a world's
series decision. He was taken nut of
a game In ltll when he strained him-
self. He Is a wonderful pltoher and
would be Invaluable to the Ahtletlcs
In these games especially If the se-
ries ran Into several contests. He
pitched on the opening game of this
season but felt so weak he had to
quit. Ho asked for a chance to work
the next day and again had to give
It up. He went to bed Immediately
after the game with typhoid fever and
has been laid up ever since. He has
boon working on his farm In Kenne-
bunk. Maine since he has been con-
valescent. In an effort to condition
hiniself but It Is doubtful If he has
regained all his strength. Somebody
askod Mack recently which pitcher
was the best he had.
