While It really seem a little early
to start dishing out winter dope to
the baseball fans yet next to th
world's series the next topic of In-
terest to the bug la tha relative
strength of tha major league club
for the season of 1914. And after
carefully looking over the pennant
race of thl year and studying tha In-
dividual player one find that the
(Hants and Athletic do not loom up
aa favorite for the coming seaaon.
The Giants and Athletic at mid-
season were looked upon a the pen-
nant winner fur 1113. Why? Be-
cause the two team ware going good
while the Quaker and Senator war
In a slump due to the fact that many
of their players were either on the
hospital list or wer injured to auch
an extent that they were not capable
of playing to form.
Next Season's Outlook.
Unless Philadelphia meets with
such misfortune a to cripple th team
materially they should be returned

ened by the Hignlng of several fast

tion of Camuitz to the pitching siaff

answer to the argument that th Ron-

w Ise on point to the record of such
men as Jamas J. Corbstt. who was
meeting such fast company In his
seventh battle as ths wondsrful Jake
Kllrain and was made ths champion
of the world in his sixteenth.
J. J. Jeffries ths California heavy-
weight was going agalnat such men
as Ods Knhlln in his third time out.
Jeff cleaned th world's champion
who at that time was Bob Eltxslm-
mons. In his tenth try at profssslonal
battles. From the looks of these rec-
ords ring experience did not ooant
