Lack of Cohesion Re

By CHANDLER I). KICHTEIl
WHEN tho Chicago Whllo Sox got off

With n lead of flvo full gnmc.i going

slump the tenm wns In third place nnd

Sox did not look much better than the
second division teams, although thoy fin
Manager Rowland was accused of ruin
ing tho pitching staff. Ho wns voted a
fnlluro as a manager. It also wns re
ported that there was friction In the
rnnlts nnd that cither Eddio Collins or
Frank Isbell would pilot tho tenm this
season. Owner Comlsltoy quickly dis
pelled this rumor by nppolntlng Rowlnnd
manager for another year nnd by Issuing
a statement exonerating the new leader
from nil blnmo for the fnlluro of tho
team to win the pennant.
At tho recent meeting of tho American
League, Rowlnnd explained to tho writer
Just why tho Sox went to pieces, and his
explanation Is plaubiblo. He wns making
no attempt to alibi himself, or ho would
havo explained In Chicago last fall for tho
benefit of tho fans.
"Wo went to pieces last season because
we got such n good start nnd were going
too good early In tho season. Early In
the year we wore hitting hard and did
not need a lot of Inside stuff to win, but
when wo struck our batting Blump and

I attribute It to tho fact that tho players

so many different teams nnd wero used

impossible for them to quickly fall Into a.
"Wo might havo perfected our team
work by mldsoason If wo had not gotten
off to such a good start. When n team
is hitting nnd scoring a lot of runs, It
seems foolhardy for a manager to experi
ment with various styles of play. That
is the position I was In. At the closo of
the season wo were Just finding ourselves
nnd playing tho kind of ball that does not
make heavy hitting Imperative, though wo
did not look so good. Unless I miss my
guess, wo will start right where wo left
olt last fall, and the Sox will not go to
pieces tho first time they strike a batting
Rowland Is not claiming the pennant for
tho Sox, but declares he can seo no team
iu tho American League which looks as
strong, and If his pitching staff holds up
he will not have to make any explanation
Tho sudden collapso of tho outfield nnd
Hlackburne's failure to live up to expecta
tions at third baso wero other causes of
tho slump Inst season. Rowland believes
that ho will not bo troubled with weak
ness In theso positions this season. Tho
addition of Joo Jackson and Eddie Murphy
has solved tho outflold problem, while two
recruits and a veteran will try to plug tho
gap at third.
Pitchers Were Good
For years the Whlto Sox pitching staff
has been rated as one of the best in tho
country. If Its veterans do not start to
go back this hpring It should , even
stronger, ns tho addition of Williams, tho
Salt Lake wonder, tind Dave Dauforth,
tho strlko-out king, from Louisville, nnd
tho further development of Uiban Fabor
and Mel Wolfgang, will bolster up this

cent, of their games In the past nnd, us
neither has reached tho nge where they
should be going back, It is likely both will
star again. Russell, the Texas southpaw,
who was of llttlo value to Rowland last
season, Is duo for a great year. If he
don't start off well ho will be released, as
Rowland has lost patience with him.
Russell should weigh about 18C pounds
In perfect condition, but last Bprlng re
ported for spring training weighing 225
pounds. He found It Impossible to get
down to his normal weight, much less be
In shape to pitch. Had Russell been In
shape he might have carried tho team
over the slump. Ho Is a great pitcher
and an "Iron man," and his absence was
There Is a chanco that Ed Walsh may
bo of some use to Rowland this season.
The veteran can hardly be oxpected to
take his regular turn on tho mound, but
his experience and knowledge of batsmen
may prove of great value for relief pitch
ing and to help out when the double
headers come thick and fast.
Sclialk n Marvel
With the wonderful Ray Schalk to do
practically all the catching, the Whlto
Sox have a decided edge on uny team
In tho league In this department. If
Schalk can keep free of Injuries, the
pitchers ure not likely to go to pieces
wKIt this brilliant youngster behind the
Mayer, the second catcher, Is a capable
receiver In every way and above the
average. He gets little chance to work
with Schalk on the same team, but Is a
handy man to have nround. The sale of
Daly leaves the third position open, with
threo recruits fighting for the place.

to hit American League pitching, Four

should fall, he will be more valuable than

The peerless Eddie Collins, king of sec
ond basemen, will be at his old position,
and will captain the team, Eddie had a
great season In a team which was shot
to pieces after the middle of June and he
should be even better this year, as team
play, which Is his forte, will be developed
before the race starts.
Fight for tPosltlons
The shortstop and third-base positions
depend entirely upon the showing of the
candidates for third base. George Mor
larty, the veteran, who was purchased
from Detroit, believes that ha can All the
post left vacant by the release of Black
burne, while Fred McMullen, purchased
from San Francisco, cornea highly rec
ommended. If both Morlarty and McMullen fall to
Impress Rowland, Buck Weaver will be
shifted to third, a position he plays well,
