“No use speaking, Joe, we appear to be at the toboggan,” remarked Jim Barclay, one of many first string pitchers of the large workforce, to his closest pal, Joe Matson; as they got here out of the clubhouse on the Chicago baseball park and strolled over towards their dugout within the shadow of the grandstand.
“You’re correct, previous boy,” agreed Joe—“Baseball Joe,” as he was once identified by means of the fanatics all around the kingdom. “We appear to be headed immediately for the cellar championship, and at present expense it won’t be lengthy sooner than we land there. I can’t inform what’s obtained into the men. probably I’m as a lot in charge as any of the remainder of them. I’ve misplaced the final video games I pitched.”

You had everything—speed, curves, regulate, and that outdated fadeaway of yours used to be operating like a appeal. however the boys performed in the back of you're keen on loads of sand-lotters. they just threw the sport away—handed it to the Cubs on a silver platter. What they did within the box was once a sin and a disgrace. And whilst it got here to batting, they have been even worse. the house run and triple you pasted out your self have been the single clouts worthy mentioning.”
“The boys do appear to have misplaced their batting eyes,” agreed Joe. “And in terms of fielding, they’re all thumbs. What do you think that the difficulty is?”

It regarded as if we have been going to head during the League like a prairie hearth. however the rapid we struck the West we went down with a sickening thud. Pittsburgh wiped up the earth with us. The Reds walked all over the place us. The Cubs within the final video games have given us the razz. We’re starting to appear like whatever the cat dragged in.”
