Pitching is stingy on paper with Chris Short, the best lefty in the

to 15 wins, and Art Mahaffey, the greatest balk artist in baseball1
history. Jack Baldschun is the most consistent relief man in thet
Cincinnati has marvelous material, but seemingly lacks thef
drive to be a pennant winner. Frank Robinson and Vada Pinson4
have terrific natural ability but are far from inspirational players.
Jim Maloney has the best fastball in the majors and that in-
cludes Koufax. He should win between 21 and 4 games. The
infield is below par with a weakness at first base, a lackadaisical
Leo Cardenas at short, and a nonentity at third, probably Mich-
igan alum, Steve Bors. Pete Rose is solid at second but the toss
from second to first is considered to be a major heave for him.
San Francisco has Willie Mays which is enough to make it a
contender. Willie is the greatest ballplayer in the world, but if he
plays center field he can't pitch. This profound statement explains
why the Giants-can't win the pennant.
Juan Marichal, whose mechanical flinging motion closely re-
sembles that of a pitching machine, should win over 20, but Frisco
needs more arms. Ron Herbel and Bob Hendley are .500 pitchers and
Jack Sanford had a nine hour arm operation over the winter, so
don't expect many no-hitters from him.
Orlando Cepeda, Willie McCovey, and Jim Hart are enough to
make any pitcher decide to become a first baseman, but pitching
Milwaukee has titanic hitting, but its hurling is even weaker
than San Francisco's. Henry Aaron is a magnificent wrist hitter,
Joe Torre is the best catcher in the league, Rico Carty is .300 at the
plate, and Dennis Menke is the second best shortstop in the league.
At last count the Braves had sold 23 season tickets so it is possible
that there will be more vendors than fans at the game, and vendors
The Dodgers have pitching but Walt Alston will need a shutuot
every other day if he expects to win a penannt. The Dodgers will
probably hit less than a hundred homers and Don Drysdale might
lead the team-in the long ball. The infield is holey with Maury Wills
the only adequate fielder. The outfield has the Davis Boys and an
unnamed compatriot. Nothing to leave your feet about. Claude Osteen
could win 15, Koufax 30, Drysdale 18 and LA could still finish sixth.
The Cubs are my team. I've loved them since the Hank Sauer
era and I'm a much more rabid fan than Phil Wrigley. But cruel
objectivity tells me that the Cubs stink. Sure they have Billy
Williams, Ron Santo, Ernie Banks, and Larry Jackson, but you
don't go anywhere with a double play combination that even the
Mets laugh at. Bozo could be a better catcher than Dick Bertell,
and the Michigan Varsity probably has a better bench than the
Cubbies. I want to cry, but let us continue.
Pittsburgh has two players from the Caribbean that any team
would love to trade for-Roberto Clemente and Alvin McBean
Clemente, now sacked in with malaria, is the worst looking great
hitter in baseball. He does everything awkwardly at the plate and
bats .350. McBean is a splendid pitcher with fearsome sidearm stuff
who could win 20 if he starts.
But the Pirates are mediocre at most positions.
The Houston Astros are going to be playing under a dome in a
well lit stadium, thus they will be giving up the advantage they had
in their old park. In the past three years teams would play in the
park by candlelight. The archlights were so bad that only the Colts,
who were used to the dark, were able to hit. When the Astros see the
light their future will be gloomy.
The Mets are my adopted team. Any team which could boast of
such players as Hawk Taylor, Al Moran, and Cho Choo Coleman
wins your heart. And this year the WMets have rookies like Danny
Napoleon and Dick Selma. With names like Napolean and Selma you
know the Mets aren't going to ruin their image and become winners.
But Warren Spahn should give Casey and the Mets enough class to
beat out the Astros.
S Well,here are the final predictions. I'm sure you're on the
edge of your chair. Philadelphia, St. Louis, Cincinnati, San Fran-
