Trade s galore ...
.. and hopes soar
GATHERING around the proverbial "hot stove", baseball fans
manage to ignore the intricacies of the NFL playoff format
or the standings in the Clarence Campbell Conference when the
major league moguls gather for the annual winter meetings.
Never mind that the hometown favorites finished 43 games be-
hind. Diehard fans hope for the emergence of a Joe Hardy or
the acquisition of a .330 hitting outfielder in exchange for the
second string catcher.
Even more than spring training, the cold days of December
inspire thoughts of pennant races and hope for the salvation of
even the sorriest of franchises.
The Detroit Tigers, one of the sorrier teams, desperate-
ly need a catcher and about a half-dozen pitchers. So the big
Bengal supporters harbor hopes of duping some rival general
manager into taking Mickey Stanley in exchange for a Cesar
Cedeno or Nolan Ryan.
Reports were flying around that catcher Bob Boone of the
Phillies was on his way to Detroit for such stalwarts as Stanley
Bill Freehan, Jim "Sting" Ray, and Bill Slayback.
There were many rumors as to why the deal fell through,
including one that the Phillies balked when Tiger general man-
ager Jim Campbell insisted that they take Luke "Fluke" Walker
off their hands also.
In reality, teams cannot build themselves into contenders
via trades unless they have a surplus of talent at a particular
position and a hole to fill elsewhere.
However, baseball trades have the distinct advantage of
involving people. It seems that most trades in football and
basketball involve draft choices over the next decade rather
Here is a not so far-fetched example of a football
"trade": The Houston Oilers sent backup defensive tackle
Sylvester "Sly" McIntyre to-the Washington Redskins for the
Skins sixth and seventh round draft picks in 1979 and re-
versed places in the 1980 and 1981 draft order, if favorable
to the Oilers.
Fans find it tough to identify with such deals or conversej
about them at length over a few cold ones. Tuesday, the Mets
sent relief pitcher Tug McGraw and outfielders Don Hahn and
Dave Schneck to Philadelphia for pitchers Mac Scarce, catcher
John Stearns, and outfielder Del Unser.
Outside of Unser and McGraw, the other fellows involved
aren't exactly household words, but a couple of National League
fans can find plenty to talk about. Here is part of their conver-
Fan A - Well that really helps the Mets in center field. They
Have always needed somebody there and Unser fits the bill.
Fan B - But I don't know about getting rid of McGraw. That
really hurts us in the bullpen. This Scarce was pretty good a
couple of years ago but he stunk last year.
Fan A - Schneck and Hahn are worthless so that's good
that we got rid of them. Stearns is supposed to be their best
catching prospect. Grote is getting old and he'll help us outj
in the future.
And so it goes. The Tigers probably won't get anybody to
catch, but I understand Tony Oliva is available and the Tigers
really don't have any left-hand hitters. Do the Twins have any
use for Freehan?

Farrell said. He commented on

FARRELL emphasized that
Doug has "tremendous poten-

of the National Hockey League
drafted Tom in the 1974 Ama-
teur draft, evidently impressed
by his college hockeyperform-
ance to date.

the Lindskog brothers are an in-
teresting pair. Both Tom and
Doug are Canadians, and hail
from the city of Red Deer, Al-
berta, where they played all

Doug is taking pre-business
"There's a lot of work to do,"
says Tom, "and when I'm play-
ing hockey, it really getsf

easy going person than Tom,
says: "I manage to slide by."
As for the change in life-
styles from Canadian to Ameri-
can Tom and Doug really don't
think there is that great a dif-
a couple of years, he'll be the
best coach in the league."
AS FOR THE team, both
brothers see a bright future.
"We're starting to come into
our own as a team," Tom
stated, "and before I leave
Michigan, I want to be on a na-
tional championship team."
. Doug Lindskog was more posi-
tive in his estimation of the
team. "We've got a lot of
depth and balance this year,
and so far I have not seen a
better team than us.'
This year's edition of Michi-
gan hockey may or may not
win a national championship,
but if it does, count on Tom
and Doug Lindskog having some
say in the matter.

CHICAGO-The Big Ten re-
vised yesterday its controversial
Rose Bowl selection procedure
but sidestepped any action on
sending a conference football
team to any other bowl game.
The conference faculty repre-
sentatives and athletic directors,
at the league's winter meeting,
approved a new method for
selecting a Rose Bowl delegate
which practically eliminates a
conference vote. The vote pro-
cedure resulted in Ohio State's

With Coach Newt Loken heading into his
twenty-eighth year as head coach, one can
only expect from him what he has always
given Michigan gymnastics followers - ano-
ther winning season.
Since gymnastics achieved varsity status
back in 1948, Loken has guided the tumblers
to a 194-34 duel meet record, two NCAA
titles in gymnastics and two NCAA titles in
trampoline, and has won eleven of the last
fourteen Big Ten Team titles.
1975 could be Loken's year. The enthus-
iastic Wolverine mentor hopes to earn his
200th duel meet victory, among other goals
such as a Big Ten championship.
Coming off a spotless 8-0 duel meet re-
cord last season, Michigan's tumblers
should attain equal success as graduation
did little to hamper the Wolverine's chanc-
A new rule may help Michigan's chances
even more. This year, instead of just three
men out of the five counting toward team
points for each event, four men's scores will
count toward team points. This should move
the average team score for a meet from
around 160 points to around 200.
As a result of the rule change, depth
will play a key role in determining a team's
success. A team must have two strong all-
around men to score well in each event.
With an impressive crop of all-arounders,
Loken feels that Michigan will benefit from
the rile change.
A breakdown of the Michigan squad by
event looks like this:
" In the all-around competition the Wol-
verines are blessed with exceptional depth.
Co-captain Bruce Keeshin leads a crew
which includes seniors Bruce Medd and
Jean Gagnon; juniors Richard Bigras and
Bob Darden; and freshmen Harley Danner,
Jon Udell, and Sam Roberts.

Randy Sakamoto, a junior, and sophomore
Chuck Stillerman. Loken maintains that Sak-
amoto and Stillerman are more than capable
of filling the gap created by the graduation
of J. P. Boichard.
ring man in Monty Falb, and Loken rezrs his
hopes on junior Joe Neuenswander, sopho-
more Scott Ponto and transfer student Kurt
Golder. Neuenswander placed third out of
160 competitors in last week's tournament.
" Vaulting appears to be one of Michigan's
strongest events. Big Ten champion Richard
Bigras heads the crew which includes all-
arounders Gagnon and Medd. Loken said
that this is one area where he expects the
freshmen such as Carl Badger to add neces-

gan's strongest event. Junior Bob Darden
and co-captain Carey Culbertson, both Big

* Finally, Michigan sports an excellent
crop of trampoline specialists this year. Na-
tional champion Mason Kauffman and his
brother John head perhaps the strongest
trampoline team in the country. Mike Rowe
and Luke Sullivan also bolster the squad.
The big problem for Michigan now is in-
juries, as several key players suffer
from various ailments. Co-captain Culbert-
son is recovering from a broken wrist,
Gagnon suffers from severe shoulder tend-
onitus, and Sakamoto is plagued by an
ankle injury, just to name a few.
"If we can just get over these nagging
injuries than we can make a true evalua-
tion of the team," a worried Loken said.
But time seems to be on Michigan's side.
The Wolverine tumblers have one more
tournament before the Christmas break, in
the Windy City Invitational to be held this
weekend in Chicago. This gives the Wolver-
ines about a month to rest and recover from
these injuries before heading into the duel
meet season in January.
