DAILY PROGNOSIS:
Orio les

outclass

By ANDY McLEAN
The role of a baseball man-
ager is to match current :eam
strengths to opponents' weak-
nesses and to assess future weak-
nesses in order to make the
trades and acquisitions to reme-
dy them. The best example of
such a manager is Baltimore's
Earl Weaver.
This year's Orioles are strong.
In all categories they are strong.
If you can imagine it, Brooks
Robinson and Boog Powell are
the team weak spots.
CY YOUNG winner Jim Pal-
mer returns to the mound for
the Birds to try to improve on a
22-9 and 2.40 ERA season last
year. With veterans Mike Cuel-
lar, Dave McNally and 1974
acquisition Ross Grimsley the

Satyrn

Orioles will have sound starters
on the mound. Relief pitching is
based on the superlative perfor-
mances of Bob Reynolds, ERA
1.86, and Grant Jackson, ERA
1.90.
Behind the plate Andy Etche-
barren and Earl Williams pro-
vide solid defense. Williams'
strong bat (22 homeruns and 83
RBI's) can also fill the line-up
at first base.
Aging Brooks Robinson and
poor hitting Boog Powell are the
question marks in an otherwise
sound infield. The bats of both
veterans were slow last season.
If Powell cannot return to form
Williams can, take his place.
AL BUMBRY, Rich Coggins,
and Don Baylor and DH Tommy
Davis provide a speedy, aggres-
sive attack that should bring the
Orioles out on top in '74.
Boston manager Darrell John-
son took his cue from Earl
Weaver. Through some sound
farm club acquisitions and some
trades to strengthen his pitching
staff, Johnson has come up with
a contender in the AL East.
Luis Tiant, Bill Lee, Rick Wise,
Diego Segui, and Juan Marichal
provide starting talent, with re-
lief help from Bob Bolin, Dick
Pole and Reggie Cleveland. Ex-
catcher Johnson has demonstrat-
ed his ability to improve pitchers
(Tiant was a 20-game winner
last year) and may help Mari-
chal back to form after back
troubles last year.
STAR BACKSTOP C a r I t o n
Fisk, despite a spring injury,
will see steady service though
hot - hitting B o b Montgomery

should play more than 34 games
this year.
Fleet - footed Tommy Harper
provides sparkle to a lackluster
outfield but he will be used most-
ly as a desiganted hitter.
Daily Consensus
1. Baltimore'
2. Boston
3. Milwaukee'
4. New York
5. Detroit
6. Clevelandr
If you want to see the Tigers
win, go when the Red Sox are in
town; the Bostonians dropped 14
of 18 to the Bengals last year.
However the Red Sox are a much
improved team and should give
the Oriolesta race for the play-
offs all through the season.
The Milwaukee Brewers,
though improved, will not have
enough stufff to stay in the race
for the whole season. The Beer-
makers should i m p r o v e their
record over last year, though.
Don Money and George Scott
will provide sound gloves and
strong bats but the infield will
be weak at shortstop. In the out-
field, Dave May and John Briggs
will do their thing but there
won't be much help from the
bench when Briggs and May
don't perform.
On the mound, 20-game winner
Jim Colburn returns along with
Jim Slaton and Clyde Wright but
the relief pitching may not be
there when the Brewers need it.
RALPH HOUK led the New

A.L.
York Yankees into mediocrity.
He doesn't have to do that for the
Tigers; they're already there.
The Tigers are getting old and
there won't be enough new faces
around to take up the slack. The
absence of Dick McAuliffe (now
with the Red Sox) will provide
an opening for rookie John Knox.
Ron Cash may be the only other
young face in an otherwise aging
infield.
Willie Horton, Mickey Stanley,
and Jim Northrup will again be
the mainstay Tiger outfield. Hor-
ton and Northrup are solid per-
formers while Stanley may be
there just to prove his glove is
good enough to outweigh his
anemic bat.
PITCHING IS the major ques-
tion mark for the Bengals. Can
righthander Lerrin LaGrow pro-
vide the pitching punch the Ti-
gers need? Solid performers Joe
Coleman and John Hiller will re-
turn with Mickey Lolich looking
to get back his 20 game winning
form.
In New York, Yankee Mana-
ger Bill Virdon will be looking
to plug the holes in his leaky in-

F~t
tas
field. Hot-hitting Graig Nettles
and late-summer pick-up Mike
Hegan hold down the corners on
an erratic and light-hitting in-
field.
All-star outfielder Bobby Mur-
cer and .329 hitting DH Ron
Blomberg return.
With no real sizzle on the
mound the Yankees may have
their only fun playing the Tigers
this season.
THE CLEVELAND Indians will
present brother act Jim and Gay-
lord Perry but it just won't be
enough. The Indians don't have
enough starting firepdwer to put
on the mound and this should
put them on the wrong end of
the score too many times this
year.
The infield should be the
Tribe's strong point this time
around with a comeback perfor-
mance from Frank Duffy at
short. With good performances
from Buddy Bell and Chris
Chambliss the Indians may sur-
prise some of their opponents,
but not enough to keep them-
selves out of the AL East base-
ment.

Sports of The Daily
Tigers, Birds open today
From wire Service Reports
BLTIMORE - The Baltimore Orioles, seeking their fifth
Ame Ican League division title in six years, open the 1974 base-
ball season at home today against the Detroit Tigers.
A crowd of 30,000 or more is expected in Memorial Stadium
for the 2 p.m., EDT, contest.
Baltimore was expected to start Jim Palmer, who won
last year's Cy Young pitching award in the American League
after posting a 22-9 record. Joe Coleman, 23-15 a year ago,
was named to open for Detroit.
Before they headed for the mound, however, Mayor Wil-
liam Donald Schaefer of Baltimore was to make the ceremonial
first ball pitch.
Fans attending the opener were to be presented a team pic-
ture of both the 1974 Orioles and the 1954 squad which brought
major league baseball back to the city. Members of the 1954
team are slated to be honored between games of Sunday's
doubleheader.
The Tigers will remain in Baltimore over the weekend to play
a single game Saturday and a doubleheader Sunday. Saturday's
game and Sunday's first game will be telecast over Channel 2
as the familiar voices of George Kell and Larry Osterman re-
turn to the airwaves. All the games, as usual, will be broadcast
over radio station WJR (760 AM).
Big Ten splits
A long standing Big Ten proposal became reality Wednesday
as Commissioner Wayne Duke revealed the conference had split
competition in six minor sports into east and west divisions. Ath-
letic Directors will meet Sunday to devise a five-year schedule
for each sport.
The sports affected by the new structure are baseball, track,
wrestling, swimming and tennis. In the case of baseball, winners
in each division will playoff for the conference title.
The East Division will include Michigan, Michigan State,
Indiana, Purdue and Ohio State. Illinois, Minnesota, North-
western, Iowa and Wisconsin will round out the West Di-
vision. According to Duke, the split was initiated to cut
transportation costs.
The commissioner also said that "for all practical purposes
the change would not be much of a departure from present sched-
uling except for baseball, since we haven't followed a true round-
robin schedule in the other sports."
Michigan coach Moby Benedict, who opposes the change,
stated, "I'm very much against it. Big Ten baseball coaches
voted 10-0 against it. We didn't want it-it's being forced."
Pistons, Bulls meet again
CHICAGO - The home court advantage which has fizzled
for both teams to date again goes to the Chicago Bulls against
the Detroit Pistons tonight in the third game of their National
Basketball Association Western Conference semifinal playoff
series.
The Bulls finally found shooting range at Detroit Monday
night, defeating the Pistons 108-103 after a low key perform-
ance in a 97-88 series-opening defeat on their own Chicago
Stadium court last Saturday.
Veteran Bull forward Chet Walker hoped that the home court
edge would be more meaningful this time, commenting "we
played more like ourselves in Detroit."
Noting the Pistons have shot .531 and .505 in splitting the
first two games, Walker asserted "I can't believe Detroit will
continue to shoot that well, although they have some terrific
shooters in their lineup.
"Bob Lanier is having a fantastic playoff for them with his
32.5-average."
Although the Pistons had a rash of turnovers and poor shot
selections in the final five minutes of the game at Detroit, Piston
coach Ray Scott didn't feel playoff pressure was grabbing his
club.
