Unless somebody cuts the legs

their catchers. The Dodgers,
slated for third, have Messer-
smith-less pitching and question-
able hitting.
The Atlanta Braves acquir-
ed some fine players, such as
Ken Henderson, Jim Wynn
and Roger Moret. Moret will
have to switch from reliever
to starter, and should he do
so successfully, the Braves
will have the best starting
pitching that they've had in
years.
The San Diego Padres will
give the Braves a battle for
fourth place, and with some
luck could end up at the top of
the second division. In all prob-
ability, however, Randy Jones
and Company will end up fifth.
Houston's Astrodome will be

the National League's Western
basement again this year, as the
Astros made some more of their
annual stupid trades, like un-
loading Milt May.
Looking at the Reds starting
eight players, one can see noth-
ing but an awesome array of
stars. Joe Morgan, the NL's
MVP, stole 67 bases, slammed
17 homers, walked 132 times,
scored 107 runs, won a Gold
Gloveaat second base, batted
.327, and had 94 RBI's. lEven' if
a team gets him to go 0-5 on the
day, they have to contend with
three other .300 hitters, plus
Johnny Bench and Tony Perez.
The Reds pitching staff has
always had a bad reputation
over the past few years. Al-
though Cincinnati starters only

completed 22 games, the com-j
bined staff ERA was 3.37,
third best in the League.
Sparky "Captain Hook" An-
derson had plently of good rea-
sons to go to his bullpen. The
two best are Rawly Eastwick
and Will McEnaney, who have
an average age of 24% years
old, combined to save 37 games,
plus a total record of 10-5.
Speed, in Morgan, Ken Grif-
fey and Dave Concepion; de-
fense, in Morgan, Cesar Geroni-
mo and Bench; hitting in every-
body; and pitching in Don Gul-
lett - the Reds have it all.
They might not win 108 games
again this year, but they should
have no problem being in the
play-offs this October.
The acquisition of Ken Reitz
to play third base, makes the
San Francisco Giants solid.
Along with him, they have Chris
Speier at short, Derrel Thomas
at second and Willie Montanez
at first. Defensively and offen-
sively, the Giants boast one of
the best infields in baseball.
The outfield is also strong.
Gary Matthews, Von Joshua
and Bobby Murcer are all
proven major league outfield-
ers, on the brink of stardom.
According to most Murcer has
already reached that plateau.
Catching is a definite weak{
spot. Dave Rader hit .288, butl
he cannot field. The others,I
Marc Hill and Mike Sadek can
field, but have problems hitting.
The Giants have good, butl
young pitchers. 1975 Rookie of
the Year, John Montefusco has
an excellent chance to win 20
games. Jim Barr is capable of
coming close to that mark.
There are plenty of other
young pitchers, enough so, that
at least one will be able to help
out Montefusco and Barr take
the Giants to a second place
finish.
Don Sutton of the Los Angeles
Dodgers is not happy being in
L.A., but he is still around.
Unfortunately, Andy Messer-
smith took off. He may come

wtS
back, but the Dodgers cannot
fcount on him.
Sutton is the new leader of
the staff, and combined with
Doug Rau, Burt Hooton, Char-
lie Hough, Al Downing and
Rick Rhoden, the Dodgers
have a better than average
pitching staff. With Messer-
smith, Mike Marshall and
Tommy John the Dodgers have
a great pitching staff.
Marshall, Michigan State's
favorite, seems to be more con-
cerned with practicing in East
Lansing than playing in Chavez
Ravine. Sooner or later he'll
be ready to go, but until then
Charlie Hough will be the bull-
pen fireman.
Tommy John was 13-3 in 1974
when he injured his elbow. He
did not pitch at all in the majors
last year.
To add to the confusion of the
pitching staff, the Dodgers hit-
ting is up in the air. Bill Buck-
ner, Joe Ferguson and Bill Rus-
sell had injury plagued seasons
last year. For the Dodgers to
give the Reds and Giants a run,
the forementioned three, plus
mainstays Steve Garvey and
Ron Cey must perform well.
The Dodgers also gave up
slugger Jimmy Wynn and ob-
tained Dusty Baker to replace
him. Baker has the talent to
become a full-fledged star on
the West Coast.
Atlanta has Phil Niekro and
Carl Morton as solid starting
pitchers. One more, such as
Moret, could actually make the
Braves competitive, especially
with Wynn and Henderson to add
class to the ballclub.
The Padres are coming on, but
still need more than Jones, Gene
Locklear and Dave Winfield.
Houston has a possible reborn
star in Cesar Cedeno, if he can
get hold of his brain. Other than
that, the Astros have little' to
offer.

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Star fullback
Larry Csonka leaped back to the
National Football League yes-
terday, signing with the New
York Giants.
The announcement by the
Giants last night ended a bidding
war for the one-time Dolphin
star and returned to the NFL
the biggest name the WFL ever
had.
THE TERMS of Csonka's con-
tract with the Giants were not
immediately known, but it was

known that he-or his agent, Ed
Keating-had been demanding a
multi-year contract worth some-
thing in the neighborhood of
$250,000 a year plus a variety
of cash bonuses and fringe
benefits.
There had been speculation
that Csonka, who played for only
half a season with the WFL's
Memphis Southmen before the
league went bankrupt and fold-
ed, would return to Miami. But
on Tuesday, Dolphins' principal
owner Joe Robbie said Csonka's
price was too high.
