Leach
to start
for Tigers
LAKELAND (AP)- Rick Leach,
completing the transition from quar-
terback at the University of Michigan
to professional baseball player, was
named the Tigers' first baseman
yesterday by Manager Sparky Ander-
son.
Leach, a 24-year-old who bats and
throws left-handed, has been the
Tigers' best hitter in spring training,
despite playing with a sore arm which
prevented him from throwing for more
than a week. ,
His two-for-four performance in
Thursday's 8-3 victory over the Toronto
Blue Jays gave Leach a .516 batting
average for the exhibition season.

NEW YORK- "The Magic Is Back,"
and "The Magic Is Real" have been the
New York Mets slogans for the last two
years. And it will take two more years
for the Mets to be ready to win. They
have an awesome outfield of Mookie
Wilson, George Foster, and Ellis Valeh-
tine, but a weak infield and weak pit-
ching staff.
Right now the Mets do not have, a
double play combination,nwithaonly
Hubie Brooks and Dave Kingman

Craig Swan, Randy Jones, Pat
Zachry, and Mike Scott should not wjin
many games, although reliever Nei
Allen (18 saves) is a fine performer.
John Stearns is only an adequate cat-
cher.
PITTSBURGH- The Pittsburgh
Pirates are another victim of weak pit-
ching and no double-play combination.
However, if there is to be one surprise
team in baseball this year, look for it to
be the Pirates.
The outfield is still strong with Omar
Moreno, Dave Parker, and Mike Easler
and Lee Lacey alternating in leftfield.
At first base the Pirates have a trio of
Willie Stargell, Jason Thompson and
Gary Alexander, and at third base is
the Major League's 1981 batting cham-
pion Bill Madlock (.341).
The starting pitchers will be Jim Bib-
by, Don Robinson, Eddie Solomon and
Rick Rhoden. Kent Tekulve, Rod
Scurry and Enrique Rome ate the
relievers. Behind the plate is future
superstar Tony Pena.
CHICAGO- Sorry Cubbie fans, your
team has nothing that will enable it to
climb out of the cellar. Dallas Green
has a complete rebuilding job to tackle,
including the pitching staff, infield and
outfield. Bill Buckner will once again
have a successful season, but the name
of the game is pitching. En Francais,
l'Expos gagnerA.
