SIAN A Daily spdrts analysis
What's the best division in baseball? If one listens to the

appear vinced that the American League East, that aggregation of Brew
dJ0406 Crewers, Bronx Bombers, and Red Sockers et al, is by far the
cream of the major league crop.
I've got some bad news for all of those deluded souls over in the
AL. The best division in hardball these days is the National League
East. That's the senior circuit, people, not the little league.
0. Can Why do I maintain this? The answer is simple. Of the last four
dM0410 World Series winners, three hail from the NL East. Since divisional

Daily to East this year? Sorry Cardinal fans, no repeat this season. The title
dM0405 of the best of the best will go to the Montreal Expos. Let's see how.
-Haul to MONTREAL - The Expos are loaded, again. This time, however,
ve room
Sunday there will be no August swoon. Bill Virdon is on hand to see to that.
dMtfc Virdon replaces nice guy Jim Fanning, who was unable to
capitalize on Les Expos talent-laden squad last season.
The pitching stafful is probably the best in the division. Steve
Rogers, Bill Gullickson, Scott Sanderson, and Charlie Lea provide
the starting punch, but the Expos lack a real stopper in an other-
wise above-average bullpen.,
There is, of course, offensive firepower. Al Oliver, Gary Carter,
Andre Dawson and Tim Raines supply that. If Terry Francona
rebounds from the knee injury that interrupted his phenomenal fir-
cPtc st year, the Expos could make it a runaway.
ST. LOUIS - Everything fell right into place last year for the Car-
NT. ds. Bruce Sutter could do no wrong when he came into a tight game,
Willie McGee always hit a double, Lonnie Smith always led off the
n house game with a single, stole second and scored when George Hendrick
ect 805- always drove him in.
22L0407 Obviously, these men have a great talent, and when Keith Her-
nandez, Darrell Porter, Joaquin Andujar, and Bob Forsch are ad-
ded, the team takes on an aura of greatness. However, this season,

the aura will not be great enough to overcome the Expos' speed and
pitching.
PHILADELPHIA - This is the Phillies' 100th anniversary, and it
seems like the majority of the Phils on this year's squad were
around for the inaugural game at Recreation Park back in 1883. Six
Phillies are over 35 years of age. This doesn't mean they aren't any
good.
Steve Carlton heads the list of old-timers. If he continues at his
present pace, the big lefthander will win his 300th career game
sometime in August. Pete Rose is another geriatric. This year, he

will be joined by former Cincinnati teammates Tony Perez, and
Joe Morgan. The three will try to relive old times by winning the -
World Series. Don't count on anything but a lot of wheezing and a
third place finish in Philadelphia this year.
PI'TSBURGH - Why fourth place for this team? Too many things
have to go right for them. Dave Parker has to show that he can play
baseball again, now that he has lost his excess baggage; Jim Bibby
has to recover from his torn rotator cuff and pitch like he did two
'years ago; and Chuck Tanner must find a capable replacement for
departed center fielder Omar Moreno.
If all of this goes right, the Bucs will be dynamite. John "Horse,
Face" Candelaria and Don Robinson pitched very well last season
and their success should continue this campaign. Kent Tekulve is a
monster out of the bullpen, and Jason Thompson, Bill Madlock,
Mike Easler, and Johnnie Ray are enough to scare any pitcher to-
death. Add these guys to successful comebacks by Bibby and
Parker and Pittsburgh will win the division. Don't bank on it.
CHICAGO - The Cubs enter phase two of their new tradition; con-
struction with a solid foundation. The addition of Ron Cey to the
power of Bill Buckner and Leon "Bull" Durham will help Chicago
immensely. Youngsters such as Keith Moreland, Ryne Sandberg
and Mel Hall must turn in spectacular performances to offset the
lack of starting pitching on 1 days Ferguson Jenkins doesn't pitch.
There should be some exciting baseball played at Wrigley Field
this year, and for once it will be by the Cubs.
NEW YORK - What can be said abbut the Mets? Nothing. The
Magic was back last year and it didn't do much good, because it
was still the Mets playing on the Shea Stadium turf. Manager
George Bamberger has no starting pitching after Tom Seaver, and
we all know what kind of year he had last season.
Offensively, New York is a little better. George Foster was really
bad last season, but that was a fluke. He should produce this year.
Dave Kingman will again hit about 30 taters but also .215. Hubie
Brooks, Mookie Wilson, Neil Allen and Ron Gardenheire are all
good but they aren't enough to get New York anywhere near .500.
There you have it, the World Series, er, the NL East winner will
be Montreal. Maybe the AL East will concede in June.

_ 4Judging from all the bunny r b ist a appe ar do ntle iso n this week,
there is no doubt that Easter weekend was upon us. To all avid sports fans
that means only one thing: No intramural sports.
Thus, the only action to report took place on Thursday. The competition in
both mini-soccer and volleyball was hot and heavy, though, compensating
for Sunday's brief hiatus.-
MINI SOCCER
In the first Super-Star match, the Samba Kids ran away with a 6-1 victory
over the Grad Club.
The first half ended even at 1-1 and it looked as though it would be a close
game.
"Both teams were measuring each other," said Samba Kid Guilherme
Rabello. "We were seeing who was who on the other team and what plays
were working."
In the second half, the Kids broke the game wide open with five unan-
swered goals to end all scoring and the season for the Grad Club.
One of the major factors leading to the amazing scoring barrage by the
Kids was the performance of Eros Chaves, who did not start for the Kids in
the first half. Any team that has any hope of beating the Kids had better find
some way of stopping Chaves or it will fall the way of the Grad Club.
In their next game the Kids will take on the Gato's Prowlers, who defeated
the Strykers by the score of 6-3.
The Strykers were one of the weaker teams we played in the tournament,"
said Prowlers' manager Ed Munoz. "They were physical, but not really
good."
The Prowlers had a slim half-time lead of 3-2, but with three second half
goals to the Stykers' one, the Prowlers finished the game with a rather com-
fortable margin of victory.
Munoz praised the play of two team members, Fatih Tezok, who is the
team's leading scorer, and goalie Jay Weis, who played particularly well in
the second half.
In regards to their upcoming match versus the Samba Kids, Munoz says
that it will be a tough game. "The Kids are the top team in the league," said
Munoz, adding "We are confident that we can beat them."
In the one game played this week in the Competitive 'A' division, the Or-
bitals defeated the F.C. Spaz, 6-3, in a come-from-behind victory.
"We were totally disoriented at first," said Orbital Jan Vanderest. "In the
first five minutes F.C. Spaz scored three goals against us because many of
our players had not arrived. We got our heads together enough before the
end of the half to score two goals and to make the game close."
The arrival of one of the Orbitals' top defenders, Chuck Noon, was a major
factor in their second-half shutdown of the Spaz. Four more goals nailed
down a victory for the Orbitals.
Vanderest also was pleased with the performance of Dave Kirchoff,
saying he played great in the second half.
Rounding out this week's mini-soccer results was the rather uneventful, 4-
0, whipping Triangle suffered at the hands of the Couzens Rowdies.
Two goals in the first half and two more in the second was all it took for the
Rowdies to put away the fraternity team.
Speaking on behalf of Triangle was Tom Oh, who said, "We were
whooped."

tramural department during the previous week. This week's digest was

Reds steal victory, 5-4

CINCINNATI (AP) - Dave Concepcion's two-out single in
the bottom of the eighth inning scored Eddie Milner with the
winning run and gave the Cincinnati Reds a 5-4 victory
yesterday over the Atlanta Braves in the 1983 National
League season opener.
Milner singled with two out in the eighth off losing reliever
Steve Bedrosian, then stole second. Concepcion then hit a soft
single to right to give the Reds their come-from-behind vic-
tory over the defending NL West champion Braves.
REDS' STARTER MARIO Soto, 1-0,'surrendered five hits
and four runs - two of them earned - over the first eight irr-
nings for the winning decision. Tom Hume got the save by
working the ninth.
Bedrosian came in the eighth for 44-year-old starter Phil
Niekro, who gave up four hits and four runs in the first seven
innings.
It was the seventh time Atlanta and Cincinnati opened the
National League season, with the teams splitting their first
six meetings.
The game was played on a mild spring day before 42,892
fans, the smallest Opening Day crowd at Riverfront Stadium
since 1972. It was the first time in 11 years that the Reds'
opener wasn't sold out.
A submarine commander threw out the cermonial first pit-

ch with a ball that travelled aboard the nuclear-powered
submarine USS Cincinnati for nine months.
Kansas City 7, Baltimore 2
BALTIMORE (AP) - Georg Brett hit a two-run homer;
and Willie Aikens and Jerry-Martin added solo shots to power
the Kansas City Royals past the Baltimore Orioles, 7-2
yesterday in the first American League game of the 1983
season.
Brett, who had gone 2-for-32 in his last 10 exhibition games
without a home or RBI, scored three runs besides getting his
two RBI.
HE DOUBLED with two out in the first inning and scored
when right fielder Dan Ford dropped a fly ball by Amos Otis.'
Then,he homered in the third off Dennis Martinez following a
leadoff walk to U.L. Washington.
Aikens connected in the sixth and Martin in the eighth off
reliever Storm Davis.
The Royals, losers in Baltimore's last three home openers,
scored two unearned runs in the seventh following a two-oute
fielding error by shortstop Cal Ripken Jr.
Willie Wilson beat out an infield hit and Brett followed with
a grounder that Ripken misplayed as both runner were safe.
Otis then singled home Wilson, sending Brett to second, and a
double by Hal McRae scored Brett.
