THE INSIDE TRACK
Baseball's interleague trading session begins November 20, runs through December 15. American League expansion (to 10 teams) will scramble the pieces even more than usual, but look for these names—and situations—to make trading headlines:
? Dodgers (loaded with promising youngsters) will sell or trade Gil Hodges and Duke Snider while they still have market value.
?Giants will trade discontented Johnny Antonelli, most probably to Yanks or Reds, try to land an above-average catcher (like Yanks' Elston Howard or John Blanchard) and steady shortstop (like Reds' Roy McMillan).
? Orioles need strong young outfielder who can hit with power, will send Pitchers Jack Fisher and Hal Brown to the National League in exchange for one.
?Tigers' new regime will shake up smug also-rans, try to peddle Pitcher Paul Foytack, Outfielder Charley Maxwell, maybe Second Baseman Frank Boiling.
?Angry Braves will put Wes Covington, Johnny Logan, Joey Jay and Carl Willey on block, try to corner a first-rate second baseman. Best bet is a deal with Cleveland, which needs pitching badly and would like to send Johnny Temple back to the National League.
? White Sox, along with Braves, will be most active in trading name players. Sox will part with anyone but Luis Aparicio and Nellie Fox, and Bill Veeck may ship away two power hitters he got just last year, Roy Sievers and Gene Freese.
? Red Sox will offer Batting Champ Pete Runnels for an NL shortstop, will even relinquish "untouchable" Frank Malzone for a price. His replacement: Rookie phenom Carl Yastrzemski.
?Phillies have no choice but to trade Gene Conley, who says he will not play for them any longer. For him and fading hero Robin Roberts, the Phils hope to get a couple of established major leaguers to steady a lineup of developing youngsters.
