HOT STOVE: AMPUTATION
HOT STOVE: MEAT AND POTATOES
HOT STOVE: SEE IT NOW
Hodges, Furillo, Craig and Robinson to the Giants for Mays and Spencer; Campanella, Gilliam, Zimmer, Lehman and Jackson to the Pirates for Friend and Thomas; Erskine, Thomas, Spencer and Amoros to the Braves for Mathews.
The awesome Dodger lineup would read like this: Fernandez, ss; Neal, 2b; Snider, cf; Mays, rf; Mathews, 3b; Demeter, If; Gentile, 1b; Rosboro, c.
HOT STOVE: ASTOUNDING TRADES
Here are my astounding trades. The Pirates need a catcher and the Phillies need infielders, so trade Dick Groat, Bob Skinner, Spook Jacobs and Jack Shepard to the Phils for Stan Lopata. The Pirates get a good catcher while the Phils get a good shortstop, a first baseman with great potential (even toward the close of the season Bragan still said Skinner was his best hitter but he couldn't find a place to play him as his fielding didn't compare with Long's), another infielder and a fair catcher. As the Phillies have more than once expressed vivid interest in Groat and Skinner, it's possible they might have to include another player, as, for example, Granny Hamner. If this fell through, it's possible the Red-legs' interest in pitching could lead to a Vern Law for Smokey Burgess and Hal Jeff coat deal.
Most will agree I have been general manager too long. So now, under pressure, I resign. Though I have probably created dissatisfaction in many areas, my own particular wigwam is heated to satisfaction.
TRACK: A WISE MAN'S VALUES
Stampfl's formula appears to be simple, honest and direct rather than "mysterious," as described in your title, and I believe it applies to much of life's race other than track events: be genuinely interested in the person, encourage him to set high goals for himself, show him the way, insist that he accept his own responsibility and watch him go! How better to rear children? How better to develop business subordinates? How could schools follow a better policy?
