Comments: Four 500-HR guys. ... Hamilton may lose PT to Kelley, a much better defensive OF ... J. Robinson a better defender than coded. I think he and Hornsby should swap defensive ratings. ... Four man rotation (Johnson, Nichols, Plank, Ryan) of 300-game winners, with Walsh in the bullpen ... Will play in major hitters park ... No NeLs made the squad. The fourth round picks were all better, or at least no worse, than the NeL leftovers.
