While we do. not believe either of the three can cop the burning in their respective leagues, last spring no one in. his right mind would have picked any of them to be among the contenders this late in the season. •*"--__-«-_ The Jets are sure of a playoff berth unless they collapse completely Cleveland may make us eat our words by shading the White Sox for the pennant. Apparently the Indians do not know or believe what a lot of fans, writers and baseball men are saying- that the Cleveland club is not a solid baseball team. ' We talk and they go on winning. .„„-..«* However ^either of these is the comeback which has pleased us most. That honor goes to the game effort put out by Big Don Newcombe of the Cincinnati Reds. Big Don, who has hod his ups and down; as a star, was at low ebb when the season started. People not only were saying his ca* reer as n starting pitcher was over. There were those who wera accusing him of not having the guts in a pinch. The young players ignored him when he tried to tell them how a championship b,g leaguer should conduct himself. *9 These things hurt Don, who is a sensitive guy despite his foreboding look and size. • .ta Now that he is the ace of the Reds' pitching staff he< ******* the senior citizen and when he speaks hi. words have authority.
