Clipping:Explaining Cincinnati losses
|Add a Clipping|
|Date||Sunday, October 23, 1870|
Everybody in this vicinity is making the inquiry, “What is the matter with the Reds?” Their recent defeats at Chicago and Rockford have surprised their friends here. ... But our Cincinnati friends in calculating upon the invincibility of their club seem to lose sight of the important fact, and that is that the time has come when no single club can retain the supremacy even for a single season. ... The game is too uncertain in its results for any one club to maintain the first position long unless they could monopolize the playing strength of the whole country, and this cannot be done while other cities than Cincinnati are to be found ready with plenty of stamps to outbid the enterprising club managers of Porkopolis.
