A thousand definitions and explanations have been given lately for the non-success of the Philadelphia nine–a nine which, with the championship long ago assured to them, have utterly broken down and have sustained such a disastrous run of defeats that the longed-for pennant is now well nigh in the hands of a rival club. The definition is simply this: The literal loss of their pitcher–for he is as good as lost to the club as long as his present ill health lasts.
