JUST GUFF.

Said Philly (A. L.) to Chicago (A. L.):
  "O, wouldn’t this race be a laugh,
If commy could just be persuaded to sell
  To Connie his whole pitching staff?"

Said Chicago (A. L.) to Philly (A. L.):
  "Of course what I think little matters,
But I guess he would give you his catchers as well
  If you would just hand him your batters."

Said Philly (N. L.) to Chicago (N. L.):
  "We’d cop, pulling hard on the reins,
If Johnny could just be persuaded to sell
  To our bunch a few of his brains."

Said Chicago (N. L.) to Philly (N. L.):
  "Now, as for all cash offers, nixey.
But he’d trade you his brains and his features as well
  For Alex, and Seaton and Rixey."
