IN THE NEWS: Pittsburgh sends Alan Comorosky and Tony Piet to Cincinnati in exchange for P Red Lucas. As a pitcher, Lucas will feast on the Reds over the rest of his career, going 14–0 against them. Piet hit .323 for the season, but was in the doghouse over a contract dispute and never started a game after July.
IN THE NEWS: Chuck Klein, who won the Triple Crown with the Phillies, is sold to the Chicago Cubs for $125,000 and veterans Mark Koenig, Harvey Hendrick, and rookie Ted Kleinhans. Hendrick will play one year in Philley, while the other two quickly go to the Reds.

He will have two solid years at Wrigley before returning to the Phils.
