Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-13-2019

Pittsburgh Press, September 13, 1919:

Gene McCann, scout of the Cincinnati Reds and one of Baseball’s wise men, believes that the whole weight of the coming world’s series rests upon the shoulders of Eddie Cicotte, the Whitesox shine ball pitcher.

“Cicotte will go in for the first game against the Reds,” says McCann. “If he wins, the Sox, a great ball club, and full of nerve, must be given an even chance against the Reds. But if the Reds thrash Cicotte in that opening contest, the stuff is off—the Reds can be set down as future champions of the world.”

That was so much more true than McCann could know.
