Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 11-3-2015

Milwaukee Sentinel, November 3, 1915:

If Charley Comiskey has his way, Chic [sic] Gandil will be playing first base for the White Sox next season.
Griffith has made it known that he intends to have Judge, a youngster of only 20 years, at the bag when the season opens, and it is not a secret that with this in view he intends to make some sort of a disposition of Gandil. Gandil would come pretty near to making the Chicago team, which is sadly in need of both a first and third baseman.

Don’t do it, Charlie. Trust me. You don’t want Gandil. It may seem like a good idea, but it isn’t. Really.

Chick Gandil spent 1916 with the Indians, who sold him on to Chicago before the 1917 season. Weirdly, Gandil played in all eight games in the 1919 World Series, then he completely disappears from the statistical record. I wonder what happened.
