Connie Mack Newsbeat

Connie Mack responds to Eddie Plank signing with the Federal League, Richmond Times-Dispatch, December 3, 1914:
Plank, as you might expect, dominated the inferior talent in the Federal League in 1915, winning 21 games while leading the league in ERA+, FIP, WHIP, HR/9, BB/9, and K/BB ratio.
Gettysburg Eddie still had it when the Federals imploded and he came back to the American League as a 40-year-old, putting up a 125 ERA+ in 366.2 innings in two seasons before retiring.

Washington Herald, December 1, 1914:
The trade never happened, but Connie did spend the winter of 1914-1915 strengthening other ballclubs. The Athletics, winners of four pennants and three World Series between 1910-1914, suddenly dumped virtually their entire roster and lost 109 games in 1915.

Milwaukee Journal, November 25, 1914:
Stallings did threaten to punch Mack in the nose before the series.

The [Missoula, MT] Daily Missoulian, October 30, 1914:
Any idea who this is referencing? Danny Murphy, maybe?
Murphy seems to tick all the boxes: He started his career fairly unsuccessfully with the Giants, was one of the best second baseman in the game during his 12-year run in Philadelphia, spent the last two seasons of his Athletics career as a benchwarmer, and jumped to the Feds after Mack sold him to Baltimore (IL) before the 1914 season.

Pittsburgh Gazette-Times, October 22, 1914:
Mr. Mack wasn’t quite done managing in 1914. He ran the show for another 36 seasons.

Pittsburgh Press, October 16, 1914:
Hindsight is 20/20, but that seems like a really good problem to have: “My two Hall of Fame ace starting pitchers are making it harder for me to develop young pitching.”
Anyway, Mack did completely blow up his roster over the coming offseason, and the Athletics went 43-109 in 1915. 96% of the innings thrown by the Athletics in 1915 came from pitchers who were 25 years old or younger.
