Milwaukee Journal, September 2, 1915:
I’m sick of these hopeless welfare clubs like the Yankees demanding handouts from more successful, better-run organizations.
Anyway, the Baker sale didn’t actually happen until February 1916, and it was for a reported $37,500 instead of the $15,000 mentioned in this article.

Pittsburgh Press, July 2, 1915:
Yep, that’s pretty much exactly what happened. Mack won back-to-back world championships in 1929 and 1930 and only sold the team because he didn’t have enough money to make it through the 1955 season.

Pittsburgh Press, April 23, 1915:
I get the impression that Baker was lying when he said traveling was the problem. Seems to me he probably saw how terrible the Athletics were going to be for the next few years, didn’t want to deal with it, had enough money to walk away, and didn’t want to embarrass Mack in the process.
As for the Trappe to Upland jaunt, it’s nearly two hours by car in 2015, so I can’t imagine how long the drive would have taken in 1915. 4-5 hours maybe? Mack’s right; that would not have been a fun commute.
