Eppa Rixey Newsbeat

Pittsburgh Press, March 16, 1916:
Griffith was right, though Joe Judge struggled (.220/.333/.298, 90 OPS+) in 1916. Over the course of his career, Judge racked up 2352 career hits, a .298 batting average, and finished in the top ten in MVP voting twice.
As for Rixey, he does sound like a colossal pain in the butt for the Phillies. If I recall correctly, this is the third year in a row he was too busy doing other stuff to show up for Spring Training. He eventually turned into a terrific pitcher, but I can see how the Phils would have been eager to get rid of him.

Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger, March 1, 1916:
The 1916 version of having a guy on the other line about some whitewalls, it seems. Rixey made his season debut that year in April, so it’s probably safe to assume he left his teaching job. Eppa went on to have perhaps the best season in his career in 1916, putting up a 1.85 ERA (144 ERA+) in 287 innings.
