Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-31-2013

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, October 31, 1913:

Manager Joe Tinker of the Cincinnati National League Club, [yesterday] signed a contract to manage the team for the season of 1914. The signing followed a lengthy conference between Tinker and [Reds president Gerry] Herrmann at which the policy of the club for next year was being discussed.
...
[This past summer] Tinker insisted that he could not build up a good team when President Herrmann continued to make trades without consulting him.

Meanwhile, it was hard for President Herrmann to build a good team when his manager was jumping to the Federal League. By the end of December 1913, Tinker was the shortstop/manager of the Chi-Feds.
