Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-15-2014

A transcript of Chi-Feds manager Joe Tinker berating umpire Ed Goeckel, in the Pittsburgh Press, September 15, 1914:

“You are a fine piece of cheese to be umpiring a ball game. Why don’t you get up close to the plate and call them when they are over?...How about that stuff Saturday when you called the game on account of darkness when the sun was shining brightly?...You are the worst umpire I ever bumped up against and [Federal League President] Gilmore is going to tie the can to you shortly.”

The two had some history. In May 1914, Tinker successfully protested a game as the result of a controversial call by Goeckel.
