Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-3-2015

Pittsburgh Press, August 3, 1915:

The report issuing from Chicago to the effect that the White Sox had offered several players and $20,000 for the sale of Outfielder Joe Jackson was denied by Vice President Barnard of the Cleveland American league club.

“No one here has ever had the temerity to suggest the sale of Jackson to any club nor has any club made a recent bid for his services,” said Barnard.

Suuuuuuure, Ernest. Sure. And I bet there’s no chance Jackson is playing for the White Sox by the end of the month, right?
