Milwaukee Journal, December 24, 1914:
Don’t hold your breath, Jim. I don’t think he’s coming.

Omaha Daily Bee, December 22, 1914:
Weeghman was wrong. The Big Train went back to D.C. in 1915 and did what he did all the time: Led the American League in wins, games started, complete games, shutouts, innings pitched, strikeouts, batters faced, ERA+, FIP, WHIP, K/BB ratio, and fewest walks per nine innings.
He was pretty good.

Chicago Tribune, December 4, 1914:
Washington owner Clark Griffith personally traveled to Coffeyville and made a successful counteroffer in order to keep the Big Train in DC.
Also, the “Tinx”! I really like that.

Harrisburg Telegraph, October 28, 1914:
...and Jones returned with slightly less money, a checkbook, and no Walter Johnson. The Big Train was having none of it.
As an aside, I love that Fielder Jones’s given name was Fielder. An apt name for a guy who played 1255 big league games in center field and led the league in both range factor and fielding percentage.
