Washington Times, July 24, 1914:
This is the second day in a row that a newspaper suggested that a guy who’d go on to become the winningest pitcher in franchise history would be released. Yesterday it was the Phils’ eventual all-time wins leader, today the Reds.
Rixey went 2-11 and allowed 73 runs (50 earned) in 103 innings in 1914, but the Phillies didn’t release him. They kept him long enough for him to pitch brilliantly for a few years and lead the league in losses twice (the Phillies were terrible for most of his time there). Eventually they traded him to Cincinnati for a Hall of Famer, but unfortunately it was a Pro Football Hall of Famer: Greasy Neale. They also got league-average innings eater Jimmy Ring in the Rixey deal.
