The most probable reason Joe Taylor didn't have a better major league career was that he was apparently a very heavy drinker who loved to party and chase women (not that there is anything wrong with that). There is a pretty funny (and somewhat racist) anecdote about this in "Branch Rickey's Little Blue Book" if I remember correctly. He did die young too though whether it's related to his lifestyle is unknown.
