I said franchise not team. The Baltimore Orioles franchise began in 1901 as the Milwaukee Brewers then moved to St. Louis where they played as the Browns until 1953. The team then moved to Baltimore for the 1954 season and have been there since.

Then it's not the Baltimore Orioles franchise. It's the Milwaukee Brewer/St. Louis Browns/Baltimore Orioles franchise.

It's also important to read it in the original Hebrew. E.g., alma versus bitulah.

Whatever. It seems a person can't make the simplest statements on this forum anymore without getting an argument. The whole thing started out innocently when a friend of mine sent me an e-mail reminding me of the Texas Rangers' 30-3 win over Baltimore. I started looking at related baseball records and was surprised to learn that the Orioles organization started off as the Milwaukee Brewers and even more so that the Yankees began as the Baltimore Orioles.

I'm very weary of conflict these days since I was injured in a car accident where my Beetle overturned after being creamed from behind on Interstate 30 by a teenager. So far his insurance company has offered me $587 for damage to the rear bumper.

My neck hurts. So far, I've been x-rayed and based on those results my doctor ordered a CT scan. For obvious reasons I won't give the results of those tests here.

Impotence will put an extra comma in the settlement.
