Curious, so I am asking.....

As you all well know, I enjoy exploring the history of baseball.  The Orioles have a long history of which half is from St. Louis and Milwaukee and the other half is since coming to Baltimore.  I enjoy the Orioles a lot, but I also like reading the history of this franchise when it was in St. Louis and Milwaukee.  I know that the history before Baltimore was not all that great, but I find it interesting non-the-<!-- TOKEN_1229911004143_TOKEN -->less and I am sure glad I did not live through those years!

When I was old enough to become a fan it was hard to imagine Baltimore ever having bad teams or even being the Browns.  After all we rooted on Powell, McNally, Palmer, Robinson, Dobson, Alexander, Cuellar, Oates, Grich and Belanger and had a manager named Earl.  Heck, what was losing like we thought back then. We had a powerhouse in the AL East at the time.   Well, we've found out about losing but in time we'll win again. Unfortunately,   I also can understand and empathise with the Browns years better now also after the past several seasons.  :(

I always find it stunning the Browns could only manage one pennant in all those years.  Also, despite their rough years they managed to have such great players such as George Sisler, Ken Williams, Urban Shocker, Goose Goslin, Rogers Hornsby and others.   While I find it fascinating I sure am glad they moved to Baltimore and are our Orioles.  It is too bad Baltimore hasn't had a continous presence in the majors since the founding of the AL.

So, I am just posting a poll here to see how you all feel about the pre-history of the Orioles.  Just call it curiosity I guess.  How do you feel about the past? Do you enjoy learning about those who played for this franchise in another place and time?  I know some don't care, others are neutral and some like to study those years.  I am just trying to figure out what the ratio of Orioles fans feel each way here on CC.
