Hello Browns fans! I have been a lifelong Cardinals fan who has known little to nothing about the Browns other than they also used to be in St. Louis. I have now found that that is much to my misfortune, as I have begun reading that book The Boys Who Were Left Behind, about the '44 Browns and Cards World Series. Wow! What a group of characters! I am only about a quarter of the way through the book, but am already finding myself dreading the end! What a colorful franchise and team!
Could any of you share more stories about these wonderful underdogs? I'd greatly appreciate it!

Dunc and I had decided that Carp was going to start. But just to make sure, I called Dunc later that morning and said, "Let's discuss the alternatives." He said, "Carp's pitching." And he hung up on me. Tony LaRussa talking about the decision to go with Chris Carpenter before Game 7 of the 2011 World Series.
