    As for Willie Keeler... if we are doing this according to franchise, Keeler played for the old Orioles, which would place him on the New York Yankees.

    Including the Browns does mean Bobby Wallace should be strongly considered for the backup SS position, and would likely take one of the reserve infield spots on my 25-man team. To compare to the other reserve middle infielders mentioned... stats in parentheses are */162:

    Wallace
    Seasons - 11+ w/ STL
    Games - 1569
    AB - 5529 (571)
    runs - 609 (63)
    hits - 1424 (147)
    RBI - 607 (63)
    steals - 138 (14)
    AL MVP: none

    Kress
    Seasons - 6+ w/ STL
    Games - 785
    AB - 3020 (623)
    runs - 425 (88)
    hits - 902 (186)
    RBI - 513 (106)
    steals - 23 (5)
    AL MVP: 1931 (19th)

    Aparicio
    Seasons - 5 w/ BAL
    Games - 721
    AB - 2948 (662)
    runs - 385 (87)
    hits - 740 (166)
    RBI - 194 (44)
    steals - 166 (37)
    awards
    AL MVP: 1963 (23rd), 1964 (28th), 1966 (9th)

    Aparicio probably had the highest quality seasons of the three (Kress did better than I thought), but Wallace's tenure was a lot longer.

    I am amazed that no one named Willie Keeler to the team, not even as a back-up!

    Ole Brownie Not Mentioned

    No one mentioned Bobby Wallace. Can't leave him off the list of all time greats in the Browns/Orioles history book.......

    One more guy people leave off of this list.

    He didn't play long for the birds but he was only 1 of 4 of the O's Cy Young winners Steve Stone.

    When I did my lineup I wrestled with that one (Johnson vs. Grich) but ultimately went with Davey. He was more of an Oriole than Grich was.

    I also went with Triandos over Dempsey in a toughie, and Murray barely over Powell. It'd be an easy choice if Eddie weren't run out of town.
    I went with Davey simply because I liked him better than Grich - I looked at Grich as a "traitor" when he bailed for 'da money' after the 1976 season. And really, only his 1974 season stood out during his Baltimore tenure.

    How about some of the others? Jerry Adair wasn't bad. Rich Dauer (does he have to come with Billy Smith)? Billy Gardner? Now if we could count the Browns, Marty McManus might be the natural choice. Of course, if we counted the Browns, we'd have to find a home for guys like George Sisler and Kenny Williams.
