    I saw on ESPN's The Top Five Reasons....why you can't blame Walter O' Malley from moving the Dodgers to Los Angeles. One of the reasons that it stated was that the Boston Braves moved to Milwaukee.

    Absolutely right, tonyp!

    The Big "O" couldn't stand the fact that LOU PERINI got there first, so he had to take it one step further, which he did.....and WE lost!
