This is a grudge match that goes back to 1954 when the STL Browns moved into Washington's territory...on the strength of Hoffberger money. Clark Griffith was merely a founder of the AL, HoF, great pitcher in the old National League, and leader of the NL players who chose to make the new AL.

Note: one weekend around 1958, Paul ('the spit") Richard, manager of the Baltimore team, persuaded the umpires to full-body search Pedro Ramos, the Nats starting pitcher. Found nothing, but Pete lost his temper, lost his control, and the sewer-sucking team from Balmer won.

Often, I think: I really hope 12% of the stuff you say is just totally made up.
