Growing up a Red Sox fan, initially, through the early 70's, I used to hate the O's. Then I started to appreciate Weaver's mind games and grew to hold the O's as a legit 2d favorite by 1978 or so. Anything to beat the NYY helped, but Weaver just seemed to be in a different league as far as managerial sharps and personality. I still love pitching and 3 run homers, as well as
like Roenicke and Lowenstein. RIP.
