According to Four Blocks to Miller Park, a Milwaukee Brewers blog, there’s a connection between my two favorite baseball teams (the Brewers and the Oakland A’s) that I hadn’t previously considered:

…if it weren’t for the Royals, or more specifically, Charley O. Finley’s screwing of Kansas City (by unceremoniously yanking the A’s out of town) that compelled the American League to grant the city the expansion Royals, it’s a safe bet the Brewers would not exist (the only reason the American League okayed the risky venture that was the original Seattle franchise was to create schedule balance).

I don’t know if it’s true, but it’s interesting.
