This is, without a doubt, the worst of the "Putnam's Pennant Series" books. The author is very good on the "old" Orioles, and, for that matter, on the International League Orioles, which admittedly were a quasi-major league team for much of their existence. That leaves the Browns stuffed into a few afterthought chapters at the end. Admittedly, they did not have a distinguished history, but they were interesting and remain under-documented, partialy because of this misfire.
