The 1887 World Series: Bigger Clubs Have Tried

Bigger clubs than Detroit have been knocked out by the St. Louis Browns. The former's trumpeters are heralding their advance notices that Detroit will knock the champions clean out. Crippled as they are, they will make Detroit sea-sick batting on the world's championship seas before they get through with them. Chicago had a little experience of this nature in St. Louis last fall.

I look forward to finding out what the excuses will be.

I'm going to guess and say they'll blame it on the late season injuries.
