I Love This

Towards the end of December 1887, Von der Ahe left the United States for a vacation in Europe. He was in Philadelphia and was interviewed for an article in the Globe-Democrat that was published on December 20. He talked up the Browns and their chances for the 1888 pennant. My favorite part of the interview was the end:

"Where will Brooklyn finish in 1888?"

"Why, behind St. Louis."

I just thought that was great.
