Angelos did not prevent the Orioles' departure

The media need to stop perpetuating the lie that the purchase of the Orioles by Peter Angelos kept the team from being moved ("Evolving legacy," Aug. 2).

Sure, some fans were paranoid, but pay them no mention. No owner was going to move the Orioles at a time when a new, highly lauded stadium was in its second season, it was packed with sellouts every night and the Orioles were the only major professional sports team in a market the size of Baltimore.

Even when the Ravens season is over, it seems that every day in the paper there is at least one article, big or small, about the Ravens. Once the Orioles season was over, I find...

    What a great editorial ("Somewhere the sun is shining," Oct. 16). It almost helps. But, alas, it also reminds me of how much we lost when we lost Bart Giamatti.

    After the red-hot Kansas City Royals completed a four-game sweep of the Orioles in the American League Championship Series, I'm still flaunting my team colors. For the first time in my life I can say I'm proud to be an Orioles fan ("There's no joy in Baltimore," Oct. 16).
