I've heard that story a dozen times about it being Robert Moses's fault that the Dodgers left Brooklyn. Whoever believes that either wasn't alive at the time or doesn't understand the economics of the move.
1 - The NY Giants were the 3rd ball of NYC, well behind the Yankees and Dodgers in revenues.
Those are the facts kiddies, and anyone who doesn't understand them is too naive to even converse with. Moses took the blame while O'Malley took the multi-millions.
