Defunct Teams[edit]

I'm removing the New York Highlanders from this list - they aren't defunct, just re-named. Similarly, the inclusion of teams like the Milwaukee Braves and New York Giants seems odd, as neither MLB nor the teams themselves consider them defunct. I understand the need to include clubs such as the 1901 Milwaukee Brewers, 1901-1902 Baltimore Orioles, St. Louis Browns and the like, since their inclusion isn't apparent from the list of current clubs, but not these.

Should we actually list all the other defunct teams of the National League from the 19th century or should the scope of this be only teams that were in existence in either league since the formation of the American League? I would say include all. Arnabdas (talk) 17:17, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
