EDIT: It would warm my heart to watch an expansion team in Toronto win the cup before the Leafs. Okay I changed my mind! I'm all for this.
The Giants, Dodgers and Yankees all used to play in NY.
The Giants and Dodgers moved in 1957, the Dodgers from Brooklyn, the Giants from Manhattan.
The Yanks and Giants played in Manhattan.
The Yankees were the original Baltimore Orioles franchise.
