Mike Flanagan, Dead at 59

In MemoriumMike Flanagan was 59. He was a pitcher who recorded a 167-143 lifetime record with the Baltimore Orioles and our Toronto Blue Jays from 1975 to 1992.

Here's something I wrote about Mike Flanagan a few years back:

Mike Flanagan was a decent pitcher for the Jays from 1987-1990, but I almost feel guilty calling him a Blue Jay. He was a Baltimore Oriole through and through. He came over in a trade after 12 years as an Oriole and then he re-signed with them after his stint here in Toronto.

Here's a little Mike Flanagan trivia for ya. When we traded for him in '87 he owned more wins (17) and innings pitched (208) against us than any other pitcher.
