Mike Flanagan: Orioles and Jays (Toronto series review)

200px-Mike_FlanaganWe miss you, Mike Flanagan. The 1979 Cy Young Award winner in Baltimore is no longer with is. There is a short story on him in my upcoming book. How he came to the Orioles Store in Washington around 1985 for an autograph session with fans. Except there were no fans in the store. Good marketing eh?

I was a sales rep at the time and a bigger Orioles fan. If Flanagan was upset about the situation he gave no indication. So I went out in the street and tried to peddle free autographs. I was somewhat successful.

But I also used my time wisely. I recalled a game in Kansas City (with George Brett and company). I had watched the game on my black and white TV and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It was as if he was throwing the ball towards the stands and it would break back to a left-handed hitter and freeze them.

In the latest version of the Redskins seven round mock draft, I have the Redskins trading down in the second round, and as a result gaining a third round pick which is why this mock has two third round selections.

 

Round 2: Kyle Van Noy LB BYU

 

Round 3: Deon Bucannon S Washington State

The Baltimore Orioles currently have a .500 record sitting at 10-10. The offense has been hit or miss for the Orioles but one thing it has lacked has been power. Chris Davis, Nick Markakis, Adam Jones, and J.J. Hardy have all been missing the home run power for the Orioles, they have three total home runs between the four of them. Nelson Cruz has six home runs and is currently batting .301.  Cruz’s six home runs is the team lead, Matt Wieters is second on the team with four homers.  Cruz has six of the Orioles 15 home runs on the season.

Cruz was a late addition for the Orioles and has more than lived up to expectations. The Orioles now probably wish that they signed Cruz to more than a one-year deal. Cruz also has four doubles.
