I was absolutely stunned to hear the news last night that Mike Flanagan was dead at the age of 59.  As someone who used to frequent 33rd street as a kid, Flanagan was one of my heroes.  Left handed like me, I used to pretend I was Mike when pitching in the backyard with friends.  I will choose to think of the positive memories about Flanny.  The 1979 Cy Young Award, being a part of the 83 World Series champion Baltimore Orioles.  Finishing the last game at Memorial Stadium with not a dry eye in the house, and being a part of a combined no hitter in Oakland.  It sucks to lose your heroes.  RIP “Flanny”
