When I got home from dinner tonight, I was sad to see that Mike Cuellar lost his battle with stomach cancer today at the age of 72. Cuellar played in the majors from 1959 and 1964-1977 and played for the Reds, Cardinals, Astros, Orioles and Angels. He compiled a record of 185-130, had 4 20-win seasons and won a ring with the 1970 Orioles.
I'm too young to have seen Cuellar pitch, but from what I have heard and read, he was amazing. I'm really sad tonight to hear about the passing of one of the Orioles greatest pitchers in their history.
