Mike Cuellar was a four-time 20-game winner for the Orioles. He won 143 games, fourth most in team history. He was traded by the Astros to the Orioles in December 1968 for outfielder Curt Blefary in what is considered one of the worst trades in Astros’ history. Cuellar was one of four 20-game winners for the Orioles in 1971; the others were Jim Palmer, Dave McNally and Pat Dobson.

What’s the story? 

“He wasn’t one of those pitchers that threw 100 mph. He was crafty, smart and fun to watch.”
