News broke yesterday that utility man Ryan Flaherty is on his way to Philadelphia Phillies, bringing to an end his six-year stint with the Baltimore Orioles.

Selected in the Rule V draft, Flaherty first joined the team in 2012 and hit .216 with 6 homers and 19 RBI. That was also the year the Orioles miraculously went 93-69, ending a 17-year playoff drought. The team has been one of the best in the American League since that point, consistently defying the odds.

Coincidence? Yes, probably. But still, Flaherty was a likable guy who moved all over the diamond when called upon.

This afternoon, Ryan “Flash” Flaherty said his goodbyes in a tweet.

I think center fielder Adam Jones speaks for a lot of Orioles fans here:
