Shortly after Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco was named Super Bowl MVP his brother, Orioles minor league first baseman Mike Flacco, said he might give up baseball to try football.
Mike Flacco isn’t really a prospect. For one thing he’s already 26 years old and has played just four total games above Single-A. For another thing he’s a first baseman with a .378 career slugging percentage.
But now there’s only one Flacco playing for a Baltimore sports team. And this gives some crazy headline-writer a chance to use “Baltimore trades Flacco!”
