    Re: OT: Mike Flanagan Passes Away



    I wanna attend O's game paying respects to him. But theyre Sold out Yanks are here. Just like Twins fans paid respects to Harmon Killerbrew.

    I love the Ravens of course, but man those were the days with guys like Flanny taking the mound for the O's. I feel awful for his family, too damn young.

    Maybe I've been away from the everyday news too long and missed the coverage but was he dealing with depression or anything diagnosed?

    Nothing diagnosed. Jerry Sandusky reports that he was distrought over the perception and anger by the city and fans that he was at fault for the failure of the Orioles, despite not being able to run the team the way he wanted to.

    Just devastating. I have such great memories of him as a kid.

    I am NOT blaming Angelos direclty for what happened, but this has to be a wakeup call. If this isn't the bottom for a once-proud franchise, I don't know what is.

    Re: OT: Mike Flanagan Passes Away

    Tim Kirkjian wrote an article on espn.com where he said that Flanagan hadn't been himself since getting removed from his front office job. He said he saw him a week or so ago and he didn't look good. Horrible, just horrible.....

    A very sad day in Baltimore, indeed.


    Oddly enough, yesterday was ALSO Cal Jr's Birthday....

    Re: OT: Mike Flanagan Passes Away

    When I heard late last night that Flanny had died at 59, that was stunning enough and terrible news, but to hear this morning that it could be suicide is hard to accept. He was not just a terrific pitcher and broadcaster and a genuinely funny guy, he loved the Orioles as much as any fan . . . just awful news.

    I'm an not an Orioles fan or even much of a baseball fan anymore. As an outsider it always seemed that the fans blame was all directed at the owner

    Not here to defend Angelos, but it appears Mike had bigger issues, as much as people want to vilify the owner over this, it can't be allowed. People bear many burdens large and difficult all over the world and do not take such drastic actions. If it was indeed Mike's thought that he was responsible for the state of the team, he clearly wasn't seeing anything clearly.

    R.I.P. Flanny, you were an amazing Oriole in every facet.
