    Re: OT: Mike Flanagan Passes Away



    At 10:10 PM, Fox news reported that "A" body was found on Flanagans property that he owned. And that Flanagan could not be reached for comment.

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/mar...,4675762.story

    They did not report that it was Mike Flanagan.
    This report is weird at best. Hope that it was not him. Maybe I am somehow getting this mixed up. Then found the above link article. Why would it say a body was found and not confirm it was Flanagan ?

    As of 10:20 PM, the body has not been identified.

    Unless Fox News has completly botched this.

    Re: OT: Mike Flanagan Passes Away

    He was just on TV the other day. Shocking and too young if true. A great CyYoung Award
    Winner.

    Palmer tells a funny story about him in his book. When Flanny was a rookie he was in a bad
    rut and losing and was worried to death Earl was going to cut him. Jim said no way, you're too
    good. He said, I dunno, could you say something to Earl for me. Jim said sure.

    Palmer said now Earl never had an open door policy to his office. Nobody just
    walked in on Earl unless you owned the team but in Fenway Park the manager's office was next
    to the toilet.

    So while taking a leak I stuck my head in Earl's door and said hey Earl. He
    said what? Flanny's off to a bad start and he's worried you're going to cut him
    So he asked me to say something to you.

    Earl said you know I'm not going to cut him. You know and i know he's gonna be a great pitcher.
    Jim said yea, we know that but Flanny doesn't know it.

    Earl said ok, I'll say something to him. Jim flushed the toilet and left. Earl
    talked to Flanny and he eventually won the Cy Young.

    Palmer said Flanny can thank the urinal for that.

    It has been confirmed by multiple outlets other then then the 1 above.
    NST is also reporting the cause but I'll wait.

    RIP Flanny. We love you.

    Tony also confirmed it on FB.

    Actually I was relaying the report which I believe is credible...unfortunately. Would love for this all to be proven wrong but I don't think so.

    It would be a great gesture on the part of the Ravens to ask for a moment of silence to remember Flanny tomorrow night and wear No. 46 stickers on their helmets if they could pull it together in time.

    Completely OT, but Tony Pente on OH is a fucking asshole. Stop acting like your being noble and "respectful of Flanagan's family" by dropping hints and prompting wild speculation. Anyway... This is such a damn tragedy

    What a sad night for Oriole fans who grew up on The Oriole Way. He was one of the greats of our team. I'm shocked.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Dempsey and Palmer alluded to cause, saying that Mike had a side which he never really let anyone else in on. Dempsey said something that he knew a little about it, but didn't want to comment on it right now.

    It's not really confirmed, but I would think Flanagan would've said something by now if it wasn't true. A LOT of media sources would have egg on their face for running with the story, especially since the MASN broadcast has basically just become a rolling tribute to Flanagan and tributes.

    Buck was even close to tears. Flanagan was someone who was VERY close to most people on the club or involved with it, from his time as a player, as a coach, as a GM, and as a reporter. Just about everyone on MASN is struggling to get through.
