RIP Mike Flanagan: Former MLB Pitcher with Orioles and Jays Passes Away at 59
He was part of many fond childhood memories for me, and all of Baltimore.

1. On the MLB channel a little while ago, they said it was suicide
They said that he felt that he was being personally blamed by his community for how badly the Orioles have been doing. It's so sad, and it makes me realize why this is one of the few sports forums I can be on. We jest, but there is no real hatred.

Well, OK maybe. Except for the Yankees and Bud Selig.

6. I think he did. I haven't watched the O's much over the last couple of years,
but I think he did. He did the weekday games and rotated with Jim Palmer, IIRC.
