    I agree, my heart goes out to his wife and daughters. I remember going to the games at Memorial Stadium and sitting on those hardwood bleachers watching him pitch.

    RIP Mike.

    Saw on twitter, Ravens will hold a moment for Flanagan during the game tonight. Steve Bisciotti, you are a classy classy man.

    I am not an Orioles fan, but appreciate what Flanagan did in his career/life. You might say I held my own personal moment-of-silence for the loss of this lefty. The fact that Bisciotti is holding an "official" m-o-s tonight shows respect and an admirable appreciation for Mike. I'm glad that our Ravens owner is a class act... Bc

    Yes it can.

    Did Mike have other monkeys on his back? Without a doubt. But it is reasonable and apparent to connect those dots and identify *one* factor as the state of the team coupled with Mike's own involvement with it. Casting his ugly shadow over that factor is Peter Angelos.

    Anybody who says that's the whole story is a fool. But it's part of the story.

    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.

    I would actually have been surprised AND disappointed had SB Not done this. Afterall, the Orioles/Ravens fanbase is ONE family, is it not?!

    When people close to him say it was a factor, I have to believe it.

    As for other monkeys, the Sun is reporting that personal financial issues were a factor.

    very classy move by bisciotti.

    for some reason, it reminded me of when angelos forbid his employees to wear purple during the ravens' super bowl run. mf'er!

    When I found out the reason for his suicide that made it worse, it's unreal and heartbreaking. I always admired Mike's passion for the Orioles and the game of baseball in general.
