59 years old. No link, sorry, I'm on my phone. One of the good guys of baseball.

Too bad. I wasn't alive but O's fans I know respected the guy. 1979 Cy Young winner, I believe.

C. Trent is now reporting on his CBS Sports blog that it was a suicide. And it's a weird reason if true. I don't want to believe that. I'm still on my phone, so no link again, but it's bazaar.

On ESPN this morning they interviewed Tim Kurtchen who knew him and he all but said it was suciside and that Flanagan had been very depressed.

Very sad, esp under those circumstances if that is the case. Next Sunday marks 12 years since my brother and closest of friends took his life. A huge part of me died that day too and I feel bad for Mikes family/friends that are left with unanswered questions.
