Just when you thought the Orioles season couldn't get more tragic, the team announces the death of Mike Flanagan, former star pitcher/front office executive/broadcaster. As The Sun reports, Flanagan was found dead on his property and the cause of death has yet to be determined. He was 59 years old.
Coupled with the disaster that this season has become, it seems the curse of the Bambino has migrated from Beantown to Ruth's birthplace.
There is no joy in Mudville.
