Melvin remembers Flanagan

NEW YORK -- Bob Melvin and Mike Flanagan were teammates for just one season, but their friendship endured, frozen in a 20-year-old picture that Melvin still keeps.

Melvin thought about that picture Thursday as he remembered Flanagan, a day after the former Orioles pitcher died in an apparent suicide.

"He threw the last pitch by an Oriole at Memorial Stadium," said Melvin, who was the Orioles catcher that day. "He struck out Travis Fryman on a 3-2 curve. We often talked about that afterwards, and there was a picture of him walking off the mound with me next to him. He signed it for me."

Flanagan was 39 years old then, almost at the end of an 18-year career.

"He was just a great teammate, like another coach," Melvin said.

Not a fan of Knobler but this was a very nice articale. Just a great memory of a fine man. Unlike his idiot Rotto's aticle. He should be relieved of his job for such a moronic article.

Nobody has a bad word to say about Flanagan.  A class act.  I'll miss his insight in the booth.  Regards to his family.
