Buck, the reason for the very existence of the franchise you work for now is because the owner of the Washington Senators was kind enough to let them have a team in Baltimore. And the reason you have this wonderful ballpark to play in is because of Washington and its baseball fans.

It is impossible to understand, of course, what caused Mike Flanagan to pull the trigger Wednesday afternoon. Speculation has run rampant since the tragedy, and much of it surmises that the Baltimore Orioles' ongoing failures were responsible for the suicide of a man who spent nearly 40 years as a player, executive and broadcaster with the organization.
The venerable and venerated Sports Illustrated has fallen victim in recent years to bombast and balderdash on too many of its slick pages, substituting quick hits for much of its formerly substantial journalism.
