Yankees pitcher dies in plane crash

Wednesday afternoon NY Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle's plane crashed. When the news first hit the media it was unsure if he was killed in the crash. When I was listening to the breaking news on KFDI all they said was the NY starting pitcher was killed in a plane crash. As a Yankees fan I first thought of the Yankees, but then it occurred to me that the Mets, the other NY baseball team, is in the playoffs. Wow, i'm sure that scared many Mets fans. I'm surprised KFDI aired the news without confirming the player was a Yankees or Mets pitcher. Lidle's death is a major problem for the Yankees (who are out of the playoffs), however, the Mets would be in a bind if their starting pitcher was killed as they entered the playoffs.
