OMG: Lidle Killed

I just heard him on Mike and the Mad Dog the other day calling in to defend himself when they took him to task over comments that they thought were critical of Joe Torre. He said he wasn't a media type guy and didn't mean to imply that Torre was a bad manager. I'm stunned:

A small plane with New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle aboard crashed into a 50-story condominium tower Wednesday on Manhattan's Upper East Side, killing Lidle and three other people and raining flaming debris on sidewalks, authorities said. Federal Aviation Administration records showed the single-engine plane was registered to Lidle, and FBI reports show that Lidle's passport was found at the scene. A law enforcement official in Washington, speaking on condition on anonymity, said two people were aboard, and Lidle's passport was found at the crash scene. The plane had issued a distress call before the crash, according to the official.
