On my way home from work this afterno…

On my way home from work this afternoon, I heard the sad news that Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle was killed in the Manhattan plane crash. Since I’ve been home, all I’ve heard is how sad the situation is and how terrible it is for the family. This is all true, but I can’t help but think that the outpouring from the media would be lessened if Lidle play for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays or any other team not located in New York. Apparently Major League Baseball was considering canceling their playoff games this evening.

Interesting how a player’s worth and fame is related to where he plays.
