The Story Was Unbelievable Enough Before

A small plane, it was reported this afternoon, crashed into an apartment building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, creating a massive fireball and at least a couple of deaths. Then, a few minutes ago, we got news that the pilot of the plane was none other than Yankees (and former Phillies) pitcher Cory Lidle, who was reportedly killed in the crash.

Lidle is, if I'm not mistaken, the first Yankee killed in a plane crash since Thurman Munson in 1979.
