Getting beaten by the Tigers in the first round of the playoffs was heartbreaking.

But when Tom Verducci interrupted the CNN Breaking News today and said there was a good chance that Cory Lidle was the pilot of the plane, it certainly put things in perspective.

God. This man was only 34 years old. He was a New York Yankee, who pitched just a few days ago in relief of Jaret Wright. I listened to him on WFAN maybe two days ago and saw pictures of him leaving Yankee Stadium on Monday. And now he's dead.

What a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and son, his twin brother, and the rest of his family and friends.

As much as pinstripes and championships are part of the legacy of the New York Yankees, sadly, tragedy and loss are too.

Rest in peace, Cory.
