• HaroldHecuba: Mike Mussina is EASTERN EUROPEAN, not Italian....

So my buddy who works at ESPN’s Cold Pizza emailed me this afternoon to tell me that a small plane crashed into a Manhattan apartment building ten blocks from where he lives.

That was about two hours ago. He just called me to say that two people died in the crash and one of them is Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle.

There is a rumor that the other person in the plane was OF Bobby Abreu. But there is absolutely nothing factual to support that. NOTHING.

More to come as this story develops.

UPDATE: ESPN is reporting that Lidle was alone in his plane. That pretty much puts the Bobby Abreu rumor to rest. Three other people reportedly died in the crash, presumably all residents of the building that Lidle crashed into.
