In baseball news, God sured up his bullpen yesterday with the aquisition of Yankees' pitcher Cory Lidle. The veteran was traded to New York earlier this season along with Bobby Abreu near the trading deadline, but recently wore out his welcome by not informing the team of his impending death. The events were set into motion during the team's division series matchup with the Detroit Tigers in which third baseman Alex Rodriguez effectively ended his teammate's life with an 0 for 3 performance in game 4. When reached for comment after the game, Rodriguez stated, "Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. But all I can say is that my lack of production killed our pitching staff in this series". No word as to whether or not Rodriguez will be charged in the case. Yankee captain Derek Jeter also added, "There are times that you just play a team on a roll. In this series, we really just flew into a wall that was the Detroit Tigers.".
Ok, so I'm a dick. But come on, how is this guy anything but a moron? After only having his pilot's license for a few months, he made the decision to take his plane out in bad weather over Manhattan, which he then crashed into a building, killing innocent people. Say, for example, that he had instead been speeding in his porsche in the rain and killed two people; Would people be so understanding and sympathetic then? Fuck no, they wouldn't. They'd be talking about what a terrible person he was for being so reckless. Well an inexperienced pilot flying around the most densely populated area in the United States in bad weather is being reckless. I bet the people in the apartment complex that woke up to a plane in the face would agree with me.
