I hope that baseball -- The Yankees, if not MLB -- does the classy thing and provides support for Lidle's family.

I *think* George will do the right thing. The players association won't because he was a replacement player. It is unreal that is still an issue.

I know a replacement player and he swears the Red Sox gave him no choice, play or be released.

MLB is paying the widow's benefit

his wife would be entitled to about $165,000 to $170,000 annually, which is 95 percent of the maximum, an amount indexed for inflation. There is an additional dependent benefit.

Did you read the article? She will be receiving $165-170K a year from MLB and his child will receive an unknown amount as well. I'm not sure the Yankees or MLB have much say re: the life insurance payout and really if it said dying in an airplane you were piloting will void the policy she shouldn't get paid just because of who she was married to or how tragic her husbands death was.

Why would you care? If anyone of us were to die in an accident outside of work, do think that our employers would be concerned enough about our families to support them? NO!

I know my company wouldnt support my wife but they would definately help her out if she needed it. Some companies arent as cut throat as you would like to think.
