Yankees Fans Spit on Cliff Lee’s Wife, She May Prefer Texas

From the department of "Philly Fans Aren't The Worst People on Earth," comes this little nugget.

Cliff Lee, who would probably still like to return to Philly if we could afford him, might think twice about signing with the Yankees.  His wife seems to like Texas… and she was spit on by Yankees fans.  [USA Today] via [Hardball Talk]

“That’s the greatest thing, being so close to home . . . Cliff can fit in anywhere, but it makes my life a lot easier. We’ve never had a short commute before. Having a direct flight from Little Rock is great . . .”

. . . Perhaps the Rangers’ greatest sales pitch simply was having Kristen sit in the visiting family section at Yankee Stadium during the playoffs. She says there were ugly taunts. Obscenities. Cups of beer thrown. Even fans spitting from the section above.

“The fans did not do good things in my heart,” Kristen says.

“When people are staring at you, and saying horrible things, it’s hard not to take it personal.”

This was the same game that Yankees fans also threw beer bottles into the Rangers' bullpen.  But it is probably also fair to point out that Lee's wife was likely in the rather large section of Rangers fans that was constantly shown on TV.  The spits (verb?) were probably not directed specifically at her. Still wrong, however.

You know how this story would have played out if it happened in Philly.

H/T to Victoria for the heads up

  1. Bring Cliff Lee to Philly?! How dumb are you? WHAT A WASTE! Is starting pitching a concern AT ALL?! Absolutely not. If the front office won’t be spending 15 million on Werth, a position that actually needs to be covered, why the FUCK would they shell out 25 million on the position of the team that is in the absolute least amount of need of?

  2. Agree with C-Rock. The lack of hitting lost the Phillies the NCLS, not the pitching. The pitching is what kept us in it.
    People need to let Cliff Lee go.

  3. The Phils had their chance with Lee and now it’s over. That’s terrible the treatment Lee’s wife recieved in NY. There’s rotten fans all over the place. I wish Lee good luck in the World Series. If I’m rooting for anybody, it would be for this pitcher alone. I liked and respected him when he played for us and that still stands to this day. Loved the way he hussled on and off the mound. Wish him and his family the very best!

  4. Nothing more than a raucous group of Phillies fans taking in a game in NY. Has to be. Nobody else does this kind of thing.

  5. If they can get him for a discount, why not chuck Blanton, use his 8.5 million, don’t pick up Romero’s option, and perhaps chuck Ibanez and his 11.5 million butt out of town, you culd potentially have room for him and Werth..

  6. guys, i don’t think the phillie will go hard after lee, but you bet they will be interested. cliff would love to come here, and as we’ve seen before, you can never have too much pitching.
    as jim salisbury said, they owe it to themselves and the fans to at least entertain the idea. no offense to oswalt and blanton, but if cliff lee started game 4 or 6, they probably win.
    but yes, i completely agree that starting pitching should not be a concern.

  7. Jason Porta you are really a moron. Who would want Ibanez at that price?! That is the exact problem, NO ONE! And trading and eating half of his salary entirely defeats the purpose. Then in all of your brillance you are suggesting we cut the bullpen, the things the needs BY FAR the most work in this offseason. Oh and good luck trying to get a team to pay Blanton and his 4.82 ERA 8.5 million. You are an idiot, do not ever post again. Everyone needs to understand if it was possible to dump the bad players and sign all of the good ones, it would be done. Believe it or not none of you posses knowledge the front office doesn’t. Werth and Lee will both be in different uniforms next year. Lee probably in Pinstripes and Werth probably in Boston/Los Angeles/Detroit. Deal with it.

  8. In no way could you say if Lee was pitching game 6 that we would of won compared to Oswalt. Oswalt gave up two runs. He’s a human, it’s not always going to be a shutout. Maybe if we had a hot bat or two we would of got some of those runners in scoring position to actually score. I cannot understand how you would say Lee would of won the game compared to Oswalt. That’s crazy.

  9. If Cliff Lee wants to come back to Philly….then I think we should give him the oppertunity if we can afford him!!!!

  10. Kyle, thank you for the rational response.
    Anyone who knows baseball knows that pitching is the most important thing in baseball. Good pitching almost always beats good hitting. Ever notice how great hitters still get shut down by great pitchers? That’s why we lost this year to the Giants, a team with pitching on par with ours. Pretty much all of their pitchers not named Jonathan Sanchez nor Ramon Ramirez did a great job. Our pitchers did well too, but at the end of the day both Chooch and Gload got robbed on screamers that they hit that ended the inning. It was this kind of luck that played a huge factor.
    It’s dumb to reject out of hand at least pursuing options for getting Cliff Lee. The Phillies know what they can do. Cliff Lee apparently would like to be here. If they are able to make it happen while addressing other needs, then why not? You don’t know what’s possible if you never even entertain an idea. You can’t think like a loser and not even try. That’s the worst thing you can do.

  11. typical yankee fans! you would think that since they have a pretty good chance of getting him in the offseason that the fans wouldn’t do that! i hope he stays in Texas(or comes to philly which i highly unlikely)!!

  12. Ice water, Wind and cloud friends want to remember in heart! Yuanyang on the lake, The butterfly on the flowers, Wish you are happy over me! Read it in thine heart, That smile on the face, Sincere wishes to write in the information.
