  1. What else could Lee say? That he wouldn't come to the Yankees if we were the last team on earth? That the Rangers no longer need worry about making an offer competitive with the Yankees?

  2. We have Yankees fans who feel entitled to do whatever they want at the Stadium because they pay big bucks for their tickets, and the Yankees' management then uses those bucks to apologize for the actions of the fans. Beautiful.

  3. Call me a conspiracy nut but doesn't the time seem a bit convenient. One day after the world finds out that his wife is going to push him to stay in Texas because it is close to their house in Arkansas she tells USAToday how badly she was treated in Yankee stadium. Every time TBS showed the visiting families they seemed to be in a pretty nice section of the stadium and quite happy.

  4. Sorry to hear that the fans are like that. I know how it feels – Hawkeye Stadium, for the U of Iowa is the same way – every football game the fans do their best to make the experience a living hell for opposing fans. Like bullys everywhere, if there is a block of travelling fans, the abuse is verbal.

    But when I attended my first (and last) with my wife, there were two Illinois fans behind us in the bleachers. Two very polite and unassuming fans, who went out of their way NOT to instigate anything. Yet when they went to the concessions, Hawkeye "fans" poured drinks on their seats. Very classy behaviour.

    And I am ashamed to this day that we didn't do anything about it – but at that stadium, that crowd, a guy and his wife don't have much more power than the visiting fans. Sad.

    That said, Ms. Lee has to be intelligent enough to realize that if her husband is in pinstripes, she can go wherever she wants in NYC, whenever she wants, however she wants, and have fans shower her with hosannas.

  5. I think Lee's wife will be forgetting this whole incident very soon…he pitched game one like he was ready to come to ny!
