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.It's bad enough that the fans at the stadium this October were a quiet embarrassment, but now we find out that a few morons may have actually hurt the Yankees chances of landing Cliff Lee.
"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."
If you want to make light of this that's fine. There is a good chance this will all come down to money anyway. But remember how important CC's wife was in his decision making process, and then imagine a few months earlier a New Yorker, and better yet, a Yankees fan, spit and threw beer on her?
