During the AL Championship Series games in New York between the Yankees and Rangers, fans were extremely rude to Kristen Lee, spitting and throwing beer in her direction and shouting obscenities, according to USA Today.All anyone should take from this report is that Lee's agent is doing his job.
But the treatment apparently did not change how the Lees feel about New York.
"The story is not an issue to us," Lee's agent, Darek Braunecker, told ESPNNewYork.com. "Her experience in New York is certainly a non-issue. She enjoys New York as much as anyone enjoys New York."
On the flip side of Kristen Lee's bad experience in New York is her close relationship with CC Sabathia's wife, Amber. They have been close since Sabathia and Cliff Lee played together in Cleveland.
Cliff Lee and Sabathia are friends as well. The Sabathias and Lees already were discussing where the Lees should live when it appeared as if the Yankees were going to make a trade for Lee in July.
How much does the asking price for Lee drop if other team's knew the Yankees were out of the sweepstakes?
That's right, a lot less, 10's of millions of dollars less, which means everyone loses including Darek Braunecker.
