From Phillie's beat writer Randy Miller:

"A good source tells me that Cliff Lee's wife is the main reason he didn't sign with Yankees. She wanted NO PART of New York, i was told. Apparently incident with Lee's wife had last fall with Yankees fans wasn't forgotten."

Attaway fans.

Not a Yankee hater, in fact I have a distaste for people who are jealous (yes, that's what you are) of great franchises, but I think it's awesome that his wife got the last laugh. Yankee fans can imagine her giving them all the figurative finger right now. lol

But hey, Yankee fans can take comfort in the fact that their team is better than everyone else's.

The funniest thing is that if you forget the guy in the picture is a superstar athlete, she looks actually better than what you'd think that guy could get.

Lee said he saw no drawbacks in returning to Philadelphia, though he couldn't put his finger on one overarching reason.

"I don't know, just the team, the atmosphere, the environment, the fans, the city. I mean, there's a lot of things," Lee explained. "My family enjoyed it here. The pitching staff. There's a lot of pros and not many cons when you start weighing things out."

"Players seem to like living here," Phillies chairman Bill Giles said earlier Tuesday. "There's nice housing -- and not as expensive as some other places if you want to buy or rent. The schools are good. I think our front office and manager and coaches have a good reputation around baseball right now as being good people."
