Kristen Lee: Cliff Lee’s Wife

The New York Yankees general handle themselves with class. That’s not to say they aren’t against a bench brawl every now and again but generally speaking, they do their name proud. However, various reports indicate that the fans at Yankee Stadium were not very nice to the opposing teams guests. Kristen Lee, wife of Texas Ranger Cliff Lee, was reportedly subjected to insults, thrown beer and even fans spitting in her direction.

ESPN was the first source to mention this horrible behavior. The analyst wonder if that might not be just enough to keep the Yankees from getting Cliff in their house next year. It seems obvious that the Yankees will go after him but if his wife was treated so terrible, why would he bother to accept even the invitation to discuss a contract. Only time will tell if Kristen Lee can come away from those horrors and if money can do the talking.

Cliff Lee’s agent is trying his best to make this seem like a non-issue but Cliff’s wife wasn’t voicing the same message. Cliff’s agent says that the incident doesn’t matter at all and she says that opinion is blatantly influenced by the behavior of the Yankee fans. This could be the best move the Yankees ever made for Seattle because chances are, if the Yankees don’t get Cliff Lee and his wife Kristen to come to the big apple, the Seattle Mariners might just get their hands on the whole Lee family.

MLB Trades: Blake DeWitt, Kerry Wood, Ryan Theriot

Unless you are more than vaguely familiar with the way the MLB trades work, you are most likely shaking your head in pure confusion right now. When the trade deadline arrives, someone can compile a complete list of all the players and organizations that made moves in the final hours. When the moves are put to a halt, then that long list of farm league players and big league guys can be assembled. As for Blake DeWitt, Kerry Wood and Ryan Theriot, just know that there names are on that trade list alongside hundreds of others.

The Dodgers gave their second basement his notice today when they removed him from the field during batting practice.

The Yankees who already look really good heading into the final stretch have added another reliever to their roster.

Analyst, coaches, general managers and players have all chimed in on the number of moves taking place right now.

The big leagues have rarely ever offered up anything that resembles stability and the proof is right here. Veteran players, Blake DeWitt, Kerry Wood and Ryan Theriot may have been surprised by the move but most likely aren’t bothered by the moves especially considering all the other folks getting shuffled around.

George Steinbrenner: Controversial Yankees Owner Dead at 80

For the second time in three days, the Yankees’ Organization are forced to mourn the loss of one of their own. Bob Sheppard was the most popular Yankees announcer in history and he lost his life on Sunday. Now, on the day of the 2010 MLB All Star game, the Yankees are forced to mourn again. George Steinbrenner didn’t always get along with the players, coaches and managers that came his way, but he rarely let anyone out of his site without leaving a positive mark on their lives.

Hank and Hal Steinbrenner have been in charge of most of the Yankees transactions since 2006. Their father a U.S. Navy veteran was suffering from various illnesses and reluctantly turned over the reigns. Under the big man’s thumb, the Yankees won 11 pennants and 7 World Series title. George Steinbrenner was known as a ruler of his team with his “grooming policy” being one of his most popular acts as a team owner.

Players all over major league sports are commonly sporting rough and ragged looks. But, under the iron rulers thumb, his grooming policy mandated that players and coaches kept their hair shorter than their collar and the only facial hair he allowed was a mustache. In 2010, you will see various athletes all over professional sports who could have learned a huge lesson from this man regarding impressions and appearance. Regardless of whether various MLB players, coaches and managers liked George Steinbrenner, the fact of the matter is, they loved him and respected him, even when they didn’t like him.

Bob Sheppard: Derek Jeter’s Special Connection

The Yankees’ history runs deep. It’s not just the players or the coaches, the retired jerseys or the awesome pitchers, the Yankees are simply but “The Yankees”. The Yankees unfortunately lost the man who is known as the voice of the Yankees in 2007 to illness and he lost his life this morning at the sprite age of 99. Derek Jeter was so attached to this great announcer. Bob Sheppard was a simple speech teacher but he stole the hearts of many, including Derek Jeter.

Reggie Jackson quickly named him The Voice of God. Once Sheppard left the Yankees, Derek Jeter requested that a recording of his voice be used to announce him when he went to bat at home. Jeter is probably among one of the least famous players to get attached to this announcer. Bob Sheppard was the rock for many Yankees stars before Jeter.

As far as announcers go, the methodology differs from team to team and from announcer to announcer. Some teams like the loud, excited and anxiousness of their hometown guys. Others believe in the Yankees announcer and feel most comfortable when they heard his calm, soothing voice. The fact that Bob Sheppard’s voice was that special is evident by the fact that a youthful player like Jeter wants to hear his voice before he goes to bat at every home game.

Jose Montero: Young and Mighty

The Seattle Mariners and the New York Yankees are discussing a trade deal. For that matter, New York has made an offer for Cliff Lee but nothing has been completed yet. The Mariners are looking for someone with some pop on the bat. If all goes according to planned, Jose Montero, a sprite twenty year old will be wearing a Mariners uniform sooner than later.

Just in case the Mariners get their hands on this gem, fans are going to want to know more about him before they jump in and start cheering for him. The young guy is 6’4″ and about 225 pounds.  He has played catcher up until this point but according to management, he is mostly likely going to make a move to first base. Just for the record, Jose Montero was rated the fourth best prospect in baseball at the beginning of this season by Baseball America.

That puts him along side the likes of Jason Heyward, Steven Strasburg and Mike Stanton. Those three guys are already in the big leagues. He manage to be a Yankees via a trade in 2006 and now he is probably heading cross-country to lend a helping hand to the Mariners line up. Sadly, Jose Montero and his future rest in the hands of other players and managers and he can’t do much right now to change that.
