    The wife of ace left-hander Cliff Lee was among family members of Texas Rangers players subjected to obscenities and taunts during the AL championship series at Yankee Stadium.

    But Lee says fans will be fans and you can't control 50,000 people.

    He pitches tonight against the Giants as the World Series opens in San Francisco.

    The Yankees are expected to be one of the bidders for Lee when he is eligible to be a free agent after the World Series.

    When asked, Lee said what happened last week during the ALCS wouldn't have any impact on his offseason decision.

    His wife, Kristen, was sitting with other Rangers family and friends in the visiting family section at Yankee Stadium during the playoffs.
