Yankees Acquire Cliff Lee In Middle of Game 2 of ALCS

Yankees Acquire Lee in 6th Inning By Jonathan Suttin New York (AP) -- The New York Yankees were able to acquire Texas Rangers' pitcher Cliff Lee in the middle of game two of the American League Championship Series on Monday night. "He was on fire and I felt like that was a performance worthy of a New York Yankee," said New York general manager Brian Cashman.  "I mean he was striking everybody out and we need a guy like that to help our team win," Cashman continued. The move came as a big surprise not only to Lee's teammates, but to the ace pitcher as well. "I was sitting in the dugout getting ready to pitch the sixth inning and strike out some more of those guys," Lee said.   "All of a sudden someone taps my shoulder.  It was a man wearing a tux and white gloves.  He called me Mr. Lee and was standing on a red carpet.  He told me to follow him down the hallway," according to Lee. The man in his mid-70's is named Hobson and has been the Yankee's official butler for the last 47 seasons. "Yeah, he got the royal treatment," said Yankee team captain Derek Jeter.  "Hobson is the best.  He always shines my shoes and personally irons my underwear during the game.  He even gave my mom one of his kidneys," added Jeter. Lee wasn't sure what to do when a Hobson said in a dry English accent, "This way sir."   Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington told him he had to go. "I felt bad to let Lee go because he was pitching great for us in the playoffs this year.  The Rangers really never make the playoffs, but what's good for the Yankees is good for baseball...I guess, " said a clearly deflated Washington. Lee was then led down the hallway to the Yankee locker room where he was quite impressed with what he saw. "My goodness there are chandeliers everywhere, " said a wide-eyed Lee, "and my locker is bigger than the basement in my house.  MY LOCKER, not the locker room." Lee says he felt "instantly more talented" when putting on his Yankee pinstripes.  "I suddenly felt like I was much better than any other baseball players in the league," Lee said boldly, "I mean look at Nick Swisher.  He SUCKED when he played for the White Sox.  I mean HE REALLY SUCKED, but now he's a hot-shot power hitter because he wears pinstripes and doesn't have his name on the back of his jersey." Yankee fans would have cheered for the move, but every fan had already left by the fifth inning since their team was trailing in the game.
