Did public transportation send Cliff Lee to Philly?

If only the state of Texas has spend more money on infrastructure they might still have one of the best lefthanders in the game.
Kristin Lee, wife of Cliff Lee, says she can’t wait to use the public transportation in Philadelphia.
Writes Bud Kennedy of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Kristen Lee wanted her husband to return to the Phillies because of “how easy it is to get from point A to point B” in Philadelphia, she (told) the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Phillies play three miles from City Hall. The stadium is a $1.85 ride from downtown on the Broad Street Line, plus a three-block walk.
…”Even in Dallas,” Kristen Lee was quoted, “(from) where we were staying, it was hard to get to the ballpark.”
…Kristen Lee’s fondness for transit isn’t limited to commuter rail.
She’s also happy to be a 1 1/2-hour train ride away from road games in New York or Washington.
“We liked the easy travel on a train for our kids to other cities.”

  1. Funny, just stumbled across this. There’s examples of big stars in many different fields who actually were hindered in the careers because they were, for example, afraid of flying. Or of ships. Some of them could only play home matches because of it. But I guess this is good advertisement for public transportation :)
