It's all but totally confirmed that Joe Maddon will be the Cubs' new manager, and Joe Maddon's wife Jaye Maddon is knows exactly how to transport her dogs to Chicago. The couple had a house in California where their three dogs lived, but they decided last year to move them to Florida where Joe was coaching the Rays. Jaye could not stomach moving her Great Dane and English Bulldog via plane since the Great Dane suffers from bloat and putting dogs in a cargo hold is generally pretty horrible. So their solution was to buy a recreational vehicle-- a home on wheels.

Now it looks like Joe and wife Jaye will put that badboy to use once again. Jaye and Joe met in California, and they've actually already got three separate homes in Pennsylvania, Tampa, and California. That will likely change now, but the California home is certainly not going anywhere since Jaye spends most of her time there teaching law at the University of Phoenix. The couple met back in 1995 when they were both married to other people, and it was only in 2008 when they finally tied the knot. Jaye was working as an accountant at an athletic club that Joe used to go when he was the Angels coach, and he used to leave her tickets to the games since she was and remains a huge baseball fan. Must be pretty cool to have a wife who actually digs baseball when you're a baseball manager. Too bad she's an Angels fan and not a Cubs fan. The two teams don't really even play each other.

The couple also both like fast cars, according to the Tampa Tribue. They apparently have quite a lot in common, and their living arrangement seems to be working out for them quite well (they apparently don't seem a whole lot of each other since Jaye prefers to stay in California. Jaye's best friend says of the couple: "I would say they are perfectly matched."

Karlos Williams' girlfriend Miranda Wilhelm is trying to call off investigations into a domestic battery complaint involving her and Karlos. As you might imagine, this is really bad PR for Florida State, as the school has been riddled with these issues recently. There have been three separate Flordia State starters to be accused of spousal abuse in the past two years. I don't really know how to respond to that. Can we just not hit the ladyfolk, please?

Mirana made a statement on Instagram with pictures explaining how she suffers from abuse, and she includes shots of welts and bruises. It's important to know that Karlos Williams was never mentioned by name. Here is the statement:

Domestic violence is NEVER okay. I have learned why women keep secrets and [are] scared to come forward. I'm ashamed to say I did the same thing but I am ready to speak up for women in situations like myself. I pray one day everyone sees your true colors and for what you really are. This was done to me 2 nights ago by a man I lived with for two years and bared two children by. Hopefully therapy will help you one day fix this and your sons never even work their hands to hurt a woman, mind you a pregnant woman to this extent.

The battery complaint report was not filed by her, and she told everyone she'd never spoken with the police. She has since deleted her Instagram account, and we already know she's asking police to stop investigations;  they rarely do in cases like these, as I understand it. We can postulate that one of her friends or family members saw her Instagram post and made a call to police on behalf of Wilhelm. You'd like to think there's a Larry David-type situation that explains all of this-- you know, she'd been to a really intense masseuse that gave her bruises, and she was playing a joke over Instagram. Sadly, that seems highly unlikely. I'm curious to see where this goes.

The status of their relationship is unclear at this time. There are conflicting reports suggesting they have split, while others indicate they are still together.

Jose Canseco's Girlfriend Leila Knight

Okay, so Jose Canseco blew his finger off. You've probably already heard about it, but it's bad news. The reason Jose is in more trouble than you might think is that he really screwed up an important artery, and there's a possibility he'll lose the whole hand. Jose Canseco's girlfriend Leila Knight has been responding two a ton of texts, tweets, and phone calls assuring everyone that Jose will be okay, but also making it known that she's worried about her man's future use of his hand.

This woman has got a good sense of humor, and she does a bit of everything. She's a model, of course, but she also has done some stunt work. Yes, she has been a stuntwoman, and a lot of her ability to do stunts probably comes from her gymnastics background. When she was little, she caught the bug and competed throughout her adolescence. She then became a gymnastics coach and helped kids train and compete for eight years. She has also appeared in various photo shoots, commercials, and even an episode or two of television. Apparently she was in an episode of the show Cougar Town (the Courteney Cox series on ABC). Lastly, Canseco's girlfriend Leila also calls herself a professional poker player. This is pretty unusual, and I'm very curious to know what tournaments she's competed in, or if she plays strictly cash games. Does she make a profit? I have a friend who plays poker professionally, and you've apparently got to be quite disciplined and focused.

Aside from Jose's interesting girlfriend Leila, it's probably worth noting how interesting a guy Canseco himself is. I love the guy. I think he's really entertaining and a bit of a goofball. As grim as blowing off your finger is, it may get classified as "just another Canseco moment" a few years from now. My favorite Canseco moment was when the 6'4" former baseball player challenged a 5'9" former football player to a boxing match, and got knocked out in the first round. He then went on to try and prove himself in mixed martial arts.
