Oh, Jeffrey, Jeffrey, Jeffrey. You have been a bad monkey. Mets co-owner Jeff Wilpon's wife Valerie Wilpon is probably wishing he had kept his smart little comments to himself. Apparently Jeff has been busying himself with making former Vice President of ticket sales Leigh Castergine feel like filing a full-fledged lawsuit against him.

The reason she's suing is because Wilpon repeatedly tried to embarrass and humiliate her in front of her peers and co-workers about getting pregnant without being married. According to reports, Wilpon would make nasty little remarks like saying he's as opposed to putting up e-cigarette ads as he is to Leigh having a child without being married. What an idiot. Jeff, it's 2014. Wake up or go live in some retrograde commune where you can lord over people's personal lives like Jan Matthias. Gotta' be smarter than that, Jeffy boy. I really am curious about what Wilpon's wife Valerie is thinking about you now.

Valerie herself is likely worried at the prospect of the lawsuit since it may be determined that Castergine was fired wrongfully. Valerie recently did some good work hosting an event to promote Holocaust education programs in Arab and Muslim communities and nations where Holocaust denial has apparently seen an uptick recently. Sounds like a good cause. History is important, and education about important events that shaped history is vital. She seems like a lovely lady, and I would be willing to be she's pissed (or perhaps disappointed) at Jeff. Valerie is also known to have attended the YWCA Greenwich Brava Awards, which is an awards ceremony for rich people in Greenwich, Connecticut to celebrate and praise folks who give back to the community and help others. Again, Jeff Wilpon's wife seems like she's on the good side of the hedges and genuinely interested in being a good person. Jeff just got too mouthy, and now we've got a courtoom drama brewin'.

Josh Donaldson's Girlfriend Jillian Rose

Josh Donaldson's girlfriend Jillian Rose is a sweet girl, there to support and encourage her boyfriend, but she's not the sweetest lady in the house. That honorable title would go to little Rose-- the King Charles Spaniel that requires daily belly-rubbing. Based on the video just released by MLB.com, this dog is a star. She was featured prominently in the brief portrait about Josh and his life in the big city.

Josh's girlfriend Jillian was somewhat shocked when she first encountered Josh's first introduction of the "Donaldson"-- a mohawk with a long rat tail in the back. She told the story last year. Apparently he had tried to cut the mohawk himself, started screwing it up, and then got a celebrity hairstylist to finish off the job. She said she talked to the hairstylist's girlfriend and joked about it. The hairstyle itself was nothing too outlandish, but the rat tail is a little gross (at least to some). I wonder if it would be possible for the "Donaldson" to go mainstream?

Things are poppin' pretty nicely for Josh and his girlfriend Jillian as it relates to their living situation in 'Frisco. Having had a cursory peek at their apartment in the MLB video, it appears pretty nice. If you consider San Francisco prices, it looks like they are poised to enter the uptown club reserved for the likes of, well, rich athletes and movie stars. For now, though, Donaldson's only pulling down half a mill a year, but give him time. After his contract opens up, that is very much bound to change, and we could even see an upgrade in the dog department. Donaldson and Jillian made the decision to get a little dog because of the size of their apartment, but when the millions start pouring in, we might be expecting a full-fledged Bernese Mountain Dog for the lovely couple.

Fernando Rodney's Wife Helen Rodney

Fernando Rodney's wife Helen Rodney can hit his changeup. She's been hitting it in life ever since she married a professional baseball player. I sometimes think the women married to baseball players have it the roughest because of their punishing schedules, frequency of trading, and relatively low mean salary. Fernando and Helen have four kids ages 2 to 13. That right there will keep the lady busy for much of the day.

Little is known about Fernando's wife Helen other than she is from the Dominican Republic and she has a curvy bod. She used to work at The Chamber of Deputies in the Dominican Republic, which I think is their actual governmental headquarters. So maybe she was takin' some notes for a Dominican representative or something. Anyway, now all she's got to worry about is what kind of mansion she wants to live in. Fernando's scheduled to finish up a 2-year fifteen million dollar contract in 2015, and he'll probably keep right on going after that.

The man's got himself over 200 lifetime saves and was an all-star for the second time in his career this year. He's already got 62 strikeouts and may finish with more than he's ever had in any season. He throws a serious fastball (somewhere upwards of 96) but everybody talks about his palmball changeup that hovers in the low 80's. I imagine it's an absolutely awful combo to try and hit, and this is one of the reasons he's been able to provide for his lovely wife Helen. Helen, meanwhile, is walking posing for pictures in some pretty legit MTV Cribs pads. The few photographs I've seen of her feature a column in the background. The last time I saw a column in someone's home, I was in a restored castle on a tourist tour through Spain.
