Chris Iannetta's wife Lisa Iannetta bailed on teaching little monsters the ABC's. I can't say I blame any elementary school teacher for quitting when they get hitched. Did you ever see "Kindergarten Cop"? That's how well I would fare as a teacher, except I'd be less tense because I wouldn't have to worry about finding that weird bad guy with the long ponytail.

As the wife of Chris Iannetta, Lisa has done her part with the Angels outreach programs and charities. She recently attended the Angels' charity event benefiting Special Olympics and helped raise 29,000 bucks. It was reported that Chris signed four dozen balls for the charity event, and that was apparently the most of any Angels player. Hey, that's what happens when you get really competitive people together-- they compete to out-sign baseballs with sharpies. Apparently there is some kind of grab-bag involved in the charity, and Lisa got to be the girl who orchestrates it. This apparently is quite the honor, and only the hottest wives get the chance to be the official grab-bag girl. Nice work being hot, Lisa! It sure beats teaching kids how to write cursive.

The two have a daughter named Ashlynn whose about a year or two old. I am guessing that by the time Ashlynn starts third grade, she'll be thanking her lucky stars that her mom didn't keep her day job. Nobody likes to have to be taught by their own mom. Chris's wife Lisa has thus far been a good housewife and mother for the little one, teaching her the basics of baseball and occasionally taking her to games. There's only so much you can teach a two-year old about competitive sports before you begin to really try their patience. They don't call it the terrible two's for nothing, and this is right about the time Ashlynn starts to learn the word "no," as in "no more baseball tutuorials and in-depth analysis, mom."

Huston Street's wife Lacey Street is liking his can-do attitude. Aside from being a two-time all-star with a consitently low ERA, he's amassed enough money to start investing in big-time real estate deals. A bit more on that in a moment. First, let's get a sense for Lacey the mom.

So far, she and Huston have had two kids, Ripken and Ryder. Lacey was around when Huston received the news that his dad passed about a year ago. They were both at home in Austin after Huston flew home to start the offseason. Huston's wife Lacey had just been promised an "awesome offseason" when she noticed she had a bunch of missed calls late at night. Shortly after that, Huston learned from his brother that his dad had died. Always a bummer.

The couple has bounced back recently, as Huston and his wife are in the midst of a somewhat controversial land purchase in Austin. They had negotiated with the city to be able to raise the admissible height of a building to 96 feet, and everyone else in the neighborhood reportedly freaked out about that. They were not digging the prospect of an 8 or 9 story building in the land. Lacey fully supports the plan, as it sets up her family to have a prosperous life after Huston retires. The land they bought was reported to be worth about $5.5 million. You've got to applaud the foresight of these folks. They seem deadset on not falling into any boredom or financial traps after Huston's professional sports career is over.

Matt Shoemaker's Wife Danielle Shoemaker

Matt Shoemaker's wife Danielle Shoemaker is not a bad lady, but the internet certainly opened up a can of hydrofluoric acid after her tweet about Boston Red Sox third baseman Will Middlebrooks breaking up Shoemaker's no-hitter a few weeks back. She tweeted a simple but effective "Middlebrooks you butthole," and then received a torrent of scorn on her Twitter account.

Matt's wife Danielle then proceeded to delete the tweet and apologize, saying "Wow social media is harsh. It was all in good fun @middlebrooks. Didn't know a little joke would upset so many people!" I'm a Red Sox fan, but Danielle had every right to stand her ground. Trashing players is what social media is for-- at least in the realm of sports. It livens things up to have a wife talking a bit of smack to the competition. I would've liked to have seen Middlebrooks' reaction to Danielle's tweet. I'm sure he would have kept it classy, but can you imagine if he got angry and started throwing out obscenities? Nothing beats a heated Twitter battle.

There is no bigger fan of Matt Shoemaker than his wife Danielle. Her entire Twitter feed is dedicated to tracking his every move on the mound and anything and everything that analysts and fans say about him. She could tell you all of his statistics month-to-month. She frequently posts quotes and stats about his recent performance, which, by the way, has been stellar. In August, Shoemaker was 5-1 with a .99 ERA and a .144 opponent batting average. He's the first rookie since 2001 (Sabathia) to get 14+ wins and 115+ strikeouts, she posts. Well, thanks Danielle, because that is a good stat and you are a helluva' fan. Matt and his wife are both from Michigan, and Danielle has put Michigan as her official residence on her Facebook page. None of that Californian lifestyle for her.
