Carlos Gomez is a stalled prospect, but a stalled prospect who has quickly ascended to the top of fantasy darling lists in the span of the past calendar year. Despite a slow start to his MLB career, Gomez has come on strong to become a five took player for the Milwaukee Brewers. During 2013 spring training, the Brewers rewarded him with a new three year contract securing that Carlos Gomez and wife Gerandy Gomez would be part of the Milwaukee family through the 2015 season.
Carlos Gomez's wife Gerandy Gomez is a woman of much mystery. We do know that upon signing his $24,000,000 deal with the Brewers, Carlos told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he would take Gerandy out to a good dinner, but that this deal wasn't a sign of splurging to come.
I've got a little money, but like people say, 'More money, more problems." I hope it doesn't bring me problems, because I'm looking for safety for my family, and I can give them safety - especially my son."
Speaking of son, Carlos (who is affectionately known as Go-Go), and Gerandy do have one son together. Gomez proudly shows off his boy regularly on Twitter with various pictures like a lot of proud parents, including the similar outfits seen here.
This is not Aramis Ramirez's wife Yudith Ramirez

We talk a lot about fantasy sports on the site and that’s because like most men, we are avid fantasy owners (some of us more than others). So when looking at this year’s 3rd basemen rankings, you can’t help but think it’s really shallow especially when taking injuries to ARod, Wright, Lawrie, Hanley, Headley, Middlebrooks, Zimmerman, Freese, Sandoval (and more) into consideration. One healthy name that really stands out is veteran Aramis Ramirez, playing for the Brewers as he enters his 16th season in the majors.
Ramirez is from the Dominican Republic, where he still lives. Originally drafted by the Pirates in 1994, Ramirez didn't really make a name for himself until he was traded to the Cubs in 2003. Since then he has been one of the most productive and consistent players at the hot corner, averaging 27 home runs and 96 RBIs per year. Even after suffering a dislocated shoulder early in 2009, he bounced back without really losing a step power-wise as you would think with a shoulder injury. However, the Cubs let him walk after the 2011 season, which turned out to be a mistake as Ramirez had a stellar season and finished 9th in MVP voting (the highest in his career).
Spending time with him in Dominican Republic during the offseason is Aramis Ramirez’s wife Yudith Ramirez. Yudith is also from the DR and lives there year round. Ramirez takes pride in his heritage noting that while works in America, he lives in the Dominican. The Ramirez’s have a son, Aramis Jr, who was born in 2004.

A few days ago, Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy suffered what is being termed a "boxers fracture" of his right hand in an off-field accident. Apparently, while Lucroy was fishing under the bed for a lost sock, his wife Sarah Lucroy (maiden name Sarah Stokes) shifted a suitcase which accidentally fell on Jonathan's hand. While the injury initially didn't seem severe, in fact he was pencilled in to play the next day, it has since become more serious. Lucroy has been placed on the DL and will reportedly miss 4-6 weeks as a result of the injury.
Brewers fans, who apparently don't have much else to do with their lives, have taken to the anonymity of the Internet to voice their frustrations with Lucroy's wife. Message boards and forums are one thing, but these fans initially began posting hate messages on her personal Facebook page - definitely too far. Jonathan took to the media, asking fans to chill out.
My wife has been getting hate mail on her Facebook, like, messages and stuff. It's really sad that these kinds of things happen from a freak thing. I mean, she didn't do it on purpose. It was an accident. Stranger things have happened.
Sarah Lucroy is from Lafayette, Louisiana and was born on June 7, 1986. The couple was married on July 7, 2010 and has one daughter together, Ellia Elisabeth Lucroy. Sarah Lucroy attended Lafayette Christian Academy high school. She was a graphic design major at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette before becoming, in her words, a "full-time wife and mommy". Sounds like a good gig to us, but she might want to give some more thought to
biting breaking the hand that feeds her in the future.
