Yusmeiro Petit's Wife Veronica Salas

Yusmeiro Petit's wife Veronica Salas is not superstitious. Clearly, she would not have done what she did if she was, and I don't blame her for what she did either. I'm talking, of course, about the near-perfect game her husband missed last year back in September.

Yusmeiro and his wife were both at the game, and Petit was pitching. He'd pitched a perfect game all the way up to the 9th inning with two outs and a 3-2 count, and then police escorted Veronica down to the field so she could celebrate her husband's feat, and some guy got a hit. Damn-- that is rough! It would have been the 24th perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball. He would have had a place in history. Anyway, Yusmeiro's wife Veronica had nothing to do with it, in my opinion. I don't buy into that superstitious mumbo jumbo. It was simply a coincidence that right when she was escorted down to the field, the fella' managed to scrounge a base. I wonder if Veronica told Yusmeiro that she was being escorted down to the field before the game was over? He probably had a good laugh at it.

The couple does not have kids, and they're enjoying it. Coincidentally, Yusmeiro's blown perfect game was not the only shot he had at the record books. He did, in fact, break the National League record for retiring the most consecutive batters. The previous record was 41 by a dude named Jim Barr, and Yusmeiro beat that this August. To add evidence to the theory that superstition is nonsense, take a guess if Yusmeiro Petit's wife Veronica Salas was in the stands the night when Petit broke Barr's record. After it happened, Barr commented, "I guess my life's over now. I can't rest on my laurels anymore."

Jason Vargas' Wife Shelley Vargas

Jason Vargas' wife Shelley Vargas is another case of Major League Baseball's endearing high school sweetheart syndrome. Of all the big sports (baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and even golf) I am now quite confident that baseball has the most dudes married to their high school sweethearts. And what a sweet heart she has, that Shelley.

Jason's wife Shelley is a Cali girl, born in Lake Forest. The couple upped and moved to sunny and scorching Phoenix, Arizona only last year after Jason signed to the Royals. She's totally thrilled what they've done so far too. You can only imagine how happy Jason is even though he came from a red hot Angels team. Shelley and Jason have three kids, one of them, Lucas, is under a year old. The other two, Joshua and Elizabeth, are 3 and 5 respectively.

Shelley is busy with the kids. That's how it works when you load up on chillins'. She spends most of her time caring for them at home in Phoenix, and they do attend spring training games that Kansas City plays there. That was sort of the point of moving there, as they saw it. Of all the times to move from one city to another, you'd think they caught the best time for the kids. They're too young to be that affected by moving from one place to another, and it's a good deal for everybody if they're in Phoenix now. Real estate is pretty darn cheap out there. Jason has racked up over 24 million bucks in his career, so Shelley can't say that he's not a provider. He's also said that he's light on hobbies and spends most of his free time helping Shelley care for the three kids. Thatta' boy, Jason. Get in there and change some diapers. Those kids don't care how well you pitch against the Giants.

Gregor Blanco's wife Mirna Blanco likes to hit the beach, and I like to see her hitting the beach. The lovely lady looks even lovelier when she's at the beach in her two piece. She's pretty funny too. I like her tweet regarding what sorts of text messages girls get: 'You gotta text her goodnight if she's special. The other bitches just get the "oh my bad I fell asleep" text in the morning.' Classic, Mirna.

One of Gregor's wife Mirna's favorite activities is hitting the gym. I'm not sure who's there taking pictures of her doing ab crunches while she's there, but she's got the pictures up on her Instagram to prove it, and she's even made a special display that says "abs." That was thoughtful. Though I don't have full confirmation of this, I'm going to assume that Gregor met Mirna in Venezuela. The reason I think this is they're both from there, and Gregor has gone back and forth to and from Venezuela many times over his career to play ball in the winter months. She'll occasionally tweet something to show her support of her home country and various causes to help it. She's also posted a cool picture of a whole gaggle of Major League players from various teams holding the Venezuelan flag. Represent.

Gregor and wife Mirna have a boy named Gregor Jr. and have been married a little over seven years. Gregor actually just gave Mirna a new Jeep Grand Cherokee for her birthday. I once received a cool Matchbox Grand Cherokee for my birthday, or maybe it was Wrangler. Anyway, it's nice to be bankin' some major league bucks. As you might imagine, the couple is very excited to be involved in the World Series, and Mirna will be rallying around big G as the series gets underway.
