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.

Jeremy Guthrie's Wife Jenny Guthrie

You know, there are some pretty clever and well-adjusted Mormons out there. Ken Jennings tops the list, but Jeremy Guthrie and his wife just joined the club. Jeremy Guthrie's wife Jenny Guthrie just recently finished running a marathon, attended a charity event for a Kansas City Hospital, and she helps Jeremy record his awesome "Throwdown Thursday" videos for Twitter.

If you've never heard of Throwdown Thursday, allow me to explain what Jenny helps him with. Basically every Thursday you record a video of yourself doing a crazy dunk on a rim height of your choice. So if you're not a super nasty NBA'er, you'll likely be dunking on an eight or nine-footer. There is no shame in that. Doing crazy dunks is difficult. Here is the video that Jenny helped Jeremy record for a Throwdown Thursday. That isn't even his best work either. Check out this insane alley-oop windmill jam. Look at the extension on that dunk. Anyway, maybe I'm just easily amused, but this type of thing earns both Jeremy and his wife Jenny cool points in my book.

Jenny is a mother of three and has been married to Jeremy since 2001. Jenny showed some class and attended the charity known as Diamond of Dreams in June. It's always nice to hear about a player wife or girlfriend giving back and doing something to help those less fortunate, and this particular event was for the University of Kansas Hospital's Neonatal Medical Home. So it was a charity to raise money for newborn babies in Kansas City. Gotta' give those newborns every little advantage you can when they're starting out in the Midwest, amirite??? I kid, of course-- Kansas isn't even where Jeremy and wife Jenny live. Since they're devout Mormons, they enjoy being among other Mormons in the great state of Utah. Once again, Ken Jennings, Jeremy Guthrie, and Jenny Guthrie are three great spokespeople.

Josh Willingham's Wife Ginger Willingham

Josh Willingham's wife Ginger Willingham is vying for the title of most religiously zealous Twitter user. Now, normally I tend to goof on these folks quite a bit, but since she's clearly a philanthropic type, how could I? I may have mistaken which title she's vying for, and it may actually be the most philanthropically active Twitter user.

Last year, Josh's wife Ginger attended the Juvenile Arthritis Foundation event to help fight youngsters getting old-person pains, and the event was held in a casino of all places. So I'm going to conclude the casino was portioning out a percentage of their take from the players. That's how I'd do it, anyway, because then all you gotta' do is show up and start gambling. If you win, you win, and if you lose, well, you're helping kids. Ginger also attended and helped with an event for leukemia and lymphoma with her kids dressing in various supportive capes and garbs with positive messages.

Speaking of kids, Josh and Ginger have three kids, all of them young and well-mannered. Josh's wife Ginger likes to show them off on the net and is proud of how her son Rhett greets any troops that he happens to see by shaking their hand and thanking them. Ginger's favorite word on Twitter is "bless" or any variation of it. In her blessed eyes, pretty much everything is a blessing. When something happens with Josh on the field or with his Kansas City Royals, it no doubt is fully attributable to the Lord and his blessings. Fair enough. If you'd told me a year ago that the Royals were going straight to the World Series, I'd have told you that would require divine intervention.
