I started writing this post making every hacky joke and recount of the Carols Quentin vs Zack Greinke brawl.
I took the indignant angle, trying to be mad with a guy for doing probably what I would have done. I mean, have you ever been hit with a baseball? It hurts.
I tried to blame him for leaning out over the plate, until pictures started getting tweeted across the web showing him way off the plate on the pitch in question (and ironically of hallway enemy Matt Kemp hanging way out over the same plate the same night).
I even took the ghastly unfunny route of making the bad "he must be "frustrated" at home" jokes, or "sure hope Carlos Quentin's wife Jeane Goff Quentin doesn't hit him with a pitch." Blech. Embarrassing.
Instead, we're taking the route we should have taken 40 minutes ago when we false started this damned post three times, so here we go:
San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin has had an up and down injury filled career. He's led the majors in HBP every year he's been in the league, and although durability isn't his greatest skill, dude is tough. While he's yet to see the same power numbers from his best year in Chicago in 2008, he always seems like a nice source of HR, RBI and runs for fantasy owners every year.
Carlos Quentin's wife Jeane Goff Quentin has been around since that great season in Chicago. The couple was married on November 29, 2008 in Palo Alto, CA. The couple met while attending Stanford together, where Jeane was an All American in Track & Field.

Chase Headley took the long road to the top of Major League Baseball. After being called up and sent down between the majors and AAA early to start his career, he's not going back down after the 2012 season he put together which finally saw Headley achieve the levels of success that his talent always seemed to point to being a possibility.
One can only imagine how challenging the routine has to be for a player who never knows what jersey he'll be putting on the next day. Fortunately for Chase, he was lucky to have his girlfriend along for the ride. Chase Headley's wife Casey Headley was along during the tough years working through the minors. The couple married November 15, 2008 after having met at the University of Tennesseee. Casey currently works as a personal trainer and nutrition counselor.
Chase and Casey liked the theme of names beginning with the letter 'C' and named their only child to date Colt. The family resides in Franklin, Tennessee during the offseason.

Despite almost Internet-wide searching by this site and many others, almost nothing is known about Mark Kotsay's wife Jamie Kotsay. We know that Mark and Jamie were married in 2000, and that they have three children - but seriously that's about it. Oh, and the fact that Mark became catholic due in part to his wife. Mark began going to Mass with her in early 2000 and they were married later that year. Jamie has had a significant impact on how Mark approaches life, which he explains below.
Being patient is also easier with the help of a loving wife like mine. She helps me to be patient not only while playing baseball, but, more importantly, while raising our kids.
Other than that, enjoy the photos. There's a reason everyone wants to know more about Jamie, and it should be pretty obvious.
