We've always been fans of Gio Gonzalez here, but after seeing Gio Gonzalez's girlfriend Berenice Lea Moures, it appears there's something extra we've been missing.
The stunning Moures is bilingual in French and English (which immediately confused us as we thought she was Hispanic). She graduated from the University of Maryland in 2009 with a double major in Economics and French Language & Literature. It appears her econ degree has paid off as she now holds a high ranking position with a company helping set global economic positions.
It's unclear how long Gio and Berenice have been together, as we last heard whispers of Gio dating Angela Rypien during the Nationals 2012 run towards the postseason. There is plenty of photographic evidence of Berenice attending Nationals games this season, both home and away. This is one we'll definitely be keeping an eye on, and Gio should do what he can to hold on to.
For a long time, Alex Morgan, Hope Solo and Adriana Lima have been at the top of our highest rated WAG poll. I think we have a new contender for this title, and Ms. Moures may vault herself into the top tier. Let's vote it up, folks... 10 in my book.
My wife is a saint. She's put up with insane workout schedules, and crazy diet regimens, she's handled shoulder length hair and a razor-shaved head without flinching. She's allowed me out in public in ridiculous clothing, and listened to my random rantings and theories which would drive most women mad. The one thing, however, my wife has maintained a consistent passionate loathing for, is a full grown unkempt beard. While my wife is an amazingly patient woman, it looks like Nationals 2B has been able to find someone to put up with the insanity of the mountain man look.
Danny Espinosa's girlfriend Sarah Mosher has embraced Espinosa's glorious full Brian-Wilson-esque overgrowth. Following the surprising loss in the NLDS to the St. Louis Cardinals, Espinosa kept the playoff beard growing, but managed to find Mosher along the way. If Mosher hated the beard, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Upon arrival at 2013 Spring Training, Espinosa shaved clean in a symbolic demonstration of the Nats fresh start to the season.
The world first learned of Sarah Mosher in a segment on MLB TV where Kevin Millar was taken aback by the sight of Mosher. In the video on the right, you can hear Millar go more Musberger-than-Musberger when first seeing Mosher. Well done, Danny, and well done, Kevin.
The teenage phenom, and as of tonight, reigning NL Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper has taken over Washington, DC. Harper helped take the Nats to the 2012 playoffs by hitting 22 bombs and driving in 80 runs in less than a full season in his debut campaign in the bigs. Though his margin of victory over fellow rookies Todd Frazier and Wade Miley wasn't the runaway win that AL ROY Mike Trout saw, his title is still valued the same.
For a while now, the question has been pouring in as to who is Bryce Harper's girlfriend. Thanks to the social media campaign pushed by MLB, Harper joined Twitter and answered the question for us all. Bryce Harper's girlfriend Kayla Varner also hails from Bryce's hometown of Las Vegas, NV and is now a sophomore at BYU, where she also plays soccer.
Impressively enough, both Harper and Varner were able to keep the news quiet for quite a while. Considering the amount of attention Bryce Harper gathers throughout DC, and how badly people have wanted to know exactly who he's dating, this feat is especially impressive. The two regularly tweet at, or retweet to one another, so if this relationship has a shorter shelf life, we'll certainly watch it unravel. Good luck to the two kids here,... this has to be one of the most challenging long distance relationships we could imagine.
