Jordan Zimmermann's wife Mandy Zimmerman is wishing you don't mistake her husband for other people named Jordan Zimmermann. Actually, there's another former pitcher named Jordan Zimmerman (with one "n" and not two) who was drafted in the 32nd round, 886th overall in 1993. He pitched 8 total innings and became a real estate salesman in Arizona. Why is this important? Well, other than the fact that it gives you an idea how hard it is to become a quality pitcher in the big leagues, it's a prelude to telling you about still another Jordan Zimmerman (also with only one "n"). That Jordan Zimmerman is a onetime bodybuilding champion and business tycoon who's worth $4.4 billion. He has a butler named Dudley with a "Z" sewn into his jacket.
If I was Jordan Zimmermann, I would not want to be mistaken for either of those guys. Right now, being the Jordan Zimmermann that pitches for the Washington Nationals is not such a bad deal. He's on a really nice tear, having finished a match recently against the Padres where he pitched a complete game, two hits, no walks, and 12 strikeouts. Very nice stuff, Big J. Jordan throws a variety of pitches. His fastest pitch is his four-seam, clocking in around 95 mph. He's had terrific control lately, and he's now been named an all-star for the second year in a row. Right now he's 6-4 but with a 2.79 ERA. Last year he posted a very impressive 19-9 record.
There's not much to say about Mandy except she's a consistent stay-at-home mom, raising a kid she popped out last year. She used to work at a dialysis clinic, but now her official facebook status is "mommy to Riley." Both jobs sounds very boring and unfulfilling to me. I've never been a fan of dialysis clinics, and I don't trust babies named Riley. Jordan and Mandy are chilling in their DC suburb, and life is good.
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.
