“People think that just because you’re married to a baseball
player, that you’re dumb, that you’re a gold digger, that you’re an
ex-stripper. That’s not the way it is. I still haven’t met that one
girl.”

— Laura Posada, law school graduate, author and wife of Jorge and star of tonight’s “E: True Hollywood Story: Baseball Wives”, on breaking the stereotypes.

I agree that’s ridiculous, and that “one girl” doesn’t exist. To the
contrary, there are hundreds of baseball wives. Many of the
ex-strippers are very smart, many of the dumb ones are in it for love,
not money, and many of the gold diggers are very prim and proper. To
paint them with such a broad brush is simply unfair.

The Nationals announced that third baseman Anthony Rendon has been placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, with a toe contusion. Pitcher Austin Adams was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.

Rendon fouled a pitch off of his foot on April 13 in a game against the Rockies. The Nationals were hoping he wouldn’t need to go on the disabled list, which is why he was day-to-day for a week and a half. Unfortunately, Rendon’s stint on the DL can only be backdated to Thursday, so he won’t be eligible to return until this weekend.

Rendon, 27, is hitting .286/.355/.411 with a home run and four RBI in 62 plate appearances so far this season. Wilmer Difo has been handling third base while Rendon has been out and figures to continue doing so for the next week or so.
