For the first time since the steroid era ended, the MLB playoffs will have the Yankees, a first-time Nats, Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, the World Series runner-up Rangers, Bryce Harper and a new wildcard playoff game. Can't get excited about that? What's wrong with you? It'll also be the first playoffs for MLB girlfriends Kate Upton and Angela Rypien. Still not excited for October baseball? Shame on you. JUMP!
We'd never heard of Amanda McCarthy, wife of Oakland A's pitcher Brandon, until a chance meeting on Twitter yesterday. It seems that she's an active WAG. Not only does she do road trips to wherever the A's are playing, she also documents these adventures via Twitter and a brand new blog. Did we mention she was a fashion model? The real reason we're here today is to appreciate the fantastic tweet Amanda sent out for Brandon's birthday (today). JUMP!
