You already know that Catie Francoeur is a Hot Baseball Wife. You already know that Jeff thinks his wife will make a great mom, and that she’s got a great butt. Now the Atlanta Journal Constitution brings us not one but two intimate glimpses into the lives of the Francoeurs.

First, we got the scoop on the Francoeurs’ honeymoon — they went to Cabo and ran into Chicago Cubs 1B Derrek Lee, his wife, Christina, and their daughter, Jada (what are the odds!?).

Then the Francoeurs, who watch movies together almost every night, agreed to share a list of movies they’ve seen this summer, along with snarky comments about each.

I think I speak for baseball fans everywhere when I say, is it time for spring training yet?

    I taught Catie when she was a student at UGA and she\’s a terrific young woman–smart, conscientious, generous, and highly respected by her classmates. It\’s not her fault she has ended up a celebrity by marriage (she was a middle school teacher-in-training when I taught her–hardly the ambition of an internet hottie). My suggestion: Leer at someone else and let this very decent woman have whatever privacy is available to a pro baseball player\’s wife.

    Whoah, dawgmeister! Who’s leering? You’ve clearly misinterpreted the point of this post, which was to point out the ridiculous way the AJC covered the Francoeurs last winter. I suggest you read this post, where we delve into the AJC’s Frenchies coverage in more depth.
