The past couple of years have been pretty good to C.J. Wilson. Losing back-to-back World Series had to be painful, but inking a five-year deal with the Angels worth $77.5 million had to have helped ease the pain a bit this past offseason. So far, Wilson has earned his paycheck. He has a 9-5 record on the year to go along with an impressive 2.43 ERA that landed him on the AL All-Star roster. As if that wasn’t enough, he was also spotted with a gorgeous model at the All-Star red carpet event on Tuesday. This model, Lisalla Montenegro, is Wilson’s new girlfriend.
“Damn you, Jimmy, for digging this up,” Wilson told Jimmy Traina of Sports Illustrated’s Hot Clicks. “She’s a great influence on me and we have a lot of stuff in common. We keep to ourselves. And the only thing I have to say about this picture is that it was very windy that day and my hair was too dry.”
Considering he was cruising along in the back of a Chevy with Montenegro proud by his side, there’s wasn’t really much to dig up. If that was my girlfriend, I wouldn’t be hiding it either. Heck, C.J. could even stick with his no TV routine and still be perfectly content.
If Wilson is looking to keep this thing private, he has gotten some help this week from Tigers ace Justin Verlander. If Verlander is actually dating who we think he’s dating, that’s the relationship everybody wants to talk about.
