CC strays from the Subway diet

February 27, 2011

With a full schedule of games this weekend (and the At Bat 11 app out for my iPhone), one of my favorite times of year in Florida has finally arrived — Spring Training.

As IoT’s Florida correspondent, I’ll be reporting on a couple of games next month. In the meantime, I thought I’d celebrate the start of Spring Training with my favorite tidbit of the offseason, which should have been the lede in this Feb. 14 ESPNNewYork.com story about the Yankees’ CC Sabathia:

Sabathia, who had knee surgery this offseason, said he is 25 pounds lighter after he stopped eating full boxes of Cap’n Crunch. The 6-foot-7 Sabathia had reported to past camps well over 300 pounds.

Somehow, I don’t think Jared would have approved that as part of CC’s Subway diet.
