The CC Sabathia weight loss plan: easier than you’d think

15 Comments

Last week there was some stuff about CC Sabathia’s weight. It was reported that he lost 30 pounds. Brian Cashman wasn’t having it.  Today, however, he reported to Yankees camp in Tampa, and multiple reporters have tweeted this morning that Sabathia looks slimmer.  He told some of them that he’s probably lost 25 pounds.  Mark Feinsand of the Daily News quotes Sabathia explaining how he did it:

“I stopped eating Cap’n Crunch every day. … I used to eat that stuff by the box.”

Word on the street is that the roof of Sabathia’s mouth is in the best shape of its life.

Seriously: how can anyone eat Capn’ Crunch?  You may as well just chomp on razor blades.  Now, Peanut Butter Crunch: that’s another story …

UPDATE:  Glad to see I’m not alone with this.

The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.

Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
