Because staph infections are so Cleveland Browns

CC Sabathia Cliff Lee was scratched from his scheduled throwing session today due to a lingering abdominal strain. He will start the season on the disabled list and is expected to miss at least few starts while he recovers. He won’t throw any pitches for 7 to 10 days, and it is possible that he’ll be out of action for six weeks.
This marks about the fourteenth straight season a starting pitcher has pulled an abdominal muscle during spring training, forcing him to miss the beginning of the season. Usually it is Sabathia suffering on the DL and usually the blame is targeted at his weight. But now you kind of have to wonder just what it is that goes on in Winter Haven among the starting pitchers. Perhaps they are spending their free time throwing overweight discusses across the manicured grass of the outfield.
