Portly New York Yankees pitching ace C.C. Sabathia has dropped 25 pounds this offseason. How did he do it? Simple. He quit eating Cap’n Crunch cereal for breakfast.
Sabathia says he used to eat Cap’n Crunch for breakfast every day and ate an entire box per sitting. Sabathia admits he weighed well over 300 pounds the past several seasons. However, if Sabathia piches better this season because of the lost weight it may actually hurt the Yankees. Sabathia has the ability to exercise an out in his contract and file for free agency this offseason. He has not guaranteed the Yankees that he won’t exercise that opt out option. At least one recent article expressed the Yankees dread that Sabathia could sign with the Yanks arch-rival Boston Red Sox.
