The Yankees are sanitizing their new home with some sort of specialized disinfectant coating in order to prevent staph infections. Infectious disease expert Paul Sax, M.D. wonders if they’d be better off simply scrubbing the place down with some Comet. Then again, these are the Yankees, so if they’re going to solve a problem, you can bet your life that they’ll do so in the most unnecessarily expensive way possible. While they’re burning money, they might as well give all of their players a curative galvanic belt too.
By the way, Dr. Sax is not just a Harvard Medical School professor and the Clinical Director of the HIV Program and Division of Infectious Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He’s also a ShysterBall reader going back to the old Bull Magazine days. But before you say anything, if you think that I’m offering up this little tidbit simply to make me seem smart and special by showing off how brainy and accomplished my readership is, well, you’re 100% correct about that.
