Be Careful What You “Catch”

On the eve of the 19th Retroconference, or “CROI” — and I’m headed to Seattle right this moment — two baseball players have intersected with the world of Infectious Diseases.

Ike Davis of the Mets has Coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever).

And Ryan Howard of the Phillies has an infection after achilles tendon surgery.

Bottom line, it’s quite obvious that Bud Selig needs to hire an ID specialist — and I know just the candidate.
