Maybe its just me, but I'd reword that post heading - I thought I had suddenly lost Wright because of some injury when I saw that
The heading is fine. Anyone reading a baseball forum, seeing the term "Abreuitis", and thinks its a real medical disease deserves to get a fright put into them
In fact, I think we need more baseball "illnesses" named after players. Just a few possibilities:
"Teixitis" -- When you're a 1st round hitting stud who destroys his fantasy teams by hitting the whole 1st half like a WW-level guy. Even worse, you constant tease your teams by hinting that the turnaround could be around the corner.
"Drew's Syndrome" (also known as "pansyitis") -- When healthy you hit, but a million little things always make you lose PT. Even when healthy, you get frequent days off just so you keep "fresh".
"Colonitis" -- Well, I guess it could also an infected colon. But I'm thinking of something worse -- when Cy Young winners eat a donut store and hurt themselves.
"Gomesitis"/"Sheltonitis" -- This is a bad one, that can cause fantasy managers to get a serious illness of their own if they were foolish enough to "buy high" after the first month.
"Hamels Madness" -- Unlike the others, this is a disease that afflicts fantasy managers. This disease comes in stages. Stage 1: Symptoms are an unhealthy obsession with a guy who had yet to pitch in the majors, to the point of endlessly posting about it and being willing to use any waiver number or drop/trade anyone to get this guy. Stage 2: Depression when said-player fails to live up to the hype (often culminating in a drop). Stage 3: Remorse when the player starts having some good games. Stage 4: Cruelly, this disease is cyclical. Just as the manager comes to grips with their feelings about the player, a new player catchers their attention (ala Garza).
