Starting the year on the DL...

Is it just my imagination or does there seem to be an increase in the amount of players starting the year on the DL?  Without looking everyone up I recall Lofton, Benitez, Todd Jones, Prior, Badelli, and Wells (not to mention the obvious Wood and Bagwell) starting the year on the DL.  What do these guys do during the off-season?  

Can you imagine the outrage had any of these been the result of playing in the WBC?

Seems to me that even with all of the advancement in medicine, training, etc. these guys are not preparing the way they should to start a season.
