Major League Baseball Ditches ´Disabled
List´ Over Social Justice Concerns

Daily Wire, by Emily Zanotti

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/10/2019 11:23:58 PM

Major League Baseball will replace the "disabled list" with the "injured list" for the 2019 season amid concerns that the term "disabled" was insensitive. (Photo) The "disabled list" has been part of professional baseball since the mid-1960s (though there are records of some teams using a "disabled list" as far back as the early 20th century), and it´s become second nature to refer to an injured or exhausted player as "on the DL," but MLB has been reportedly playing around with the idea of renaming the injured roster in order to better reflect the condition of players who skip games

In another move, MLB has announced that shortstops will now be referred to as vertically challenged stops.

I thought the N ot F lipping L ikely was the only ones with the "delicate" attitude. Now baseball is getting in the act?
I haven´t watched a game since the umpire strike that canceled the world series.
Just another reason to NOT watch

That´s so nutty. I doubt there are 2 people on the planet who connect the term Disabled List to people who suffer with disabilities. What next? Stolen base is now ´appropriated base´ so no one thinks the player is a thief?

What about players who might be stigmatized for having to play Left field or either Right field.

No more getting to 1st base. It’s getting to beginning base. No more home run. It’s an abode run. And definitely no more double play. It’s now a 2 out play.

#2 missed a couple other position name changes. The left fielder will now be the progressive fielder (and will no longer even have to play in order to get paid). Also, the right fielder will now be the extreme right fielder (and will be taxed double in order to pay the progressive fielder).

Like IBBs have been abbreviated by just sending the runner to 1B without throwing a pitch, eventually Home Runs will skip the batter running the bases, as it would be rubbing it in. They will just add the run to the score and send the batter back to the dugout.

Donald Trump said on Friday that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had sent him a copy of a five-page letter delivered to the Nobel Peace Prize committee, nominating the U.S. president for his efforts to defuse tensions with North Korea. ´He said, "I have nominated you," or "respectfully, on behalf of Japan, I am asking them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize."

Four police officers and multiple civilians have been injured in a shooting at a manufacturing warehouse in Illinois. The gunman, who has not yet been named, was apprehended around an hour after opening fire at the Henry Pratt warehouse in Aurora. Preliminary reports are that multiple people were shot including four police officers before the shooter, who went on the run afterwards, was brought down. It remains unclear if he is alive or injured. According to witnesses, he is an employee who walked down an aisle of the warehouse, shooting ´everybody´ with a pistol which has a laser scope attached

Washington -Special counsel Robert Mueller´s team has interviewed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, she told CNN on Friday. "The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel. I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them," Sanders said in response to a question from CNN. The interview is one of the final known interviews by Mueller´s team. It came around the same time as the special counsel interviewed former White House chief of staff John Kelly, well after a number of other senior officials, including former White House communications director

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Blumenauer, who has endorsed the progressive Green New Deal resolution and is active on environmental and renewable energy issues, circulated a letter to colleagues Friday seeking support for a resolution that would declare the “sense of Congress” that climate change is a national emergency. Blumenauer’s resolution would swipe President Trump for declaring a national emergency “What our country should be doing right now is focusing on addressing a real national emergency and one of the most pressing issues of our

Democrats are starting to figure out that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving . . . to Republicans. A few days ago, Nancy Pelosi disdainfully dismissed Ocasio-Cortez´s Green New Deal as "the green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?” On today´s Morning Joe, there was consensus condemnation of Ocasio-Cortez´s opposition to NYC´s deal with Amazon to establish an HQ in NYC, which contributed to Amazon´s decision to cancel its plans.

An ISIS-supporting group posted an image online depicting an explosion at the top of the third-tallest office tower in downtown Los Angeles. Though ISIS backers operating under a number of media alliances regularly craft and circulate threats and recruitment propaganda in the form of posters and video, Los Angeles is rarely featured as a target. The online jihadists trend toward threatening New York, Washington, Las Vegas, and large European cities. The new image shows a camouflage-clad jihadist holding an ISIS flag with the evening L.A. skyline in the background and the glow of flames photoshopped coming from the hillside beneath

The Democrat who leads the House Armed Services Committee denounced President Trump’s plan to use billions of dollars from the Pentagon’s military construction budget to fund his border wall, calling it an “appalling decision” and “an egregious example of the President putting his political agenda ahead of the interest of the United States.” Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., also took exception to President Trump’s assertion that “some of the generals think that this [the wall] is more important,” and when they described the projects that would lose funding, “it didn´t sound too important to me.” “It is utterly disrespectful of U.S.

After CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked President Donald Trump if he was manufacturing a crisis at the border Friday, the president fired back, telling him to ask the family members of those killed by illegal immigrants whether or not the crisis at the border is real. Sitting a few rows in front of the podium in the Rose Garden were a group of “angel moms,” mothers of those who lost their lives to illegal immigrant violence. Acosta had asked Trump if he was “creating a national emergency” in order to get his border wall, which Trump quickly responded to by

Being left with few options by a dysfunctional Congress incapable of acting outside party interests, President Donald Trump is reportedly set to declare a national emergency on the porous southern border to secure funding to build a wall. And while the president can honestly say he did everything possible to work with the corrupt DC political class to deliver a solution to a crisis Democrats and their media allies refuse to acknowledge, the one lawmaker who has become the face of the effort to obstruct Trump’s plans to enhance border security is threatening Republicans who support the decision.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.
