Re: Fat and Tired=Disabled
Troy O' Leary was DL'ed by the Red Sox a few years ago for a divorce.
Without recalling the exact language of the basic agreements or the CBA, it doesn't have to be either an injury or disability.
On the other hand, I recall Pat Meares successfully contesting his being put on the DL. I'm not sure if that's because he wasn't injured AT ALL or because his injury was so minor.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
