It’s Out of the Question: Why don’t we all have a 10 hour DL, Dodgers style?

In the beginning, God put in a six-day work week, followed by a day of rest. Was there a disabled list at the time? Heavens no. He called it Sunday.
Man’s own brilliance and ingenuity has created so many things since then that have been essential to his own well being. But more so than traffic lights, emergency phones in public elevators or even the printing press (which is still up to debate), the simple wisdom of the disabled list is transcendent.
Sports seems to be the only entity that officially recognizes such a thing, In the secular world, the HR department may frame it as extended leave, a sabbatical, or a furlough. Shave all the fur off it, and it’s just a permission slip to skip out on P.E. that generally doesn’t require a doctor’s note. Your word and ethical standing is all we need.
