Some Things You Can Do... Others You Can't...

The Winter Meetings are in full swing (get it...???) and those assembled are doing something that makes too much sense and took too long to have happen in the first place...

The HQ will let Richard Justice tell you a little bit of what went down:

 Here's what's not OK: Outfits that cross a line regarding sexual identity, sexual orientation or race.

In other words, decency must prevail.

Here's why it had to be done and why players and owners are to be applauded.

First time I saw the Orioles put their rookies in waitress uniforms 20 years or so ago, I'm pretty sure there were zero photographs of the whole thing.

What changed? Social media. One player snaps a photo of three rookies dressed as Wonder Woman, and it might be seen by hundreds of thousands within minutes.

Stuff like this won't fly anymore...

But stuff like this is still okay...

So, MLB it's now up to you about reinforcement...
