Haven't we all figured out by now that "non-sports medical reason" is often a code for Covid which they aren't allowed to disclose without the player's permission?
And if it's not Covid, it's mono or something like that. Or, God forbid, it's symptoms that wind up being something really bad, as happened when Trey missed a week+ of spring training because he wasn't feeling well.
Occam's razor, take the simplest explanation:
Explanation 1: Orioles say he isn't attending for a medical reason. They are telling the truth. Then while he isn't attending, he uses that time to finish is degree.
Explanation 2: Orioles lie and say he isn't attending for a medical reason. Then it comes out that he finished his degree. That is actually the reason he didn't attend, and the Orioles are keeping that a secret by lying for some reason.
Hmmm.... one explanation seems clearcut and straightforward and something that might happen in the real world. The other seems to come out of tinfoil hat territory, with inexplicable lying and conpiracty by Them to keep us from knowing at The Truth.
Kids who watched the Simpsons when it was at its peak of popularity have kids of their own now.
When I went to my 25th HS reunion, which was age 43, I was amazed at how the women still mostly looked young and almost exactly the same as they did in high school, with just a few exceptions. The men, myself included, had all put on weight and looked a lot different. I was much more likely to need a name tag to let me know who a guy was than a girl.
Not much change at all by the 30th (48 years old).
At the 35th (53) the women started really showing their age and suddenly I needed name tags for the women too. And for the first time, in both sexes, I saw people who "looked like grandparents" to me. Not the majority, but certainly a decent number. (And of course some of them actually ARE grandparents).
