MLB cuts its own throat

Apparently seeing how the NBA ratings have cratered, Major League Baseball has decided that it needs to follow suit and go after that sweet, succulent Social Justice demographic:

Major League Baseball announced Friday that it is moving the 2021 All-Star Game and 2021 draft out of Atlanta in protest of a new Georgia law that has raised concerns about its potential to disproportionately disenfranchise minority voters.

In a statement, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said the league is "finalizing a new host city and details about these events will be announced shortly."

A source told ESPN that the All-Star Game is still planned for Los Angeles in 2022 and won't be moved up to fill the void this summer.

"Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and The Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views," Manfred said as part of his statement. "I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year's All-Star Game and MLB Draft.

I'd like to say that I'm going to boycott baseball to express my contempt for MLB's convergence, but unfortunately, I haven't seen a baseball game since 1991. 

The Olympics have embraced social justice too, but that's practically redundant.

It's not like MLB owns baseball or anything - sports is a community event that brings people together. There is nothing wrong with returning it to the community roots and cutting away the dead flower that these leagues and associations have become. Make sports great again!

One of the more annoying aspects of this is the average citizen is FORCED via back-room 'deals' with ISP's to pay ESPN and therefore the MLB, NFL, and NBA.

There is no line-item to opt out of, and in most cases there are no alternative service providers for internet, and further there is no indication as to whether they have "signed on" to siphon your money to these ideologues.

It's the sports version of CNN and airports.

I wish I cared enough about these garbage organizations so I could boycott them. But I haven't watched an MLB, NFL, NBA or any other professional/collegiate sporting event in well over 6 years now. Let's just hope that moves like this convince enough of the so called conservatives who still watch to finally make the decision to boycott. Somehow I expect if they're still watching they will continue to watch no matter how much they are hated.

At least they play offence, not eternal defence.

Blogger Daniel April 02, 2021 5:53 PM  

MLB on the other hand is combining social justice convergence with regional blackout strategies that will prevent regional fans in non market areas from seeing any games of, for example, the Cubs, Cardinals, Royals and Twins. It would be as if a Browns fan in Toledo couldn't see the Browns, Bengals, Lions or Colts.

"I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year's All-Star Game and MLB Draft."

Evidently, "demonstrating (y)our values" also includes supporting a terrorist organization (BLM) that burned large chunks of major US cities, including cities hosting some of *your* franchises, to the ground last summer.

I guess this douche kinda forgot that part.

Blogger cyrus83 April 02, 2021 8:22 PM  

If the GA legislature wants to troll MLB and the woke corporations, it should impose a per-ticket tax on large sports venues and a separate larger tax on luxury boxes in those stadia and explicitly dedicate the funds to election integrity. And then helpfully publish the names of all corporations who paid the tax and how much the teams have raised for election integrity. The exploding heads and doublespeak from all involved would be hilarious.

They probably won't do that, but if MLB wants to hit GA in the wallet, GA should hit them right back like this and make it as painful as possible.

I haven't watched a game since 04. Wasn't a fan then so guess it's no loss. Seems like baseball is missing a trick and not gobbling up a lot of disenchanted fans of other sports. But hey, they can be an even smaller fish in a diverse pond where there fans are disinterested and destroy the stadiums after games.

There is no backbone anymore anywhere because conservatives simply won't back beleaguered allies. It'll be this way until we are all gone or it snaps in yet another rightist outburst of ultraviolence. Kings, real kings are the only way to prevent the democratic cycle of shit, degeneracy, violence.

The Olympics was always a globalist run operation and it shows. Rampant cheating early on gave rise to rampant corruption later. Today, countries that host the Olympics are routinely driven into debt to pay for infrastructure that the recipients can't afford to maintain or put to use.

All the major revenue streams are taken by the Olympics committee, while all the costs are paid by the people of the area hosting the event. It's as close to a perfect extraction machine as you can design. Someone has to do the arduous work of choosing the next Olympics venue for the measly sum of billions of dollars per year.

That being said-I've not watched a game since around the time John Kruk made his famous comment in '93.

Grew up watching the Evansville Triplets as my father raised me on stories of Mickey Mantle & Al Kaline. Played T-Ball, Pee-Wee, Little League, Pony, Legion, High School, D1 and then the minors. Idolized Don Mattingly. Remember watching my first World Series in 1985 World Series when the Tigers hammered San Diego with a group of players coming out of Evansville like Gibson, Trammell, Whitaker, Morris, Parrish & Petry. Raised by Steve Stone & Harry Carey. Never missed a World Series. Took BP with Nomar. Played catch with Mattingly & Trammell. Got a singed ball from Puckett. Wrote a baseball blog for a decade. Own every book written by Baseball Prospectus, Rob Neyer & Bill James. Read Ball Four probably 100 times. Can quote Bull Durham, Eight Men Out & Major League completely.

Brett baker wrote:So how long until Georgia is out of the Union?

A lonooonnnng time. Look at the demographics. Out of 9.6 million people, around 35% are vibrant, 8% are Hispanic, and 3% are immigrants. So the balance is precarious. The last 3 governors have gone hell-bent-for-leather to offer tax breaks to corporations located in ultraliberal states to move their headquarters to Georgia, and these companies have taken up the offer and moved their ultraliberal personnel with the headquarters. And Georgia has the same problem as many other states: over half the population, which includes most of the vibrants and leeches, lives in metro Atlanta, and metro Atlanta dominates state level politics.

It would not surprise me to see Georgia looking like New Jersey in the next 10 years.

That said, minor league games are great! They're cheap; there's not a bad seat in the house, thanks to the small stadia they play in; the fan experience is good; and the game is good. For the price of one MLB ticket, you can take the whole family to a game! Minor league games will be a lot closer to where you live, so even if you attend a weeknight game, you'll still be home at a decent hour for work the next day.
