Charles Garparino reports that Major League Baseball executives were blindsided by commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision to cave to the woke mob and move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. He claims they also fear major fan backlash because of the loss of 100 million tourist dollars that will harm black residents and businesses after they moved the game to the much-whiter city of Denver. They’re reportedly trying to come up with some solution to help mitigate the damage they’re caused (they could just admit they were misled by the President’s lies about the law being a return to Jim Crow instead of very standard election laws similar to those in many other states and keep the game in Atlanta, but that would require guts.)
Another interesting twist: Gasparino claims Manfred’s decision to move the game came after he spoke to Democrat anti-vote law crusader Stacey Abrams. Abrams’ people claim she was trying to talk him out of moving it, but she did previously partner with an anti-election law group that supported moving the game. Abrams wants to run for Governor again, and she doesn’t need voters blaming her for the game being moved. Although how they can’t blame her for all the other economic boycotts after she’s led the charge to misrepresent the new laws as virulently racist is beyond me.
If Ms. Abrams has flipped-flopped on her stance, it wouldn’t be surprising. After all, she has built a power base for herself by proclaiming that vote fraud is nonexistent, while continuing to insist that she was really the winner of the last Georgia gubernatorial election but got cheated. I guess it’s only insurrection to question an election if you’re a Republican.

Manfred's decision was ill informed and has affected thousands of Georgia business. Calls to Coca-cola, Bank of America, Arm & Hammer, & Sirius XM to name of few commercial advertisers to let them know what we think should have been done.

I am a 67 year old , long time Cardinal fan. Commisioner evidently decided it was okay to cut basebslls own throat. The best thing he could do is reverse this ignorant decision.Lf not , replace him with someone with commom sense before it,s too late.
