MLB’s World Series Heartburn

Georgia and Texas, two red states protecting election integrity, will host the Fall Classic.

Let’s Go Braves! Heading into Major League Baseball’s World Series tomorrow, that might be an alternative for the now-popular “Let’s Go Brandon!” chant making its way around the nation. Why? Because of MLB’s political stunt in pulling the All-Star Game from Atlanta earlier this year in protest of Georgia’s election law. Now Atlanta will share the stage for the Fall Classic.

The Braves eliminated the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday night in Game 6, sending Atlanta’s team to the World Series for the first time since 1999. They’ll face the Houston Astros, who dispatched the Boston Red Sox also in six games.

Aside from two red state teams defeating two blue state rivals, the significance only grows after MLB’s political stance. Georgia and Texas are both controlled by Republican legislatures and governors, and both responded to the myriad problems with the 2020 election by passing new legislation aimed at shoring up election integrity. Joe Biden led his fellow Democrats in ridiculously decrying this as “racist” and “Jim Crow 2.0.” Texas Democrats even fled the state to avoid a vote.

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred bought the Left’s lies and, in a grossly politicized decision, moved the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver. There was no shortage of irony there, either, with the decision costing numerous black-owned Atlanta businesses millions of dollars, and overall harming a city that has a far larger minority population than Denver. Colorado’s election laws are also less lax than Georgia’s, even after the new legislation. Oh, and don’t forget MLB’s big new broadcasting deal with the voters’ paradise known as the People’s Republic of China.

But whatever. Manfred had a “woke” mob to appease.

Now, he’ll have to get over the fact that many conservatives are having a good laugh at his expense. The commissioner typically attends World Series games, and we just don’t know how Manfred will be able to look at himself in the mirror after spending time in two such reprobate states.

Within moments of the Braves’ victory, Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp declared: “While Stacey Abrams and the MLB stole the All-Star Game from hardworking Georgians, the Braves earned their trip to the World Series this season and are bringing it home to Georgia. Chop On, and Go Braves!”

Oh dear. He just referenced the Braves’ famous Tomahawk Chop, which surely can’t be acceptable at a time when the Cleveland Indians are dumping their minority mascot in favor of the more bland but colorless Guardians. Ditch the Indians, keep the land. We see how you are, Cleveland.

In any case, poor Rob Manfred will be stuck flying back and forth between Texas and Georgia. Someone better pass him some Rolaids. Let’s Go Braves!
