    Well, it may be super early, but I figure that the 2020 season officially ended when the cheating managers were eligible for rehire.

    A.J. Hinch to be the skipper in Detroit.
    Alex Cora back in Boston. SHOCKING, I tell you.

    MLB are complete pussies for ever letting them in a ballpark again. Fuck them and anybody who hires them.

    I like how Major League Baseball's statement about not punishing Justin Turner included their own failing in not detaining him. lol, like some rent-a-cop was going to keep him off the field. Were they going to handcuff him? Manfred is sad

    Get ready, Atlanta. In a few years you’ll be the only team to complain about.

    I think it's pretty damned racist to be getting rid of the diversity in sports teams names while white named teams like the Padres, Vikings, 49ers, etc...continue on.

    The Braves name itself is not offensive, and they've dropped use of the screaming Indian logo. They've taken down the giant Tomahawk and if needed, can drop the Tomahawk logo. However, they have also been partnering with the Eastern Band of Cherokee to bring awareness to their language and promote merchandise whose sales benefit their charities. They're trying to make it positive and inclusive.

    Now, the Chop is a different story. It's not going away. But, I guess the stadium can stop playing the drum beat, and PA can stop encouraging it? It seems to me, that if they eliminate it and get rid of all things Indian, it will just fade away, which . . . is that what Indian culture wants? Why don't the Braves and Cherokee partner and educate and explain the narrative? Instead of it being a buncha whiteys who stole the chop, explain how that was used in ritual. Or, how a war cry would inspire the tribe to battle. I just think there's a way to make it positive.

    Sounds like a Braves fan trying to delay the inevitable.

    Soon we’ll all be rooting for “the (City) Baseball Team” no matter who we are.



    I’m just joking around with you, of course. I think.

    Who knows. I think it was when the Braves were in their second consecutive World Series in 92, Ted Turner still owned them. He was married to Jane Fonda at the time, and she was vocal about not doing the Chop and there were some protests about the name. That was 28 years ago. So, it's been delayed for that long.

    Let’s vote in the name as the Cleveland Steamers. Put a boat on the jersey so they can’t bitch.

    Fuck ‘em.

    “Braves” is probably the least insulting AND coolest of all the native names. That and the Blackhawks, who may have the best jersey and emblem in sports.

    The tomahawk chop should have gone a long time ago, though. It’s using a genocide as a cheer.

    So she ignores sixty messages and his thought is “She just cold WANTS to see my cock.”

    ....I will never get why dudes do this shit. No woman in history has wanted to look at a photo of a penis, just ask Brett Favre.

    In true opening day fashion, it’s cold and blustery in the Bronx. Weird seeing a partially filled stadium.
