Braves’ response to MLB transferring All-Star Recreation from Atlanta will get warmth: ‘Nobody provides a s—’


The Braves are coming underneath fireplace for a poor alternative of phrases.

The Braves, full with questionable tomahawk placement on their assertion, responded to MLB’s resolution to maneuver the 2021 All-Star Recreation and MLB Draft from Atlanta amid Georgia’s controversial new voting rights legislation.

The assertion reads:

The Atlanta Braves are deeply disenchanted by the choice of Main League Baseball to maneuver its’ 2021 All Star Recreation.


This was neither our resolution, nor our advice and we’re saddened that followers will be unable to see this occasion in our metropolis. The Braves group will proceed to emphasize the significance of equal voting alternatives and we had hoped our metropolis may use this occasion as a platform to reinforce the dialogue. Our metropolis has at all times been often known as a uniter in divided occasions and we are going to miss the chance to handle points which are necessary to our group.


Sadly, companies, workers and followers in Georgia are the victims of this resolution.


We are going to proceed to help the group legacy initiatives which have been deliberate and are in course of.

FAGAN: Transferring All-Star Recreation is a shock transfer for MLB

MLB says it mentioned the choice to maneuver the sport from Atlanta with gamers — previous and current — and golf equipment to decide, finally feeling that the brand new voter legislation carried out in Georgia is one thing that the league merely can not help.

Whereas the Braves try to place the blame on MLB, possibly a extra clever discourse than simply, “It is their fault!” and finger pointing needs to be so as when discussing the controversial voter legislation. Twitter, sadly, isn’t an area for nuance.

In any case, others felt the identical, and the Atlanta group’s tone-deaf and feeble response to MLB transferring the All-Star Recreation acquired a variety of warmth from followers, writers and extra on Friday.
