April 1st, 2021: MLB to build its presence in China despite Sino-US spat

(and no, it wasn't an April Fools joke, it was published at 10:30pm)

That "Sino-US" spat, of course, is the international (yet muted) outrage over how China is treating about a million Uighur Muslims. There are also some other issues, such as China's treatment of Hong Kong (also muted international outrage), their threatening stance towards Taiwan, continued abuse of Falun Gong practitioners in Tibet, theft of intellectual property fueling their technology industry, and...something else...can't quite remember...oh that's right...

Unleashing their deadly China Virus on the rest of the world.

For Major League Baseball, of course, that's all a-okay. Water under the bridge, not a big deal, shouldn't get in the way of doing business whatsoever. What's not okay? Trying to end the Democrat push for expanded voter fraud, of course!

Some of you may have noticed that the MLB coverage on this blog pales in comparison to former years: even in quiet periods like 2017 (2/51 posts) or 2018 (1/30 posts) there still tended to be baseball content (0/30 posts in 2013, in fairness). Even when I write about baseball lately it has had nothing to do with the games or the teams or the players. Much like the woke NHL and the no-longer-Eskimos, count me in with the many fans who have decided that if this is what our sports leagues are going to be, they'll have to do it without my money and attention. I didn't watch any baseball games last season, nor any NHL games after the lockdown and #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFucker riots. This latest decision will cost them even more fans, and somehow I doubt that the sodomites who prefer looking at underage boys having baths are going to make up the merchandise-buying slack.

Bonus coverage: I'm not the only one who noticed the change of pace.
