Should MLB move the World Series out of Georgia?

MLB pulled the All-Star from the state following the passage of voting laws earlier this year. Those laws are still in effect, so should MLB tell the Braves there will be no games played in Atlanta?

Did they already miss the opportunity to make that statement by allowing playoff games to be played there?

The All-Star Game is a meaningless exhibition game with no home-field advantage to either team. The World Series is not an exhibition, it is the culmination of the season. Moving the games would put one team at a distinct disadvantage but it would also send a loud and clear message.

Georgia officials are already crowing about the Braves' revenge for the All-Star snub, moving the games would be a way to slap back even harder. Personally, I think MLB missed the chance for that message by allowing playoff games in the state. Still, it could make a rather dull match-up far more interesting.

Please no. The law is already being challenged in the courts.
I hate the law, but I don’t think this is the way to go about it.
Even Stacy Abrams came out against moving the All Star game.
I would also suspect there might be some legal reason they couldn’t do that, since the other team would be allowed to play at home.

Edit: this should probably be on the other side.

Then they should move out of NY State. A state named after the man who ran the Royal African Company. One of the largest, if not the largest, slave trader in history.

I hate all of that kind of thing. It only further divides people. Win elections if you want change.

I thought moving the All-Star Game made the point.

Yes. Now is not the time for round 2. The downside would be far far greater than any upside.

Well, they had that assbite, Travis Tritt, singing the National Anthem - Mr. Anti-Vaxxxxxer himself. Do the Braves (not the most respectful way to respect our indigenous people) with their "Tomahawk chop" (SMFH), actually support the singer's feelings about our pandemic and social responsibility? MLB oughta make 'em play in L.A. (LMAO)

I think they should hold it in Montreal...so it can be definitively shown they are not 'The Boys of Summer' when they are STILL playing in November.

They should hold it in Atlanta. Everybody that loves the team isn't a racist.

In one year we'll be working hard to re-elect Raphael Warnock. He only got elected because more white people voted for him than did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Dickin around with baseball bs is too risky. There's also an opportunity to flip some key legislative seats in the state house.

False equivalency.

...

Yes, boycotts at that level often work.

Boycott Texas and Georgia. Pull sports and movie/TV production out of there.

Texas has been doing an excellent job of that itself

I don't think it's good to politicize everything. Can people just go to a ballgame and enjoy it? They should be able to, imo. I think it drives people nuts.
