Interesting choice. Would have thought they would have picked Milwaukee

Facility questions, the ability to scale up that quickly, and, frankly, the elephant in the room all came into play.

Howard Bryant was the first of many who has pointed out that this was a purely business move for MLB, but that to avoid making multiple stops, finding a spot where sponsors and advertisers would be pleased was paramount. Denver fit that bill.

Moderator warning: This is not a political discussion, regardless of the reasons MLB made their decision. So ... don't go there. Period. You can like or dislike the decision based on your own personal criteria, but we are not having that discussion here, so there is no need to mention how and why you are choosing to support or cancel MLB.
