Interesting note in the MLBTR story about MLB game cancellations tonight, which began when Milwaukee, close to Kenosha, voted not to play.  This followed the Bucks making the same decision.  Here is the quote:

As the Brewers were deciding whether to play Wednesday, star reliever Josh Hader said (via Bob Nightengale of USA Today): “It’s a tremendous stand. We have to bring light to this situation that we have, it’s a big thing.”

Wait, whaaaaaa?   Hader, of all people, is their spokesman??  I'm all for 2nd chances, but maybe a black player or someone with no history of public racist comments might have been a better choice. 

I immediately looked down to the comments area, expecting to see an erupting volcano.  But even though the posting was only minutes old, comments were closed.

Probably a smart move, MLBTR.
