Peach Pundit Podcast: MLB Pulls All-Star Game From The ATL. Georgia vs Delaware? Georgia vs Delta? Economic Impact Numbers: Fake or Real?
On this episode of the Peach Pundit Podcast, we talk about Major League Baseball’s decision to take the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta and send it to Denver. We also delve into the late-breaking news that MLB Commissioner Rod Manfred didn’t talk to MLB Owners and players, but did talk to Stacey Abrams before he decided to yank the game.
Other topics include:
- Should Georgia adopt Delaware’s election laws? One Legislator thinks so (not really). We discuss.
- Cobb County officials claim the loss of the All-Star Game will cost them $100M in economic impact. Are those numbers real? We’re not convinced.
- The Georgia Legislature’s effort to reimpose a tax on Delta for jet fuel failed on Sine Die. Is it a good idea to punish companies who criticize legislation?
- Will the loss of the All-Star Game be the catalyst Governor Kemp needs to fend off a Trump-backed challenger and win reelection next year?
