Braves fans should shelve the chop and start the rain dance.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/09/us/atlanta-braves-tomahawk-trnd/index.html

Quote
There were some changes during the Atlanta Braves game Wednesday after the team announced it is taking steps to "reduce" the Tomahawk Chop, an arm movement done by fans to cheer on the team.

It comes after St. Louis Cardinals' rookie Ryan Helsley, who is a member of the Cherokee Nation, called the chop disrespectful.
...
"Out of respect for the concerns expressed by Mr. Helsley, we will take several efforts to reduce the Tomahawk Chop during our in-ballpark presentation today," a spokesperson for the Atlanta Braves told CNN.

"Among other things, these steps include not distributing foam tomahawks to each seat and not playing the accompanying music or using Chop-related graphics when Mr. Helsley is in the game."

Helsley expressed his concerns after Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Friday.

"I think it's a misrepresentation of the Cherokee people or Native Americans in general," Helsley told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "It's not me being offended by the whole mascot thing. It's not. It's about the misconception of us, the Native Americans, and it devalues us and how we're perceived in that way, or used as mascots."

Sox got the good Joe Kelly last year.

Leaving him in for 2 innings may be fireable.

Agreed.  I was shocked.

Who was it - Showaler - that lost a series with his closer docked?
