Manny "MAGA" Machado spent some time at Padres Spring Training doing some interviews with a "Let's Go Brandon" t-shirt on. If you're not familiar with the Let's Go Brandon chants then where the hell have you been?
They originated during a post-race interview with NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Brandon Brown. Fans chanted "Fuck Joe Biden" and the interviewer turned it into "Let's Go Brandon."
Fans ran with it. Let's Go Brandon then turned into a popular chant at College Football games and now we have one of the biggest stars in Major League Baseball wearing the t-shirt.

If I know Rob Manfred like I think I do, he's going to be reaching out to the Padres and Machado about his t-shirt selection. You don't have to agree with the shirt to support Machado's right to wear it.
