MLB Loves The Patriots
If you follow the MLB affiliated twitter accounts, you will notice they love the New England Patriots. Every time they have an opportunity to tweet about the Patriots, not matter how much of a stretch it is, they find a way:

We all know the 🐐 is Tom Brady but that is real nice of you.

Maybe MLB loves the Patriots so much because Robert Kraft joined Jeff Wilpon in purchasing a team in the Overwatch League. It wouldn’t be the first time MLB went against their own best interests to support the Wilpons.
Whatever the case, it’s interesting to see MLB doing a good job promoting the Patriots and the NFL while Rob Manfred cannot figure out a way to promote Mike Trout.
By the way, since Major League Baseball is unaware, Trout is the best professional athlete in the world right now.
To be fair, they probably overlooked this fact because they were watching so many Patriots and Overwatch League games.
