The mainstream sports media is having a collective aneurysm over this tweet from MLB umpire Rob Drake:
Major league umpire Rob Drake tweeted “I will be buying an AR-15 tomorrow, because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL WAR!!! #MAGA2020”, according to a copy of the tweet obtained by ESPN. MLB says it is aware of it. News: https://t.co/Qf7VMAXEoJ

As ESPN is reporting . . .
The tweet, which was deleted soon after it was posted, followed one earlier in the night regarding the House of Representatives’ impeachment proceedings with President Donald Trump.
The other tweet read: “You can’t do an impeachment inquiry from the basement of Capital Hill without even a vote! What is going on in this country?”
Drake deactivated his account Wednesday. He did not return phone and text messages.
Look for Drake to be calling balls and strikes in the Arizona little league next spring.
