IDIOT OF THE YEAR 2021: Party rolls on with Gerrit Cole, John Stockton, and Mark Davis

It takes a special kind of idiot to move to a new city with a high-profile husband, and then use one’s social media to take shots at said city, all while expecting the new city to embrace one’s family. That’s pretty much the tack Kaycee Sogard, wife of then-Chicago Cub Eric Sogard, decided to do while Derek Chauvin was on trial for the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Here’s a tweet she proudly liked, right out in the open for the whole world to see:

Apparently shocked that Chicagoans recognized her endorsement of the tweet for the racist dog whistle it was, she then became immediately indignant and blamed everyone else for “misunderstanding her,” when the problem was actually that people understood all too well.

Predictably, Kaycee is also a blatant anti-vaxxer, which actually saw her fitting in beautifully with Chicago’s North Side team, one of the least-vaccinated teams in baseball. And all the while Kaycee was letting us in on her extremely bad and uninformed views, her husband was hitting a measly .249 with an on-base percentage of .283. Not that there’s ever a time that racism and misinformation is acceptable, but she definitely doesn’t know how to read a room.

Both Kaycee and her husband were designated for assignment at the end of July, and good riddance from a city that deserves so much better than racist, anti-vaxxer wives chirping from the family section.
