Anyone against this should also be against the "only officially licensed soft drink" and everything else the MLB licenses!

Yes, exactly. Don't want or need the unlicensed stuff. So, it's a monopoly.

Any licensing body has the right to protect their interests the best way they see fit. There's only one officially licensed soft drink and anyone can choose not to buy it, this really isn't any different.
