Astros- all white now?

Postby DMXdawg » Tue Jun 22, 2004 7:55 pm

With Lane starting, I'm pretty sure every starting regular is white, and everyone in teh rotation is white. They have a high ranking high in teh fron office, but this is kinda strange

:-o

Coincidence?

Yeah
So, their lineup is
Biggio
Everett
Berkman
Kent
Bagwell
Lane?
Endsberg
Ausmus

P-

Clemens, Pettite, Redding, Miller, Oswalt.

Can you be any more diverse?

lol.. but Dotel isn't.. he might be the guy who decides whether the Astros make the playoffs or not in that close division.

btw- i still think that the WHITE Sox are the most racist team in baseball. :-D

What's the difference? They obviously just want to put the best team they can on the field. Who cares what skin color they are?

It's just an interesting observation. I'm not calling the owner/manager racist, but I'm just saying that the Astros have an all white starting lineup. Now, if Brad Lidge closes...

They are trying to field the best team they possibly can. Why does it matter what color they are? Should they field a lesser team just so a certain background is represented?
