What is the point? Why does it matter if most of the players are white or black or latin american or asian? It makes no difference. Good baseball players are good baseball players no matter what color their skin.

Biggio's a brotha at heart.

That's an interesting observation. A couple of years ago, I noticed them being predominantly white, but hadn't paid enough attention this year.

I wonder if there have ever been any teams with no white players?

(by the way: I don't think that anyone is calling anyone a racist. It's just a weird statistical anomaly and it's interesting. Lighten up.)

It think these observations are borderline inflammatory and need to be relegated to the General Talk section alongside politics. People who make these "observations" normally have an agenda. I want to talk/argue baseball not racial inequality.

Jeez, we're not here to talk about racial inequality.
It's just an observation. I have no problems w/ the race of any of the players.

:-o

Coincidence?

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?


Doesn't your argument fly against "affirmative action"?

Probably I'm not well-schooled in political correctness. ;-)

I aplogize if I've overreacted. :-/
