I have been in a awful mood lately and one of the many reasons is this chronic unease over the baseball season. Mike Trout who is being pitched around is off to a mundane start for him. Cody Bellinger looked to be on his way to a historic season but separated his shoulder recently and has suddenly lost all of his pop and crackle. He has not hit a HR since the injury and doesn't look like the same player all of a sudden. But it hit me like a ton of bricks last night. In the David Price thread Booth casually commented on a minor league game he attended and how many non white foreign players filled up the rosters. In that thread there is some discussion on it and I mentioned how the lower level minor leagues, usually the source for stars down the road, is filled to the top with extremely young foreign mostly non white players. But as I finished up with the Bucks- Celtics game I wandered around the MLB network and I noticed the league has transformed itself into a Dominican Republic like league. I knew that the surge of mixed black and mixed Hispanic ( along with some white Hispanics) was taking place but I guess I have been avoiding the true reality. The fact is team after team is overloaded with south of the border talent. It is worse than I thought. Much worse. And many of the Dominican players are mixed or fully black. Yes there are still some white players, notably pitchers, but by God this league has changed dramatically. All this talk about baseball being a white man's sport is a load of junk. No wonder I have lost some of the pure excitement I used to feel for baseball. Like the Premier League in England, MLB has steadily and quickly changed the face of their players. Is white death right around the corner?
