As a serious baseball fan since the mid 80s, I am very pleased with what I see as the return of the white to prominence in Major League Baseball. For years, black players were drafted and handed major league jobs based on their "athletic tools". After years of failure by these black players, fairness and equality are returning. Scouts are now looking for natural, pure hitters who can "rake" (I love that baseball term, it totally describes white hitters who constantly hit the ball hard) and who take walks. Since 1998, my hometown Baltimore Orioles have posted 10 consecutive losing seasons. That could change this years and if it does, it will be as a result of the play of whites. Look at the offensive leaders: 1) Aubrey Huff14 HRs 2) Brian Roberts Top 2Bs and SB man, an All-Star 3) Luke ScottAt 30, finally gets a chance 12 HRs 4) Nick Markakis Hits for AVG, Power, and has a Hose 5) Kevin MillarStill a HR leader The media won't talk about this team, but they can't ignore this forever. Furthermore, teams all over MLB are being led by young mashers. Just take a look at the All Star game post on this page. Another example, 10 years ago there were virtually no white shortstops. Now, the top young SSs are white, Hardy, Greene, etc. Heck, 2 white shortstops with the same last name (Beckham) were Top 10 picks in the draft a few weeks ago. With a victory today, Baltimore takes 2 of 3 from the sacred Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Birds take care of the media's anointed "best team in baseball" this afternoon.
