I'm referring to African American players.
We only have one on our 40 man roster?
Just curious...Is there a stat that would tell me what the league average number of african americans are on other teams?
I was just curious, and noting more.
There's no one in the organization that's burnt sienna. You know that was the only one of the 64 crayons you never used.....admit it.
And the cinnamon doughnut.......you know that's always the last one in the box.....nobody wants to touch it.
We still have a long way to go.
I forgot about Vaughn, also I don't think Hawkins is actually part of the roster yet.
Not many to be sure.
I've been alluding to this issue all along. At the moment, Robert Carson, Marlon Byrd and Cory Vaughn (St. Lucie) come to mind. Last year, there was Hairston and Fred Lewis. Of course, there are several dark skinned Latinos.
I don't think the Mets exactly discriminate, but other teams (Phillies, Braves) tend to look for African Americans to sign as either draftees or free agents, so they will get them more often than we do. The Mets will make offers from time to time, but in the end will more often than not come out short.
And the biggest troll on this board also appears to be racist....big surprise what a complete coincidence! "
Dude its one thing to dislike a poser based on his comments. Its another to blatantly make things up after looking for something that's not there. He didnt say anything racist at all.
