He calls them a bunch of imposters and says they're the reason more black american players aren't in baseball, because the MLB owners don't want to play black americans 5 million dollars when they can pay a black latino a bag of chips. I never thought of him like this. This is a racist statement IMO, it's not their fault more black african americans aren't playing baseball. A lot of black americans play football and basketball instead, these guys are in the MLB cuz they can flat out play not because they're trying to be imposters or because the owners are scared to pay black americans. That's bulls**t.

Seriously - who cares about skin colour except morons when hiring ball players?
If the Giants could win with polka dot midgets - I would be all for it.

It just never ceases to amaze me how stupid people can be. Did he actually believe that these comments wouldnt get him bad publicity and make him look like an idiot? Maybe he is a Niner Talk poster and we dont know it.
I just don't understand what's the point of making those comments? Maybe Dominicans are just more interested in baseball & have the talent to do so. GM's don't give s**t about race, all they want to do is win.

we do have more interest in baseball. and since most are poor, its pretty much the only fun thing to do and to many the only way to get paid so they work hard at it every day. while here in the usa you got many other sports and other things that take your mind out of sports.
