Mike's AL East Comparision

Over the past three month Mike NYY has worked hard to compare the Yankee, Rays and Red Sox at all of the positions. He finished up yesterday; so I though I would get them all together in one place for easy access:



Good work Mike.

ALCS A Victory For The Civil Rights Movement?

In 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I have a dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. Twenty-five years later, the Tampa Bay Rays appear to be on the verge of defeating the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS. The BoSox are historically a very white team (they were the last team to integrate) and currently have just six minorities on their roster, and just one in their starting lineup. The Rays meanwhile, have eleven minorities, and start six with regularity. Boston has a reputation as a racist city, and it is great to see Dr. King's dream has finally come true. As I look into the stands of Fenway Park and see a panorama of white, waspy faces, a tear rolls down my cheek as I realized the plight of the African-American is closer to being lifted.

(Note: This is satirical, please do not take me seriously. But really, as Ken Rosenthal pointed out today, the Red Sox are a really really Caucasian team.)
