MLB and Hispanics

Caste Football Looks at the 2008 American League, National League
A few pockets of dissent have pointed out that the media suggests that hispanic players are intrinsically "superior" to white American baseball players. Hispanic players are heavily promoted and celebrated by the media, and the result of this is everyone knows the names of these players. The media is deliberately planting a seed in the minds of the casual fan. The casual fan (he may not even be a ticket holder) might then demand that his team be filled with the "real" baseball players. You know, the ones that are hispanic as they will always be promoted and hyped-up by the media just qas blacks are in football and basketball.
A few interesting questions immediately surface around this "dilemma" in Major League Baseball. I'll get into that in a moment.
I saw today's starting line-up for the Cleveland Indians and it was chock full of hispanics. It almost rivaled the Detroit Tigers line-up! It is disheartening to see that the Midwest is getting a bigger and bigger "taste" of hispanic baseball. Wait, what, I'm an "evil racist"? Well, the Cubs and Angels have 4 starting white pitchers apiece. That's "white supremacist" -- isn't it? Really, shouldn't it be 4 hispanic starters and 1 white starter? That would be the "natural order of things" -- right?
The Cubbies and Angels are RACIST!! Wow, that sure was easy to say. It must be nice to have a vocabulary with zero substance and no ability to put multiple words together to argue a position. A free exchange of ideas via debate is a good thing. Only the dishonest man would fear such an exchange. Holding different views is alright, but lets put them all on the table. There should be nothing to fear.
Back to the questions. A lot of teams are filled with hispanics (most of non-USA origin) at this very moment, with a few other teams seemingly eager to jump on the bandwagon and join this "craze." If virtually every team is eventually overflowing (and it may not be a long wait) with hispanics, what is the end result? Wouldn't that make "hispanic victory" INEVITABLE every single MLB season?
Tell you what, the WORST teams would also be hispanic. The joys of "diversity?" MLB teams are allowed to be virtually 100% hispanic when it comes to the position players, but NO team is allowed to be virtually all-white at the position spots. Because, it wouldn't take long before we hear the cries of "racism" (that word pops up again). Very interesting....
Some MLB teams that are filled with hispanics aren't having good seasons at all, but "the fix" is still alive and in play. It's certainly a clever cycle of operation. If one of these teams has a modicum of success next year, the media will be right there ready to worship them. The talking-heads would pat themselves on the back and essentially say, "See, you need those hispanics to win!" In reality, all we would be witnessing is a self-fulfilling prophecy born out of manipulation. Like I said, it's clever. Fiction morphing into "fact."
If those promoting the supposed "superiority" of hispanic baseball were secure in their beliefs, why wouldn't they advocate for whites to be allowed to COMPETE, as, naturally, the stiff and uncoordinated whites will be soundly defeated by the superiority that constitutes the hispanic brand of baseball?
