What would Jackie think?

Interesting article on ESPN about the lack of black players in the MBL today. Personally, I see it as a non-issue. There is no official color barrier, but less black kids are chosing to play baseball. I guess I don't see what all the fuss is about, because it's not the result of any discrimination.

Anyway, what caught my eye in the article is that ESPN supposedly lists all of the MLB's black starters on each team, except that for the Tribe they neglect Josh Barfield and for some reason include Grady Sizemore. I wasn't aware that Grady was of mixed ancestry. Interesting:
