Is this a problem? Apparently, the Astros are the first team in the World Series without a black player. Not ever, mind you. But in like fifty years.
Me, personally, blinders on and all, I thought Willy Taveras was black, but turns out he's Dominican. In any case, is this really an issue? I mean, I could see if they never had a black player on their roster at all this season, but they had two. And I could see if they didn't have any black players in the minors, but I'll go out on a limb and say that's not the case either. Put the race card away, people!
Oh, and if you do decide to play the race card, don't play it with:
Let's put it this way: the 'Stros have no Bros.
"An article about black people in baseball? Can we use the word nigga yet? No? OK then, put in bros but make sure to do a rhyme, like that rap stuff."
Do not play with the race card people! The race card is not a toy!

There! Don't hide from your mistakes AP and NBC! Learn from them!
