Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: On Cinco de Mayo, Strike Three For American Baseball Players?

When it comes to sports, I am one of those completely uninterested folks Guzzardi referred to. Is this baseball or football season? Nevertheless, his column hit a home run with me.

I have never thought about sports and immigration. And Guzzardi's outrage at MLB going overseas for players instead of looking toward our inner cities is well founded.

I have a prediction, or perhaps a column idea,—the Bill Gates Effect. It won't be long before baseball's commissioner, Bud Selig, appears before Congress complaining about the dearth of American players and demanding an increase in B visas so that teams can fill up their rosters with overseas players.
