I wish I were kidding.
***In honor of baseball's opening day yesterday, here are some statistics* to frighten Lou Dobbs.
* In 1965, 90 percent of major league players were born in the United States. Cuba, with 26 players, topped the 11 other places represented.
* In 2006, 72 percent of major league players were born in the United States. The Dominican Republic, with 146 players, topped the 20 other places represented.
I wonder if Lou thinks it'd be a good idea to erect a giant fence around Major League Baseball? Wouldn't Lou say that the likes of Rod Carew (Panama) and Albert the Great (Dominican Republic) stole/steal jobs from American boys?
