17% of the MLB is black.In the starting offense for the Oakland A's you see Emil Brown, Rajai Davis, and Frank Thomas. Not to mention Kurt Suzuki who makes up 1/10 of the asian players in the MLB.About 30% of Oakland's offense is black. Period.7% of college players in America are black. Because the A's are know for aggressively pursuing these young college players... chances are, the greater majority are not going to be black as well.For the record, Beane looks at numbers only.
