    Ian Desmond is a clown.

    He's choosing not to play this year. He says we have a minority issue from the top down. 70% of baseball is a minority.


    “Think about it,” he wrote. “Right now in baseball we’ve got a labor war. We’ve got rampant individualism on the field. In clubhouses we’ve got racist, sexist, homophobic jokes or flat-out problems. We’ve got cheating. We’ve got a minority issue from the top down. One African American GM. Two African American managers. less than eight percent Black players. No Black majority team owners.

    “Perhaps most disheartening of all is a puzzling lack of focus on understanding how to change those numbers. A lack of focus on making baseball accessible and possible for all kids, not just those who are privileged enough to afford it.

    “If baseball is America’s pastime, maybe it’s never been a more fitting one than now.”
