OT - Is Boston too white?

This article, courtesy of Ken Rosenthal. Interesting read, although by my brief count it appears that nearly 1/2 the roster is non-white, so I'm not sure it's totally accurate. He names Kevin Youkilis as white, which he is, but he's also a rarer breed than African-American ballplayers, a Jewish ballplayer. I believe there are only a handful of Jewish ballplayers in MLB.

Reading the article, it struck me, while there certainly is a lack of African-American players on the team, many ethnic groups are represented.

Anyway, I just thought it was an interesting read and thought I'd post it to see if anybody had any reactions to it one way or the other.
