    Or is it just simply that the Hispanic candidates are not as qualified as their White and Black counterparts?

    Al Campanis would say that they lack the mental capacity to be a Manager in the Bigs. But, that's not meant to be an insult...

    There have been asians here playing in MLB since the 70's. They have been a ton in the last two decades. How many mangers though? Not sure why the media outlets or radio hosts ignore this while screaming about another race that has had way more jobs. :dontknow:

    I guess it goes back to the old Oscars "controversy".
