sorry about the terrible title, but I noticed some cool things about our current 25 man roster...
6 players (Garza, Howell, Percival, Shields, Gomes, Bartlett), and our manager (Maddon) are from CA
2 players from TX (Crawford, Kazmir), both natives of Houston
only 1 player from FL (Riggans)
2 players from IL (Floyd, Zobrist)
5 players born outside the country, surprisingly only 3 latin players (Pena, Reyes- DR, Navarro- Venezuela). The other 2 being Jackson- Germany and Aki- Japan
1 Ray player (Sonny) and 1 soon to be ex-Ray (Glover) from OH
7 remaning players from different states in the US.
I find it interesting that the majority of our team -born outside Cali- are from different places scattered around the country, and planet. Also, it is very odd that only 3 of our players are hispanic, and our team is comprised mostly of whites and blacks. Even our biggest losses from last year, Harris, Norton, Wilson, Camp, Dukes and Young, are either black or white. Our team is kind of unique in this day and age
