It's dangerous to attempt to piece together a 25-man roster even at this late stage of the winter, but I'm going to give it a try.
The catcher will be a Metropolitan-American.
Around the infield we'll see four Metropolitan-Americans.
Each of the three outfield spots will be occupied by a Metropolitan-American.
The bench? All Metropolitan-Americans.
Five Metropolitan-Americans will fill out the rotation. The bullpen, from the long man to the closer, will have nothing but Metropolitan-Americans.
You can really root for a team that's made up of Metropolitan-Americans. Taken as a unit, it should be a pretty good group we can all get behind.
And the man who put it together? I think we'll eventually look at him as a credit to his race.
The pennant race.
