Marlins Fined by Commissioner Selig

I read this and had to wonder to myself: did the Chicago Cubs have to interview some white or hispanic guys before hiring Dusty Baker? Isn't somebody's qualifications enough to hire them? So Major League Baseball wants teams to go through a song and dance, being dishonest with hopeful candidates, just to fill some stupid cosmetic requirement, even if they have already decided on their man? There are more and more awesome minority managers in the Majors every year. Any team would kill to have Dusty Baker as manager, and I think it's rather insulting to require teams to make a "show" for the sake of interview diversity.

This just smacks of something the ACLU has brought on...
