There are plenty of non Latin players involved, obviously, however I think it is fair to say that the rise of the Latin ball player in recent years had a copilot.
Carlos Beltran, Albert Pujols, Miguel Cabrera, Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano, Adrian Beltre, Adrian Gonzalez, Felix Hernandez, Hanley Ramirez, Johan Santana, Jorge Posada, Bob Abreu, Pedro Martinez, Vlad Guerrero, Nomar Garciaparra, Alfonso Soriano, Roberto Alomar, Carlos Delgado, Johnny Cueto, Aroldis Chapman, Javier Vazquez
Far as I'm aware none of them have had a serious allegation of any substance lodged against them.
And before you go trying to pick names off that list remember we could perform that same exercise with any list of players.
Your post is exactly what I suspect WOY was talking about. So a cluster of players in south Florida are under suspicion and now you're jumping to the assertion that Latin players have proliferated the past two decades because of PED. I maintain they percolated to the surface the same way as black players in the 1960s and Irish players in the 1880s.
