The article focuses on developments related to baseball in the U.S. It's incomprehensible that the team Boston Red Sox did not require physicals for pitchers Josh Beckett and Guillermo Mota before acquiring them. A supposedly cutting-edge organization should seek as much information as possible and not simply rely on medical records. The New York Mets general manager Omar Minaya should be criticized for making questionable deals, not for obtaining too many Hispanic players. The Cincinnati Reds should pattern themselves after the Cleveland Indians, who made several painful trades in order to rebuild more effectively.
