OBVIOUS VANDALISM[edit]

Someone completely rewrote the names on this roster. Look how stupid they were. 24.233.183.37 (talk) 15:15, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Ramirez's Country[edit]

I've never seen a roster listing that refers to citizenship over place of birth. Roster listings always list a player's country of birth since a player's citizenship is generally not public information. The only reason we know about Manny's is because he changed it in a very public way; a lower profile player could change theirs without the public ever knowing, rendering lists such as this inaccurate. - Pal 15:59, August 26, 2005 (UTC)

You're right. What about Cuban defectors playing in MLB?, such as José Contreras, Liván Hernández and Orlando Hernández, not to mention Cuban-Americans such as Tony Pérez, José Canseco and Rafael Palmeiro, between others. MusiCitizen 18:03, August 26, 2005 (UTC)


Flags[edit]

What happened to the flags? It used to be nice to use this section as a resource to quickly scan and see nationalities... what happened to the flags? What was the thinking behind removing them? If Baseball is expanding internationally with the new Baseball World Cup -- then all the more reason to keep the flags here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.79.62.16 (talk) 02:12, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

I tried to put them back on but someone kept removing them. I have asked them for a reason and have ceased attempting to add the flags while I try to figure out the reasoning against the flag posting. (Baseballclarity (talk) 02:47, 1 April 2010 (UTC))
