It does seem kinda silly, but you think about it from a business standpoint, it makes sense. A latino player in a sport that doesn't have many, in an area with a lot of latinos, is likely to create more fan interest. Its not so much that he will be drafted because he is hispanic, but it will be a factor for some teams. Kinda like when teams favor a hometown player because of the fans. You know like the Texans should have done with Vince Young. I know many black people who became interested in golf when Tiger Woods hit the scene. It could be a similar thing with Gonzalez.
