Astros and their MLB Roster

With the trade for Aubrey Huff I was curious and looked at the Astros MLB roster:

Upon Review I noted that

  1. they only have 3 OF's listed but
  2. they only have 5 non-white players
Fernando Nieve
Wandy Rodriguez
Orlando Palmerio
Willy Taveras
Preston Wilson

That has to the lowest number in the majors and for that matter as a percentage of roster the lowest in the the 3 major sports (basketball, baseball, and football).

I just find this curious.  not trying to get any political or other type discussion going.

They can't complain considering they are the current NL Champions and in the thick of things right now.
