On September 23, the Trump administration slapped a ban on incoming visas from Venezuela. MLB issued a statement saying it believes it will not impact baseball players coming here to play. But nothing is totally certain.... Just an FYI and something to keep the "excitement" going (I'm kidding; there is nothing exciting about this):

Would it be wrong if I pointed out that Trump's success rate as president makes Curtis Granderson's batting average in LA look downright awesome?

I don't think there will be many successful challenges to this ban as it is very narrow. And as long as it stays this narrow, our Venezuelen players should not be affected. But it is out there and it is a potential, albeit a relatively low risk, impediment. BTW: Curtis's BA is much better than Trumps :-)

It won't have any effect on ballplayers. I have a number of academic colleagues who are Venezuelan nationals and this won't affect them for the same reason. It's directed at the regime and it's only going to impact those individuals who have ties to the regime.
