So was the Anson Carter trade a way to reach out to the urban community?

I still won't forget the 2003 draft day party... dozens and dozens of uninformed fans were hoping the Kings were going to give up one of their first round picks to get Anson Carter when they called a timeout at the draft.

As for Gomez and attracting hispanics. If he isn't wearing a Dodgers uniform, then don't expect attendance among minorities to rise at Staples Center. The price of admission, parking and concessions at Staples isn't as appealing as the Dodger Stadium pricing.
