Why not take our roster and remove all of the free agents and supplement the remaining positions with farm talent and do the same with the Yankees or Boston. You would probably find neither of those teams could find 25 players to fill the roster.


Do the same with the A's, no trades get to play and that includes guys that were traded as minor leaguers only real home grown talent and see what kind of powerhouse they end up with.

This would be an average offense with some holes but we already have those now. But we would only have two guys in the starting lineup that we haven't seen before and would probably play close to league average.

I guess there could be a good argument for Erstad at 1b over Joyner. Joyner was huge for a couple of years but for totality of career i would give edge to Erstad. Edmonds was a great player but we are certainly not putting him ahead of Trout. And as good as he was i wouldn't put him over Salmon and Garret. We certainly had some great home grown outfielders during that time.

Somehow, in the homegrown, not having Erstad or Abbott seems wrong. Rosters need to be expanded.

Good topic. I would consider listing Orlando Cabrera possibly ahead of Burleson for the FA/trade lineup.

Burleson hurt his shoulder shortly after the Angels traded for him and was not a very productive player after that....
