NBC Sports guy recreates the Cards roster by only using players that we were the first to sign. We've got the 17th best team in baseball, mostly because we've got no starting pitchers. Our lineup, bullpen, and defense are fine, but when both Thompson and Boggs are in your rotation you've got trouble.
He's doing this for all the teams. It's an interesting exercise. The Cubs have developed a TON of good pitching, but very few position players of note. The Reds are listed last.
