Homegrown talent for days.

While the Dodgers didn’t make the splash many MLB pundits anticipated, they have had a good bit of roster change and turn over since the All-Star break. Here’s a look at the current roster, and an example of how deep the team is in terms of home-grown talent.

  1. Haters claim we bought our team they clearly don’t even pay attention to our games because if they did they would realize the guys on our team hardly consist of any big FA signings but almost all of our own stars, homegrown players and under the radar scrap heap pickups that we’ve turned into good players. On another note, almost all of these guys are Colleti’s. Only Smith May and Gonsolin are Friedman’s
