well, if you say the system rather than drafting, then you have to throw in the good Dominican program.  Even the Riveros and Lopezes were key trade chits.  If you don't take credit for Turner's development (which I think accelerated here), then 4 position playing starters are internal.  Just 1 rotation piece and 2 or 3 relievers (Grace, Suero, maybe Glover). Eaton and Turner and Gomes were all acquired for internally developed pieces we moved.

definitely just mean drafting, sorry. our international scouting is excellent. drafting is bad. player development is hit or miss. i don't know the last draftee that we had that overperformed their draft selection.
