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.

If you want to talk about Rizzo’s scouting ability, then how much are you talking about the Dominican players- how much of a role did he actually have in scouting and signing those guys?
