Boston, Dodgers, Philadelphia, Yankees, Texas have been doing it for years are always producing players in their systems. Then you have teams like the White Sox, Mets, and Houston who obey Selig/slot recommendations and continue to be on the bottom of the farm systems. We need to change are way of spending money. If that means we take $5 million off the roster, I'm all for it because it will save us money in the long run by producing players in your own farm system.
Kansas City, Pittsburgh, and Oakland... There's some winning philosophies we need to emulate.
