The Twins being the exception but what has that gotten for them?
The Rays too small a sample size.
With the exception of the Yankees (and maybe even including the Yankees) those teams spend a LOT on the draft too. The Rays have made it three of the last four years and have done it almost exclusively through the draft. The Rangers have a lot of homegrown talent, the Cardinals as well. Even the Red Sox have a lot of homegrown guys. The only team that seems to build exclusively through free agency is the Yankees.
