International Free Agency

 

Who needs in house developed talent anyways? The 2008 version highlighted the team's dependence on the two forms of free agency to assemble talent. By 2010, after Jack Zduriencik's first full season as GM, most of the Bavasi prospects had been shipped off and the lingering big money free agents expired.

Now we have a bumper crop of minimum signing free agents and under the radar trade acquisitions clogging the decks of the wayward ship Mariner. Naturally, some of the in house talent is what was shipped off in the trades so it's not like this is an accurate portrayal of the organization as a whole, but it is interesting to me how few players on the team right now have been Mariners from the start.
