Twins and Rangers Roster from Domestic Draft

Myworld takes a look at the last two teams to see what their roster would look like if they only relied on the domestic draft to build their team. Myworld only went back to 2005. The link these two teams have is they were both at one time located in D.C. We have to give our kudos to Allan Simpson and the Baseball America ultimate draft book for our research. Anything you want to know about any draft is compiled in this book that would put the Baseball Encyclopedia to shame.

The Twins find their roster filled with number ones who never fulfilled their potential, or who the Twins hope become late bloomers like Denard Span. The Rangers had a number of players on their roster from the 2007 - 2009 time period, but their offense is still lacking super stars. Chris Davis and Joey Gallo both exhibit light tower power that comes with lots of strikeouts. Gallo is still waiting to achieve some success in the majors and not turn into the second coming of Brandon Woods.
