Recently the blog 528 had a chart that compared how each Major League team would have done if they only had players they drafted
. The Orioles would be 16 games behind in last place using this model. The fact they are only 4 games behind shows they are better at trading than drafting.
|AL EAST||WINS||LOSSES||WIN %||GAMES BEHIND||ACTUAL GB|
|1||Boston Red Sox||79||54||.594||—||2.0|
|2||New York Yankees||67||65||.508||11.5||6.5|
|3||Tampa Bay Rays||66||66||.500||12.5||19.5|
|4||Toronto Blue Jays||64||69||.481||15||—|
The Washington Nationals would be in last place instead of first.
