How they were built: Baltimore Orioles

Jonathan Villar and Cedric Mullins

              On Twitter, I saw a post on how a hockey team acquired all their players. While I forget who to credit for the tweet, I thought it would be a great thing to do for every MLB team to start the season. Starting in the AL East, with 2018\’s worst team, the Orioles.
