|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. I\’ll explain how they got all their players on their 25 man roster, as well as some notable players on the IL. This is how they were built.
