I just performed a rather rudimentary study. According to Baseball Reference's wins above replacement, since 2001, 53% of the Twins' total WAR has come from homegrown players. 47% of their total WAR has come from players acquired outside of the organization. During that timespan, Minnesota have averaged a 162-game record of 87-75 in which homegrown players comprise a greater amount of their total team WAR. Their average, 162-game record over a season in which players acquired outside the organization comprise the greater total team WAR is 92-70. A couple notes: - BBRef WAR isn't perfect, I'll admit...in fact, it's far from it. However, it is at least consistent. - Only in 3 seasons was the team WAR particularly close between homegrown & outside acquisitions. Interpret the second note above as a grain of salt. So... Total MIN WAR from homegrown players since 2001: 53% Total MIN WAR from outside acquisitions since 2001: 47% What conclusions can and should we draw from this matter?
