I found an interesting little nugget in this article on SI about the Blue Jays:
"Ricciardi counters any lack of depth is due to the fact his major-league team has more homegrown talent -- 12 players on the big-league roster come from drafts that he was in charge of -- than all but two other teams, the Giants and A's."
Now, this number was padded a little in the past two weeks when The Franchise, Lewis, and Ortmeier were added, but I think it's still pretty cool, and doesn't quite jive with what we thought we knew about our aging Giants the past few years. It's great watching these kids play, and I can't wait for more to make the leap.
(Interesting to note the A's are also under .500, though like the Blue Jays I'd attribute that mostly to their horrific run of injuries so far. The Giants, sadly, can't share the same excuse...)
