MLB Roster Grid | RosterResource.com

I haven’t verified every roster but it looks like every team’s Opening Day roster on one page.

WHAT EVERY TEAM WOULD LOOK LIKE IF TRADES WERE NEVER ALLOWED

One morning, Commissioner Manfred wakes up and decides that everyone has to go home.

He makes a few calls. He assembles a phalanx of lawyers. He deposes the owners who oppose his idea, and he tinkles on the Collective Bargaining Agreement. In the end, he wins. His idea rearranges every roster in baseball.

This is his idea: Every player in baseball has to return to their first team. David Ortiz has to go back to the Mariners, who signed him in 1992. He’ll be joined by Alex Rodriguez. They’ll have to split the DH. Maybe Rodriguez will play center field, I don’t know.

Jake Arrieta on the Orioles. Carlos Santana on the Dodgers. Anthony Rizzo on the Red Sox. It’s as if every trade and free agent signing was rolled back. It’s as if were no trades. It’s as if the only free agents that were allowed were amateur free agents, and the second they took a minor-league at-bat, they were tethered to their team for life.

Here are what those teams would look like. If your team is improved, you might want join Commissioner Manfred’s cause:
