Championship Teams' Roster Makeup


I read everyone's comments about what Jim Hendry should do to build the best Cubs team. I have been thinking about what the best mix of player's wins championships. I looked at the past 3 World Series winners to see how they got their players whether they were free agents, trades, from the draft, etc. I also included the 2011 Cubs roster to compare. The Cubs have a similar formula from the past 3 champs.

2008 Phillies World Series Roster:
8 free agents
8 draft
6 trade
1 amateur free agent
1 waivers
1 rule 5 draft

2009 Yankees World Series Roster:
10 free agents
8 draft
1 Purchased
3 amateur free agent
3 trade

2010 Giants  World Series Roster:
10 free agents
9 draft
4 Trade
1 amateur free agent
1 waivers

2011 Cubs Opening Day Roster:
8  free agents
6  trade
8  draft
3  amateur free agent
