Fasolamatt offers this link from Boston.com, which has been taking a look at what if every MLB team had a roster full of only players it developed initially. They're on the AL Central, and here is what they have for the Twins:

Lineup: LF Denard Span, 3B Danny Valencia, C Joe Mauer, 1B Justin Morneau, CF Torii Hunter, DH Jason Kubel, RF Michael Cuddyer, 2B Tsuyoshi Nishioka, SS Matt Tolbert

Rotation: RHP Matt Garza, RHP Scott Baker, RHP Kevin Slowey, LHP Brian Duensing, RHP Nick Blackburn
Bullpen: RHP Grant Balfour, LHP J.C. Romero, RHP Jesse Crain, RHP LaTroy Hawkins, RHP Pat Neshek, LHP Jose Mijares, RHP Evan Meek, RHP Peter Moylan
Prospects, suspects, expatriates: RHP Alex Burnett, RHP Rob Delaney, LHP Glen Perkins, RHP Jeff Manship, RHP Anthony Slama, RHP Anthony Swarzak, RHP Loek Van Mil, RHP Mike Lincoln, RHP Frank Mata, C A.J. Pierzynski, C Chad Moeller, C Wilson Ramos, C Jose Morales, OF-1B Chris Parmalee, SS Trevor Plouffe, INF Steve Tolleson, INF Luke Hughes, OF Joe Benson, OF Ben Revere, OF Rene Tosoni, OF Greg Halman
Closing comments: Looks essentially like you'd expect a Twins team to look, doesn't it? . . . A deep bullpen, the Morneau-Mauer combo, a Torii Hunter flashback (still seems weird that he's an Angel: I'll be saying that about Vernon Wells for a few years, too), and a bunch of capable, seemingly interchangeable starting pitchers, with Garza playing the role of ace instead of original Giants property Francisco Liriano . . . Didn't realize Meek, who had a terrific year for the Pirates last season, was released by the Twins during the 2005 season.

Kind of makes you realize how much of the roster is already homegrown, eh? Nishioka seems to be a bit of a grey area to us, but we'll allow it.

Your thoughts, please, in the comments.
