MLB: Kansas City Royals at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

There is something about that I remember from growing up, that you pretty much knew who would be on the team the following year. I don’t hate free agency at all, but seeing a homegrown player commit to the team that drafted him for many, many years is nice.
