I was over at the Mariners' SBN blog Lookout Landing when I stumbled across this interesting flowchart that tracked all of the transactions that had brought their current 25-man roster together. As an exercise I decided to do the same, although I chose to expand it to our 40-man roster.
Players that the Halos drafted are in blue bubbles, while those that we signed as amateur or undrafted players are in purple. Free agents are red and players acquired in trades are in green, with an arrow connecting to the box of the player that was traded to get them.
Probably the most interesting thing to me in comparing this chart with the aforementioned Mariners one is how few of our players were acquired in trades. Also it should be noted that Robb Quinlan is such a badass that he was drafted twice.
Hopefully this amuses at least 10% of the people who view it.
[UPDATE] Fixed HK's draft position and narrowed down the sign date for Loux. Also updated the statuses of Ortega and Thompson to reflect the current roster.
