quote: None of them. If any of them were any good, they would have been shipped off to another team.
Originally the owner was just being a bitch to motivate the team. She picked all the random nobodies b/c she didn't have a ton of cash for FAs and instead went with a Moneyball-esque approach. Test audiences didn't like the reveal that she never planned on moving the team so they dropped it before wide release.
It makes sense that she never wanted to move b/c once they started winning all she would have and to do is trade the better players or drop them to the minors for guys who would lose.
