Allright, we talked about doing this and now let's see if we can get it off the ground. If you'd like to participate, go ahead and say so here and you're in. Once we get enough people involved, we'll establish an order and start drafting. This draft will be at least 25 rounds and possibly more if people would like to go even further with it, that'll be up to everyone who's involved.

So jump on in at any time. :)

Outstanding. An entry from north of the border and a real shocker, Slap getting invloved in a baseball fantasy draft. Did not see that coming. ;D

That's five teams so far. Plenty of room available for those who'd like to join in.

By the way, I'm open to suggestions on how we should establish the order for the draft. I can put everyone's name in a hat and draw them (I promise not to David Stern this lottery :))or we can go by the order in which people signed up (with me taking the last pick of the 1st round, it's going to be a snake draft, so that wouldn't bother me at all) or whatever everyone thinks is fair.

If you've got an idea for establishing the order, feel free to suggest it.

Well, we've got six teams so far. I'd like to get to ten if possible, but if we can't get any more, we'll just roll with who we've got.

No biggie, it just makes the talent pool that much deeper for the rest of us. :)

So what're we aiming for here, 3 starting pitchers, 2 releif, a full squad, and a few backups?

DH Rule? What's going on?

Clockwork Orange
07-24-2006, 02:48 AM
I figure we'll go with a normal major league roster, which is 25 players. Everyone can fill in their rosters as they see fit. If you want a five man rotation, cool. If you'd rather go with a 4 man rotation, feel free. Have fun with it.

I've never been a fan of the DH, but if others would prefer to have it, I'm flexible.

Hey, we should make a definitive decision on the DH thing. If not, we may choose pitches who have hitting ability. If so, we might take a guy who wan't a great fielder.

Go ahead and make the call Clockwork. I'm cool either way.

I'm in! Clockwork, are you the captain of this ship?

Glad to have you on board JCM, and yes, Im running this one. Hopefully I can do half as well as you and Old Dude did with the all-time NFL draft. :)

As for the DH, I'm allright with it unless anyone else has any strong objection to it. I figure that it gives people a little more freedom with their lineup. So unless anyone is dead set against it, we'll go ahead and use the DH in our lineups.

I'll give a little more time and then I'll be doing the lottery to determine the order and we'll put whoever has the first pick on the clock.

Clockwork Orange
07-24-2006, 03:51 PM
Allright, here's the rundown. I'll try to be brief.

The draft will be 25 rounds. That's 25 players on a team, just like in MLB. Once we get to 25, we can talk about going further, drafting guys to go to our respective AAA clubs and whatnot if people are still interested.

Everyone will have 12 hours to make their pick. If your time expires and you haven't made your selection, the next person in line is put on the clock, though you will still be able to make your selection at any time.

This is a snake draft, meaning (for those who might not be familiar with it) that the person who has the last pick of the 1st round gets the first pick of the 2nd round and so forth. That's always seemed like the fairest way to do these things, so that's what we're going with.

I'll be holding a lottery shortly consisting of me placing everyone's name in a hat and drawing them out to determine the draft order. Once that's done, whoever receives the first pick will officially have the clock started on them to make their selection.

That's about it, let's have some fun with this, folks. :)

Wow...so much pressure...I know I'm gonna screw this draft up somehow; but here goes.

With the 2nd overall selection in the all time MLB draft, Killericon selects Right Fielder Hank Aaron.

http://www.major.jp/column/img/2003/07/04/2003070402_2.jpg

The all time home run king's not a bad 2nd overall pick, is he?


Exhibiting an understated style that became his trademark, Hank Aaron became the all-time home run champion via one of the most consistent offensive careers in baseball history. In addition to his 755 home runs, he also holds the major league record for total bases, extra-base hits and RBI. Aaron was named the 1957 National League MVP, won three Gold Gloves for his play in right field and was named to a record 24 All-Star squads.

LF Ted Williams Red Sox

Theodore Samuel Williams
(The Kid, The Thumper, The Splendid Splinter, or Teddy Ballgame)

http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/mlb/photo/gallery/williams/ph_williams_index.jpg

Bats Left, Throws Right
Height 6' 3", Weight 205 lb.

Debut April 20, 1939
Final Game September 28, 1960
Born August 30, 1918 in San Diego, CA
Died July 5, 2002 in Inverness, FL

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1966


Ted Williams was the last man to hit .400, when he batted .406 in 1941.


He won the Triple Crown in 1947.


He wasn't named AL MVP in either season. Spiteful Boston writers left him off their ballots entirely, delivering the MVP award to Joe DiMaggio both years.


In 1946 and 1949, sportswriters were unable to deny him the MVP.


521 home runs as a lefthanded hitter in Fenway, despite a career that was twice interrupted by military service.


17 time All-Star.


.344 lifetime batting average seventh all-time.


All-time leader with a .482 career on-base percentage.


Won six batting titles, including at age 23 and 40.


Led the AL in HRs and RBI four times each.


Led the AL in runs scored six times and walks eight times.


Led the league in slugging percentage nine times and on-base percentage 12 times.


In his final season, 1960, he hit a dramatic home run in Fenway Park in his final at-bat. It was his 29th of the season, a record for players at least 40 years old.


In his Hall of Fame acceptance speech he lobbied for the inclusion of Negro League players in Cooperstown.


He was later inducted into the Sportsman’s Fishing Hall of Fame – known as one of the best fly fisherman in American history.


"A man has to have goals - for a day, for a lifetime
- and that was mine, to have people say,
'There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived.'" -

Ted Williams -

http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/thumb/5/50/250px-TyCobbTigers.jpg

"The Georgia Peach" is widely regarded as one of the greatest hitters the game has ever seen......as well as being one of the worst human beings who've ever put on a uniform. While I'm not fond of his vile personality, it's hard to overlook his lifetime .366 batting average, 4189 career hits and 892 stolen bases. He batted over .400 three times in his career and won the triple crown in 1909.

With the first pick of the second round I'll take Mickey Mantle, CF, New York Yankees. I hope to get the pre-injury Mick as I feel that version is better than any CF ever.

Stan the Man Musial Number 6

LF/1B St. Louis

One of the most recognizable batting stances in the history of baseball.

http://img77.imageshack.us/img77/4789/stanthemanmu9.jpg

- Great hitter who was overshadowed by Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio during his time

- Originally worked primarily as a pitcher in the Cardinals farm system, going 18-4 for Daytona Beach of the Florida State League. However, he injured his shoulder that season making a shoestring catch and the pitcher plan was ditched next spring training after he served up two long home runs to Hall of Famer Johnny Mize and Terry Moore. He was nearly released from the organization but batted .379 with 26 HR for Springfield in 87 games. During his intial cup-of-coffee, Musial batted .426 in 47 at-bats with the Cardinals and the rest was history.

-He got his nickname during a 1946 series in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn fans chanted "Here comes the man...here comes the man" whenever Musial walked towards the plate. St. Louis baseball writer Bob Broeg wrote a story about it in the newspaper and the "Stan the Man" nickname stuck.

Killericon selects Lefty Grove, P, Athletics, Red Sox.

http://www.leftygrove.com/images/grvl003.jpg

Robert Moses "Lefty" Grove (March 6 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_6), 1900 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1900) - May 22 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_22), 1975 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1975)) was one of the greatest pitchers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitcher) in Major League Baseball (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_League_Baseball) history.
Born in Lonaconing, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lonaconing%2C_Maryland), Grove was a sandlot star in the Baltimore (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltimore%2C_Maryland) area during the 1910s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1910s). His performance caught the eye of Jack Dunn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Dunn), the owner of the minor league (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_league_baseball) Baltimore Orioles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltimore_Orioles_%28minor_league%29), who also discovered Babe Ruth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babe_Ruth).
Grove joined the Orioles in 1920 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1920) and embarked on an epic minor league career which saw him regarded by some as one of the best pitchers in baseball, even before he ever threw a pitch in the majors. Breaking into the team's pitching rotation at midseason, Grove posted a 12-2 record. Over the next four seasons, he posted marks of 25-10, 18-8, 27-10 and 27-6, leading the International League (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_League) in strikeouts every season.
Grove remained in the minor leagues through 1924 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1924) because Dunn, who ran an independent operation with no major-league affiliation, refused several offers from the majors to acquire him. Finally, early in 1925 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1925), Dunn agreed to sell Grove's rights to the Philadelphia Athletics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland_Athletics) for $106,000, the highest amount ever paid for a player at the time.
He battled injuries as a rookie and posted only a 10-13 record, despite leading the league in strikeouts. Grove then settled down in 1926 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1926) and won the first of a record nine earned run average (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earned_run_average) (ERA) titles with a mark of 2.51. In 1927 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1927), Grove won 20 games for the first time and a year later, he led the league in wins with 24.
The Athletics won the pennant in three successive seasons (1929 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1929) to 1931 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1931)), as well as two straight World Championships 1929 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1929) and 1930 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1930). During the Athletics championship run, Grove led the way as the league's top pitcher, posting records of 20-6, 28-5 and 31-4 in those years, the last of which being his best. Grove led the league in wins, ERA (2.06), strikeouts (175), winning percentage, complete games and shutouts. He was also chosen as league MVP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MLB_Most_Valuable_Player_Award) in 1931 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1931), making him one of only a handful of pitchers to achieve this honor. His MVP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MLB_Most_Valuable_Player_Award) Award is the only one not housed in Cooperstown, instead being housed at the Georges Creek Library in Lonaconing.
The Athletics continued to contend for the next two seasons, but finished second to the New York Yankees (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Yankees) in 1932 and third behind the Washington Senators (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Washington_Senators) and Yankees (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yankees) in 1933. Following the 1933 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1933) season, team owner Connie Mack (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connie_Mack_%28baseball%29) sold Grove to the Boston Red Sox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Red_Sox).
At the time, the Red Sox were a bad team, and Grove didn't help much his first year, when an arm injury held him to an 8-8 record. However in 1935 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1935), Grove returned to form with a 20-12 record and a league-leading 2.70 ERA. Grove won his eighth ERA title a year later, and also led the league in that category and winning percentage in 1938 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938). Grove did not win as many games in Boston as he did in Philadelphia, as managers protected his arm as he aged. Nevertheless, Grove continued to post outstanding records, including 14-4 in 1938 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938) and 15-4 in 1939 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1939).
Grove retired in 1941 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1941) with a career record of 300-141. His .680 lifetime winning percentage is still eighth all-time; however, none of the seven men ahead of him won more than 236 games. His lifetime ERA of 3.06, when adjusted for the parks in which Grove played during his career, is second only to the still-active Pedro Martínez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedro_Mart%C3%ADnez)), at 48 percent above average.
Grove was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_Hall_of_Fame) in 1947 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_Hall_of_Fame_balloting%2C_1947). He died in Norwalk, Ohio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwalk%2C_Ohio) and was interred in the Frostburg Memorial Cemetery in Frostburg, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frostburg%2C_Maryland).
In 1999 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999), Grove ranked number 23 on The Sporting News (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sporting_News)' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players of all time. He was the highest-ranked left-handed pitcher. That same year, Grove was elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_League_Baseball_All-Century_Team).

JCM just PM'd me and asked for an extension until Thursday at 6:00 PM, MST. Due to the circumstances, I had no problem granting it to him and I hope that no one has a problem with that.

To anyone who does have a problem with it,

A. You're a prick.
B. He has the next two selections anyway, so he actually has 24 hours allotted to get his picks in rather than just 12. So he didn't need to ask for anything, but he was kind enough to let it be known that he's not trying to hold up the show.
C. See A.

JCM had a good idea that I'm going to go ahead and implement. We're going to add a round to the draft (26 instead of 25) and everyone must take a manager at some point. Doesn't matter if he's your 26th pick, everybody gets a manager. Just a little curveball for everyone. :)

Dimaggio!!

Well, this leaves me with one choice.

Best 2nd baseman of all time, and the ultimate clean up hitter; Killericon is proud to select Edward Trowbridge Collins.

Edward Trowbridge Collins Sr. (May 2, 1887 - March 25, 1951), nicknamed "Cocky", was a Major League Baseball player from 1906 to 1930. Under the win shares statistical rating system created by baseball historian and analyst Bill James, Collins was the best second baseman of all time. He is also ninth on the all-time hit list.

A native of Millerton, New York, Collins was known for his steady bat and speed. He broke into the Majors in 1906 with the Philadelphia Athletics and work his way to full time play by 1909. That season, he had a .347 batting average and 67 steals. The following year, Collins stole a career-high 81 bases and won his first of four World Series championships.

Collins moved to the Chicago White Sox in 1915, where he continued to post top-ten batting and stolen base numbers. He played on the notorious "Black Sox" team that threw the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds, but was not in on the fix and played honestly. He was the playing manager of the White Sox from August 1924 through the 1926 season, posting a record of 174-160 (.521). He then returned to the Athletics in 1927 and retired after the 1930 season. In 1931-32, he served as a Philadelphia coach and, from 1933 through 1947, as the general manager for the Boston Red Sox. With the BoSox Collins helped rebuild the team, and was instrumental in the signings of Bobby Doerr and Ted Williams.

Collins finished his career with 3,315 hits, 744 steals, 1,300 RBI and a .333 batting average. He won the MVP Award in 1914. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1939.

In 1999, he ranked number 24 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players, and was a nominee for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

Looks like I'm nabbing your guys all over the place Killer. LOL Sorry, but you can't blame me for this one. Clemens was my pick, but my Dad was incredulous that the Yankee Clipper was not yet taken.

By the by, I didn't intend to build a Yankee dominated club here, but that's the way it's turning out!

If I were to do the last 48 hours over again...I would've taken him over Grove...but I forgot about him untill you were on the clock.

Nice pick with Clemens, as well.

Christopher Mathewson (Big Six or Matty)

http://www.sportingnews.com/archives/conlon/mathewson/images/mathewson1.jpg

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 2", Weight 195 lb.

Born August 12, 1880 in Factoryville, PA
Died October 7, 1925 in Saranac Lake, NY

Debut July 17, 1900
Final Game September 4, 1916

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1936.


One of five all-time greats originally inducted into the Hall of Fame.


He retired with 373 wins (fourth all-time).


79 shutouts (third all-time).


2.13 ERA (fifth all-time).


Won 20 or more games 13 out of 14 seasons.


Won 30 or more games four times, including a career high 37 in 1908.


Won the ERA title and the strikeout crown five times each.


Led the NL in wins and shutouts four times each.


Mastered the screwball, which he called the Fadeaway, and used it as his out pitch against righthanded batters.


Pinpoint control was the key to his success, as he averaged only 1.6 walks per 9 IP throughout his career.


In the 1905 World Series, Matty turned in one of baseball's best postseason performances, shutting out the Athletics in Games One, Three, and Five, allowing only 14 total hits, as the Giants took the Series 4-1.

"You can learn little from victory.
You can learn everything from defeat."

I have already filled my starting outfield with this move:)

Frank Robinson RF

Cincinnati-Baltimore-Los Angeles Dodgers-California-Cleveland

http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/4623/frankrobinsonie7.png

- Only player to win the MVP player award in both leagues

- He stood so close to the inside when batting that his head and upper body leaned over the plate and brushback pitches didn't rattle him one bit

- His 38 home runs in 1956 were the most ever by a NL rookie

- Cincinnati GM Willliam DeWitt foolishly traded Robinson to Baltimore in 1965 for pitchers Milt Pappas and Jack Baldschun and outfielder Joe Simpson. DeWitt described Robinson being "an old 30". DeWitt would eventually get canned and Robinson would help lead the Orioles to two World Series Championships and four pennants.

Tom "Terrific" is one of the greatest pitchers in MLB history and maybe the best of the modern day hurlers.

With my fourth selection I'll take Rickey Henderson, LF, Oakland A's/New York Yankees/Toronto Blue Jays/I don't feel like typing the rest of his teams :thanku: .

Rickey will obviously be batting leadoff for me. He's the greatest basestealer of all-time and has arguably the best ever combination of power and speed (Bonds cheated, Henderson didn't).

They don't make leadoff hitters like Henderson anymore. He took a ton of walks, stole a ton of bases, had a ton of extra-base hits and thus scored the most runs ever.

Rickey also wore the coolest batting gloves ever -- those neon green Mizuno gloves he used during his second stint in Oakland.

3B Mike Schmidt Phillies

Michael Jack Schmidt

http://www.baseball-almanac.com/boxscore/mikeschmidtlewis.jpg

Born September 27, 1949 in Dayton, OH

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 2", Weight 203 lb.

Debut September 12, 1972
Final Game May 28, 1989

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1995.


By the midway point of his career, Schmidt was already widely regarded as the best all around third baseman ever.


Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1995 on the first ballot. He was named on 444 of 460 ballots, a 96.5% election percentage that is sixth all time.


12 time All-Star.


11 Gold Gloves.


Three time Most Valuable Player.


Led the NL in home runs eight times.


Led the NL in RBI four times.


Led the NL in slugging percentage and OPS five times.


Led the NL in total bases and OBP three times.


Had 30 or more HRs 13 times in a 14 year span.


Despite an often contentious relationship with the notoriously combative Phillie fans, Schmidt is arguably the most beloved athlete to ever play in Philadelphia. Schmidt wept openly when he announced his retirement after 18 years as a Phillie.


Loyal to a fault, Schmidt remains a staunch supporter of former teammate Pete Rose's Hall of Fame candidacy.


Won both the regular season and World Series MVP awards in 1980 as the Phillies won their only World Championship.


"Any time you think you have the game conquered,
the game will turn around and punch you right in the nose".

Killericon
07-29-2006, 01:33 PM
I would draft Jackie Robinson, but I already have a 2nd baseman.

Killericon selects C Mike Piazza.

http://www.gothamist.com/images/2004_05_spiazzagamewinner.jpg

Piazza was the last player the Dodgers drafted of the 1988 draft. He was their selection in the 62nd round, and the 1390th pick overall. It is believed that the pick was partly a favor on the part of Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, who is godfather to one of Piazza's brothers and, like Piazza, grew up in Norristown. Piazza swore he'd learn to catch if he was drafted. Piazza's major league debut came with the Dodgers in 1992, when he appeared in 21 games. He then won the National League Rookie of the Year Award in 1993.
Piazza's best season was 1997 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1997_in_baseball), a year when he finished second in MVP voting. He hit .362, with 40 home runs and 124 runs batted in, an on base percentage of .431 and a slugging percentage of .638.
He played for the Dodgers until he was traded to the Florida Marlins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida_Marlins) on May 14 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_14), 1998 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1998). Piazza and Todd Zeile (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todd_Zeile) went to the Marlins in return for Gary Sheffield (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Sheffield), Charles Johnson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Johnson_%28baseball%29), Bobby Bonilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Bonilla), Manuel Barrios (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Manuel_Barrios&action=edit), and Jim Eisenreich (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Eisenreich). The trade, precipitated by a contract dispute, is regarded by many as one of the worst moves in Dodgers history. One week later, on May 22 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_22), Piazza was traded from the Marlins to the New York Mets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Mets) for Preston Wilson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Preston_Wilson), Ed Yarnall (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ed_Yarnall&action=edit), and Geoff Goetz (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Geoff_Goetz&action=edit).
Piazza helped the Mets to two consecutive playoff appearances in 1999 and 2000, the second resulting in a National League Pennant and World Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_World_Series) appearance although the team would lose to a Yankee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Yankee) team winning their fourth World Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Series) in five years.
One of the most emotional moments of Piazza's career came when he belted a dramatic two-run home run in the eighth inning against Steve Karsay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Karsay) on September 21 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_21), 2001 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001_in_baseball) in New York City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City) to lift the Mets to a 3-2 triumph over the Braves in the first regular season professional sporting event in New York City (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City) since the September 11 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_11%2C_2001) tragedy.
To ease the stress on his deteriorating knees, Piazza began to split his time between catching and playing first base during the 2004 season, an experiment which was abandoned before the end of the season because of Piazza's defensive deficiencies. Although recognized as a great hitter, Piazza is generally not well-regarded for his defensive play, despite having caught two no hitters thrown by Ramón Martínez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ram%C3%B3n_Mart%C3%ADnez_%28baseball_pitcher%29) and Hideo Nomo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hideo_Nomo). Nomo's was particularly impressive because it happened at Coors Field (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coors_Field). Piazza has had trouble throwing out runners stealing second base, though not because of a lack of arm strength. Piazza's height makes rising from a crouch difficult and negates the benefits of his strong arm.
In his 14-year career (through 2005), Piazza's career batting average is .311 with 397 home runs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_runs), 1,223 RBI (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Run_batted_in), and 308 doubles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_%28baseball%29) in 1,702 games.
On October 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_2), 2005, Piazza filed for free agency (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_agency), effectively ending his career with the Mets. He signed with the San Diego Padres (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Diego_Padres) on (January 29 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_29)), 2006 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006) and is their starting catcher and clean-up hitter. Through July 27,2006, Piazza is batting .304 with 16 homers, a surprising output for the slugger, since the numbers of most catchers drop significantly after they reach age 35. Piazza, whom scouts doubted could be a productive player in the big leagues, hence his draft position, is proving critics wrong yet again, this time over a decade later.
He represented Italy in the 2006 World Baseball Classic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Baseball_Classic).

He leads Catchers all time for home runs.

Al Kaline, RF, Detroit Tigers

and

Roberto Clemente, RF, Pittsburgh Pirates

I'll switch Kaline over to Left Field and have the Babe hit in the DH slot.

JCMElway
07-29-2006, 03:11 PM
Al Kaline:

Bio

ost-Season: 1968 World Series, 1972 ALCS
Awards: All-Star (15): 1955-1967, 1971, 1974; Gold Gloves (10): 1957-1959, 1961-1967

Al Kaline was a model of consistency who excelled with minimum fanfare. Over 22 seasons, the quiet, durable Tiger outfielder accumulated 3,007 hits, 399 home runs, a .297 batting average, 10 Gold Gloves and 15 All-Star team selections. "Mr. Tiger" won the batting title in 1955, hitting .340 at the age of 20. His reputation as a clutch performer was enhanced by his .379 average against St. Louis in the 1968 World Series.

Quote
"There have been a lot of great defensive players. The fella' who could do everything is Al Kaline. He was just the epitome of what a great outfielder is all about – great speed, catches the ball, and throws the ball well."
— Brooks Robinson

And Clemente:

Bio

Post-Season: 1960 World Series, 1970 NLCS, 1971 NLCS, 1971 World Series, 1972 NLCS
Awards: All-Star (15): 1960-67, 1969-72; National League MVP 1966; Gold Glove (12): 1961-1972; 1971 World Series MVP

Roberto Clemente Walker's pride and humanitarianism won him universal admiration. Despite an unorthodox batting style, the Pirates' great won four batting crowns and amassed 3,000 hits. He was equally brilliant in right field, where he displayed a precise and powerful arm. Clemente earned National League MVP honors in 1966, but achieved his greatest fame in the 1971 World Series, when he batted .414. Tragically, Clemente's life ended at age 38 - the victim of a plane crash while flying relief supplies to Nicaraguan earthquake victims.

Quote
"Some right fielders have rifles for arms, but he had a howitzer."
— Tim McCarver

Killericon

Killericon is happy to pick one of the best shortstops of all time: Cal Ripken Jr.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/3c/Cal_ripken_jr_1993.jpg

Calvin 'Cal' Edwin Ripken, Jr. (born August 24 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_24), 1960 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1960) in Havre de Grace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Havre_de_Grace%2C_Maryland), Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maryland)) is a former Major League Baseball (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_League_Baseball) player. Cal played his entire career for the Baltimore Orioles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltimore_Orioles) from 1981 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981_in_sports) to 2001 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001_in_sports) at shortstop (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shortstop) and third base (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_baseman). A 19-time MLB All-Star (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Major_League_Baseball_All-Star_Game), Cal is widely considered one of the best shortstops to ever play the game. At 6' 4", Cal pioneered the way for the larger and taller shortstops. Cal was raised in Aberdeen, Maryland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aberdeen%2C_Maryland) and attended Aberdeen High School (as did his brother Billy Ripken (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Ripken)), a town near Havre de Grace, in a baseball family. His father, Cal Sr. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cal_Ripken%2C_Sr.), was a long-time coach in baseball who managed the Orioles in the late 1980s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980s). His brother, Billy Ripken (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Ripken), played second base (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_baseman) for various teams, including the Orioles. He has two other siblings, Ellie and Fred. He is married to Kelly Geer and has a daughter, Rachel, born in 1989 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1989) and a son, Ryan, born in 1993 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1993).
Ripken was best known as baseball's "Iron Man" [1] (http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/news/mlb_news.jsp?ymd=20020808&content_id=99338&vkey=news_mlb&fext=.jsp) , playing in a record 2,632 straight games, spanning sixteen seasons, from (May 30 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_30), 1982 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1982) - September 20 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_20), 1998 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1998)). He played his 2131st consecutive game on September 6 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_6), 1995 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995), against the California Angels (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Angels), breaking the 56-year-old record set by the "Iron Horse" Lou Gehrig (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lou_Gehrig).
"The Streak"

Along the lines of Joe DiMaggio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_DiMaggio)'s 56 game hitting streak, Cal Ripken's consecutive game streak is regarded as one of baseball's 'unbreakable' records. His record, which took 16 years to establish, made him a popular player with the American League fans, who voted him into the AL All-Star team 18 out of 19 times[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cal_Ripken%2C_Jr.#_note-0).
Despite having statistics that put him among the best in the American League, Ripken played for an average team. The Baltimore Orioles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baltimore_Orioles) only made the playoffs 3 times in his 20 year career. When Ripken was viewed to be not performing well in the late 80's, fans booed and critics criticized his passion for the game often calling him "selfish". However, he continued to play every game until he took himself out on September 20, 1998.
During "The Streak", Cal played nearly the entire game each game, averaging 99.8% of time on the field [citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources)]. But Ripken had several close calls that almost ended the streak. In a 1985 game (#444 of the Streak), Ripken sprained his ankle while running out a double (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_%28baseball%29). The next day, Ripken's ankle swelled so bad that he couldn't play. However, that day was an exhibition game for the Orioles and Ripken sat out. In a game against the Seattle Mariners (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle_Mariners) in June of 1993, there was a brawl on the mound at Oriole Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriole_Park). Ripken twisted his right knee while trying to break up the brawl. "It was the closest I have ever come to not playing," Ripken later told the press. He woke up the next day and could not get out of bed. He told his wife Kelly about not being able to play and Kelly asked, "Can't you just play one inning?" Cal immediately responded, "YOU TOO?"[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources)] The Orioles had a game that night and Ripken played. He taped up his knee and took infield practice before the game, and then played every inning for the next two weeks. During that same year, Ripken's second child was about to be born sometime during the season. The media asked if Ripken would sit out if his child would be born on a game day and he said he would. However, Ripken's second child, Ryan, was born on an Orioles off day.
Another streak that is often mentioned is his consecutive innings streak. Ripken played in 8,243 straight innings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innings) from June 5 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_5), 1982 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1982_in_sports), to September 14 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/September_14), 1987 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1987_in_sports), also considered to be a record, although not an "official" one as the major leagues have not traditionally kept statistics on innings played by non-pitchers.
Cal Ripken is also noted for having played third base for the Rochester Red Wings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rochester_Red_Wings) in the longest game in professional baseball history: a 33 inning, 8 hour, 25 minute, 3-2 loss to the Pawtucket Red Sox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pawtucket_Red_Sox) that began on April 18th (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_18th), 1981 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981), and didn't end until June 23rd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_23rd) when play resumed. Contemporary Wade Boggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wade_Boggs) also played in this game, for the Red Sox.

James Emory Foxx (Beast or Double X)

http://www.seth.com/images/collection_pages/letters/08_pic2.gif

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 0", Weight 195 lb.

Debut May 1, 1925
Final Game September 23, 1945

Born October 22, 1907 in Sudlersville, MD
Died July 21, 1967 in Miami, FL

Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1951.



Known as the right handed Babe Ruth.


Played in the first All-Star Game in 1933 and each ASG for the next eight years, every season he was a full time player.


Retired with 534 home runs, second only to Ruth's 714. He remained second on the all-time home run list until Willie Mays passed him in 1967.


Won the AL MVP in 1932, 1933 and 1938. He was second in MVP voting in 1939.


Won the Triple Crown in 1933 (.356, 48 HR, 163 RBI).


Would have won a second Triple Crown in 1938 if not for Hank Greenberg's 58 HRs.


Seventh all-time with 1922 RBI.


Drove in over 100 runs 13 times, including 175 RBI in 1938. He led the league in RBI three times.


Fifth all-time with a .609 slugging percentage.


Won two AL batting championships and finished his career with a .325 average.


He was the HR champ four times despite competition from Ruth, Gehrig, Greenberg, and DiMaggio.


Led the league in slugging percentage and OPS five times.


Tired of doing chores on his father's farm, he tried to enlist in the Army at the age of ten.


Discovered by Connie Mack, he broke in as a catcher and backed up Mickey Cochrane for the first couple years of his career.


Remembered for his incredible power, but he was also a versatile athlete. Besides 1B and catcher, Foxx started 141 games at 3B and a couple dozen in the OF, he even started one game at shortstop.


The strongarmed Foxx also pitched in ten games and fared pretty well on the mound. He allowed only 13 hits in 23 innings of work and retired with a 1-0 record and a nifty 1.59 ERA.


He was equally effective in the post season. Foxx batted .350, .333 and .348 as Philadelphia won the World Series twice in three years from 1929-1931.


"But if I had broken Ruth's record
it wouldn't have made any difference.
Oh, it might have put a few more
dollars in my pocket, but
there was only one Ruth."

Jimmie Foxx -

I'm going to draft my first hurler. An Iowa farm boy who debuted in the majors as a teenager and went on to become the dominant power pitcher of his generation. He also missed substantial time to service.

This is about the range where he would legitimately be selected if it weren't for all the Cream and Clear post-2000 number inflation. I certainly wouldn't look down on anybody who selected him at this point.

I'm impressed the selectors in our draft have the sophistication to weigh all factors, including suspicious number inflation, while they've been making their picks. To that end, I just want to say the overall quality of drafting so far has been superb. None of the players picked to this point could be called reaches and probably about 90% of them are right on the money. I commend everybody for the fantastic job so far.

I may have reached for Piazza, but I think we've all been having a terrific draft thus far.

Agreed.

I may have reached for Piazza, but I think we've all been having a terrific draft thus far.
12 time All-Star.

Seven times in the top ten in MVP balloting.

All time HR leader among catchers.

.311 lifetime batting average.

I think you can make a strong case for Piazza going in this range.

Well, the seal has been broken on the modern day players, so I'm going to take one who's on pace to have one of the greatest careers in MLB history.

I will select Alex Rodriguez, SS/3B Mariners/Rangers/Yankees

http://www.bronxpride.com/files/images/alex-rodriguez-smacks-home-run.jpg

The youngest player to ever get to 450 HR's
Already a member of the 2000 hit club.
2 time A.L. MVP
2 time Gold Glove winner
10 time All-Star
It just blows my mind that a small, but extremely stupid and vocal segment of Yankee fans are trying to ruin this guy.

Atwater

With my next selction I chose Derek Jeter shortstop NYY.

You see his series against my Blue Jays?

I like the guy, but that was monstrously terrible.

Damn you for taking Arod, CO! He was to be one of my picks.

So, with my 5th pick I select Joe Morgan, 2B, Cincinnati Reds/Houston Colt .45's/Astros/San Francisco Giants/more.

With my 6th selection I'll take Josh Gibson, C, Homstead Grays/Pittsburgh Crawfords.

Gibson is considered by many to be the best catcher in baseball history, even though his Negro League stats are probably not totally valid (not that it's Gibson's fault he couldn't play in a league with better stat keeping).

Bill James has him rated as the 9th best player of all-time, the Sporting News 18th.

Gibson died at age 35 of a stroke, 3 months before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier.

"It (not talking to the media from 1974 through the end of his career)
was perfect for me at the time. It took me two years to make up my mind.
I was tired of getting slammed. To me it was a slap in the face. But it [his silence]
made me concentrate better. And the irony is that they wrote better without
access to my quotes. It's all quotes, anyway, and it all sounds the same to me.
After that they wrote better and more interesting stuff. I took it personal.
I got slammed quite a bit. To pick up the paper and read about yourself
getting slammed, that doesn't start your day off right."

Killericon is happy to pick yet another Home Run King; Sammy Sosa.

http://www.latino-mlb-players.com/images/Sammy%20sosa/sosa05.jpg


When the Chicago White Sox traded Sammy Sosa to their crosstown rival Cubs for George Bell in March of 1992, their young prospect had never hit more than fifteen home runs in a season at any level. But six years later, the young Dominican from the baseball goldmine of San Pedro de Macoris hit 66 home runs -- the second-highest total in baseball history -- as his pursuit of Mark McGwire in the race to break Roger Maris' record of 61 homers captivated the baseball world. Even though McGwire outpaced Sosa with 70 round-trippers, Sosa's leadership, effervescent personality and humility gave him an overwhelming victory in balloting for the NL MVP award in one of baseball's most memorable seasons.

Sosa's early years were spent in poverty. As a youngster in the Dominican Republic, he and his friends used tree branches as bats and milk cartons to field ground balls. To earn money, the young Sosa sold orange juice and shined shoes. An early Rangers scouting report described him as "malnourished," but there was no doubting his bat speed. Texas scout Omar Minaya signed him to a contract after agreeing to give Sosa a $3,500 signing bonus, most of which remained in the Dominican Republic with Sosa's family. But by the time he won the 1998 NL MVP Award, Sosa owned at least eight cars, including a Rolls-Royce, and a luxurious Chicago apartment two floors above Oprah Winfrey's.

Sosa's minor-league and early career performance never hinted at the potential power held in his slender 6'0" frame. In his first season in rookie ball, Sosa was a teammate of 1998 AL MVP Juan Gonzalez and future stars Dean Palmer and Wilson Alvarez, but displayed a disturbing tendency to chase bad pitches.

He played just 25 games for Texas in 1989 (hitting the first home run of his career off Roger Clemens on June 21st) before the Rangers traded him to the White Sox, along with pitcher Wilson Alvarez and infielder Scott Fletcher, for Harold Baines and Fred Manrique on July 29th. Years later, former Rangers owner George W. Bush would draw a big laugh at a South Carolina debate during his 2000 presidential campaign when he called the Baines/Sosa swap his biggest mistake as an adult.

In little more than two seasons with Chicago, Sosa never developed into a great hitter, but played a key role on the worst-to-almost-first White Sox of 1990. That season he was the only American League player to reach double-digits in doubles, triples, home runs and stolen bases, but he batted just .233, struck out 150 times in 532 at-bats, and made 13 errors in the outfield. Problems dogged Sosa off the field as well. That winter, he was accused of viciously beating his wife after she refused to grant him a divorce.

Frustrated by another subpar performance in 1991, the White Sox had no hesitation in sending Sosa to the crosstown Cubs before the 1992 season. While Sosa had yet to prove he was little more than a mediocre outfielder with good speed but no pop in his bat, the friendly confines of Wrigley Field would dramatically alter the course of Sosa's career. Limited to 67 games with the Cubs his first year (he fractured both his right hand and left ankle during the course of the season) Sosa began paying big dividends for Chicago in 1993. Suddenly emerging as a power threat, he more than doubled his career high for home runs, slamming 33. Adding 36 stolen bases, he became the first Cub to reach the 30/30 club -- a feat he would duplicate in 1995.

The next four seasons would look much the same for Sosa. He would hit as many as 40 home runs (in 1996), drive in as many as 119 runs (1995 and 1997), bat as high as .300 (1994), and strike out as many as 174 times (1997). Still, his team consistently finished out of contention, and after the 1997 season Cubs manager Jim Riggleman publicly criticized his star right fielder for being more concerned with his stats than with helping the team win.

Success in 1998 quickly brought an end to any acrimony that remained between the two. A flurry of offseason moves bolstered the Cubs' roster and raised hopes for the coming season. Rookie pitcher Kerry Wood was called up early in the season, and promptly tied Roger Clemens' major league record by striking out 20 Houston Astros on May 6th at Wrigley Field. With the Cubs near the top of the wild-card standings, Sosa had just nine home runs through May 24th -- fifteen behind McGwire.

But beginning with two homers against Atlanta the following day, Sosa embarked upon the greatest home run splurge baseball had ever seen. He set records with 21 circuit blasts over a 30-day period from May 25th through June 23rd, and another by hitting 20 home runs in June, the most ever hit in a single month. This spectacular run (which included one stretch of 21 round-trippers in 24 games) propelled him into a neck-and-neck race with McGwire for Roger Maris' record. On August 19th, McGwire watched from first base At Wrigley Field when Sosa slammed number 48 off Kent Bottenfeld of St. Louis, pulling ahead of the Cardinals' slugger for the first time all season. But two consecutive homers by McGwire later that game reclaimed a lead he would relinquish just once more.

Despite their contrasting personae, the pursuit of history forged a compelling and touching friendship between the towering, redheaded McGwire and the stylish, laid-back Sosa amidst the media maelstrom that surrounded the chase. The circus reached a crescendo during a Labor Day weekend series between the Cubs and Cardinals, but the two sluggers charmed the nation in joint press conferences, disregarding the pressure of the chase and by all appearances thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Sosa, who had insisted all along that McGwire would be the one to set the record, drew the biggest laughs by joking, "everyday a holiday for Sammy Sosa" and "baseball been 'bery, 'bery good to me." Earlier in the year, when McGwire had been criticized for using a controversial testosterone booster, Sosa revealed the secret of his success -- Flintstones vitamins.

It was only fitting that Sosa stood in right field on September 8th when McGwire hit the record-setting 62nd off Steve Trachsel at Busch Stadium. As McGwire celebrated outside his dugout, Sosa ran in from the outfield to deliver a heartfelt hug to the new home king. McGwire promptly lifted his friendly nemesis off his feet.

Although McGwire's Cardinals had long since exited post-season contention, Sosa's Cubs were in the thick of a thrilling three-way battle with the Mets and the Giants for the NL wild-card spot. The pressure of the pennant race heightened the drama of Sosa's home run barrage. On September 13th, Sosa tied McGwire by launching two mammoth shots out of Wrigley Field for numbers 61 and 62, while the Cubs pulled off a dramatic 11-10 sudden-death win to remain a game ahead of the Mets in the wild-card standings.

As the season drew to a close, fans of all teams greeted Sosa like a conquering hero. In San Diego on September 16th, a packed crowd at Qualcomm Stadium stood on its feet, cheering wildly, as Sosa batted with the bases full in the eighth inning of a tie game. When the slugger obliged the crowd by sending his third grand slam of the year into the second deck in left field, the fans called him back onto the field for a standing ovation. The next day several Padres complained that the contest had felt like a road game.

A week later in Milwaukee, Sosa hit number 64 and 65 to tie Hank Greenberg's 1938 record of 11 multi-homer games in one season. Two days later Sosa cranked number 66 in Houston, and for the second and last time that season, crept ahead of McGwire. For 47 minutes, before his friend and rival tied him with a home run in a game in St. Louis, Sammy Sosa had hit more home runs in a single season than any player in baseball history.

Even though McGwire ended the season with four home runs in his final two games to establish a new single-season record of 70, Sosa got the upper hand in two vital respects. First, the Cubs completed their dreamlike regular season by winning a one-game playoff at Wrigley Field over San Francisco to earn the wild-card spot. (In the NLDS, the overmatched Cubs were swept by the powerful Atlanta Braves in three games.) Second, Sosa, who batted .308 for the season and led the major leagues with 158 RBIs, 134 runs scored and 414 total bases, was named the NL MVP in a landslide vote over McGwire.

Sosa's offseason was a busy one. In Japan for a post-season goodwill tournament, Sosa managed to negotiate the delivery of much-needed supplies to his hurricane-devastated homeland. Strangely, a post-season parade in Sosa's honor was held in New York, but not in Chicago. During his stay, Sosa gave New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani a bat, which Giuliani mistakenly believed was the one Sosa had used to hit his 66th home run. Sosa later apologized for the misunderstanding.

Following the celebratory hoopla of the 1998 season, the follow-up felt like a letdown. While McGwire (65) and Sosa (63) racked up the third and fourth highest single-season home run figures in baseball history, the drama that had fueled the chase in 1998 seemed absent in 1999.

The following year began with a wrinkle, as new Cubs manager Don Baylor made it known early in 2000 that he wanted the slugger to steal more and play better defense. But the bulked-up Sosa wasn't as dangerous on the basepaths as he had been in the early '90s, and swiping bags was no longer a part of his game.

More glaring was Sosa's contract dispute with management. With the Cubs floundering in last place for much of the season, the front office was tempted to trade the star -- who was in the penultimate year of his contract -- to a contender for a horde of quality players. But despite shopping him around, the Cubs realized that public support to keep the slugger was tremendous, and they eventually took him off the market. Sosa ended up with another stellar year, even though the Cubs sported the worst record in the majors. He batted .320, tallied 138 RBIs, and slammed fifty homers, joining McGwire as the only other player to have three consecutive years of 50 home runs.

He was rewarded in March 2001 with a four-year, $72 million deal in March 2001, becoming the fourth-highest paid player in baseball at the time.

He is now an Unrestricted FA.

Bah. You can have Sosa. Obviously a product of the steroid era. I want nothing to do with Bonds, Maguire, Sosa, Palmeiro, Giambi, Canseco.....

They're all cheaters and a disservice to the game. Period.

'Bout time someone took Jackie.

Killericon is happy(but slightly embarresed to be taking the 4th modern player in a row) to select Ken Griffey Jr.

http://www.cincinnati.com/reds/wallpaper/800x600/jr.jpg

Griffey was raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, where his father, Ken Griffey, Sr. played for the Cincinnati Reds. The younger Griffey played baseball at Moeller High School, a Catholic school in Cincinnati better known for its football program. While he was in high school, he drew raves from Major League scouts for his batting swing, widely regarded as the best of his generation, and effortless fielding prowess. In fact, Griffey's teammates would supposedly play closer to the lines in order for Griffey to take advantage of (and display) his great range in center field.

In 1987 Griffey was selected with the first overall pick of that year's amateur draft by the Seattle Mariners. As a big leaguer, he was well on the way to the Rookie of the Year award but was thwarted when he slipped in the shower and broke a bone in his right hand in late July, 1989. While with the Mariners, Junior, as he is often called, established himself as one of baseball's premier players, and during the '90s, Griffey was considered one of the best players of the time. In fact, many consider him to be the "player of the 90s" despite playing in a hitter's park (the Kingdome) and having arguably inferior statistics to the less-likeable Barry Bonds. Other competitors for the title might have been Frank Thomas and, more questionably, Albert Belle. Before injuries cut into his production, he was a top run producer and the best center fielder in the big leagues although Devon White and Jim Edmonds also merit mention. Griffey hit for a high average, batting over .300 for seven of the years of the '90s, and hit with power as well, slugging 422 home runs during the decade.

Additionally, his defense in center field breeched no rivals during that decade. Thanks to his impressive range, Griffey frequently made spectacular diving plays, and he often dazzled fans by making over-the-shoulder basket catches (a la Willie Mays' "the Catch" in the 1954 World Series) and by robbing opposing hitters of home runs at the wall — leaping up and pulling them back into the field of play. For all of these reasons, Ken Griffey Jr. was one of baseball's most respected and well-liked players during the 1990s. He was featured on the Wheaties cereal box and, because of his general likability and lack of legal problems, was an effective pitchman. Griffey also had his own signature sneaker line from Nike, Inc.
One of Ken Griffey Jr. signature sneakers, the Nike Air Griffey Max.
One of Ken Griffey Jr. signature sneakers, the Nike Air Griffey Max.

Because of his all-around excellent play, he was a perennial participant in the All-Star Game, particularly during the 1990s although less so during the early '00s because of injuries. Junior has led his league multiple times in hitting categories and was awarded Gold Gloves for his defensive excellence from 1990 to 1999. Griffey also became one of a very small number to have played on the same team as his father, Ken Griffey Sr in 1990 and 1991. In 1997, he won the American League Most Valuable Player award, hitting .304, with 56 home runs and 147 runs batted in.

Perhaps the single most memorable moment of Griffey's career with the Mariners came during the 1995 American League Division Series (ALDS) against the New York Yankees. After falling behind in the series 0-2, they came back to take the next two games and create a must-win Game Five. In the bottom of the 11th inning of Game 5, Griffey scored from first base on an Edgar Martinez double, giving the Mariners the win and seeing them through to the American League Championship Series (ALCS). Although the Mariners lost the ALCS to now-Mariners manager Mike Hargrove's Indians, the moment is one of the most memorable in Mariners history, and the series has been credited with "saving baseball in Seattle", given speculation that the Mariners might move. A video game for Super NES, "Ken Griffey Jr.'s Winning Run" commemorates the moment.

In 1999, he ranked Number 93 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players. This list was compiled during the 1998 season, counting only statistics through 1997. It was argued by some that, had the voting been done two or three years later, he would have been ranked several places higher: at age 29 (going on 30), he was easily the youngest player on the list. That same year, Griffey was elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. However, when TSN updated their list for a new book in 2005, despite having surpassed 400 and 500 home runs, Griffey remained at Number 93. He is currently 11th place on the all-time home runs list with 556, eight ahead of Mike Schmidt and seven behind Reggie Jackson. He has the second-most of any active player, behind only Barry Bonds, who has 722.
Despite Griffey's elite performances and seemingly bright future in Seattle, he nonetheless became disenchanted with playing for the Mariners. Publicly, he expressed frustration over what he believed was a lack of commitment to winning on the part of Seattle management.

Also, there was speculation that Griffey was very unhappy with Seattle's new park, Safeco Field, a stadium in which it was much harder for hitters to produce runs than in the Kingdome. It has been reported that Griffey — along with other Seattle players — requested that the architects of Safeco Field bring the fences closer to home plate, but that, much to the players' chagrin, the designers built a park with deeper-than-average dimensions (especially in center field). This, combined with Safeco being at sea level and Seattle's typically dense, moisture-laden atmosphere, helped create a "pitcher-friendly" ballpark where power hitters like Griffey would see their batting statistics suffer. In the summer of 1999, it was reported that Griffey hit a ball that would likely have been a home run in the Kingdome, but turned into a long fly-out to center in Safeco. Then, allegedly, Griff stormed angrily to the Mariner dugout telephone, calling the Mariner General Manager and demanding a trade that day [citation needed]. Although Griffey has always denied an interest in baseball's hallowed records, it appeared in 1999 that he had his sights set on breaking Hank Aaron's all-time home run record. Another reason why Griffey might want to leave Seattle would be an interest in playing for the team for which his father starred for some time.

Griffey ultimately got his wish, and following the 1999 season, was traded to the Cincinnati Reds, for Mike Cameron, Brett Tomko, and Antonio Pérez. Initially, the future looked extremely bright for him in Cincinnati. It was the city in which he had grown up, and Griffey was reportedly very pleased to be playing on his father's former team — on the open market, Griffey could have made several million dollars more than the contract offered by the small-market Reds. However, his contract apparently includes backloaded payments which will be paid until 2024.

The 2000 season began what has generally been seen by the media as a decline in Griffey's superstar status. Although his statistics during this season were respectable, they were far below his previous level of play: in 145 games, Griffey hit .271 with 40 home runs, but his .942 On-base plus slugging was his lowest mark in five years. Griffey's request for his old jersey number also served as a distraction. While Griffey was wearing his father's number, 30, he was unable to wear his number of '24'. (A number that supposedly brought him much luck in Seattle). However, this number was already retired for the Cincinnati Reds' Tony Perez. The Reds did not grant Griffey his request. Additionally, from 2001 through 2004, Griffey was plagued by a seemingly endless string of injuries, including season-ending injuries in 2002, 2003, and 2004. Worse yet for Griffey, the cumulative effects of the injuries lowered his bat speed, resulting in less power and fewer home runs (he slugged only .426 before succumbing to injury in 2002, his lowest output in seven years). Some speculate that Griffey's myriad injuries are a result of a decade of playing on the Kingdome's artificial turf, which players claim is essentially like playing the game on asphalt. Others suggest that Griffey's lack of commitment to physical fitness while he was in his twenties (relative to other Major Leaguers like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, both of whom played effectively well into their forties) opened him up to injury problems as he got older. Whatever the causes, though, injuries forced Griffey to miss 260 out of 486 games from 2002 through 2004, diminishing both his skills and his star reputation. Consequently, he is not nearly the ubiquitous presence he once was on cereal boxes, television commercials, and the All-Star Game.

In 2004, Griffey avoided major injury during the first half of the season, and on June 20 became the 20th player to hit 500 career home runs. His 500th home run came, fittingly, on Father's Day in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium, with his father Ken Sr. in the stands; the homer also tied Ken Jr. with his father for career hits with 2,143. However, the injury bug bit again just before the All-Star break, when Griffey, Jr. suffered a partial hamstring tear, knocking him out of the All-Star Game and putting him on the disabled list yet again. He did get his 500th home run ball from a fan who was also there for Father's Day with his dad. The fan received many rewards from Griffey Jr.

Griffey finished the 2004 season on the disabled list after suffering a complete rupture of his right hamstring in San Francisco on August 11. The play in question occurred at SBC Park in a game against the San Francisco Giants. Griffey was starting in right field for the first time in his 16-year Major League career when he raced toward the gap to try to cut off a ball before it got to the wall. He slid as he got to the ball, but in the process hyperextended his right leg. He later came out of the game, complaining of "tightness" in the hamstring exacerbated by chilly conditions in San Francisco. But there was far more to it than anyone realized at the time.

Shortly after this injury, the Reds' team physician, Timothy Kremchek, devised an experimental surgery dubbed "The Junior Operation" that would use three titanium screws to reattach Griffey's hamstring. For several weeks, Griffey's right leg was in a sling that kept the leg at a 90-degree angle, and he was not able to move the leg until late October. After an intense rehabilitation period, he returned for the 2005 season. In April, he hit only .244 with only one homer (on April 30) and nine RBI.[2]

Starting May 1, the 2005 season saw the resurgence of a healthy Griffey. The fluid swing, which depends heavily on excellent lower body strength, returned to its original form, now that Griffey's hamstring and calf problems appear behind him. Junior's 35 home runs were his highest since his first year with the Reds as Griffey slowly moved up the career home run list. He ended the season tied with Mickey Mantle, after having passed Jimmie Foxx, Ted Williams, Willie McCovey, Ernie Banks, Eddie Mathews, and Mel Ott in 2005.

Early in September, he strained a tendon in his left foot (an injury unrelated to his past hamstring and calf problems), and was listed as day-to-day for several weeks. On September 22, with the Reds out of playoff contention, the team decided to bench him for the rest of the season so he could immediately have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and a separate operation to repair scars from his 2004 hamstring operation. Still, his 128 games in 2005 were the most he has played since 2000. Griffey's resurgence was recognized when he was named National League Comeback Player of the Year.

If his health remains intact, Junior could reach 600 home runs sometime in the 2007 season, at age 37. Had the chronic injuries of 2001-2004 not limited his astronomical progress, the question would have been when, not if, Griffey would surpass Hank Aaron's record of 755 career home runs.

Griffey also played in the inaugural 2006 World Baseball Classic (WBC) for the United States, where he was one of the team's biggest contributors, notching three home runs during the event.

During the second game of the 2006 season, Griffey hit home run #537 which overtook Mickey Mantle's 12th all-time position on the home run list.

Griffey and his wife Melissa have 3 children: George Kenneth III ("Trey"), daughter Taryn Kennedy, and adopted son Tevin Kendall. When Trey was born, then-Mariners' G.M. Woody Woodward sent him a player's contract dated 2012. Griffey switched his uniform number in 2006, from 30 to 3, to honor his three kids.

Griffey returned on May 11, 2006 from an injury he suffered to his knee on April 12, 2006 to hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the 11th inning against the Washington Nationals. On June 5th, 2006 Jr tied Fred McGriff's record by hitting a homerun in his 43rd different ballpark, at the St. Louis Cardinals' Busch Stadium. On June 19, 2006 Griffey hit career home run 548, tying him with Mike Schmidt, and then six days later passed Schmidt with 549. On June 27, 2006 Griffey hit his 550th career home run against the Kansas City Royals.

Hit the series winning home run off LA Dodgers reliever Tom Niedenfuer to end the 1985 NLCS. Smith had gone 3009 lefthanded ABs without a home run before connecting on that blast.

First, let me say that I hate you. I really hate you. You just took my favorite player of all time and the guy I had slated for my next pick. I hate you.

Also, just wanted to say that The Wizard's blast off of Niedenfuer didn't end the series. It was Jack Clark's blast off of Niedenfuer in the next game (a move that Lasorda is still criticized for to this day) in L.A. that was the series winner.

I really, really hate you. :cuss:

Oh yeah, last I recall, Clark's ball was sailing towards the top of those palm trees behind the bullpen. I wonder if its landed yet.

Yep. That was one of the biggest no-doubters in postseason history. The ball exploded off of his bat and got out of the yard in about half a heartbeat. I hadn't seen one quite like it since until Pujols destroyed that hanging slider from Lidge last year.

On second thought, I guess this makes us even since I nabbed Jack Youngblood ahead of you in the All-Time NFL draft. :)

Nothing will ever make us even for that.

I corrected the Ozzie bio. I still have to punch up Lefty's, but I'm feeling lazy.

and Hank Greenberg, 1B, Detroit Tigers/Pittsburgh Pirates.

http://www.allposters.com/IMAGES/PHO/AAFC002.jpg

The original Hammerin' Hank, like Ted Williams, lost some of his best years due to war.

Greenberg, then a bachelor, was one of the first major leaguers inducted into the service, entering 19 games into the 1941 season. He was discharged from the army on December 5, 1941, two days before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. He immediately enlisted as an officer candidate in the Air Corps. Hank served with distinction in the Far East until his discharge in mid-1945. He returned with a bang, with a home run in his first game. His grand slam on the final day of the season won the pennant for the Tigers. In the WS win over the Cubs, he hit two more homers and batted in seven runs.

Greenberg was also one of the few Jewish players and endured the worst ethnic taunting in baseball prior to Jackie Robinson's debut in 1947.

Lawrence Peter Berra

Better known as Yogi

Catcher New York Yankees 1946-65

-3 Time American League MVP

-15 straight All-Star appearances

-Member of 14 pennant winners and 10 World Series Champions

-Did not commit an error during the 1958 season

-His boyhood friend Bobby Hofman (played for New York baseball Giants) gave him the Yogi nickname after watching a movie about an Indian snake-charmer. "That yogi walks like Lawdie Berra"

-Mel Ott once described Yogi's play, "He seemed to be doing everything wrong, yet everything came out right. He stopped everything behind the plate and hit everything in front of it."

-Yankees GM Larry MacPhail was so devastated by his first encounter with Yogi, "The instant I saw him my heart sank and I wondered why I had been so foolish as to refuse to sell him. He was one of the most unprepossesing fellows I ever set eyes on."

Yogi was also, arguably, the best bad ball hitter ever. He could drive the ball off his shoetops, or off the bill of his cap.

Yogi was also, arguably, the best bad ball hitter ever. He could drive the ball off his shoetops, or off the bill of his cap.I didn't think anyone could be better at hitting bad pitches than Vlad Guerrero. It makes sense that Yogi would be a guy that swung and hit poor pitches.

RHP Greg Maddux

Gregory Alan Maddux (Mad Dog)

http://img48.imageshack.us/img48/830/aaamadduxts2.jpg

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 0", Weight 170 lb.

Debut September 3, 1986
Born April 14, 1966 in San Angelo, TX


Second man to win four Cy Young Awards (1992-1995).


Eight time All-Star.


Third in NL MVP in 1995. Fifth in NL MVP in 1994.


Winner of 15 consecutive Gold Gloves, only Brooks Robinson and Jim Kaat (16 each) have more.


15 or more wins in 17 consecutive seasons is a major league record.


327 wins are two behind Steve Carlton for 10th all-time.


3133 strikeouts are 12th all time.


Led the NL in ERA four times, second three times.


Led NL in WHIP four times, second four times.


Led the NL in wins three times.


His pinpoint control enabled him to lead the NL in Bases on Balls/9IP seven times. His mastery of the strike zone has been the key to his incredible success.


Led the NL in shutouts five times.


Led the NL in IP five straight years (1991-1995).


One of the most humble and unassuming superstar athletes of all time.


Finally saw his career ERA creep over 3.00 last year. Which was, in a way, a reason for sadness. (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/writers/tom_verducci/08/09/maddux.clemens/index.html)


"I could probably throw harder if I wanted, but why?
When they're in a jam, a lot of pitchers...try to throw harder.
Me, I try to locate better."

I didn't think anyone could be better at hitting bad pitches than Vlad Guerrero. It makes sense that Yogi would be a guy that swung and hit poor pitches.
Clemente was another guy who was lethal with pitches out of the strike zone. His tremendous influence spawned a lot of bad ball hitting proteges in Pittsburgh, too, including Manny Sanguillen who idolized him. Many Latin players have been known as bad ball hitters over the years. There's a saying in the Dominican Republic: "You can't walk your way off the island."

Killericon is proud to make one of the most homerish picks yet, RHP Roy Halladay.

http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2006/fantasy/04/03/becker.88lines/p1_halladay.jpg

Career ERA of 3.62, with 92 wins and 45 losses.

Harry Leroy "Roy" Halladay (born May 14, 1977 in Denver, Colorado), nicknamed Doc, is a Major League Baseball starting pitcher. Roy Halladay, the current ace of the Toronto Blue Jays, got his nickname from the old famous Colorado gunslinger, "Doc" Holliday. He has played for the Jays since 1998 and was the team's first draft selection (17th overall) in the 1995 MLB Draft. He bats and throws right-handed.

Halladay had his best seasons in 2002, when he made the All-Star team, and posted a 19-7 record with 168 strikeouts and a 2.93 earned run average, and 2003, when he won the American League Cy Young Award with a 22-7 record, 204 strikeouts and a 3.25 earned run average. In 2003, he also led the American League in innings pitched (266.0) and tied for the American League lead in complete games (nine). In 2004, he went 8-8.

The first half of the 2005 season proved to be largely successful for Halladay, as he proved to be one of the best pitchers in the American League. He was even slated to be the starting pitcher for the American League at the All-Star Game in Detroit. [1] However, on July 8, Halladay suffered a broken leg when he was hit with a line drive off the bat of Texas Rangers left fielder Kevin Mench. Obviously unavailable for the All-Star Game, he was replaced by Matt Clement of the Boston Red Sox. Despite rehabilitation and further evaluation on his leg, it was decided that Halladay would sit out the remainder of the season.

Through July 2006, Halladay leads the MLB with 13 wins. Although his strikeouts are down, his groundball to flyball ratio, complete games, and innings pitched are all among the A.L. Leaders.

Halladay's pitches include a good fastball, one of the best curveballs in the league, and a forkball. He also possesses one of the most dangerous cut fastballs in the league. He can use this pitch to curve in to righties as well as lefties, and is often called the most dangerous in an already great arsenal of pitches. He usually posts a good strikeout-to-walk ratio and is a ground ball pitcher.

On March 16, 2006 Halladay signed a $40 million, 3-year contract that will keep him with the club through the 2010 season. He was named to the American League All-Star Team as a reserve on July 3, 2006, along with four of his Jays teammates. It marks the second-most appearances in club history. (Seven Blue Jays were in the 1993 game.) His appearance in Pittsburgh will mark his fourth time as an All-Star representative.


Career highlights

* 4-time MLB All-Star: 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2006
* American League Cy Young Award: 2003
* The Sporting News Pitcher of the Year: 2003
* Players Choice Awards (Most Outstanding Pitcher): 2003

I cannot believe that these two guys are available this late. They dominated baseball during their respective eras. In rounds 8 and 9 Those Cheap Bastards select:

Jim Palmer, P, Orioles

and

Pete Rose, 1B/2B/3B/LF/RF, Reds/Phillies

We're gonna make sure and keep Petey away from the bookies and on the diamond! Besides, Pete did his gambling during his managing days.

Charles Augustus Nichols (September 14, 1869 - April 11, 1953), better known as Kid Nichols, was a Major League Baseball pitcher at the turn of the 20th century. Admired for his steadfast consistency year-in and year-out, Nichols amassed 361 wins over his 15 year career, the 7th highest total in major league history.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Nichols entered the major leagues in 1890 with the Boston Beaneaters and was an instant success. Nichols went 27-19 with a 2.23 ERA and 222 strikeouts and began a string of ten consecutive seasons with 20 wins or more. Nichols also had a major league record seven 30 win seasons in this time (1891 - 1894, 1896 - 1898) and a career high of 35 in 1892.

Nichols suffered his first losing season in 1900 when he went 13-16 but improved to 19-16 the following year. After a two year hiatus from the sport, Nichols returned to the 20 win plateau for the eleventh and final time in his career in 1904 for a new team, the St. Louis Cardinals. He finished his career in 1906 with the Philadelphia Phillies, who picked him up off waivers in 1905. Nichols retired with 361 wins, 208 losses, 1868 strikeouts and a 2.95 ERA. He was a part of five National League championship teams, all with the Boston Beaneaters (1891 - 1893, 1897, 1898). His 361 victories ranks 7th all-time, and his 5056 1/3 innings pitched ranks 11th all-time.

Nichols was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1949.

SP

Paige pitched for several Negro League teams to help boost attendance but he was best known for the days he spent with the Pittsburgh Crawfords and Kansas City Monarchs.

MLB Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Browns, Kansas City Royals

-Power pitcher with an infamous, windmill delivery during his Negro League days of the 1920s, 30s and 40s

-Later used his intuitiveness to fool big league batters as a 40ish pitcher

-Colorful guy who loved to put on a show for the fans

-Called his curveball his 'be ball' "because it be where I want it to be"

-Played with Josh Gibson in Pittsburgh to form possibly baseball's greatest battery ever

-Dizzy Dean once said, "If me and Satch were together in St. Louis, we could clinch the pennant by July and go fishing from then until World Series time"

-Paige barmstormed throughout the 40s and 50s and posted a 2.88 earned run average for Portland of the Pacific Coast League in 1961 at the age of 55

-At 59, pitched three innings for the Kansas City Athletics allowing zero runs to the Boston Red Sox

Great pick. I can't believe the Hall of Fame has missed this guy. Santo has endured the worst health issues in recent years. I hope they get him in soon and bring some joy to his life.

While they were cleared of all charges in court, those involved were kicked out of baseball by then commissioner Kenesaw "Mountain" Landis.


Another great pick.

Jackson was aware of what was going on in 1919, but he clearly wasn't participating. Jackson's .375 average led the Sox in the Series. He also led the team in runs scored (5) and RBI (6) and he hit Chicago's only home run.

The superb film Eight Men Out depict Jackson as a guileless country boy who was intimidated by Chick Gandil and the other conspirators and it rings true given his performance on the field.

"I copied (Shoeless Joe) Jackson's style because I thought he was the greatest hitter I had ever seen, the greatest natural hitter I ever saw. He's the guy who made me a hitter." - Babe Ruth

Damn. I was at work all day and then went straight to training camp (with my sideline passes :approve: ). I haven't had a chance to get on a computer since 6:00 am this morning.

Ok, I'll take Carl Hubbell, P, New York Giants.

Then I'll take Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown, P, Cardinals/Cubs/Reds and two teams from the Federal League.

I think I might draft Antonio Alfonseca with a later pick just to give Mordecai company.

Andre Nolan Dawson (Hawk)

http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/9063/gdawson250bo0.jpg

Born July 10, 1954 in Miami, FL

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 3", Weight 195 lb.

Debut September 11, 1976
Final Game September 29, 1996

My all time favorite player. Bad knees and the unforgiving astroturf at Olympic Stadium prevented him from being a first ballot Hall of Famer.


NL Rookie of the Year in 1977.


NL MVP in 1987.


Second in NL MVP voting in 1981 and 1983.


Eight Gold Gloves. Four as a wide ranging CF and four as a cannon armed RF.


Steve Sax called Dawson, "The Ozzie Smith of outfielders."


Eight time All-Star.


438 home runs were good for 25th all time when he retired.


Was the third man in baseball history to attain more than 400 HRs and 300 SBs.


Led the majors in home runs in 1987 with 49.


Led the majors with RBI in 1987 with 137.


Led the NL in hits in 1983.


Led the NL in total bases in 1983 and 1987.


Led the NL in extra base hits in 1982 and 1983.


Led the NL in hit by pitches four times.


Was intentionally walked five times in a 16 inning game, a major league record.


Dawson's 1591 RBI are 28th all time. Every player in history who has more RBI is in the Hall of Fame or not yet eligible for enshrinement.


His 1039 extra base hits are 21st all time. Every player in history who has more extra base hits is in the Hall of Fame or not yet eligible for enshrinement. The next eight players on the all time list for extra base hits who are eligible for enshrinement are also in the Hall of Fame.


"Nobody played on sheer guts and bad knees longer than Hawk.
He could have had a lot bigger numbers. He was a big-time player."

Dusty Baker -

Killericon

Killericon is happy to strengthen his pitching rotation with Phil Niekro.

http://imagesource.allposters.com/images/PHO/AAEI020.jpg

Philip Henry Niekro (born April 1, 1939 in Blaine, Ohio) is a former pitcher in Major League Baseball and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

With 318 career victories, Niekro is one of the most successful knuckleball pitchers of all time. He was also an excellent fielder, winning the National League Gold Glove award five times. Together with his brother and sometime teammate Joe, the Niekro brothers are the winningest brother combination in baseball history, with 539 wins between them. Phil Niekro's 121 career victories after the age of 40 is a major league record, and his longevity is attributed to the knuckleball, which, while a difficult pitch for pitchers to master, is easy on the arm and difficult for batters to hit. He is also the uncle of current MLB player Lance Niekro.

Niekro pitched for 20 seasons for the Atlanta Braves (two of those seasons when the team was still in Milwaukee) and was popular in the city of Atlanta for remaining loyal to a team that often had a losing record, as well as for his contributions to Atlanta charities. On August 5, 1973, he threw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres.

The Braves released the 45-year-old Niekro in 1984, who then signed with the New York Yankees and went on to win 16 games and make the last of his five All-Star appearances. It was while pitching for the Yankees that Niekro gained entry into the exclusive 300 win club with a shutout win over the Toronto Blue Jays on October 6, 1985. At 46, Niekro became the oldest pitcher to pitch a shutout in the major leagues, and became the only pitcher to throw a complete game shutout for his 300th win. Ironically, he did not throw his trademark knuckleball until the final hitter.

After two seasons in New York, Niekro pitched for the Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays in 1986 and 1987. The Blue Jays released him after he pitched ineffectively, and as a publicity stunt, the Braves brought him back for one last start to wrap up his career late in the 1987 season. At the age of 48, Niekro was the oldest player in major league history to play regularly, and his 24 seasons in the major leagues without a World Series appearance is a major league record. He only appeared in the post season twice, making a playoff start in 1969 and again in 1982, both for Braves teams that would go on to lose the series.

After the end of his professional baseball career, Niekro managed the all-women Colorado Silver Bullets baseball team. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1997.

Career ERA of 3.35.

This is torture. The last time I made a pick, and then realised that there was a monster steal out there, but had to wait for your delayed picks, YOU picked him.

tsk tsk

I'm screwed.

Hey KI, why are you so eager to make your pick? I'm just going to take him.... ;)

Knowing you, you're gonna take my primary pick AND my backup pick.

Those Cheap Bastards select:

George Sisler, 1B, St. Louis Browns/Boston Braves

and

Hal Newhouser, P, Tigers/Indians

Sisler:

Awards: 1922 American League Most Valuable Player

Bio: A sharp batting eye and extraordinary fielding ability at first base led Ty Cobb to call George Sisler "the nearest thing to a perfect ballplayer." The owner of an engineering degree, Sisler was one of baseball's most intelligent and graceful players, starring predominantly for the St. Louis Browns. He won two batting titles, hitting over .400 both times, and amassed an astounding total of 257 hits in 1920, a record that stood for 84 years until surpassed by Ichiro Suzuki in 2004. He had a 41-game hitting streak in 1922, hit .300 or better 13 times and had a sizzling .340 lifetime batting average.

Quote
"One of the very greatest who ever lived. Golly, he hit like blazes: .407 one year and .420 another. He was unbelievable with that bat. Really, you had to see it to believe it."
— Jimmy Austin

Did You Know... that George Sisler began his big league career as a pitcher, and once, during his rookie season, defeated future Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson?

Newhouser:

Post-Season: 1945 World Series, 1954 World Series
Awards: All-Star (7): 1942-1948; Most Valuable Player of the American League in both 1944 and 1945

"Prince Hal" Newhouser won back-to-back Most Valuable Player awards (1944-1945), and with his blazing fastball, he became a strikeout king. Over 17 campaigns, 15 with Detroit, he won 207 games. From 1944 to 1946, he recorded win totals of 29, 25 and 26, consecutively, with annual ERAs of 2.22, 1.81 and 1.94, respectively. Newhouser hurled the pennant clincher for the Tigers in 1945 and followed with two World Series victories over the Chicago Cubs.

It's Trevor time!

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/1/1b/TervorTime.jpg/800px-TervorTime.jpg

Killericon is happy to see his closer get past the snaretrap that is JCMElway, and picks Trevor Hoffman.

http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2005/scorecard/12/07/truth.rumors.mlb/p1_hoffman.jpg

When Hoffman was six weeks old, he had to have one of his kidneys removed because an arterial blockage had formed there. As a kid growing up near Anaheim, he wasn't allowed to play football or wrestle, but he played most other sports. He especially loved baseball because his brother Glenn, who was nine years older, became the shortstop for the Boston Red Sox when Trevor was 12. "I was the perfect age," Trevor says. "I'd hang around the clubhouse, wear his hat, his shoes, even though they were 10 sizes too big."

When he wasn't following Glenn, or his other brother, Greg, a high school basketball coach, he was going with his father, Ed, to Angels games. For 15 years Ed Hoffman was the famous singing usher at Angels games. Before that, he sang with the Royal Guards, a troupe that performed all over the world. "We get our professionalism from him," Trevor says. "But none of us kids can carry a tune. It's pretty sad, because my father [who died in 1994] was great." Trevor's mother, Mikki, is a former ballerina who was born in England. "She says we get our athleticism from her," says Trevor.

Trevor Hoffman proposed to his wife, Tracy, a former Buffalo Bills cheerleader, during Super Bowl XXVII. They have three sons: Brody Burke, Quinn Eddie, and Wyatt Quade.

Originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds as a shortstop after leading the University of Arizona team in hitting in 1988 with a .371 batting average, 35 points better than teammate J.T. Snow in 1989, Hoffman was converted to a pitcher in 1991 after batting .212 with 23 RBI in 103 games while playing short and third for Single-A Charleston (then a Cincinnati Reds minor league affiliate). The move, suggested by Charleston manager Jim Lett, was so successful that in his first season on the mound, Hoffman threw a total of 47 2/3 innings at Cedar Rapids and at Double A Chattanooga, and had a 1.89 ERA and 75 strikeouts.

Hoffman proved to have such a live arm that he was taken by the Florida Marlins in the 1992 expansion draft and a year later was involved in the five-player trade that sent slugger Gary Sheffield from the San Diego Padres to Florida during the infamous 1993 fire sale. Hoffman is the only prospect acquired from the fire sale to develop into a legitimate star despite the Padres dumping players the caliber of Sheffield, Fred McGriff, Bruce Hurst, and Craig Lefferts among others.

On May 6, 2005, Hoffman recorded his 400th save against the St. Louis Cardinals. He is only the third person to do so, following John Franco (424 saves) and Lee Smith (478 saves). On August 24, 2005, Hoffman passed Franco for second place on the all-time saves list with 425 after the Padres beat the Houston Astros 7-4. Hoffman was the losing pitcher in the 2006 All-Star Game, despite having two strikes with two outs on eventual MVP Michael Young.

When Trevor Hoffman enters a home game during a save situation, the sound system blares the signature entrance song "Hell's Bells" (by AC/DC) as Hoffman jogs from the bullpen to the mound.

When Hoffman first came into the league he was a fireballer, throwing in the low to mid 90’s with a tight curveball. Hoffman’s repertoire now includes one of the game’s best changeups, a more modest four-seam fastball in the 84-88 MPH range, a slower cut fastball that moves in towards a left handed batter, and he even mixes in a slider and a curveball a handful of times a year for good measure.

However, for all intents and purposes, Hoffman is a two-pitch pitcher, alternating between fastballs and changeups. It is the arm action on the change up and the way that the pitch drops just before it reaches the plate (almost as if someone was pulling on a string attached to the pitch) that has allowed Hoffman to be as successful as he has been over the years.

Trevor Hoffman learned the change up, which he actually throws with a palmball grip instead of a circle changeup grip, in 1995 when he did not have his best fastball because he was pitching most of the year with a torn rotator cuff. Hoffman opted to pitch through the pain and have surgery in the off-season rather than end his season early. He came back the following year to throw in the low 90's, with a tight curveball and that terrific changeup, which reportedly made his fastball look as if was going 110 mph.

As late as 1998, Trevor’s best season, he was throwing his fastball in the in the low 90’s but his velocity has dropped off since then. His velocity has actually improved since he had shoulder surgery that forced him to miss almost all of the 2003 season. Before that procedure, however, Hoffman’s fastball had dipped to the low to mid 80’s. Despite his diminished velocity, however, Hoffman’s strikeout numbers remained very good, striking out more than a batter per inning every season up to 2003 and striking out nearly that many in 2004 and 2005. In the first half of 2006, his strikeout numbers had fallen off, however.

Highlights

* 5-time All-Star (1998-2000, 2002, 2006)
* Rolaids Relief Man of the Year Award (1998)
* Hutch Award (2004)
* TSN Reliever of the Year Award (1998)
* Led league in saves (1998)

C Ivan Rodriguez

Ivan Rodriguez Torres (Pudge or I-Rod)

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 5' 9", Weight 205 lb.

Debut June 20, 1991
Born November 27, 1971 in Manati, P.R.

http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/3406/mbipug2pnv4.jpg


AL MVP in 1999.


10th in MVP voting 1996, 1998, 2004.


2003 NLCS MVP. He batted .321 with two HR and 10 RBI.


13 time All Star.


Batted over .300 nine times.


Lifetime batting average of .304


Winner of 11 Gold Gloves, the most ever by a catcher.


No other catcher in the past 35 years has been as successful at throwing out potential base stealers. Rodriguez has thrown out 48% of would-be base stealers throughout his career. The best percentage in baseball.


Signed with a Detroit Tiger team that lost 119 games in 2003 and helped them win 29 more games in 2004.


Pudge's handling of a mostly young pitching staff has been a key to the Tigers success. Detroit's team ERA has gone from 5.30 in 2003 to a major league best 3.72 in 2006.


“I hate losing games. I'm not a loser. It's hard for me to be on a team losing every day. That's not me. That's not the type of player that I am. I love winning.”

Its just cool seeing the whole thing. This was a great idea. I check this thread first every time I log onto the Mane.

Probably have to resort to itty bitty font size by the time we get to round 26.

I know what you mean. The only thing that concerned me about it is the character limit on posts. I'm not sure what it is, but I've had to split particularly long articles in half because of it in the past.

Hell with it, we'll keep it going until it doesn't let us anymore. :thumbs:

I'll eliminate team names when that happens and just list the player and position. That should buy us a bunch of space.

Albert just doubled down the line. 3 for 4 this afternoon.

It's Trevor time!

Killericon is happy to see his closer get past the snaretrap that is JCMElway, and picks Trevor Hoffman.

http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2005/scorecard/12/07/truth.rumors.mlb/p1_hoffman.jpg

When Hoffman was six weeks old, he had to have one of his kidneys removed because an arterial blockage had formed there. As a kid growing up near Anaheim, he wasn't allowed to play football or wrestle, but he played most other sports. He especially loved baseball because his brother Glenn, who was nine years older, became the shortstop for the Boston Red Sox when Trevor was 12. "I was the perfect age," Trevor says. "I'd hang around the clubhouse, wear his hat, his shoes, even though they were 10 sizes too big."

When he wasn't following Glenn, or his other brother, Greg, a high school basketball coach, he was going with his father, Ed, to Angels games. For 15 years Ed Hoffman was the famous singing usher at Angels games. Before that, he sang with the Royal Guards, a troupe that performed all over the world. "We get our professionalism from him," Trevor says. "But none of us kids can carry a tune. It's pretty sad, because my father [who died in 1994] was great." Trevor's mother, Mikki, is a former ballerina who was born in England. "She says we get our athleticism from her," says Trevor.

Trevor Hoffman proposed to his wife, Tracy, a former Buffalo Bills cheerleader, during Super Bowl XXVII. They have three sons: Brody Burke, Quinn Eddie, and Wyatt Quade.

Originally drafted by the Cincinnati Reds as a shortstop after leading the University of Arizona team in hitting in 1988 with a .371 batting average, 35 points better than teammate J.T. Snow in 1989, Hoffman was converted to a pitcher in 1991 after batting .212 with 23 RBI in 103 games while playing short and third for Single-A Charleston (then a Cincinnati Reds minor league affiliate). The move, suggested by Charleston manager Jim Lett, was so successful that in his first season on the mound, Hoffman threw a total of 47 2/3 innings at Cedar Rapids and at Double A Chattanooga, and had a 1.89 ERA and 75 strikeouts.

Hoffman proved to have such a live arm that he was taken by the Florida Marlins in the 1992 expansion draft and a year later was involved in the five-player trade that sent slugger Gary Sheffield from the San Diego Padres to Florida during the infamous 1993 fire sale. Hoffman is the only prospect acquired from the fire sale to develop into a legitimate star despite the Padres dumping players the caliber of Sheffield, Fred McGriff, Bruce Hurst, and Craig Lefferts among others.

On May 6, 2005, Hoffman recorded his 400th save against the St. Louis Cardinals. He is only the third person to do so, following John Franco (424 saves) and Lee Smith (478 saves). On August 24, 2005, Hoffman passed Franco for second place on the all-time saves list with 425 after the Padres beat the Houston Astros 7-4. Hoffman was the losing pitcher in the 2006 All-Star Game, despite having two strikes with two outs on eventual MVP Michael Young.

When Trevor Hoffman enters a home game during a save situation, the sound system blares the signature entrance song "Hell's Bells" (by AC/DC) as Hoffman jogs from the bullpen to the mound.

When Hoffman first came into the league he was a fireballer, throwing in the low to mid 90’s with a tight curveball. Hoffman’s repertoire now includes one of the game’s best changeups, a more modest four-seam fastball in the 84-88 MPH range, a slower cut fastball that moves in towards a left handed batter, and he even mixes in a slider and a curveball a handful of times a year for good measure.

However, for all intents and purposes, Hoffman is a two-pitch pitcher, alternating between fastballs and changeups. It is the arm action on the change up and the way that the pitch drops just before it reaches the plate (almost as if someone was pulling on a string attached to the pitch) that has allowed Hoffman to be as successful as he has been over the years.

Trevor Hoffman learned the change up, which he actually throws with a palmball grip instead of a circle changeup grip, in 1995 when he did not have his best fastball because he was pitching most of the year with a torn rotator cuff. Hoffman opted to pitch through the pain and have surgery in the off-season rather than end his season early. He came back the following year to throw in the low 90's, with a tight curveball and that terrific changeup, which reportedly made his fastball look as if was going 110 mph.

As late as 1998, Trevor’s best season, he was throwing his fastball in the in the low 90’s but his velocity has dropped off since then. His velocity has actually improved since he had shoulder surgery that forced him to miss almost all of the 2003 season. Before that procedure, however, Hoffman’s fastball had dipped to the low to mid 80’s. Despite his diminished velocity, however, Hoffman’s strikeout numbers remained very good, striking out more than a batter per inning every season up to 2003 and striking out nearly that many in 2004 and 2005. In the first half of 2006, his strikeout numbers had fallen off, however.
