With their 21st pick the Denver Zephyrs select Bert Blyleven, P, Twins/Rangers/Indians/etc.

Blyleven is fifth all-time in strikeouts and has probably the best case of any eligible player not in the Hall of Fame to be in enshrined in Cooperstown.

His finishing pitch was a nasty, 12-to-6 curveball.
