With there next selection in the all time MLB Draft The Greeley Grays select
Jim "Catfish"Hunter P Athletics/Yankees
Jim "Carfish" Hunter was a high school star who almost lost his chance at the big leagues when he shot part of his foot off in a hunting accident. In 1968 he threw a perfect game for Oakland, and he won 20 games five straight times. A durable staff workhorse, Hunter pitched a decade without missing a start. Despite winning just 40 games after the age of 30, Hunter was named to the Hall of Fame in 1987

All this talk of mean pitchers has got me envious.

Another Blue Jays pick, Killericon selects David Wells.



David Lee Wells (born May 20, 1963 in Torrance, California) is a Major League Baseball player who has been one of the game's top left-handed pitchers for the past several years. He currently pitches for the Boston Red Sox, and has also pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays, Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, and San Diego Padres.

Nicknamed "Boomer" for his physique (6-3, listed at 250 pounds (109 kg) but thought to be much more) and off-field interests such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Wells was a journeyman starter for the first eight seasons of his career. He debuted for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1987 as a reliever and did not secure a job as a full-time starter until he was 30 years old, despite pitching well most of the time.

He emerged as a top-flight pitcher in 1995, when he was 32. After starting the year at 10-3 for the last-place Detroit Tigers and making his first All-Star Game appearance, he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for C.J. Nitkowski, Mark Lewis, and prospect Dave Tuttle. He finished that season with a 16-8 record and a 3.26 ERA. At the end of the season he was traded to the Baltimore Orioles for Curtis Goodwin and prospect Trovin Valdez. In 1996 he pitched then-career high 224 innings but finished with an 11-14 record.

In 1997, he signed as a free agent with the New York Yankees, his favorite team because of a lifelong interest in baseball legend Babe Ruth. He asked for uniform number 3, and was of course denied, as the Babe's number had been long retired. He ended up taking 33 for the Yankees. (He wore 3 for the Red Sox in 2005, before deciding to switch numbers with teammate Edgar Renteria who wore # 16 and gave Renteria his number 3 a number of which he wore when he was with the Cardinals, Wells did it to try to end a slump.) After posting a 16-10 mark in 1997, Wells pitched brilliantly in the Yankees' record-setting 1998 season. He rung up an 18-4 record, finished fifth in the league in ERA (3.49) and was third in voting for the Cy Young Award.

On May 17, 1998, Wells became the 15th pitcher in major league history to pitch a perfect game when he blanked the Minnesota Twins, 4-0. In an interesting historic note, Wells attended the same San Diego high school as Don Larsen, whose perfect game for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series remains the only no-hitter ever thrown in postseason play and was until then the only perfect game thrown by a Yankee. David Cone would add a third Yankee perfect game in 1999.

After the season, Wells returned to the Blue Jays as part of a trade for Roger Clemens, along with Homer Bush and Graeme Lloyd. He continued to win north of the border, with records of 17-10 and 20-8 over the next two years. He and pitcher Matt DeWitt were then traded to the Chicago White Sox, in a deal that was quickly mired in controversy. The primary player being traded by the White Sox, starting pitcher Mike Sirotka, was injured at the time of the deal, and he never pitched in the major leagues again. Toronto's general manager, Gord Ash, had not made the deal contingent on the results of a medical examination, however, and MLB ruled in favor of the White Sox. The Blue Jays thus received only Kevin Beirne, Brian Simmons, and minor leaguer Mike Williams, and the mistake ultimately cost Ash his job.

The deal did not turn out particularly well for the White Sox, either, as Wells struggled with back problems in 2001 and pitched only 100 2/3 innings. After the season's end, he returned to the Yankees, a deal that was again immersed in controversy as he had already reached an oral agreement to join the Arizona Diamondbacks. Despite having lost some velocity from his fastball, he retained his excellent curveball and his control, and posted an outstanding 19-7 record in 2002.

Wells was the subject of some controversy prior to the 2003 season, when his autobiography Perfect I'm Not: Boomer on Beer, Brawls, Backaches and Baseball, was published. The book upset the Yankees' management, and Wells was fined $100,000 by the team for disparaging comments which appeared in it. One of them included himself having a hangover when he pitched his perfect game. Amusingly, Wells claimed to have been misquoted in the book, which was presumably penned by a ghost writer. The problems didn't carry over to the field, however. Wells posted a 15-7 record and helped the Yankees win another pennant.

On September 28, 2003, the final day of the regular season, Wells earned the 200th win of his career in a game managed by Clemens, who had won his 300th game earlier in the season and was thought to be retiring from baseball (Clemens ended up putting off his retirement). Regular Yankees manager Joe Torre let Clemens manage the last, meaningless game of the regular season, and Clemens pulled Wells from the game in the eighth inning.

On January 1, 2004, Wells was signed as a free agent by the San Diego Padres to a one-year contract. Wells posted a 12-8 record with a 3.73 ERA to start off his second stint in the National League.

On December 11, 2004, Wells signed a two-year deal with the Boston Red Sox. Getting off to a bad start, many fans questioned the decision of general manager Theo Epstein, but after coming off of the DL and getting rocked in his first start back in Oakland, David Wells became the same dominating pitcher he was in the past. He went on to post a 15-7 record, with a 4.45 ERA. Wells pitched much better than his ERA may show, but had a few very poor outings, which caused his ERA to "balloon." After the 2005 season, Wells requested a trade back to the West Coast, but he eventually withdrew that request and has resigned himself to one last year pitching for the Red Sox, after which he is expected to retire.

On March 28, 2006, the Red Sox announced that Wells would begin 2006 on the disabled list, as he is still recovering from surgery performed on his right knee. In Wells' absence, the Red Sox have relied upon a four-man pitching rotation, featuring Curt Schilling, Tim Wakefield, Josh Beckett, and Matt Clement. After pitching one game on April 12, he was once again placed on the 15-day disabled list. He has announced that if his knee does not improve he will retire. Wells came off the disabled list on May 26, to make his second start of the year against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

On May 26, 2006, Wells was hit on his right knee by a ball, by Tampa Bay's Travis Lee. His future is unclear, but NESN commentator Jerry Remy said that although premature, May 26 could very well have been the final outing for David Wells. On May 31, David was moved to the 15-day disabled list to make room on the 25-man roster for pitcher David Pauley. This move to the DL was made retroactive to May 27.

Wells owns a career record of 227-143, including a 164-90 mark since 1995. His career ERA of 4.06 looks unimpressive, but it is above average for the big-hitting era in which he's had his best seasons. Despite his amazing longevity and many achievements, most considered him to be at best a borderline candidate for the Baseball Hall of Fame; while there are other pitchers in the Hall who came back from lackluster starts to their careers (i.e. Sandy Koufax and Nolan Ryan), none of them took until their 30s to achieve baseball success as Wells did.

Actuary Jon Ketzner once said Wells has "the best body in baseball." He is widely considered to have been joking - but Wells' longevity is nonetheless quite notable.

Those Cheap Bastards select:

Rollie Fingers, RP, A's/Padres/Brewers

Post-Season: 1971 ALCS, 1972 ALCS, 1972 World Series, 1973 ALCS, 1973 World Series, 1974 ALCS, 1974 World Series, 1975 ALCS, 1981 ALDS
Awards: All-Star (7): 1973-1976, 1978, 1981-1982; MVP 1981; Cy Young 1981; Rolaids Relief Man Award (4): 1977-1978, 1980-1981; 1974 World Series MVP
Pitching

Bio
Rollie Fingers' 17-year career epitomized the emergence of the modern-day relief ace. After watching him post inconsistent results as a starter, the A's moved Fingers to the bullpen. He excelled quickly and frequently in his new role. Relying on a sharp slider, Fingers went on to notch 341 career saves. Known for his handlebar mustache, Fingers became a familiar site during the post-season, appearing in 16 World Series games. He won both the American League MVP and Cy Young Award with the Brewers in 1981.

Quote
"Before, he was a real power pitcher. Now, he's the type of pitcher who has command of all of his pitches. Another thing is the poise he has out there. He knows he's going to get them out. He gives me a lot of confidence when he's out there."
— Milwaukee Brewers Manager, Rene Lachemann -1984

Did You Know... that Rollie Fingers won the 1974 World Series Most Valuable Player Award with one win and two saves for the World Champion Oakland A's?

And for the next pick:

Mickey Cochrane, C, A's/Tigers

Post-Season: 1929 World Series, 1930 World Series, 1931 World Series, 1934 World Series, 1935 World Series
Awards: All-Star 1934-1935; American League Most Valuable Player 1928, 1934
Hitting

Bio
Mickey Cochrane batted .320 during his 13-year career and excelled behind the plate, but he also possessed that special trait - a fierce, competitive spirit - which gave him exceptional leadership qualities. "Black Mike" was the spark of the Athletics' pennant-winning teams of 1929, '30 and '31, hitting .331, .357 and .349, respectively. As player-manager for the Detroit Tigers from 1934 to 1937, he directed them to a league championship in 1934 and the World Series title in '35. A beaning in 1937 ended his playing career.

Quote
"There were few things as exciting as watching somebody trying to get in there on a close play with Cochrane. Home plate was his, you see. You had to take it away from him. Tough? Just the same as a piece of flint."
— Doc Cramer

Did You Know... that Mickey Cochrane hit a home run in the last official at bat of his major league career?

For a period of time, Willie had the longest recorded home run in about half of the National League ballparks.

He hit balls clean out of Dodger Stadium in 1969 and 1971. Nobody else accomplished the feat until McAndro did it 30 years later.

Killericon selects P Kenny Rogers.




Signed to the Texas farm team when he was only seventeen years old, he was converted into a pitcher on the strength of his throwing arm and left-handedness.

During his career, he has played for the Texas Rangers (1989–95, 2000–02, 2004–05), the New York Yankees (1996–97), Oakland Athletics (1998–99), the New York Mets (1999), the Minnesota Twins (2003), and the Detroit Tigers (2006).

Rogers became the fourteenth major leaguer to pitch a perfect game on July 28, 1994 with the Rangers against the California Angels.
Gold Gloves

Rogers has also won four Gold Glove Awards at pitcher with the Rangers in 2000, 2002, 2004 & 2005.

* Prior to the start of the game Detroit Tigers Kenny Rogers receives the Rawlings Golden Glove Award from HOF Al Kaline Friday night at Comerica Park in Detroit May 19, 2006

* Kenny Rogers with his fifth Golden Glove Award.

200 Career Wins

On Sunday June 18, 2006 Kenny Rogers won his 200th game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, during which Detroit set a club record with eight home runs.[1] With the 12-3 victory, Rogers (10-3) became the ninth active pitcher with at least 200 wins.


He is the only left-handed pitcher selected for each of the last two All-Star Games. It was announced on 2 July 2006 that he has also been selected for the 2006 AL squad, and was American League manager Ozzie Guillen's pick for starting pitcher. In his first All-Star Game start, he pitched two innings and gave up three hits and one run -- a solo home run to David Wright).

Rogers had refused to talk to local media during the 2005 season after they published a report saying Rogers was having trouble trying to get the Rangers to give him a contract extension, and that he would retire if he didn't get one.

On June 29, 2005, after walking out onto Ameriquest Field for a pre-game warmup against the Los Angeles Angels, Rogers shoved two cameramen, knocking a camera to the ground. One of the reporters then resumed filming and Rogers shoved him again, this time kicking the camera after it had been knocked to the ground a second time. He had to be restrained and was sent home. Larry Rodriguez of Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex' Fox Network affiliate KDFW was taken to a local hospital, complaining of shoulder, arm and leg pain. While in the hospital, Rodriguez made an official complaint of assault against Rogers.

On July 1, 2005, Commissioner Bud Selig suspended Rogers for 20 games and fined him $50,000. While an appeal of his suspension was pending, Rogers appeared at the 2005 All-Star Game in Detroit.

On July 18, 2005, Rogers was charged with a Class A misdemeanor assault charge with regard to Rodriguez and a Class C misdemeanor assault charge with regard to FSN Southwest cameraman David Mammeli. Rogers was cited and released on $1,500 bond.

On July 22, 2005, Selig heard Rogers' appeal of his suspension; on July 27, Selig upheld the suspension. However, on August 9, 2005, independent arbitor Shyam Das ruled that Selig's actions exceeded his authority and Rogers was reinstated effective the next day. Das also ruled the $50,000 fine be converted to a charitable contribution. In all, Rogers' suspension lasted 13 games.

On August 11, 2005, Rogers returned to the mound against the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park. Rogers allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings, on the way to a 16-5 Boston victory. He finished 2005 with a 3.46 ERA in 195 1/3 innings. Shortly after the regular season ended, the Rangers announced Rogers would not return to the team.

On October 5, 2005, Rodriguez filed a civil suit against Rogers and the Rangers, seeking an unspecified amount of monetary damages.

On March 26, 2006, Rogers reached an agreement with the prosecution; that if he completed an anger management course within four months, the Class A misdemeanor would be reduced to a Class C misdemeanor.

On December 8, 2005, Rogers signed a two-year, $16 million contract with the Detroit Tigers. Ironically, he would be playing in the same stadium where fans (whom he saluted by taking off his cap) booed him sporadically at the All-Star Game five months previously. He was booed because if he'd decided against participating in the game, Tigers pitcher Jeremy Bonderman would've been chosen to replace him, which is what Detroit fans wanted. Instead, Rogers took his place on the All-Star roster, leaving Bonderman with a long weekend off. Perhaps he was also booed because of the camera incident (see above).

As of August 2, 2006, Rogers is 11-5 with a 4.63 ERA.

"We've needed a guy like that for a long time. I'm glad we went out and got him. ... He means a lot to our team and to guys like me." -- Tigers starter Jeremy Bonderman, on Kenny Rogers

Statistics

* Rogers secured the role of starting pitcher in the 2006 All-Star Game.
