Slap, once again you took someone on my radar. I bow to your prowress.

Those Cheap Bastards are proud to select:

Dizzy Dean, P, Cardinals/Cubs/Browns

Post-Season: 1934 World Series, 1938 World Series
Awards: All-Star (4): 1934-1937; National League MVP 1934

Jay Hanna "Dizzy" Dean, the brash Cardinals fireballer, burst upon the big league scene in 1932 and averaged 24 wins over his first five full campaigns. A winner of four consecutive National League strikeout crowns, "Diz" was 30-7 in 1934 (the last National League pitcher to record 30 wins) when he and his brother Paul led the "Gashouse Gang" to the World Championship. A broken toe suffered in the 1937 All-Star Game led to an arm injury that eventually shortened his playing days. He later embarked on a successful broadcasting career.

Quote
"As a ballplayer, Dizzy Dean was a natural phenomenon, like the Grand Canyon or the Great Barrier Reef. Nobody ever taught him baseball and he never had to learn. He was just doing what came naturally when a scout named Don Curtis discovered him on a Texas sandlot and gave him his first contract."
Red Smith

Did You Know... that Dizzy Dean made his big league debut on the final day of the Cardinals' 1930 season, surrendering just three hits as he defeated the Pirates 3-1?

and

(Quite a steal here, methinks)

Rod Carew, 2B, Twins/Angels

Post-Season: 1969 ALCS, 1970 ALCS, 1979 ALCS, 1982 ALCS
Awards: All-Star (18): 1967-1984; American League Most Valuable Player 1977; AL Rookie of the Year 1967

Rod Carew lined, chopped and bunted his way to 3,053 career hits. His seven batting titles are surpassed only by Ty Cobb, Tony Gwynn and Honus Wagner, and equaled only by Rogers Hornsby and Stan Musial. He used a variety of relaxed, crouched batting stances to hit over .300 in 15 consecutive seasons with the Twins and Angels, achieving a .328 lifetime average. He was honored as American League Rookie of the Year in 1967, won the league MVP 10 years later and was named to 18 straight All-Star teams. He remains a national hero in Panama.

Quote
"He has an uncanny ability to move the ball around as if the bat were some kind of magic wand."
Ken Holtzman

Did You Know... that Rod Carew's seven steals of home in 1969 is a single-season total surpassed only by Ty Cobb?

Killericon gets himself a relief pitcher, one of only 4 in the hall of fame, Hoyt Wilhelm.



James Hoyt Wilhelm (July 26, 1922 in Huntersville, North Carolina - August 23, 2002 in Sarasota, Florida) was an American relief pitcher in Major League Baseball. Born in Huntersville, North Carolina, he was best known for his knuckleball, which enabled him to have great longevity – occasionally as a starting pitcher, but mainly as a specialist relief man (in which role he won 124 games, still the record for relief pitchers). He is recognized as the first pitcher to have saved 200 games in his career.

Much travelled, his clubs included the New York Giants (1952-56), Baltimore Orioles (1958-62), Chicago White Sox (1963-68), and spells with the St. Louis Cardinals, Cleveland Indians, California Angels, Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers, with whom he was playing when he eventually retired after the 1972 season.

His success as a reliever helped the gradual change in usage patterns of pitchers, and the popularity of the concept of a "relief ace". Along with Phil Niekro, Wilhelm is considered by many one of the greatest knuckleballers to have played the game, and he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985.

The high point of Wilhelm’s career came at a time when his role as a pitcher was in flux. During his first six years in the majors, Wilhelm appeared in 361 games, all in relief. But in 1958, Cleveland manager Bobby Bragan used him occasionally as a starter, and Wilhelm continued in that dual role after a mid-season trade to Baltimore. On September 20, sporting a 2-10 won-lost record, he got the start against the New York Yankees, who had already clinched the American League pennant. The opposing pitcher was Don Larsen, who two years earlier had thrown a perfect game in the World Series. On this drizzly evening, Wilhelm fashioned his own gem, striking out eight and throwing the only no-hitter of his career against the soon-to-be World Series champs.

Just a few weeks before, on August 6, Wilhelm nearly pitched a rare "no-hitter in relief." Relieving Billy O'Dell at the start of the ninth inning, Wilhelm held the White Sox hitless for 8 2/3 innings before finally surrendering a hit in the 17th. Only Ernie Shore ever fashioned a longer spell of no-hit relief.

Although his accomplishments as a pitcher are well known, Wilhelm also holds an interesting record as a batter. On April 23, 1952, in his second game with the New York Giants, Wilhelm came to the plate for the first time in the majors. Facing rookie Dick Hoover of the Boston Braves, Wilhelm swung and sliced a home run over the short right-field fence at the Polo Grounds. Although he played 21 seasons and went to bat a total of 432 times in his career, he never hit another home run.

RHP Rich Gossage White Sox, Pirates, Yankees

Richard Michael Gossage (Goose)




Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 3", Weight 217 lb.

Born July 5, 1951 in Colorado Springs, CO

Debut April 16, 1972
Final Game August 8, 1994
  • One of the most intimidating pitchers ever. He began his career as a starter, but Chuck Tanner turned him into a closer.

  • His 310 saves are 16th all time.

  • Led the AL in saves three times, second in the AL in saves twice.

  • Finished 3rd in AL MVP balloting in 1980 and 9th in 1981.

  • Finished top six in AL Cy Young balloting five times.

  • Nine time All Star.

  • 1002 games are 10th all time for pitchers.

"Hitting in a game is no different than hitting in a home run contest. It pisses me off to say Barry Bonds is the greatest hitter. He's playing in a wussy era. The game is soft. You never get thrown at today. Last thing a hitter has to worry about today is getting hit. The first thing Hank Aaron had to worry about is: Am I going to survive this at-bat because I'm black."

With nice guys like Mathewson and Maddux in my rotation, I decided my pitching staff needed some scary guys.

If Goose wasn't nearly killing Ron Cey in the World Series, Big D was dotting the biggest guy in the opposing lineup and then glaring at him all the way to first base.

You know, I kind of thought the same thing after taking Walter Johnson. I remember reading somewhere that he was a good guy who was actually afraid of hitting batters with his fastball (which Ty Cobb reportedly would take full advantage of by crowding the plate when he faced him), so I figured getting a couple of nasties like Gibson and The Big Unit would even things out.

To finish off round 13 I'll take Ferguson Jenkins, P, Chicago Cubs/Texas Rangers/Boston Red Sox/Philadelphia Phillies.

Ferguson, a hard throwing Canadian, will fill out my starting rotation. He was dominant with the Cubs in the late-'60's and early-70's. He also had one of the best hitting seasons for a pitcher in 1971 with six home runs and a .478 slugging %.

My next selection will be my favorite player when I was a kid, Don Mattingly, 1B, New York Yankees.

I'm picking Donnie Baseball more for his great glove than his bat, which was pretty damn good, too. I'd much rather have Mattingly playing 1B and letting Hank Greenberg DH.

Between 1983 and 1989 there weren't many better ballplayers than Don Mattingly. Then his back started to become a problem, robbing him of his power, though he still put together good seasons in 1993 and 1994.

My favorite Mattingly moment was when he hit a home run in the 1995 ALDS vs. Seattle (his first and only postseason series) and the Yankee Stadium crowd very loudly chanted, "Donnie Baseball, clap, clap, clap clap clap, Donnie Baseball" until he came out for a curtain call.

His entry in the New Bill James Historical Baseball Abstract (ranked the #12 first basemen of all-time) is short and sweet, "100% ballplayer, 0% bull****".
