Stan the Man Musial Number 6

LF/1B St. Louis

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



- 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.



Robert Moses "Lefty" Grove (March 6, 1900 - May 22, 1975) was one of the greatest pitchers in Major League Baseball history.
Born in Lonaconing, Maryland, Grove was a sandlot star in the Baltimore area during the 1910s. His performance caught the eye of Jack Dunn, the owner of the minor league Baltimore Orioles, who also discovered Babe Ruth.
Grove joined the Orioles in 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 in strikeouts every season.
Grove remained in the minor leagues through 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, Dunn agreed to sell Grove's rights to the Philadelphia 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 and won the first of a record nine earned run average (ERA) titles with a mark of 2.51. In 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 to 1931), as well as two straight World Championships 1929 and 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 in 1931, making him one of only a handful of pitchers to achieve this honor. His MVP 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 in 1932 and third behind the Washington Senators and Yankees in 1933. Following the 1933 season, team owner Connie Mack sold Grove to the 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, 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. 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 and 15-4 in 1939.
Grove retired in 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), at 48 percent above average.
Grove was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1947. He died in Norwalk, Ohio and was interred in the Frostburg Memorial Cemetery in Frostburg, Maryland.
In 1999, Grove ranked number 23 on 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.

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.

It's all good by me; he posted why in the NHL draft.

I've got no issues, and I'm up next anyways....but I'm eager about my pick....I've got a steal lined up.

He can take all the time he needs.

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. 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.

Hey Bronco LB, I see you're looking at the thread. Are you going to be able to rate the ATD football teams?

Thanks,

I have already filled my starting outfield with this move

Frank Robinson RF

Cincinnati-Baltimore-Los Angeles Dodgers-California-Cleveland



- 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.
