The Brooklyn Superbas trade for the 35th pick and select SP Bob Gibson.



Gibson pitched for 17 years and compiled a 251-174 record, 3,117 strikeouts and a tidy 2.91 ERA (one of only 5 post-deadball era pitchers with over 3,500 IP and a sub-3.00 ERA).

1 MVP (1968)
2 World Series MVPs
2 Cy Youngs (1968, 1970)
9 Gold Gloves
8 time All Star

For all that, he was even better in the post-season with a 7-2 record and a 1.89 ERA, 0.889 WHIP and a 5.41 SO/BB ratio. He was a workhorse, pitching 27 innings in each of the 3 World Series he appeared in.

Gibson was also pretty good with the bat in his hands, hitting as high as .303 in 124 plate appearances in 1970 and ending his career with 24 homeruns and adding 2 more in World Series play.
