Well, the fast run of picks made my choice easy since Pujols, Morgan and Mathews were my top three hitters I was going to pick. Therefore, the Brooklyn Superbas select SP Bob Feller



Feller had a 266-162 record with a 3.25 ERA and 2,581 strikeouts.

What made these accomplishments even more impressive is that he lost almost 4 full years to military service. And we're talking PRIME YEARS here people. In his 1941 season he had 25 wins and 260 K's. In his first full season back in 1946, he had 26 wins and 348 K's. So even taking conservative estimates of his lost production, he was a 300 Win, 3,000 K quality picther if there ever was one. And this was at a time when only one pitcher in history had 3,000 K's.

6 X 20 game winner
7 X league leading strikeout totals
6X top 10 MVP voting
5X league leading IP
4X league leading shutouts
1 ERA title
8X All Star
